BOND 25 starts filming in Jamaica with Daniel Craig and Jeffrey Wright

30 April, 2019

BOND 25 filming really got started past weekend with Daniel Craig on set in the streets of Port Antonio in Jamaica.

SPOILER ALERT - this article contains some Bond 25 plot (the plot that was mentioned in the official Bond 25 press release)

Also present were director Cary Fukunaga, special effects supervisor Chris Corbould, Daniel Craig's stunt double and actors Jeffrey Wright (who reprises his role as Felix Leiter), and actor Billy Magnussen who was announced during the Bond 25 press call on April 25th.

We don't know yet which role Billy Magnussen will play, According to the press release, this is the plot, the first part of which we can assume is the part they are filming now in Jamaica.

"Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology."

So the Billy Magnussen character might be another ally, related to CIA or other secret service, or some kind of expert related to the kidnapped scientist.

Now let's take a look at the products and clothes on set (for more information and details, see the Ultimate Guide to BOND 25 Products and Locations).

In the harbour town Port Antonio in Jamaica, Daniel Craig was seen driving a vintage blue Land Rover Series III. The car has a spare wheel on the bonnet and extra plastic wheel arches an optional extra).

Daniel Craig himself was wearing a pair of Vuarnet 06 sunglasses.

This is a pair he has been wearing privately in the past year as well, so it's not sure if the sunglasses are part of the official Bond outfit, but it does seem that way. The glasses are currently a bit hard to find as the brown model is out of stock on the Vuarnet website. As soon as it is available, it'll be posted here.

The Vuarnet 06 frame is a classic, it featured in the 1969 film La Piscine with Alain Delon. Available at Vuarnet.com (going in and out of stock in the US and EU) .

James Bond's casual outfit in Jamaica in Bond 25

Bond's wristwatch looks like a new and not yet released special edition of the Omega Seamaster 300 Co-Axial Master. The watch doesn't have a date window (unlike all current Seamaster 300m Professional watches), and what looks like gold indicators on the black bezel. It's not yet clear what kind of strap is attached to the watch: it's light grey, maybe a Nato strap but it seems different.

The watch could be especially made for the film and released later this year as a special Bond model similar to how a unique Omega Seamaster 300 was made for SPECTRE.

Craig wears brown (tan) Sperry Gold Cup Authentic Original Rivingston Boat Shoes, available on Amazon for approx $150 (most sizes sold out) or on Runnwalk.com (several sizes still in stock).

The light jeans are grey cotton jeans from Tom Ford, the brand that provides Bond with a big part of his wardrobe since Quantum of Solace. The jeans are currently hard to find.

Jeffrey Wright as Felix Leiter
Ray-Ban WayfarerFelix Leiter wears a pair of white linen pants, a light turquoise short sleeve linen shirt over a white t-shirt and grey/green suede shoes. The only thing identified, is his pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses. It's not certain if he wears these glasses in the film, or if these are Jeffrey Wright's personal shades. He also wears a stainless steel watch with dark dial on a dark strap.

The watch seems to be an analogue watch with steel case, black dial and brown leather strap. A crown and two buttons, and what looks like two subdials indicate a chronograph. It can't be identified yet unless we find a better image.

No final IDs on this outfit yet, but stay tuned on this page and the BOND 25 Guide for updates!

The black shirt is so similar to the Zara one I just bought. The material, pocket, buttons. Identical.
Can't wait for Bond #25
