    Swiss watchmaker Omega, who has been featured in several of the most recent James Bond films, has launched a James Bond Quantum of Solace-themed exhibition in Geneva.

    According to this Vialuxe News release, the exhibit will showcase costumes and memorabilia from the latest 007 film and will run through 15 January 2009:

    Following upon the global success of the 22nd James Bond adventure Quantum of Solace, Swiss watchmaker Omega will hold a Geneva exhibition that showcases costumes and memorabilia from the film. The exhibition opened on December 17th, and will conclude on January 15, 2009.

    The Omega Seamaster watch has been a prominent symbol of the modern James Bond, appearing in every movie since 1995’s GoldenEye. Bond’s current alter-ego, Daniel Craig, has kept the franchise strong, relying upon his Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M Co-Axial Chronometer to coordinate his hazardous missions.

    Visitors to Geneva’s Cite du Temps can also view the Tom Ford tuxedo which Daniel Craig wears while seeking out the bad guys during the scene at the Tosca opera performance. Olga Kurylenko’s black gown is featured with equal prominence, along with some distinctive jewelry pieces worn by the Ukrainian actress in her role as Bond girl Camille. A series of objects which are inseparable from the the imagery of Quantum of Solace join everything together, including an oil can and James Bond’s famous martini glass.
