The Obama bow: what really happened



"Rolex?"
"No. Omega."
"Beautiful."*







* From James Bond and Versper Lind's conversation on the train to Montenegro. Actually, no one who knew the slightest thing about watches would mistake an Omega Seamaster (Bond's watch) for a Rolex. (Bond trivia: Bond wore a Rolex through most of his movies. He cut through the ropes binding him and Solitaire with a circular saw built into a Rolex Submariner in the climax of Live and Let Die. He wore a deeply ugly Seiko digital in Octopussy.)
