Don’t miss: James Bond: 5 Things You Probably Didn't Know
The film begins with James Bond enjoying a peaceful life in Jamaica after leaving active service. Unfortunately, his holiday is cut short when his old friend, Felix Leiter, shows up and asks Bond for his help to rescue a highly dangerous kidnapped scientist.
Bond jumps into action as he tracks down this evil villain who is equipped with a dangerous piece of new technology—all while looking extremely suave and sexy while he does it.
Of course, over the years, we’ve all at some point wanted to go up to a bartender and ask for a martini shaken, not stirred or to don one of Bond’s incredible suits while speeding around corners in an Aston Martin Valhalla. But have you ever wondered what it would actually cost to spend the day as James Bond?
Thankfully, you don’t have to wonder for long because Charles Tyrwhitt, a British multi-channel men’s clothing retailer has done the math.
The first thing we need to take a look at is his suave outfit. His custom-made suit would likely cost about £3,615 while his Vuarnet Legend 06 Sunglasses come up to £235. The sleek Omega Seamaster Diver 300M ‘007 Edition’ watch that he wears comes up to £9,450.
Bond is also always staying in swanky hotels and flying around the world and so you will need to calculate the cost of a first-class trip from London to Rome which comes up to £5,900 and a night at a suite in the Palazzo Gattini which is £567.
Bond is also rarely seen without a drink in his hand so you will need to factor in the cost of a bottle of Bollinger which comes up to £126 and a bottle of Macallan 18-year which comes up to £145.
Last but not least, Bond is never without his sexy car so we need to add in the cost of his Aston Martin Valhalla which comes up to £578,000.
All in all, Charles Tyrwhitt has revealed that it would cost a whopping £598,038 (S$1,099,427) to spend the day as James Bond.
We don’t know about you but none of these numbers has scared us off wanting to whip off our expensive sunglasses while saying, “Bond, James Bond” with a smug expression on our faces.
