Gadgets of the Day: Swatch 007 Bond Villain collection

While Ernst Stavro Blofeld is indisputably the best Bond villain (a white cat, facial scar and volcano lair are tough to beat), plenty of others have come close to rivalling his evil genius. Which is why we’re affording a disturbing cackle to Swatch’s new 22-strong tribute to the super-baddies.

The Swiss watchmaker has crafted a timepiece for every black-hearted Bond-botherer in the 007 series, from Rosa Klubb to Scaramanga to the latest Quantum of Solace villain, Dominic Greene.

While some look a little on the plasticky side, Oddjob has been given a gold-coated, stainless steel number (left) to celebrate his role in Goldfinger. No sign of any tiny bowler hats, though, sadly.

We’re also particularly fond of Hugo Drax’s Moonraker watch, which features a black and white face and is engraved with the words ‘Drax Enterprise Corporation’. Next stop, Bond Villain business cards.
