“By the cut of your suit, you went to Oxford or wherever. Naturally you think human beings dress like that, but you wear it with such disdain. My guess is you didn’t come from money, and your school friends never let you forget it… And that makes perfect sense, since MI6 looks for maladjusted young men who give little thought to sacrificing others in order to protect queen and country. You know; former SAS types with easy smiles and expensive watches… [glances at his wrist]… Rolex?”
I’ve always relished this little exchange between Vesper Lynd and James Bond. It’s a Bond film so it’s patently absurd, but I just love how her words are dripping with contempt, yet she takes pause to note something beautiful on him.
AND THERE IS NO TIMESCALE IN THE UNIVERSE IN WHICH SUCH A CONVERSATION WILL EVER BE HAD ABOUT AN APPLE WATCH.
