Q. Which three Bond clothes or accessories do you wear the most?

Q. If you could keep only 1 item of your Bond collection, what would it be?
A. Oh wow, that’s really tough…! My vinyl records collection or watches collection... Sorry, no chance to decide!

Q. What is your most popular post/video?
A. Currently the release of my annual artwork tribute postcard illustrated by British Artist Graham Kennedy. 50th anniversary LALD 1973-2023 post on Facebook & Instagram, December 20, 2023.

Q. Which Bond location do you still want to visit?
A. That's not easy... They're many... Maybe the Iguazú falls in South America.

Q. If you could meet any Bond actor (even if they’re no longer with us), who would that be and why?
A. The one and only Sir Sean Connery! He's just an iconic legend for me.

Q. Which Bond-related song do you want to add to the Bond Lifestyle Playlist on Spotify / YouTube?
A. 'The look of love' by Dusty Springfield (Casino Royale, 1967). Such a fantastic ballad.

Q. Rolex or Omega?
A. I'm Swiss! So, both of course!
