The recent release of Spectre has shaken (not stirred!) up a national case of Bond fever.

In celebration of the timeless elegance of Mr Bond, silversmith Grant Macdonald has created a Timeless 100 collection in collaboration with Aston Martin, showcasing the best of British design.

Shake up an iconic Vesper martini – Bond’s drink of choice – in a hand-crafted sterling silver cocktail shaker, and drink it from matching sterling silver martini glasses. Worthy of the suave secret agent, the glasses are hand-engraved with an intricate cross hatch pattern, recalling the motif used for the carbon-fibre on Aston Martin sports cars, and are lined in 24 carat gold.

The Timeless 100 collection comprises of two pieces, a small-scale replica of the iconic Bond car, the Aston Martin DB5, and the Aston Martin Martini Set. Both limited to 100 editions. www.grantmacdonald.com
