Eli Manning The New James Bond In His Citizen Watch?

December 15, 2015 by risa

Look who’s taken over a full page ad in New York Newsday!  Eli Manning is looking mighty sharp in his Citizen watch.  At first, I had to do a double-take.  After all, we just did an article last week on The Sexy and Incomparable James Bond Watch, and Manning was looking very Bond-like in the color ad.  We heard that Daniel Craig wasn’t so keen on doing Bond again – maybe Eli would make a fine replacement after his run with the New York Giants!  Check out this comparison.  Don’t you think Eli would make a fine James Bond?Eli Manning

In the New York Giants victory last night (12/14/15) against the Miami Dolphins, Manning’s performance was critical in their 31-24 win.  With this win, the Giants moved into a 3-way tie for first place in the NFC East.

But getting back to Eli’s Bond-like performance, as ESPN wrote, “New York’s Eli Manning went 27-for-31 for 337 yards and four scores. His passer rating of 151.5 was his highest since 2009, and his 87-percent completion percentage was a career high.”

Citizen has been outfitting classy celebrities for decades.  In addition to Eli Manning, their current ambassadors are:

  • Kelly Clarkson – Three-Time Grammy Winner
  • Matt Kenseth – Two-Time DAYTONA 500® Champion (2009, 2012)
