I guess when Gettler and the crew run into the building with Vesper and the case, it takes Bond a while to get in, and as they are running around taking defence positions inside, I presume one of the goons, or even Gettler, quickly meets Mr White and gives him the case for him to move to the next building, where we then see him watching at the end...?
Far-fetched I know, but I don't know the real answer...guess it's just one of the many movie fabrications we just have to deal with..!

We never did see what happened to that case. Bond doesn't seem to have delivered it to M in Sienna. Maybe that's where he got a brand-new Aston Martin so quickly. . .

Nothing got switched that I'm aware of - unless it has something to do with Bond realizing that Vesper had switched sides.
Anyway, of course Bond didn't deliver the case to M, or get his new Aston Martin 'so quickly' in Sienna. As has been pointed out in other threads, it took time to track Mr. White to his Italian villa - time enough for MI6 to be satisfied that Mathis was innocent of collusion with Quantum and to set him up in his own Italian villa. I think it probably took M longer than that to decide she could trust 007 with another cherry Aston.

I've noticed it but never really thought of it as a flaw. Like some have stated, I always figured it floated to a close enough spot where White was able to grab it.
I originally saw the suitcase floating in the water. Then I saw Mr. White walking away with it. It's possible that x007AceOfSpades is right.

I have argued that Bond must have spent at least a few weeks recovering in the Italian clinic, then spent a few more wandering aimlessly with Vesper, and that the last scene must have taken place a good 18 months after the showdown in Venice, but others have argued that it wouldn't take that long to track down a cell phone, and that a gangster like Mr. White wouldn't keep a cell phone that long anyway. Exactly - that's why it took so long to track him down! Long enough for 007 to have gain some perspective and to present himself as the well-dressed, cool-as-ice blunt instrument that we've all come to know and love. Long enough for MI6 to clear Mathis and set him up up in a villa in Italy, anyway.
But not long enough, apparently, for Bond to cool down and seek Vesper's handlers dispassionately. All his emotional recovery is for naught once he has Mr. White in custody.
Ah, well, that was almost four years ago (long enough for Quantum to have either been decimated or to have regained lost ground). I wonder what James has been up to since?
