With the release of the trailer for the new James Bond film “No Time to Die” Omega have also taken the opportunity to announce the new ‘Seamaster 300m 007-edition’ watch – which is identical to the watch worn by 007 in No Time to Die.
Omega have in the past drawn criticism for their ‘Bond’ watches – with models displaying the infamous 007 logo on the hands, or the rifling of bonds gun on dial, however this model embodies heritage styling queues such as domed sapphire glass and tropical lume.
Featuring the Ministry of Defence Broad Arrow on the dial – harking back to Omega’s history in producing watches for the British military, this is the only subtle indication of a heritage connection to the military from the front. Engraved on the caseback is a series of numbers, which follow the format for genuine military-issue watches, including the number 62, which refers to the year of the very first James Bond film, Dr No.
This 42mm Seamaster, in lightweight Grade 2 Titanium, sports a brown tropical aluminium bezel ring and dial and is slightly slimmer than the standard Diver 300M models thanks to the doming of the sapphire-crystal glass. it is available on a Grade 2 Titanium mesh bracelet or as seen here on the new ‘Bond’ NATO. It is powered by OMEGA’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer 8806 – a variant of Omegas 8800 calibre with no Date
Interestingly and of note is; this is not a limited edition series watch and will be available to the public through authorised dealers and Omega boutiques from February 2020 starting at £6520
