In The Spotlight | OMEGA Seamaster & James Bond
Since the OMEGA Seamaster Diver 300m made its first on-screen appearance in the James Bond film ‘GoldenEye’, OMEGA have remained close to the sophisticated 007 spy – accompanying him on every adventure since 1995.
For more than 170 years, OMEGA timepieces have been to space and back, trawled the deep depths of the oceans, and sat regally on the wrists of world leaders. Amongst all these great achievements, OMEGA can proudly say they have also timed the suave spy’s missions.
OMEGA Seamaster “James Bond” Limited Edition
With the legendary divers’ watch forever being recognised as the “Bond Watch” to hardcore fans, OMEGA have launched a limited-edition timepiece to commemorate the 50th anniversary of ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’ – the film that propelled George Lazenby to fame as the role of James Bond.
Limited to just 7,007, this thrilling James Bond timepiece is crafted with plenty of secret surprises, all of which we are going to uncover.
Starting with the opening sequence in the movie, the timepiece pays tribute to the iconic gun barrel. Taking centre stage, the gun barrel motif is laser engraved on a black ceramic and PVD dial and replicates the 9mm diameter of the barrel exactly.
In place of the 12 o’clock hour marker is the Bond family coat-of-arms, held in an 18ct yellow gold along with the hands and remaining indexes. We love the royal feel it displays! An 18ct yellow gold plate at the side of the 42mm case unfolds the special limited-edition number, giving it a personal touch.
And the surprises don’t stop there. On the 7th day of each month the famous 007 font appears for everyone to see, and when the lights go out a number 50 appears in the SuperLumiNova of the 10 o’clock baton hour marker. Talk about secret services!
With the watch being a Seamaster Diver 300m, it holds the same qualities as the other timepieces in the range. A ceramic bezel, rubber strap and in-house Calibre 8800 automatic movement allows divers and fans alike to take this watch from their on-land adventures to their deep-sea explorations, so you can be just like Bond himself!
A special box for a special watch
Finally, a special watch needs a special home. A luxurious 007 themed box houses this exciting timepiece, providing an alternative stainless-steel bracelet and tool alongside to take your watch from day to night.
OMEGA Seamaster watches have almost become synonymous with the world’s favourite spy. Since GoldenEye, OMEGA watches have been featured in every Bond film including Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, and Spectre. With both OMEGA and 007 boasting reliability, adventurous spirit and modern-day style, it’s no surprise they are perfectly matched.
