An action hero on the scale of James Bond requires a timepiece that can keep up with his high-octane adventures, and for more than two decades his watch of choice has been the Omega Seamaster. As the franchise gears up for the release of the next instalment – No Time to Die – in April 2020, the watchmaker has revealed the new addition to the iconic line that will accompany him on his latest mission.
The Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition has been designed for top performance both on and off the big screen. Developed with military needs in mind, and with input from Daniel Craig and the 007 producers, it is crafted from grade 2 titanium, resulting in a watch that is both resilient and lightweight. Further increasing its wearability, the weight has been cut further with the use of brown aluminium for the dial and bezel ring.
The watch also packs in plenty of subtle details that will appeal to both enthusiasts of James Bond and military timepieces. The case back features a series of numbers following the format for military-issue watches; 0552, the code-number specified for Navy personnel, and 923 7697, the number for a divers’ watch. Meanwhile, it of course features Bond’s iconic agent number, 007, alongside ’62’, the year the first James Bond film was released.
The watch comes with a choice of titanium mesh bracelet or striped NATO strap in dark brown, grey or beige, and will be available from Omega boutiques from February.
