Now it won’t be long before the world’s famous spy will return to to the big screen with his 25th adventure. And of course, this new movie will bring another treat for all watch lovers, since Omega has once again provided James Bond with a beautiful timepiece – with the help of the secret agent himself, Daniel Craig. So let’s take a look at the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition.
Since 1995 – and the movie “GoldenEye” – James Bond has been wearing an Omega instead of a Rolex on his wrist. And it was also a Seamaster Diver 300M. Normally pimped by Q with useful, often life-saving functions, which have tipped the scale in favor of Bond more than once in hairy situations.
Omega and James Bond can look back on a total of 25 years and 8 watches in the course of their cooperation. Without a successful series, which will surely find a worthy continuation in “No Time to Die”.
The Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition has been purposefully built with military needs in mind and was designed with input from actor Daniel Craig and the producers fo the new James Bond film. After all, who could know better what demands will be placed on the new timepiece?
Each 42 mm timepiece has been crafted from Titanium. This special material is particularly strong and lightweight, making it perfect for the tough outdoor operations of a secret agent. The use of aluminium for the bezel and dial also helps to reduce weight. Omega has chosen a color that replicates the aged brown hue that certain vintage dials turn over time. This color tone is referred to by collectors as “tropical”. The generous application of Super-LumiNova ensures that the Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition is easy to read in all lighting conditions.
On the caseback, you’ll find a series of numbers, which follow the format for genuine military-issue watches. “0552” is a naval code-number, with “923 7697” being the number for a divers’ watch. The letter “A” signifies a watch with a screw-in crown, while 007 is, of course, James Bond’s iconic agent number. Finally, the number “62” refers to the year of the very first James Bond film.
The Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition is driven by an impressive movement – the Omega Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8806, which has achieved the industry’s highest standards of precision, chronometric performance and magnetic resistance.
The mesh bracelet of the Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition is also made of titanium. A striped NATO strap in dark brown, grey and beige is also available.
