OMEGA’s favorite spy gets a sleek and stylish tribute with a Seamaster Diver 300M limited-edition set
When you think of spy action films, only one character comes to mind: the ever-dapper James Bond. He has been known for his wide arsenal of gadgets and weapons, coupled with his highly-trained mind to outsmart and overcome any opponent. But as the decades pass by, his assortment of goods changes–cars get faster, weapons get stealthier, and his outfits get sleeker. However, for almost 25 years, one item remains a staple in the James Bond style: the OMEGA watch.
Ever since the release of GoldenEye in 1995, James Bond has been sporting the elegance of OMEGA for his famous on-screen missions. Now, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the film On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, the sixth in the James Bond franchise, OMEGA has released a special Seamaster Diver 300M James Bond Limited Edition Set. Each of the 257 sets created for this collection is comprised of two unique Seamaster Diver 300M watches inside a Globe-Trotter suitcase, bound by black and grey NATO inspired straps.
The first timepiece features a black rubber strap and stainless steel case. On the side, an 18K yellow gold plate is engraved with a Limited Edition number. The bezel is black ceramic with a white enamel diving scale.
For a more eye-catching look, the second model is in 18K yellow gold with a black rubber strap. An engraved numbered plate is also screwed onto the watch’s side, and the black ceramic bezel features a diving scale in OMEGA Ceragold.
Both watches feature a spiral-brushed black ceramic dial and, notable to fans of the franchise, a very distinctive touch: a laser-engraved gun-barrel design, hinting at the James Bond intro scene. Some details are also undercover: a secret number 50 is revealed in the luminescent material at the 10 o’clock hour marker, the Bond family crest at the 12 o’clock hour marker, and the iconic number 7 from 007 is revealed at the date disc every 7th of the month.
James Bond has worn an OMEGA Seamaster since 1995, and you too can follow his style with OMEGA’s most advanced techniques and materials–just the kind of innovation you’d expect when celebrating James Bond.
