When James Bond embarks on his next mission, a new Omega watch will appear on screen. The Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition has been purposefully built with military needs in mind and was even designed with input from actor, Daniel Craig. This non-limited watch will be placed in OMEGA’s iconic current collection from February – available to customers either on a titanium mesh bracelet, or a striped NATO strap in dark brown, grey and beige, with 007 engraved on the loop. Each 42mm timepiece has been crafted from Grade 2 Titanium, which is used for the case and bracelet with its innovative adjustable buckle. This special material is particularly strong and lightweight, making it perfect for an undercover agent. Special new doming of the sapphire-crystal glass has also created a slightly slimmer watch than the standard Seamaster Diver 300M models.
For this watch, Omega has introduced an aluminium dial, with a colour that replicates the aged brown hue that certain vintage dials turn over time. This colour tone is referred to by collectors as “tropical”. The aluminium bezel ring of this watch also features the same colour shade. 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 diver’s 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. Inside, it is driven by the Omega Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8806, which has achieved the industry’s highest standards of precision, chronometric performance and magnetic resistance.
