The movie may not be due to hit cinemas until April, but the latest Omega Limited Edition Seamaster Diver 300m has already been revealed...
Extraordinary, elegant, and full of surprises the latest ode to Bond from luxury watch brand Omega is set to make a lasting impression. The Seamaster Diver 300M Limited Edition is here to celebrate, not only the upcoming release of No Time to Die, but also the 50th anniversary of On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.
A unique blend of golds, whites, reds a few extras that relate to the film, this 007 edition is extremely difficult not to like. The watch looks almost vintage with a domed crystal, slightly-smaller case, and weathered-looking hands and markers. And, a first for Bond watch series, this is made out of titanium, giving a light ‘barely there’ feel on the wrist.
But this isn’t the first time Bond will be seen sporting an Omega watch, and in fact, ever since switching his allegiance in 1995’s Goldeneye, he’s sported the brand in every film hence. The switch was made by the movie’s costume designer Lindy Hemming who said, “I was convinced that Commander Bond, a naval man, a diver and a discreet gentleman of the world would wear the Seamaster with the blue dial.”
So, in honour of the upcoming release, we’re turning back the watch, and taking a deep dive into the Bond Omega archives…
In Casino Royale (2006), 007 takes down Le Chiffre over a casino gaming table at the casino in order to financially embarrass him. Daniel Craig wears a Seamaster Diver 300M Co-Axial and a Planet Ocean 600M Co-Axial.
The past catches up with Bond in SKYFALL, a film suffused with meditations on mortality and plenty of action. 007 relies on a Planet Ocean 600M and a somewhat dressier Aqua Terra, both powered by OMEGA Co-Axial calibres.
It's fitting that an ex-naval commander would choose a Seamaster. In SPECTRE, Bond wears two. The OMEGA Seamaster 300 SPECTRE Limited Edition with rare lollipop seconds hand and black and grey NATO strap; and the OMEGA Aqua Terra 150m: a striking watch with a blue dial that recalls OMEGA's rich maritime heritage and Bond's naval background.
