Omega Releases New James Bond Seamaster Watch

 

What is it:

A Seamaster 300m, like we said. That means Commander Bond gets a 41mm steel case with blue ceramic bezel  on a blue, red and grey striped NATO strap. The dial – quite unusually for Omega and for Bond watches – is polished white ceramic with blue hour markers and blue skeleton hands. The red seconds hand has a “007” counterweight that we’ve seen deployed before.

Inside is Omega Calibre 2507 – a co-axial automatic with a 48 hour power reserve. It’s been used on Seamasters for a few years, including the model produced to mark James Bond’s 50th anniversary. The watch will be produced in a “limited” run of 7,007 pieces, priced at £3,720. You’ll be able to buy one from July 6th.Omega Seamaster James Bond replica watch.


The Design:

It may be inspired by the formal regalia of a Commander in the British Navy, but this is one heck of a jaunty, casual look for James Bond. The NATO strap does a lot to that end, of course, as does that bright white dial with the pops of blue and red everywhere. It’s awfully patriotic, of course, and will no doubt give some people a Stars and Stripes vibe as much as a British one. It’s also reminiscent of Omega’s work creating sailing watches for Team New Zealand. And apart from that seconds hand, it doesn’t have an awful lot that screams James Bond.

Why Now?

According to Omega this watch marks three noteworthy anniversaries of James Bond films: 50 years since You Only Live Twice, 40 years since The Spy Who Loved Me, and 20 years since Tomorrow Never Dies. If we were being unkind, we’d say that given there have been 21 Bond films over the past 60-odd years you could pretty much throw a rock and hit a significant date, but there you go. Apparently these are three films in which Bond specifically appears wearing the Commander’s uniform, so that is something.

As for why James Bond wears a Seamaster at all, we hear that costume designer Lindy Hemming, who worked on all the Pierce Brosnan Bond films, is to thank. She says “I was convinced that Commander Bond, a naval man, a diver, and a discreet gentleman of the world would wear this watch as opposed to the one everyone expected me to use.

Omega did also provide Seamaster 300s to actual Royal Navy divers in the late 1960s, so perhaps the link is more historically accurate than she knew.

The Exclusive Version:

If a limited run of more than 7,000 watches doesn’t seem quite rare enough for you, Omega is going to have you covered. There will also be seven pieces made in 18k yellow gold – Bond, to the best of our knowledge, has never worn a gold watch, but we have to admit it’s quite a looker.

Number 007 of the gold watches, alongside one of the stainless steel variants and one even rarer, yet-to-be-announced version in white gold will be auctioned off later this year for charity.
