OMEGA has been equipping James Bond with its Seamaster timepieces since GoldenEye in 1995. This year, celebrating its alliance with the world’s most handsome spy, the Swiss watch maker is presenting a brand new Seamaster Diver 300M James Bond Numbered Edition in platinum.
The 42 mm diameter case of this new watch is crafted in platinum-gold, with a platinum gold plate on its side, engraved with each Numbered Edition number. Platinum is also used for the polished-brushed buckle of the watch’s black leather strap.
The watch features a black ceramic bezel ring with a platinum diving scale in positive relief. Its black enamel dial has been given a spiralling gun barrel design in 18K white gold.
As part of the OMEGA James Bond collection that was launched last year, this watch also includes a hidden number 50 within the Super-LumiNova of the 10 o’clock index – a reference to the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Elsewhere on the dial, you can find a 007 logo at 7 o’clock on the white enamel minute track, as well as 18K white gold features, including the hands, indexes and Bond family coat-of-arms at 12 o’clock.
A second Bond family coat-of-arms has been laser-engraved and filled with platinum on the sapphire crystal case-back. Its captivating final effect is completed with hand-engraved finishing in the finest detail.
Visible through the sapphire crystal case back is the self-winding OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8807 – certified at the highest standards of precision, chronometric performance and magnetic resistance.
This Seamaster Diver 300M James Bond Numbered Edition comes in its own Globe-Trotter™ suitcase, bound by NATO-inspired straps. Inside, an additional black rubber strap is included.
