SEAMASTER DIVER 300M EDITION 007
Just a few weeks before the official release of the new adventures of the famous British spy, the Biel-based firm is adding a robust watch with a vintage look to its catalogue, developed in collaboration with Daniel Craig.
Inseparable since GoldenEye in 1995, the Omega Seamaster and James Bond continue their adventures on the big screen this year. Indeed, the famous British secret agent finds the iconic watchmaker cut out for the big screen in No Time to Die, the 25th opus in the saga, due for release in April 2020. The British actor Daniel Craig who plays the spy for the 5th and last time, took part in designing this new Seamaster Diver 300M Edition 007 which will join the firm’s catalogue in February.
Robust but light thanks to its 42mm-diameter case machined in grade 2 titanium, this non-limited edition features a dark aluminum dial evoking the dark brown color known as “tropical,” a black faded by the patina of time. The same material and color are found on the graduated ring that supports the unidirectional rotating bezel. The vintage touch sought by Daniel Craig is accentuated by the presence of orange vanilla Super-LumiNova® that adorns the open-worked sword-shaped hour and minute hands, the second hand finished with a line of red varnish, the geometric hour markers, the timer that runs along the flange and the diving scale.
The time elements—hours, minutes and seconds—are delivered by the Omega 8806, a self-winding mechanical movement which provides 55 hours of power reserve and has Master Chronometer certification, a guarantee of resistance and reliability.
This Seamaster Diver 300M Edition 007 can be worn either with a Milanese mesh bracelet made of titanium or a NATO with dark brown, sand beige and medium grey stripes.
