James, James Bond. Shaken, not stirred.
Article By Steven R. Rochlin


OMEGA Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition


  Everyone loves a great action movie and James Bond is always up to the task. Bond's newest OMEGA timepiece has arrived with their Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition ($9200). With a full dossier of military-inspired details, this watch is loaded and ready to go! British agent 007's newest timepiece will be featured within the 25th James Bond film, No Time To Die, set to arrive in cinemas April 2020. Order yours now as initial shipments are nearly sold out.

Appearing on-screen will be a thrilling new Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition. First launched in 1993, the Diver 300M has built its legacy with real-life divers and style aficionados, as well as becoming the quintessential wrist-wear of James Bond. OMEGA has worked closely on the development of the Bond watch with Daniel Craig and the filmmakers, whose knowledge of James Bond has brought invaluable insight to OMEGA's watch developers and designers. Daniel Craig's own experience as 007 has also influenced this exciting final design.

Craig's influence and advice played a big role in the final result. He says, "When working with OMEGA, we decided that a lightweight watch would be key for a military man like 007. I also suggested some vintage touches and color to give the watch a unique edge. The final piece looks incredible."

The 42mm timepiece has been crafted from Grade 2 Titanium, which is used for the case and titanium mesh bracelet with its innovative adjustable buckle. This material is strong and lightweight, making it perfect for an undercover agent. To further decrease the weight, OMEGA has used "tropical" brown aluminum for the dial and bezel ring. These elements have been given a classic look, thanks to the vintage Super-LumiNova, which fills the diving scale, blackened hands and indexes.

On the caseback, you'll find a series of numbers, which follow the format for genuine military-issue watches. "0552" is the code-number specified for Navy personnel, with "923 7697" being the number for a divers' watch. The letter "A" is a code used to signify a watch with a screw-in crown, while "007" is James Bond's iconic agent number. Finally, the number "62" is the year of the very first James Bond film.

The new watch is completed by a NAIAD LOCK caseback, which keeps all of the engravings in correct alignment. Inside, it is driven by a particularly impressive movement – the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8806, which has achieved the industry's highest standards of precision, chronometric performance and magnetic resistance.

The watch will be released in OMEGA Boutiques in February 2020, yet many retailers are taking advanced orders right now. It will be available on the captivating titanium mesh bracelet, or on a striped NATO strap in dark brown, gray and beige with 007 engraved on the loop. The watches are delivered in an exclusive brown fabric pouch.
