Britain’s most notorious spy has always been a man of impeccable style and as such – you can be certain he’ll be sporting the latest in technology when it comes to gadgets in the movie. The highly anticipated last instalment of the Bond franchise – Spectre – that hit cinemas this fall is no exception.
As Goldfinger marked the change of the classic Rolex to the more aggressive and technological Omega, the latest James Bond movie sees Daniel Craig change a few impressive models of the brand that are worth looking into. For an entire generation the Omega watch has become synonymous with 007’s signature timeless style and refined demeanour.
Casino Royale saw Britain’s favourite spy wearing two stunning Omega models –the Seamaster 300m chronometer and a 45.5 mm Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m Co-Axial chronometer. The choice of timepieces was particularly fitting as a lot of the action in the movie takes place underwater. The blue-faced Seamaster 300m is a classically elegant stainless steel creation with automatic movement and blue bezel. Its original price is between $1,000.00 and $1,299.00. With such features it’s no wonder Omega’s Seamaster 300m makes an appearance in 2015’s Spectre as well and the Swiss brand have even announced the release a limited-edition version of the movie-worn watch on a black-and-gray NATO strap.
The Omega Seamaster 300 “SPECTRE” Limited Edition boasts the same clean elegant design as the basic model, albeit with a few minor changes to the design. Its black dial with a 12-hour scale is made of LiquidMetal and a two-way rotation of the bezel indicates a second time zone. 7,007 models will be produced, priced at $7,500 each and made available at select Omega boutiques.
The Seamaster 600m is another spectacular watch with impressive capabilities that include water resistance to 600 metres, a helium-escape valve, a 45.5 mm stainless steel case and black ceramic unidirectional rotating bezel. The dial is scratch-resistant and made of sapphire crystal. It retails for about $20,000.
