Watch of the week: Omega Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition

Introducing James Bond’s latest timepiece; the co-axial master chronometer that the superspy will buckle up in the upcoming No Time To Die

In 1995’s GoldenEye, a dapper looking Pierce Brosnan used his laser-equipped Omega Seamaster to narrowly escape a train car just moments before it exploded. The Swiss watchmaker’s timepieces have been getting 007 out of some serious scrapes ever since, and yesterday we learnt what the agent’s latest wrist-mounted gadget looks like.

The good news? While we may have to wait a few more impatient months to wrap our eyes around No Time To Die, Bond’s newest watch — the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition — is available to buy already. Well, as long as you have a spare $9,200 languishing in the deep pockets of your tuxedo…

Excitingly, Daniel Craig is the first Bond to collaborate directly with Omega on his character’s watch, and this latest resulting design is available with either a NATO strap or mesh bracelet (the latter can be seen worn by Craig in the newly released trailer).

This 42mm Seamaster, in strong-yet-lightweight Grade 2 Titanium (it’s first time a 007 watch has been crafted from the precious metal), sports a brown tropical aluminium bezel ring and dial. Engraved on its caseback is a series of numbers, which follow the exact format for genuine military-issue watches. Included is the number 62 — sure to please serious Bond fanatics, as it knowingly refers to the year in which the very first James Bond film, Dr. No, was made.

The 007 Edition Diver is powered by Omega’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer 8806, which has achieved the industry’s highest standards of precision, chronometric performance — and, of course, magnetic resistance. And, as Bond’s previous Omegas have harboured hidden abilities of bomb-disarmament and laser vision, we can’t wait to see what tricks the new Seamaster slips up Bond’s sleeve…
