Omega’s longstanding alliance with the most successful and longest running film franchise in history has itself become a form of natural selection. With each Bond, we’ve seen a new and improved masterpiece.
Beginning back in Brosnan’s 90’s days and culminating with the latest stunner to be revealed in Spectre, Omega have held nothing back in their brand new limited edition Seamaster 300 Omega Master Co-Axial 41 mm.
Omega and Bond have stood side by side the past two decades in a lucrative marketing deal that has proven extremely effective for both brands. This particular Seamaster 300 is a revival of a 1957 dive classic and for the first time in the partnership’s history, Omega is releasing the watch as an official 007 edition.
Housed in a rigid steel case, encompassed by a black ceramic bi-directional bezel ring and enclosed in a domed, scratch resistant and anti-reflective sapphire crystal, this watch is as practical as is it striking. The face is a signature Seamaster design but for the first time ever, Omega’s principle timepiece has a 5-stripe black and grey ‘NATO’ strap instead of the classic silver which has dominated the Bond/Omega affair.
The gadgetry includes an innovative OMEGA Master Co-Axial calibre 8400 movement resistant to a magnetism of up to 15 000 gauss, and a maximum depth of 300 metres (30 bar).
To complement the exclusivity of this edition, there will of course only be 7007 watches made, all with a ‘007’ engraved on the strap holder and ‘Spectre’ on the case back. The tone and sleekness of this beautiful timepiece rightly reflect the dark, ominous vibes we’ve been getting from the trailers for Spectre, and it looks as if this killer watch will once again complement a killer film.
Starting price: $8500 AUD
Spectre is released November 6th.
