Introducing the new Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition!

Omega say that this time round they worked closer than ever on the development of the Bond watch with Daniel Craig and Eon Productions.

DC’s personal experience as 007 has also heavily influenced the final design the watch which has been built with military needs in mind!

Omega stayed in close contact with the DC throughout the design process, drawing on his special James Bond knowledge to understand the sort of features the watch might need.

Apparently DC’s influence and advice played a big role in the end result. He specifically asked for something lightweight and he wanted the watch to have some old school vintage touches.

The 42mm diver has been constructed from Grade 2 Titanium, which has been used for the case as well as the Titanium mesh bracelet with its innovative adjustable buckle.

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 case-back is 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 case-back that keeps all of the engravings in correct alignment.

Power comes from an Omega Co-Axial Master Chronometer Caliber 8806. It not only boasts the industry’s highest standards of precision with chronometric performance but also has magnetic resistance.

The watch will be released in Omega Boutiques from February. It will be available on the its Titanium mesh bracelet, or on a striped NATO strap in dark brown, grey and beige with 007 engraved on the loop.

The watches are delivered in an exclusive brown fabric pouch.

Thoughts? For me there is a certain amount of nostalgia attached to the design which dates back to the 90s which really speaks to me but so do the vintage touches and indeed all the military markings – plus it’s Titanium!
