To celebrate fifty years of James Bond films, Omega is releasing a special update of the popular Seamaster Diver 300m James Bond watch which has been worn by 007 in every adventure since GoldenEye. The James Bond 007 50th Anniversary Collector’s Piece has been created in two sizes, 41 mm and 36.25 mm. Find wallpaper images inside.
The lacquered black dial features a 007 monogram. The 41 mm version has 11 applied indexes; the 36.35 mm watch has ten with a diamond index at the 7 o’clock position. The indexes are coated with white Super-LumiNova with a blue emission, for easy reading in all light conditions.
The cases are stainless steel and with unidirectional ceramic bezel with diving scales in matte chromium nitride. The red number “50″ signifies the special 007 anniversary. A helium escape valve allows helium atoms to escape during decompression, particularly necessary for professional divers operating from diving bells. As its name suggests, the watch is water resistant up to 300 meters.
Each version of the watch is presented on a classic brushed and polished Omega-patented screw-and-pin stainless steel bracelet.
Both versions feature Omega’s caliber 2507 self-winding movement with co-axial escapement.
The watch is a certified chronometer. Its screw-in case back is stamped with a gun-barrel design. A “bullet” decoration on the rotor can be viewed through the sapphire crystal display back.
The 41 mm version is being produced in a limited edition of 11,007 pieces and the 36.25 mm version in a limited edition of 3,007 pieces.
Later this year, EON Productions will release Skyfall, the 23rd film in the 007 franchise, with Daniel Craig in the role of James Bond.
