James Bond’s New Timepiece: Omega Seamaster 300M “Commander’s Watch”


Since 1995, when Pierce Brosnan wore a Seamaster in Goldeneye, Omega has been the watch brand of choice for James Bond. After launching a special edition for the most recent Bond film, Spectre, two years ago, Omega has now given the world’s most famous secret agent a new wrist companion: the Omega Seamaster 300M “Commander’s Watch” Limited Edition.

As serious James Bond fans are aware, before Agent 007 was a secret agent he was a commander of the British Royal Navy. The new watch is dedicated to his rank and therefore has been dubbed the “Commander’s Watch.”  Fittingly, it bears the colors of Great Britain and its navy: the white ceramic dial features blue, skeletonized hour and minute hands and a red second hand, which it enhanced with a stylized “007” logo. The number 7 in the date window is also colored red, while all other numbers are colored blue. Red and blue are also used as the colors in the rotating bezel. One can choose to wear the watch with the matching NATO strap or with a metal bracelet.

The steel case measures 41 mm and holds the Omega Caliber 2507, which powers the watch. This self-winding movement — with its specially designed rotor featuring the 007 logo and three gold stripes — can be viewed through the sapphire caseback. According to Omega, the three gold stripes are inspired by the Commander’s naval insignia.

  1. Until you see it in the flesh please don’t judge it. I’m an omega fan but wasn’t impressed with this watch until I saw it in the jewellers. It is stunning and just like another commentator bought it on the spot. Beautifully judged design and the NATO strap really suits it. I really believe it will be a future classic.

    Wow. Love the dial and bezel. Uber sporty and a standout with that white dial and touch of red on the bezel.

    Very appealing timepiece however, the price point for the watch containing 2507 movement is tad high.

    The other one Daniel Craig wore was way cooler. Too tame appeal for Bond.

    It’s horrible, looks like an Invicta. Hate deck-chair straps, looks like Southend beach, accessorise with a knotted hankerchief… don’t mess with the Seamaster. Swatch, will you please leave an iconic brand alone…

    Went to the Omega boutique in Old Bond St this morning to pick up a watch from service… saw this new watch and bought it on the spot. Not because it is a 007 but because it looks great with the NATO band for summer and has the stainless steel band as well…

    This is the ugliest James Bond watch I have ever seen.
    I will stick to my Seamaster 300M 50th anniversary mid-size.
    Thank you.

      My opinion, just cannot compare to the Rolex Submariner. Rolex will always the Bond watch.
