The James Bond 007 50th Anniversary Collector's Piece Seamaster Co-Axial 300M in two sizes

OMEGA has released two Co-Axial versions of the storied Seamaster Diver 300M to commemorate the 50th anniversary of one of the most successful movie franchises of all time.

It's hard to believe that nearly fifty years have passed since the release of Dr. No, starring Sean Connery as Her Majesty's Secret Service agent 007. With its world premiere on 23 October, SKYFALL marks the 23rd film in the fabled franchise, with Daniel Craig in the role of James Bond.
 
To celebrate fifty years of James Bond in the motion pictures, OMEGA is releasing a special update of the incredibly popular Seamaster Diver 300M James Bond watch which was worn by 007 in GOLDENEYE and the four following films.

The James Bond 007 50th Anniversary Collector's Piece has been created in two sizes, 41 mm and 36.25 mm.

There are some features that distinguish these watches: their cases are made of stainless steel and they feature ceramic bezel rings with diving scales in matt chromium nitride except for the number "50" which is in red, as a reminder that the watch is celebrating a very special anniversary. Each version of the watch is presented on a classic brushed and polished OMEGA-patented screw-and-pin stainless steel bracelet.

“Perhaps the most
eye-catching feature is the 'bullet' decoration on the rotor...”

The James Bond 007 50th Anniversary Collector's Piece is aesthetically dazzling. Both versions feature OMEGA's calibre 2507 self-winding movement fitted with the revolutionary Co-Axial escapement, the component that has driven a revolution in mechanical watchmaking since it was launched in 1999. The watch is a certified chronometer. Its screw-in case back is stamped with a gun-barrel design. There is a "bullet" decoration on the rotor that can be viewed through a central sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both sides.

The watch also has a unidirectional rotating bezel. 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 30 bar (300 metres / 1000 feet). The 41 mm version was produced in an edition limited to 11,007 pieces; the smaller watch was created in a limited edition of 3,007 pieces.

The lacquered black dial features a 007 monogram. The 41 mm version has 11 applied indexes; the 36.25 mm watch has ten with a diamond index at the 7 o'clock position - a reminder that this watch was created to honour the film history of agent 007. The indexes are coated with white Super-LumiNova with a blue emission, allowing ease of reading in all light conditions. There is a date window at 3 o'clock.
 
While some of the advanced features will appeal particularly to divers, the James Bond 007 50th Anniversary Collector's Piece will prove irresistible to fans of 007 and to anyone interested in elegant, distinctive timepieces.
