Steel on NATO strap
Note: watch no longer available
For the first time in Bond history, the actual watch worn by the world's favourite spy is released as a limited edition model.
Presented in a stainless steel case, this timepiece is unique in many ways, beginning with the black ceramic bi-directional bezel ring, built with a 12-hour scale in Liquidmetal™
The rhodium plated hands have a vintage (blue emission) coating of Super-Luminova, while other features include the "lollipop" central seconds hands, as well as the 5-stripe black and grey NATO strap - otherwise known as the James Bond NATO Strap. On the bracelet's strap holder, "007" has been engraved.
Of course, no Bond would be complete without the gadgetry. On the inside, this watch, limited to 7,007 models, is driven by the highly innovative OMEGA Master Co-Axial calibre 8400, a revolutionary movement that is resistant to magnetism up to 15,000 gauss.
The movement is unaffected by exposure to strong magnetic fields, even those greater than 1.5 tesla (15,000 gauss).
Bi-directional rotating bezel
A bezel which can be turned clockwise or anti-clockwise. Rotating bezels can be used to time events, measure elapsed times, or read second or third time zones.
Label given to a watch which has undergone precision tests and received a certificate from an official body (COSC).
(7,007) Limited edition
Self-locking crown, screwed into the tube of the case, used for highly water resistant divers' watches.

Stainless steel is certainly the most conventional of watchmaking materials for outer craftsmanship, and offers beauty, strength and affordability. OMEGA uses 316L stainless steel. Known for its corrosion-resistance and high lustre after polishing, this material is often the ideal choice for watches in both daily-use and high-stress situations such as diving and adventure.

Since 2010, OMEGA has bonded its ceramics with an alloy called LiquidmetalTM, which offers new decoration possibilities in a metal grey colour with superior scratch-resistance and enduring stability. Composed of titanium, zirconium and copper, this amorphous alloy is three times as hard as stainless steel. When bonded with ceramic parts, LiquidmetalTM can be offered in contrasting finishes (brushed or polished), thanks to the difference in hardness between the two materials.

To really appreciate the finer details of a timepiece, OMEGA uses synthetic sapphire crystal with a highly scratch-resistant and anti-reflective treatment. Before the machining and finishing processes take place, the sapphire crystals are produced under the Verneuil process, also called flame fusion. It involves the melting of the raw substance using oxyhydrogen flame and the crystallisation of the melted droplets to form a cylinder. Graded 9 on the Mohs-hardness scale (graded 1-10), the resulting sapphire crystals are virtually scratch-proof and very hard, ensuring an unhindered vision at all times.
Self-winding movement with Co-Axial escapement. Resistant to magnetic fields greater than 15,000 gauss. Free sprung-balance with silicon balance spring, two barrels mounted in series, automatic winding in both directions. Bridges and the oscillating weight are decorated with exclusive Geneva waves in arabesque.
