Diver 300 M
OMEGA has released the James Bond 007 50th Anniversary Collector’s Piece Seamaster Co-Axial 300M in two sizes to commemorate the 50th anniversary of one of the most successful and storied movie franchises of all time.
To celebrate fifty years of James Bond in the motion pictures, OMEGA released a special update of the incredibly popular Seamaster Diver 300M James Bond watch famously 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.
The watch cases are made of stainless steel and feature ceramic bezel rings with diving scales in matt chromium nitride except for the red "50", a subtle reminder of Bond’s film legacy. Each watch is presented on a classic brushed and polished 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 chronometer movement fitted with the revolutionary Co-Axial escapement. Its screw-in case back is stamped with a gun-barrel design. The "bullet" decoration on the rotor can be viewed through a central sapphire crystal.
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 – another tribute to 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. The James Bond 007 50th Anniversary Collector's Piece will prove irresistible to fans of 007 and to anyone interested in elegant, distinctive timepieces.
