Omega has now released a James Bond limited edition version of the high-end Omega Seamaster 300m Co-Axial replica watch, which will be released at the same time as the film. Omega has released another limited edition Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra replica Watch, to be released alongside Spectre in November.
In addition to the Seamaster Aqua Terra that was announced earlier in the year.
The first thing to note is that there are no “007” additions to the watch’s dial at all. This is not a Bond watch in the vein of all other Bond watches; this is a watch that James Bond will be wearing, rather than a commemorative piece – as emphasised by the recently released pictures of Daniel Craig touring the Omega factory wearing this mens Omega Seamaster 300m copy watch.
They are the kind of discreet changes that you’d have to be an actual spy to notice!
The last major difference – and something that will get the keenest James Bond collectors going – is the use of a black and grey NATO strap. Interestingly it differs from the original textile strap worn by Sean Connery in Goldfinger (with his Rolex Submariner!) – that pattern was navy blue, red and olive green, rather than black and grey, although at a distance the two look very similar.
Bond Factor: How obviously “Bond” is it? Not very at all. But on the other hand, it is almost certainly going to be the actual watch worn by Bond for the majority of the movie, so you don’t get more Bond than that.
The only dial changes to the watch are that the 12 o’clock hour index has been replaced with a larger “Omega Seamaster” logo, the second hand has been given a “lollipop” circle at its tip rather than the standard arrow, and the bezel is now a bidirectional rotating bezel with numerals from 0-11, giving the Swiss-made Omega copy watch a second time zone function of sorts.
