The James Bond 007 50th Anniversary Collector's Piece

Classic Seamaster Co-Axial 300 M


Commemorating 50 years of James Bond in films


To celebrate fifty years of James Bond films, OMEGA is releasing a special update of the incredibly popular Seamaster Diver 300m James Bond watch which has been worn by 007 in every adventure since GoldenEye. The James Bond 007 50th Anniversary Collector's Piece has been created in two sizes, 41 mm and 36.25 mm.

The cases of the watches are made of stainless steel and they feature ceramic bezel rings with diving scales in matt chromium nitride with the number "50" 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.

The lacquered black dial features a 007 monogram. The 41 mm version has 11 applied indexes; the 36.35 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.

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 fixed on the rotor that can be viewed through a central sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating inside. 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 300 metres.

The 41 mm version is being produced in a limited edition of 11,007 pieces and the 36.25 mm version in a limited edition of 3,007 pieces.

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.

In 2012, EON Productions will release Skyfall, the 23rd film in the franchise, with Daniel Craig in the role of James Bond.

Love the bezel, not liking the dial. At least they didn't do the whole "007" second hand tail again.

dont like it; who came up with such a silly dial design? :cursing: I rather see the 007 wallpaper logo as a backdrop on a computer screen (but other than mine!)

I had high hopes for the 50th, and they are now quickly shattered. 11,000 (like everyone says) is not limited, and will certainly be on shelves for quite some time, and readily availalbe. The dial? Really? Looks like a screen saver with a tilted angle. I am not sure what I was expecting from Omega, just know it was not that. I did like the gun barrel they had quite some time ago; but, never got used to the 007 second hand.

I think it's funny that it's the James bond 50th anniversary when he has only been wearing omega since the 90s lol

I liked it the first time I saw it. Then I started reading all the negative comments and remembered all the "Bond LE" haters! Makes me laugh! I hope to see one in real life. Cheers!

Why is so small? Would it be nice in 45MM?
Well, regular humans would like to wear it so they offered two reasonable sizes. When Omega does a Sasquatch limited edition (Yeti for the Asian market) or maybe a tribute to Andrès the Giant I'm sure it will be at least 45 mm.

Thanks Dennis,

Good info here on the New Bond SM.

I like the Omega Sea Master's, just they were and are alittle over priced for my budget. Maybe things will change soon, as I'm looking at one of the 2254.50 models.

Cheers & Sky Fall will be out very soon!
Jim
