Omega Launches Special Edition James Bond Timepiece

By Paul Joseph

To celebrate fifty years of James Bond films, luxury Swiss watch-maker Omega has created a special edition version of its ultra-popular Seamaster Diver 300m James Bond timepiece.

Worn by 007 in every Bond film since “Goldeneye”, the Seamaster Diver 300m has been recreated as a special edition featuring a stainless steel case, ceramic bezel rings with diving scales in matt chromium nitride, and the number "50" in red.

Each version of the watch is presented on a classic brushed and polished Omega-patented screw-and-pin stainless steel bracelet, whilst the lacquered black dial features a 007 monogram.

The watch also comes with Omega’s calibre 2507 self-winding movement fitted with the innovative Co-Axial escapement.

Two sizes of the special edition Seamaster have been made: one 41mm, limited to 11,007 pieces, and one 36.25 mm version, limited to 3,007 pieces.

The 23rd film in the James Bond franchise, called "Skyfall" will be released in 2012.
