OMEGA – SEAMASTER DIVER 300M “COMMANDER’S WATCH”
FOR YOUR EYES ONLY
You can’t go without 007. So when James Bond isn’t doing his thing on the big screen, Omega delves into his past to bring us a limited series.
Ian Fleming’s hero rose to the rank of Commander in the Royal Navy and although his official uniform is rarely worn, Omega has adorned his wrist since 1995. Whilst we wait for the famous spy’s new cinematic adventure in 2019, the brand has brought out a limited edition (7007 available) Seamaster Diver 300M “Commander’s Watch”. Omega gives us the chance to dive into James Bond’s military past with this model in the Royal Navy’s signature red and white. The 41mm steel case is water-resistant to depths of 300m with a blue ceramic bezel whose red rubber coating covers the first 15 minutes on the diving scale. Twelve blue markers and skeleton hands burst from the polished white ceramic dial. A counterweight bearing the 007 logo elongates the red central seconds hand. The date display also plays with colour as all the figures are blue except for the red 7.
The limited series comes with a military medal-style box to house the watch. It contains a second steel strap and a tool so you can easily swap the watch’s NATO strap adorned with five blue, red and grey stripes.
The Seamaster Diver 300M “Commander’s Watch” is fuelled by the Omega 2507 calibre. You can see the self-winding movement’s rotor decorated with the Navy commander stripes through the sapphire caseback.
