News of the latest James Bond tribute watch was kept top secret ahead of its official announcement. But our very own David Bredan infiltrated Omega’s boat-party launch event (drysuit over tuxedo, of course) to bring these hands on pictures of the new limited-edition Omega Seamaster Diver 300M”Commander’s Watch” and save the world. James Bond jokes aside, David did combine Omega seamaster diver 300m co-axial 36.25 mm replica watches for the unveiling event on the River Thames in London, and here is the vibrant new watch dedicated to the fictitious secret agent. From the colours of the UK’s Royal Navy, the”Commander’s Watch” isn’t for a single specific film, but instead observes the cult of Bond and commemorates several film glimpse simultaneously.
Instead, a person noticed that 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of You Only Live Twice (1967), the 40th anniversary of The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), and the 20th anniversary of Tomorrow Never Dies (1997). Missed opportunity to get a”trilogy” with a watch for every movie? Having a recent list of all 26 James Bond films since the earliest in 1962, though, we might potentially expect something similar every few years. In fact, there’ll be no fewer than four Bond film anniversaries to observe in 2019… so save a spot on your watch box to get that limited edition.
From 1997, Omega was the Bond watch for the next time in Tomorrow Never Dies after the relationship began with GoldenEye in 1995. It was a Seiko at The Spy Who Loved Me and the Bond watch in You Only Live Twice has not been positively identified, based on my internet research. Starting with GoldenEye and for a number of films, the spy often wore a blue Omega seamaster diver 300m chronometer men’s clone watch Seamaster Diver 300M. Therefore, while 007 tribute and brace watches have come in other lines, like the (confusingly named, but different from the 300M) Seamaster 300 (Spectre variant hands-on here), Aqua Terra, along with Earth Sea (as here for Skyfall), the Seamaster Diver 300M is fitting and relevant to your Omega and 007 relationship.
But the triple anniversary doesn’t fully clarify the opinion or its red-white-and-blue color motif. If you are like me and never completely caught up on every picture and the complex 007 world, it might be getting a bit arcane for you too. For the launch event, Omega CEO Raynald Aeschlimann explained that Omega seamaster 300m diver chronometer titanium replica watches had been”fascinated” by Bond’s”connection to the Royal Navy, which will be a company that Omega also has history with, and also we wanted to pay tribute to his own rank as Commander.” In each of the three movies that the Commander’s Watch pays tribute to, Bond is seemingly seen sporting his official military uniform sooner or later. Good enough for me.
With a 41mm steel case (water-resistant to 300m, of course), these are mostly cosmetic changes to the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M that is actually Omega’s entry-level mechanical men’s watch. Since Bond helped create the NATO strap trendy, this model suitably comes on a five-stripe blue, red, and grey polyamide NATO strap, but it also includes all the five-link steel bracelet that’s very much part of this Seamaster 300M’s character. The clasp includes the Omega seamaster 300m diver magazine clone branding along with all the 007 logo as well as the”TM Danjaq” trademark.
As a colorful Bond watch with a few overt branding, this sounds more on the 007 memorabilia facet compared to stylish spy apparent flavor for somber tool watches. In addition to the steel version and an even more limited yellow gold one, there will likewise be a one-off white gold model that will be sold through an online auction later in the year together with reference numbers #007 of every one of the other models. Doing the auction on the internet is a first for Omega seamaster 300m diver replica watch review and pretty much any significant luxury watch company but follows an (slowly) increasing move toward online revenue, such as the Speedmaster Speedy Tuesday watch that quickly sold out online before in 2017.
