After originally being scheduled for April 2020, the theatrical debut of James Bond ‘No Time To Die’ is now set for November 20, 2020.
Daniel Craig will reprise his role as British secret agent 007 for the fifth and final time in ‘No Time To Die’, and he will, of course, be wearing an Omega on his wrist throughout the movie.
This year represents the 50th Anniversary since the original James Bond movie ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’ (1969) was released. The movie also marks 25 years of Omega being the official watch of James Bond, which started with ‘GoldenEye’ (1995).
Sophisticated style and innovation have always been essential parts of the James Bond story. And to uphold that honor, Swiss watchmaker Omega is now coming out with a brand new Seamaster Diver 300M James Bond Numbered Edition: a watch that offers a lot of details for 007 fans.
Introducing the 2020 Seamaster Diver 300M James Bond Platinum Gold Numbered Edition. Presented in the same size 42 mm diameter Seamaster 300M case as the previously announced individual James Bond Limited Edition ($6,500) and the two-piece boxed set ($42,100) – except this one is in a solid ‘platinum-gold’ alloy that was formulated to be more durable and maintain its color better than typical 950 platinum.
Like the recently announced Seamaster 007 timepieces, this watch has a plate affixed to the side of the case and engraved with the edition number (lucky you: there is no limit in production!).
For an exceptional look, the 42 mm case is made of platinum gold, with a platinum gold plate on the side, engraved with a unique number. The same material is also used for the polished-brushed buckle of the black leather strap of the watch. More unique details characterize the watch, including a black ceramic bezel with an embossed platinum diving scale.
While the spiraling gun-barrel logo is anything but discreet, the ‘007’ gun logo printed in white enamel at 7 o’clock on the minute track is subtle. Even more subtle is the hidden number ’50’ in the luminous material of the 10 o’clock index – which is a reference to the 50th Anniversary of On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.
A black enamel dial features the signature Bond spiraling gun-barrel design in 18K white gold and is accentuated with 18K white gold applied indices, hands. As part of the Omega James Bond collection launched last year, this watch also includes a hidden number 50 in Super-LumiNova of the 10 o’clock index. A reference to the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Servive’ (1969). Elsewhere on the dial you will find a 007 logo at the 7, as well as the James Bond family coat-of-of arms at 12 o’clock in white gold.
The Omega Seamaster Diver 300M James Bond Numbered Edition Platinum Gold comes in its own Globe-Trotter™ suitcase, bound by NATO-inspired straps, and inside is an additional black rubber strap which can be swapped out with a black alligator leather strap.
The release date has not yet been announced. However, there is a price tag on the watch of €47,175. The new Omega Seamaster James Bond editie is available at Omega boutiques and selected stores worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Omega.
