Omega Seamaster has a long history with James Bond, beginning with the Pierce Brosnan era in Goldeneye (1995). Back then, it was the film’s costume designer Lindy Hemming who first introduced the brand as the official James Bond watch.
“I was convinced that Commander Bond, a naval man, a diver and a discreet gentleman of the world would wear the [Omega] Seamaster with the blue dial,” she quoted.
This year, Omega celebrates its 20-year-plus partnership with the Bond franchise by unveiling a limited-edition Omega Seamaster Diver 300m “Commander’s Watch”. Inspired by Bond‘s rank and regalia from Sean Connery‘s You Only Live Twice, Roger Moore‘s The Spy Who Loved Me and Pierce Brosnan‘s Tomorrow Never Dies, the new timepiece sports a nautical-themed design that pays tribute to Royal Navy. The watch also features a combination of red and blue bezel alongside a crisp white ceramic dial. Other features include a counterweight 007 gun logo on the second hands, as well as a five-stripe NATO bracelet strap in blue, red & grey and a polished buckle.
The Omega Seamaster Diver 300m “Commander’s Watch” is limited only to 7,007 pieces and comes in a special box inspired by the military medal case.
