Luxury brand Omega has released new collector versions of the popular Seamaster Diver 300M James Bond watch to celebrate fifty years of James Bond films.
The Seamaster has been worn by James Bond in almost every film since the Golden Eye. When Pierce Brosnan took over the role of James Bond in 1995, he started wearing the Omega Seamaster Quartz Professional.
Brosnan was seen wearing the Omega time piece is all Bond films since then.
The 007 50th Anniversary Collector's Piece has been created in two sizes, 41 mm and 36.25 mm for the 50th anniversary.
Each of the versions is presented on a brushed Omega-patented stainless steel bracelet.
The special edition timepiece arrives just in time for this year's hotly anticipated release of the 23rd film in the franchise, "Skyfall", which will see Daniel Craig in the role of the iconic secret service agent. Craig was earlier seen wearing the Seamaster Planet Ocean during the first part of Casino Royale, and the Seamaster Professional 300M in the latter part.
The cases of the new limited-edition watches are made of stainless steel while the ceramic bezel rings feature the number 50 in red as a reminder that the watch is a celebration of the Bond anniversary.
According to Watchalyzer, although the watches are released as Limited Editions, one can argue about their exclusivities, since there are even 11007 produced pieces of 41 mm model, while a smaller version with a 36.25mm case comes in the edition of 3007 pieces.
Perhaps, one of the most controversial parts of the new watch is the 007 monogram pattern on a lacquered black dial. This pattern is similar to the one of a 2002 Limited Edition watch, but it is much more striking now.
However, the Seamaster has certain interesting features and additions as well including its unique water-resistance property of up to 300 meter (660 ft). One of the features that provide this is a helium escape valve that allows gas to escape during decompression.
