Omega Seamaster Diver 300m
Since the James Bond film ‘GoldenEye’, the world’s most famous Secret Service agent has worn an Omega Seamaster. The latest version of the Seamaster Diver 300m is about to be released, and it’s substantially different from its predecessors. A polished, lacquered black dial is a backdrop for black-gold-plated hour markers, filled with shining white Super-LumiNova. The luminous hour and minute hands are also plated with black gold.
The seconds hand sports a red tip and a red ‘007’ logo as a counterweight, rotating in stark contrast to the black dial behind. Equipped with Omega’s calibre 2500 self-winding movement and ‘Co-Axial Escapement’, reducing friction and offering better long-term accuracy, the chronograph has a power reserve of 48 hours.
Only 10,007 pieces of the latest Seamaster will be produced, supplied in a presentation case almost as striking as the watch itself: reminiscent of a tuxedo, says Omega, an item of sartorial elegance ‘as synonymous to Bond as the Omega Seamaster Diver 300m watches he’s been wearing for more than a decade’.
