Omega’s ramping up in the lead up to the 2020 Bond film, No Time to Die with a second Seamaster Diver 300M announcement that actually involves two watches.
Released as the James Bond Limited Edition Set, the two watches include, firstly a 42mm stain-less steel piece on a black rubber strap and a second 18K yellow gold 42mm piece, again on a black rubber strap with an 18K yellow gold buckle.
The dials on both watches are spiral-brushed black ceramic with a black PVD coating bearing the ever so familiar gun-barrel logo of the 007 franchise, laser etched on the surface.
A closer look at the dial lets us know that the hour marker at 12 o’clock is shaped in the form of the Bond family coat-of-arms. A closer look yet, and in the dark, will reveal that the 10th hour marker hides the number 50, which is meant to mark the 50 years it’s been since the release of the 1969 Bond film: On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.
Coming back to the case, both watches will have a plate engraved with each Limited Edition. The steel version with a 18K yellow gold plate and the 18K gold watch with a 18K white gold plate.
The bezel on the steel watch is in black ceramic with a white enamel diving scale, while the one on the gold variation is in black ceramic but with the diving scale in Ceragold™.
Both timepieces are powered by the Master Chronometer Calibre 8806/8807.
Now, the reason why we keep speaking about the two watches in tandem is because they form part of the James Bond Limited Edition Set, i.e. the watches come in a set inside a specially assembled Globe-TrotterTM suitcase, with additional NATO straps and a steel bracelet. The complete set will be limited to just 257 pieces.
