Celebrating 20 years as the official timepiece of the world’s greatest spy, Omega has released two striking new limited-edition models to coincide with the launch of the latest Bond film, SPECTRE.

The Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M James Bond Limited Edition takes its inspiration from the Bond family coat of arms, a symbol that is repeatedly interlocked to create a dynamic pattern on the watch’s blue dial. The coat of arms is also found near the tip of the yellow central seconds hand.

Among the most striking elements of this 41.5 mm stainless steel timepiece is the oscillating weight of the movement, visible through the sapphire crystal caseback. This component has been cut and shaped to resemble a gun barrel.

Fittingly the piece is powered by the completely new Omega Master Co-Axial calibre 8507, and is resistant to magnetic fields greater than 15,007 gauss. The timepiece is presented on a stainless steel bracelet and is limited to 15,007 pieces.

In addition, Omega has created another Bond-esque take on its iconic Seamaster. Submerged in tradition, the Seamaster has been James Bond’s watch since Goldeneye in 1995. With his naval history and classic style, it is perfectly suited to his iconic character. Only 7,007 of the new Seamaster 300 “SPECTRE” Limited Edition will be released, each presented with a stainless steel case and black dial.

The bi-directional rotating diving bezel is also black, this time made from polished ceramic. Combined with a LiquidMetal 12 hour scale, time can be kept with any country in the world. Ideal, some might say, for a person on the move.

Other unique features include the “lollipop” central seconds hands, as well as the 5-stripe black and grey NATO strap – otherwise known as the James Bond NATO Strap. On the bracelet’s strap holder, “007” has been engraved.

Of course, no Bond would be complete without the gadgetry. On the inside, this watch is driven by the highly innovative OMEGA Master Co-Axial calibre 8400, a revolutionary movement in its own right.
