This year, the latest James Bond film â€œSpectreâ€ debuts, Daniel Craigâ€™s 007 will once again battle villains wearing an Omega Seamaster. Starting in 2006, with the beginning of the Daniel Craig era, there have been four Bond years for Omega watches. Every year, Omega has made two limited-edition James Bond watches.
The Daniel Craig Era
In Casino Royale (2006), Bond wears two Omega watches. In the first half of the movie, Bond wears Omega Planet Ocean Big Size 2900.50.91 (Replica Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Big Size James Bond 2900.50.91) which with 45mm case with black dial, black bezel, and a black rubber strap. In the second half of the film,he wears Omega Seamaster 300M Co-Axial 2220.80.00 (Replica Omega Seamaster 300M Diver James Bond 2220.80.00) with 41mm stainless steel blue face, blue bezel on a stainless steel bracelet.
The Omega Seamaster 300M James Bond 2226.80.00 (Replica Omega Seamaster 300M Chronometer James Bond 2226.80.00) without referencing a specific film for 2006. This watch was a cosmetically modified version of the 2220.80.00 worn in the film. The dial featured a pattern that evoked the gun barrel sequence at the beginning of every James Bond film, The counterweight of the second hand featured the â€œ007â€ logo which was also on the case back instead of the normal Seamaster hippocampus. This watch, the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Casino Royale Limited Edition 2907.50.91 (Replica Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean James Bond Limited Edition 2907.50.91), was similar to the Planet Ocean Bond wears in the film, with the additional features of a â€œ007â€ logo on the counter weight of the second hand, and a special case back engraved with â€œCasino Royaleâ€ instead of the hippocampus.
In Quantum of Solace (2008). This time, itâ€™s the 42mm Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 2201.50.00 (Replica Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m James Bond 2201.50.00) on a stainless steel bracelet. This would be the last time Bond would wear a 2500 Calibre movement on screen.
As in 2006, 2008 brought two limited edition James Bond watches. The first one was the Omega Seamaster 300M James Bond Quantom of Solace Limited Edition 188.8.131.52.01.001 (Replica Omega Seamaster 300M James Bond Quantom of Solace 184.108.40.206.01.001). This watch is the only watch not featuring a James Bond related dial pattern. Instead, it featured what was at the time a unique black lacquer dial that was a first for an Omega Seamaster. The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Quantum of Solace 220.127.116.11.01.001 (Replica Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Quantum of Solace 18.104.22.168.01.001) was in the larger case size of 45mm. Its signature characteristic was a dial pattern that looked like the gun grip of a Walther PPK.
In Skyfall (2012), James Bond wear two watches in the film. In the first half of the movie he wears the 42mm Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M 22.214.171.124.001 (Replica Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M 126.96.36.199.01.001). In the second half, he wears his first Omega that doesnâ€™t feature a rotating bezel, a 38.5mm Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M 188.8.131.52.03.001 (Replica Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M 184.108.40.206.03.001).
Like the two previous Bond movies, Omega launched a 300M Seamaster and a Planet Ocean. The 300M Seamaster celebrating James Bond came in both 36mm and 41mm and was called the Omega Seamaster 300M James Bond 007 50th Anniversary Bond Watch (Replica Omega Seamaster 300M James Bond 007 50th Anniversary 220.127.116.11.01.005). It featured a bullet on the case back and a â€œ007â€ pattern on the dial. The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M Skyfall watch (Replica Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M Skyfall 18.104.22.168.01.001) was a variant of the 8500 Planet Ocean worn in the film. It featured a â€œ007â€ marker at seven oâ€™clock and a dial pattern that resembled the grill of a 60s Aston Martin.
In Spectre (2015), Bond will wear a new version of the 300 Master Co-Axial that will also be sold as a 7007 pieces limited edition. This watch is variant of the Omega 300 which takes design cues from Omegaâ€™s first professional grade dive watch in 1957. This will be Bondâ€™s first watch worn on screen that can resist magnetism of 15,000 Gauss. The Omega Seamaster 300 Spectre Watch will distinguish itself from the Omega 300 Seamaster models by featuring a 5-stripe black and gray Omega NATO strap, and a bezel that features a bi-directional 12-hour scale. Furthermore, it will feature an Omega logo in place of the Arabic 12-hour indice, and a â€œlollipopâ€ second hand with a circular tip instead of the diamond-pointed end of the original.
Omega Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra James Bond Limited Edition watch celebrating James Bond, but not tied to the latest film is the first limited edition Aqua Terra in the series. Like the watch worn in Skyfall, it features a blue dial, but this time the watch is 41.5mm instead of 38.5mm. The major design hallmark of the Bond Aqua Terra is that the Bond family coat of arms forms the background of the dial in a similar way that the â€œ007â€ logo formed the dial in the 50th Anniversary piece. This coat of arms is also lumed near the tip of the second hand.
