Spectre Style: Introducing James Bond's New Watch

Watchmaker announces new limited edition Seamaster to coincide with Spectre

Over the years, James Bond has taken ownership of some seriously cool toys. There was that invisible car in Die Another Day, a seriously natty briefcase in From Russia with Love, and who could forget the fake-seagull-topped scuba gear?

The watches, though, are perhaps where Q Branch has excelled the most. There have been laser beams, circular saws and remote controlled bombs. But that’s all been phased out in the past few films, and our man’s been left with nothing more than a beautiful, gimmick-free Omega Seamaster.

As you may know, since 1995, with each new film comes a new watch. For Spectre however, Omega has created two. The first is the Seamaster Aqua Terra 150m. For the most part, it’s exactly the same as the normal Aqua Terra, but this model features a blue dial-design inspired by the Bond family crest. What’s more, the normal anti-magnetic Gauss resistance has been taken from 15,000+ to 15,007, which is about cheesy as this new Bond watch gets.

The second is different, but equally as cool. The Seamaster 300 ‘Spectre’ Special Edition, limited to 7007 pieces, is a co-axial with ‘NATO’ fabric strap, ‘lollipop’ hands and rotating ceramic bezel. Again, the (subtle) link to bond comes on the bracelet strap holder, where the 007-gun logo has been engraved. It’s the kind of thing you’d take into the field of duty, but it’ll look good with a suit too.   

With a new bond film and two new Omegas to gawp at, it looks like Autumn won’t be so miserable after all. Read the exclusive Esquire interview with Daniel Craig, here.
