Omega: Seamaster Diver 300M “Commander’s Watch”14 July 2017
2017 marks three noteworthy anniversaries for the legendary saga James Bond “007”: the 50th anniversary of “You Only Live Twice”; the 40th anniversary of “The Spy Who Loved Me”; and the 20th anniversary of “Tomorrow Never Dies.” In each of these films, James Bond can be seen wearing his official military uniform.
To celebrate these anniversaries, OMEGA created a unique watch design inspired by the red, white and blue colours of the Royal Navy as well as the Commander’s insignia itself.
During an special event in London, Raynald Aeschlimann “OMEGA President and CEO” with Michael G. Wilson “Bond film Producer” unveiled the new Seamaster Diver 300M “Commander’s Watch” Limited Edition.
Cased in stainless steel, the “Commander’s Watch” follows the Royal Navy’s ensign colours with a polished white ceramic dial, facetted blue skeleton hour-minute hands and a varnished red seconds hand with a “007” gun logo counterweight. The see-through caseback reveals a rotor with the Royal Navy’s Commander rank insignia. The watch is presented on a 5-stripe blue, red & grey polyamide NATO Strap, with an additional metal bracelet, and is powered by the exclusive OMEGA Calibre 2507. The stainless steel version is limited to 7,007 pieces. Additionally, the Commander’s Watch also comes in an 18K yellow gold model, limited to just seven pieces.
