OMEGA SM 300 '007' 50th Anniversary Edition FirstLook

By TLex Here's a spy shot of the new OMEGA Seamaster 300 '007' 50th Anniversary Edition that celebrates 50 years of James Bond film making. The watch looks to be based on the NewGeneration of Seamaster 300 watches that are equipped with the latest Omega Cal. 2500 Chronometers and that come with lacquered dials and ceramic bezel inlays.

Special features of the watch include a '007' pattern on the dial, a red '50' minute marker on the divers bezel (in connection with the anniversary) and a custom bullet rotor, which can be viewed through the display window of the caseback with signature James Bond spiraling gun barrel effect taken from the opening sequence of the Bond films. As we can see from the caseback the watch is a (not so) Limited Edition of 11'007 pieces.

Not a particularly attractive version of the new SM 300 I have to say; the dial pattern is gaudy and the rotor a little tacky, but to many it will be quite a  collectible item  . . .
