OMEGA Seamaster Diver 300M 007 EDITION

Introducing the new Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition!



Omega say that this time round they worked closer than ever on the development of the Bond watch with Daniel Craig and Eon Productions.



DC’s personal experience as 007 has also heavily influenced the final design the watch which has been built with military needs in mind!



Omega stayed in close contact with the DC throughout the design process, drawing on his special James Bond knowledge to understand the sort of features the watch might need.



Apparently DC’s influence and advice played a big role in the end result. He specifically asked for something lightweight and he wanted the watch to have some old school vintage touches.



The 42mm diver has been constructed from Grade 2 Titanium, which has been used for the case as well as the Titanium mesh bracelet with its innovative adjustable buckle.



To further decrease the weight, OMEGA has used tropical brown aluminum for the dial and bezel ring.



These elements have been given a classic look, thanks to the vintage Super-LumiNova, which fills the diving scale, blackened hands and indexes.



On the case-back is a series of numbers, which follow the format for genuine military-issue watches.

“0552” is the code-number specified for Navy personnel, with “923 7697” being the number for a divers’ watch.



The letter “A” is a code used to signify a watch with a screw-in crown, while “007” is James Bond’s iconic agent number. Finally, the number “62” is the year of the very first James Bond film.

The new watch is completed by a NAIAD LOCK case-back that keeps all of the engravings in correct alignment.



Power comes from an Omega Co-Axial Master Chronometer Caliber 8806. It not only boasts the industry’s highest standards of precision with chronometric performance but also has magnetic resistance.



The watch will be released in Omega Boutiques from February. It will be available on the its Titanium mesh bracelet, or on a striped NATO strap in dark brown, grey and beige with 007 engraved on the loop.

The watches are delivered in an exclusive brown fabric pouch.



Thoughts? For me there is a certain amount of nostalgia attached to the design which dates back to the 90s which really speaks to me but so do the vintage touches and indeed all the military markings – plus it’s Titanium!

OMEGA Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition UNVEILED

It’s finally happened; no, the Bond franchise hasn’t announced that the next JB will be Jane rather than James (this still might happen, though);

no, Omega has finally revealed the next on-screen model that James Bond will be wearing in the upcoming Bond 25, No Time To Die.



The film’s delay put the release of the watch back but it’s finally here, with Bond 25 to follow shortly in April 2020 – I literally cannot wait!

The WATCH as you can see looks fantastic but before we get to the nitty gritty, a little fluff courtesy of me for fans of these collaborations.



Omega has been milking the James Bond franchise; and quite rightly so – the two names; James Bond & Omega seem such a good fit but I can’t help wondering – what if Rolex – I digress.

Also recently released was the OHMSS & OHMSS Boxset which I discussed a couple of weeks ago – someone was kind enough comment that “it was the worst piece of horological journalism they’d ever had the displeasure to read” – we aim to please – here’s some more shoddy story telling for you!



The OHMSS joins models such as the Seamaster Diver 300M Commander's Watch and a slew of other 007 inspired models – they are all super appealing but for good reason I feel this new one is the greatest yet!

The new Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition is the next in a legacy left by the Seamaster 300 Professional Quartz, the on-screen model from GoldenEye.



Talking of which, GoldenEye is still imho one of the best Bond movies of all-time – it certainly spawned the greatest N64 title, ever – anyone play N64 GoldenEye on multiplayer? I fear I am showing my age.

It’s crazy to think that Pierce Brosnan lit the Omega torch 26 years ago, now and here we are so many watches later with Daniel Craig carrying the torch for the last time, a sad day.



I wonder who will he pass it to? One thing’s for sure we are all well and truly hooked on James Bond Omega colabs. Here’s to another 25 years of them.

ZELOS Hammerhead 2

There are 10 recognized species of hammerhead sharks – some have been known to swim in schools of up to a couple of hundred.

Here comes one of the largest schools of Hammerhead Divers we’ve ever seen from ZELOS – 24 models strong and with even more diversity than the shark species that they were inspired by.



First launched by Zelos in 2016, the Hammerhead makes its return with an all-new design that recalls the dive watch heydays of the 1970s;

however boasting the latest watchmaking technologies on offer in addition to the most current aesthetic enhancements.



The case now features a Helium Escape Valve, dual C3 and BGW9 lume on the hands and overall improved build quality.



Meteorite was also introduced as a dial on the Hammerhead; Zelos wanted to top this off with a first for the watch industry, a Meteorite diver’s bezel.



The rugged case is offered in CUSN8 Bronze or 316L Stainless steel and is water resistant to 1000m.

Its unique facets are fully CNC-machined for precision and the sharp lines that the Hammerhead is known for.



The distinctive cushion-shaped case, once common among many dive watches, has been given an angular facelift.

A high double domed crystal tops off the vintage influences for the Hammerhead.



The large, lumed crown is suitable for operation with gloves on, yet strategically offset to prevent discomfort on the wrist.



Choose from Seiko NH35 or ETA 2892 automatic movements with a choice of closed Steel case-back with engraved Hammerhead sharks motif or open Sapphire with custom rotor.
