OMEGA Launches Commander’s Watch in Honor of James Bond

When it comes to watches, only the finest will do for 007.

James Bond is known for sharp suits and distinctive timepieces wherever he goes. Sean Connery wore Rolexes throughout much of the 1950s, 60s and 70s. When Roger Moore became Mr. Bond, he usually wore digital display Seiko’s. Into more modern times (since 1995), Bond has taken an OMEGA with him on every adventure.

To celebrate three important milestones – the 50th anniversary of “You Only Live Twice,” the 40th of “The Spy Who Loved Me,” and the 20th of “Tomorrow Never Dies,” the Swiss brand created a limited edition of the Seamaster Diver 300M in Commander’s Watch regalia.

The watch pays tribute to the Royal Navy with splashes of white, blue, and red throughout the entire piece. It’s 41mm stainless steel case features a blue ceramic bezel and a Liquidmetal diving scale and red rubber covering the first 15 minutes.

Smaller features for this edition include the 007 gun logo counterweight on the central second hand and a red number 7 in the date window (all other numbers are blue).

The blue, red, and grey NATO bracelet is a five-stripe pattern as further appropriate tribute to Navy heritage.

The watch comes in two limited editions: A stainless steel model numbered to 7,007 pieces with a “naval pin” that reflects the design of the NATO strap. An 18k yellow gold model is offered with just seven examples available.

The Seamaster 300 dates back to 1957, issued as a popular choice for military divers around the world. You can join the troop and discover your own Commander’s Watch here.
