Omega and James Bond Together Again
The launch of a watch has never been so enthusiastically awaited for as the Omega Seamaster and Agent 007.
When the actor Daniel Craig Characterize once again James Bond in the incredible movie Quantum of Solace, he wore an Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m Co-Axial Chronometer. The fans of Bond movies and the unconditional followers of the brand Omega knew that since 1995, 007 has been using a blue dial Seamaster. In this film he used a black dial Seamaster.
Omega has been associated with James Bond movies since 1995. That year, Pierce Brosnan took over the role of James Bond and began wearing the Omega Seamaster Quartz Professional (model 2541.80.00) in the movie GoldenEye. In all later films, Brosnan wore an Omega Seamaster Professional Chronometer (model 2531.80.00). The producers wanted to update the image of the fictional “super-spy” to a more distinctly sophisticated “Euro” look.
For the 40th anniversary of James Bond (2002) a commemorative edition of the watch was made available model 2537.80.00 (10,007 units). The watch is identical to the model 2531.80.00 except the blue watch dial had a 007 logo inscribed across it and also machined into the caseback. The band also had 007 inscribed on the clasp.
Daniel Craig, the current James Bond of Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace, also wears the Omega Seamaster. The Seamaster Planet Ocean (model 2900.50.91) in the first part of Casino Royale, and the Seamaster Professional 300M in the latter part (from travelling to Montenegro). He even goes so far as to mention Omega by name when questioned by Vesper Lynd. In connection with the launch of the film, Omega released an 007-special of the Professional 300M, featuring the 007-gun logo on the second hand and the rifle pattern on the watch face. This created a stylized representation of the gunbarrel sequence of Bond movies.
Omega released a second James Bond limited edition watch in 2006. This was a Seamaster Planet Ocean model with a limited production of 5007 units. The model is similar to what Craig wears earlier on in the film. However, it has a small orange colored 007 logo on the second hand, an engraved caseback signifying the Bond connection, and an engraved 007 on the clasp.
In the last movie, Quantum of Solace, Craig wears the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean with a black face and steel braclet (45mm version). Another limited edition was released featuring the checkered “PPK grip” face with the Quantum of Solace logo over it.Culture” section to help you make the right buying decision.
