The 25th film in the James Bond series (No Time To Die) will be released in April 2020, and OMEGA released a new watch (model: 126.96.36.199.01.001) worn in the film. In addition to appearing on the screen, this non-limited edition watch will go on sale in February next year.
The design of the new Seamaster 300m diving 007 version watch takes military needs into account and is the result of cooperation between the brand and Daniel Craig and the 007 producers. Omega maintained close contact with the actor throughout the design process and referenced his professional knowledge of James Bond to understand the special features that the watch may need to be assembled.
Craig’s influence and recommendations played an important role. He said, “When working with Omega, we think that lightweight watches are very important for soldiers like 007. I also recommend retro colors, adding related elements to give the watch a unique look. The final result looks simply Incredible. “
This 42mm watch is made of secondary titanium and features a mesh bracelet of the same material and an innovative adjustable buckle. This sturdy and lightweight material is perfect for undercover agents.
To further reduce weight, Omega uses a brown tropical aluminum bezel and dial. The diving scale, black pointer and time scale are all coated with retro Super-LumiNova fluorescent materials, showing a classic appearance.
On the case back, you can see a string of numbers that are exactly the same format as on military watches. “0552” is the British Navy code, “923 7697” refers to a diving watch, the letter “A” means a watch with a screw-in crown, and “007” is the James Bond’s agent code. Finally, the number “62” is designed to pay tribute to the year of release of the first movie of 007 series, “Dr. No.”
The new watch features a NAIAD LOCK design to ensure that the engraving lettering is always in the upright position. This watch has a particularly impressive 8806 Coaxial Co-Axial Observatory movement, which meets the industry’s highest standards of accuracy, time-of-day performance, and anti-magnetic performance.
The watch will go on sale in the Omega boutique next February, featuring a charming titanium mesh bracelet or a dark brown, gray and beige NATO striped strap, and is presented in a special brown fabric belt. It is reported that the watch’s official website price is more than 10,000 US dollars. If you just like the appearance of this watch, a reasonably priced replica watch is more recommended, all you need to do is wait patiently.
