Seamaster for the Spymaster: Omega SEAMASTER "60 YEARS OF JAMES BOND".

The first James Bond film was released a good 60 years ago, and the spy in the service of His Majesty wore an Omega Seamaster for the first time almost 30 years ago - which is why the Swiss watch brand is now dedicating very special models to its ambassador 007.

Style-conscious men know: An exclusive watch is much more than a timepiece. It is a fashion statement, an expression of character - but sometimes also a lifesaver. With built-in lasers, winches or explosive surprises. Admittedly, only the Omega Seamaster models of the legendary secret agent James Bond have the latter capabilities. But: on the 60th anniversary of the cinema franchise, passionate watch and Bond fans alike can rejoice, because the watch manufacturer is honouring the film character with an exclusive Seamaster Diver 300M with a diameter of 42 millimetres.

It combines the case aesthetics of the Seamaster from "Goldeneye" with the mesh bracelet from "No Time To Die", without neglecting the familiar and appreciated wave structure on the oxal-coloured aluminium dial. Of course, and quite obviously, the Seamaster also retains its rotating bezel and helium valve. Quasi undercover, but the real star performer: the glass case back, which recreates the famous opening sequence of 007 - with Bond in silhouette and a spinning gun barrel. This dynamic scene takes place under sapphire crystal decorated with micro-textured metallisation. The patent-pending animation of the moiré effect is linked to the barrel of the central lollipop second hand, framed by a graphic that echoes the iconic three dots from the opening sequence of the Agent films.

Also on board:
the familiar and appreciated wave structure on the oxal-coloured aluminium dial. Of course and quite obviously, the Seamaster also retains its rotating bezel and helium valve.

The watch is driven by the proven Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8806, which also withstands magnetic fields of up to 15,000 gauss and, with its free balance spring with silicon balance spring, offers automatic winding in both directions. Everything already blockbuster-suspicious? Wait until you see the blue, wave-patterned presentation box. Because not only does it pick up the circles of the film intro again - it also has a secret button. Where exactly? You'll have to find out for yourself.
