When Daniel Craig returned as hard-wearing British secret agent James Bond 007 in the 2015 blockbuster movie SPECTRE, he was once again reunited with his Company supplied Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Co-Axial, marking the rule-bending spy’s seventh outing with his Omega Seamaster co-starring.
Always a hugely popular edition, especially among those of us who, behind closed doors and posing in front of the mirror, quite fancy ourselves in the role, the new Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Co-Axial James Bond SPECTRE limited edition continues a tradition of cool and rugged wristwatches.
A deep blue dial with vivid yellow detail sets the scene on a piece which bristles with cues associating the James Bond character. It’s the Bond family crest which draws attention to the seconds hand, as well as being the theme for the repeating pattern on the dial too.
The tapered hour indices are applied steel with luminous accents and like the Broadarrow hands are prominent and clearly legible in low light conditions. Inside beats the Omega Cal. 8507 Co-Axial automatic movement, updated with anti-magnetic components and tested for precision in a magnetic field of 15,000 gauss, its twin barrels delivering 60 hours of energy.
Presented in a 41.5mm polished stainless steel case with sapphire crystal and screw-in crown, the action continues round the back with the spinning circular rotor stripped back to resemble the rifling inside Bond’s gun barrel, and a gold bullet stock stamped James Bond at its centre visible through the transparent exhibition caseback.
A limited edition of 15,007 pieces might sound a lot, but considering the continuous and unquenchable worldwide demand for Bond collectibles, they disappear quickly.
The Limited Edition offer a brand new in box example of this James Bond essential.
