As you may recall the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Master Chronometer 007 ‘No Time To Die’ Edition was originally unveiled back in December 2019, but due to the pandemic we only got to see it in theatres in October 2021. Here at EiT we’re proud to still hold a pair in stock as you can check-out following these links for the NATO strap or Milanese bracelet option. If these holidays didn’t send one your way don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment or get in touch with us.Most of these 007 watches don’t tend to appear in the movies they represent, but just like in 2015 this edition was actually worn by Daniel Craig in the film while playing James Bond.Not only that but the actor, who said good-bye to the James Bond character in this farewell performance, also provided direct input that led to some specific design options for this movie star status Seamaster. The 42mm case is made of grade 2 titanium with only a 13mm thickness, making it slightly slimmer than the standard Seamaster Diver 300M models due to a new doming approach to the top sapphire-crystal glass.Unlike most modern Seamaster 300M watches that feature an open caseback, this edition has opted for a closed back with their Naiad Lock. It is also engraved with the military broad arrow, plus the numbers 007/62 as a reference to the first original Bond film, “Dr. No” originally released in 1962. Mounted to the case is a unidirectional titanium rotating bezel, enhanced by an aluminium brown and beige “Tropical” bezel insert with a 60m diving scale in positive relief. This was an old-school move on Omega's part by switching out the usual ceramic insert for the less employed aluminium.It comes equipped with a screw-in setting crown, plus a helium escape valve aligned with the 10 o’clock position. All topped by a domed sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating, which also assists with water-resistance on this watch reaching up to 300 meters (984 feet).Time is exhibited on a matte dark brown “Tropical” dial with beige (or the so-called “faux-patina”) colored round dotted hour index markers, single rectangle markers for the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions and a double rectangle marker for the 12 o’clock spot. Circling alongside the inner flange of the dial are portions of beige printed railroad-type minute index markers, divided by single markers for every 5-minute increment.It also features the printed vintage board arrow emblem above the 6 o’clock position, which is traditionally reserved for paraphernalia issued to the British military. The ”Seamaster” inscription has been highlighted by a red-font on the upper-half of the dial; which syncs up well with the thin red-tipped central seconds hand. The central minute hand, hour index, and bezel markings have all been fitted with a blue luminescent coating, while the central hand emits a green lume, for an enhanced legibility.
