Luxury watches have a certain classic style about them that makes them timeless but this doesn’t mean that new models can’t demand attention. On the contrary actually, big luxury watch manufacturers, such as Omega, have to keep up with the times and offer new versions of existing models or even come up with something from scratch. When talking about Omega watches, the Seamaster is one of the most popular and it was the choice of James Bond ever since GoldenEye.

There are now fifty years since the first James Bond movie was released and to mark this occasion, Omega introduced a true collector’s piece, an update from the original Seamaster Diver 300m that would keep up with the changing image of Agent 007 but also keep true to his unique style.

The special edition James Bond 007 50th Anniversary Collector’s Piece is available in two sizes, for men and for women, 41mm and 36.25mm. Made out of stainless steel and with ceramic bezel rings, the watches are truly beautiful and they represent the movie legend perfectly. There are some special touches that keep remembering people why this watch is so special; for example, there are diving scales on the bezel and the number 50 is red while the others are silver. There is also the 007 pattern on the dial and the smaller version has a diamond index for the 7 mark. The back case is very interesting with the gun barrel design and the back of a bullet right in the center that has “James Bond 50 years” engraved on it.

Both versions have the same movement, the calibre 2507 self-winding with a Co-Axial escapement and are a ready to go to great depths or be fashionable for any event. There is also a helium escape valve that allows decompression when diving and, as the name implies, the watch is water resistant for up to 300 m.

The watch is only available in a limited edition, 11,007 for the 41mm version and 3,007 for the 36.25mm version so not every James Bond fan will manage to get their hands on one. The final verdict is that the anniversary update looks incredible with a lot of details that pay homage to the famous spy.
