Limited edition model has been made in anticipation of the 24th Bond movie, Spectre
Watch manufacturer Omega has created a limited edition model inspired by none other than, “Bond, James Bond.”
The timeless action-hero has inspired the Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M, made in anticipation of the 24th Bond movie, Spectre.
The watch, which is part of the Seamaster line, is decorated with the Bond family coat of arms.
The symbol is repeatedly intertwined in a blue pattern on the watch’s blue dial. It also appears near the tip of the yellow coloured seconds hand.
Omega stated that the blue dial colour was chosen to match that of James Bond’s watch in his last movie, Skyfall.
Yet perhaps the most striking element of the 41.5 mm stainless steel timepiece is the sapphire crystal caseback, cut and shaped to resemble a gun barrel, the renowned 007 mark.
The barrel is “associated with James Bond’s adventurous spirit,” stated the watch giant in a press release.
As the model is powered by Omega’s new Master Co-Axial calibre 8507, it is resistant to magnetic fields greater than 15,007 gauss; referring to Bond’s “license to kill” number, “007.”
The stainless steel timepiece, said to debut sometime this year, will only be produced in 15,007 pieces, again signifying Bond’s legendary digits.For all the latest fashion trends from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
