Omega Seamaster 300M ref 2541.80 in “Goldeneye.”

Does James Bond’s first film and 17th outing of the franchise, the 1995 Goldeneye, resonate with you? Pierce Brosnan (the James Bond) wore Omega Seamaster 300M Quartz Professional 2541.80 through the film, no matter the outfit. The timepiece featured a blue bezel, blue face case on a stainless steel bracelet. Omega Seamaster 300M offered James Bond the laser beam and remote detonator functions. He used the laser beam that shot out through the lume pipe on the bezel to burn the train’s floor and allowed him to escape with Natalya Simonova before the explosion. He activated the remote detonator whenever he pressed the helium valve crown, a screw-down crown shielding the gas escape valve designed for deep diving in a normal Seamaster.

Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M 42mm in “Quantum of Solace.”

The characteristic action-packed James Bond film showcased another endorsement of two Omega watches. These watches include the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m 42mm ref 232.42.21.01.001 and Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M 38.4mm ref. 231.10.39.21.03.003. The watches revealed a return to classic sizing. One intriguing fact was that the titanium-made Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M was originally designed for the Bond film. In 2005, the Omega Planet Ocean series was converted into the Seamaster family and maintained its homage to the dive heritage and maritime legacy of the Omega brand. The watch featured a date window, minute seconds sub-dial, sapphire crystal lens, 12-hour and 60-minute sub-dials, and a tough 45.5mm stainless steel case integrated with a black ceramic one-directional rotating bezel.

Omega Seamaster 300 Master Chronometer Spectre Edition in “Skyfall”

Omega Seamaster 300 Master Chronometer Spectre Edition is featured in the 2015 Spectre instalment. This watch was considered the coolest James Bond timepiece of all time. The super watch boasts of the vintage-inspired 12-hour bezel, broad arrow hands, lollipop second hands, vintage lume, historic Bond NATO strap and big luminous indexes. The watch was instrumental to Bond’s escape from Christoph Waltz’ automatic lobotomy machine.

Omega Seamaster Diver 300M in “Tomorrow Never Dies”

The Seamaster 300 Professional chronometer ref 2531.80 represents what the core James Bond watches should be. It featured a blue dial with a separate wave pattern and a 43.5mm brush steel case. The timepiece’s hands come made with unique, bold sword-shaped elements, though modernised with skeleton-like designs. The Diver’s aesthetics were possible with the aid of anthracite Super-LumiNova. Omega Co-Axial Master Chronograph Calibre 8806 seen through the sapphire case back, represents the highest certification standards for performance, magnetic interference and precision by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology. The calibre built with titanium balance-wheel and silicon hairspring is integrated with 35 jewels and beats at 25,200VPH.
