Omega and the James Bond establishment have been accomplices in style since 1995, with the watchmaker providing Seamasters for the world’s most acclaimed covert agent in a variety of adaptations and difficulties (incidentally in any event, including lasers). For the ninth film in this organization, the up and coming “No Time To Die,” Omega has made an exceptional and roughly attractive new Seamaster 007 Edition: the reference 18.104.22.168.01.001.
Like the greater part of the watches that have graced Bond’s wrist in the 57 years of 007 movies from enormous crown Submariners to quartz Seiko chronographs, the most recent Seamaster 007 Edition is an impression of the ebb and flow horological zeitgeist. Expanding on the base structure of the flow Seamaster Professional, the 007 Edition includes a liberal aiding of fauxtina warmth.
Both the aluminum bezel and dial include a tropical matured treatment, going from the standard dark to an extremely dull matte darker while the dial content and lume fills have been rendered in a profound old radium khaki. Redd emphasizes on the Seamaster signature and the seconds hand include a punch of complexity, yet maybe the most intriguing expansion to the conventional Seamaster Professional dial sits directly over the six o’clock hour list. The printed wide bolt symbol, customarily held for gear gave to the British military, could turn into a point of conflict on this watch. While vintage “expansive bolt” military watches are an immense hit with authorities today, having the token show up on a timepiece not the slightest bit subsidiary with the Royal Army, RAF, Royal Navy or Royal Marines (other than anecdotal Royal Navy Commander James Bond) smacks a touch of presenting, best case scenario and taken valor even under the least favorable conditions.
The 42 millimeter instance of the Seamaster 007 Edition utilizes a similar structure as the Seamaster Pro with a couple of minor changes. The sapphire gem has been domed here, including a vintage pizazz and marginally lessening the general thickness. The greatest news, in any case, is the utilization of Grade 2 titanium for a lighter, increasingly solid case generally. Around back, the Seamaster 007 Edition shuns a showcase window for a military issue styled sequential caseback etching. Notwithstanding another wide bolt mark, the etching numbers highlight a couple of wily references to the Bond arrangement including the numbers 007/62, reviewing the first 1962 arrival of the principal Bond film, “Dr. No.” This vintage styled piece is offered on a Grade 2 titanium Milanese work arm ornament for included outdated energy, or a Bond design dark and dim NATO tie.
The Seamaster 007 Edition is fueled by a similar Co-Axial Master Chronometer 8806 programmed development as the ebb and flow Seamaster Professional, Seamaster 300, Railmaster, and Seamaster 1948. Past Omega’s creative co-hub escapement and 15,000 gauss attractive opposition, the bore 8806 offers 55 hours of intensity hold.
While the Seamaster 007 Edition will get its very own star turn when “No Time To Die” hits theaters in April 2020, the watch is set for an overall discharge at Omega approved vendors in February for $8,100 on the NATO tie or $9,100 with the Milanese armlet.
