The Omega "Spectre" James Bond Limited Edition

A few months ago, we decided to recap every Omega James Bond watch. This recap was right before we received our first Seamaster 300 "Spectre" Limited Edition. With the movie scheduled to be released next week, it seems a great time to post pictures of the actual watch appearing in the latest edition of the James Bond film franchise, "Spectre".

The Spectre watch is significant as it is the first piece worn on screen by the Bond character that is visually identical to a limited edition. Both the watch in the film, and the 7,007-piece limited edition "Spectre" are a variant of the Omega Seamaster 300 which takes design cues from Omega's first professional grade dive watch offered in 1957.

The limited edition Spectre, along with a standard production blue 41mm Aqua Terra also appearing in the film, will be Bond's first on screen appearances wearing watches that can resist magnetism of 15,000 Gauss. The Spectre watch will distinguish itself from other Omega 300 Seamaster models by featuring a 5-stripe black and gray Omega NATO strap, and a bi-directional bezel with a 12-hour scale. Furthermore, it will feature an Omega logo in place of the Arabic "12" as the top hour indice, and a "lollipop" second hand with a circular tip instead of the diamond-pointed version of the original. The 12-hour scale is used for a second time zone and may relate to a plot point of the movie. The watch also comes with a steel bracelet. Unlike the standard production Omega 300 bracelet with polished center links (PCL), the Spectre steel bracelet features an all-brushed finish. The bracelet also gives a nod to the Bond character with "007" inscribed on the clasp.

Below are additional photos of the Seamaster 300 "Spectre" Limited Edition which retails for $7,500. Beyond the Spectre photos is a re-issue of the article we wrote about the James Bond Aqua Terra Limited Edition which retails for $7,350.

James Bond Aqua Terra Limited Edition

The 2015 watch celebrating James Bond, but not tied to the latest film is the first limited edition Aqua Terra in the series. Like the watch worn in Skyfall, it features a blue dial, but this time the watch is 41.5mm instead of 38.5mm. The major design hallmark of the Bond Aqua Terra is that the Bond family coat of arms forms the background of the dial in a similar way that the "007" logo formed the dial in the 50th Anniversary piece. This coat of arms is also lumed near the tip of the second hand. The bullet from the 50th Anniversary 300 M also makes a return, but this time it's the center of a skeletonized rotor resembling a gun barrel. The skeletonized rotor gives way to show the 8507 movement, which is a modified version of the upgraded 8500C calibre. Yellow is also a dominant color in the watch as it's the first time yellow has been prominently used in an Omega since the original 15,000 Gauss Aqua Terra in 2013. This watch has the same technology as the 15,000 Gauss, but has 15,007 Gauss to evoke "007", and to mirror the number of available pieces in the limited edition (15,007). It comes standard with a bracelet and a blue fabric strap with yellow contrast stitching. Below are photos of the Limited Edition Bond Aqua Terra.
