When it comes to James Bond movies and Omega watches, the two are practically inseparable. To this date, a total of eight films in a span of 20+ years, there are now a total of nine “James Bond” Omega timepieces released. With the recent release for the latest James Bond movie with Daniel Craig, “No Time To Die”, it was announced earlier that the featured watch that Daniel Craig would wear in the film would be yet another beautiful timepiece from Omega, the Seamaster Diver 300M CO‑AXIAL MASTER CHRONOMETER 42 MM 007 Edition. 184.108.40.206.01.001 (Mesh Strap) and 220.127.116.11.01.001 (NATO Strap).
This latest Omega timepiece that was worn in the film by Daniel Craig is a non-limited version, which was made available in Omega’s watch collection since early 2020. It comes with a titanium Milanese mesh band, as well as a striped NATO strap in beige, grey, and brown with 007 engraved on the loop.
Both versions of the the watches are presented in an exclusive brown suede fabric pouch. For those who didn’t know, Daniel Craig himself is a watch enthusiast. Along with the producers from the 007 film, Daniel Craig was working closely with Omega, giving ideas and suggestions where he wanted the watch to be light for the likes of a military man like the 007.
He also suggested the design should be somewhat with a vintage touch and colors to give the watch a unique look. The overall size for this Bond watch is 42mm, made with grade 2 titanium, which is used for the case, as well as the mesh band with its innovative adjustable buckle. This material is strong and lightweight, making it perfect for an undercover agent like James Bond. The particular Seamaster 300M operates with the Omega caliber 8806 movement with 55-hour power reserve is both highly accurate and robust.
On the case back, it features several military-usage numeral engravings – “0552” is the code-number specified for Navy personnel, “923 7697” being the number for a divers’ watch, and the letter “A” as code used to signify a watch with a screw-in crown. Add to this “007” for James Bond’s iconic agent number and the number “62” for the year of the very first James Bond film and this watch takes on a depth of history all its own. The Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Co-Axial Master Chronometer 42mm 18.104.22.168.01.001 (Mesh Strap & NATO) is listed at 9800.00USD and 22.214.171.124.01.001 (NATO Strap) is listed at 8600.00USD.
