This watch is the Omega 50th anniversary of James Bond 007 watch. Have to say,the replica Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean watch is perfect for Bond, because it’s rugged, handsome and precise. Daniel Craig wear this Seamaster Planet Ocean in the movie “Skyfall ” as 007.And today I’m going hands-on with this Bond’s watch,of course,it’s just a replica.
First,you’ll notice the grid structured black dial, meant to recall the grill of an iconic English sports car.In fact, you might prefer this watch to a regular Planet Ocean in spite of its Bond connection. If you’re a Bond fan however, it will just be great.
The Bond’s cues can be found in a few places. Most notable is the applied “007” logo at 7 o’clock, which integrates into the dial without feeling forced. Adorning the rotor of the movement is an engraved “Skyfall 007” insignia, which is neither here nor there but it doesn’t obstruct the view of the aggressive looking 8507 movement. Furthermore, the clasp of the bracelet sees the addition of the “007” logo to keep the Omega symbol.
The movement is automatic, and the case is sized just right at 42mm, the inset ceramic bezel makes it appear a touch smaller still. If you’ve been around any Omega diving watch recently you know how amazing.
Omega has been producing James Bond limited edition watches for some time and personally, being only a casual fan of the Bond films, I don’t entirely understand the appeal. I can appreciate the overlap for both watch enthusiasts and Bond fans, but Bond doesn’t actually wear that version of the watch, he is wearing the standard version, and that is the one I would have.
