OMEGA has unveiled two new Seamaster Diver 300M timepieces to commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the James Bond franchise.

Among the expansive collections of films from the James Bond film franchise, GoldenEye holds a special place for the label as it was the first that features the titular character wearing an OMEGA Seamaster timepiece. When explaining the style choice, Lindy Hemming, the costume designer from GoldenEye to Casino Royale said, “I was convinced that Commander Bond, a naval man, a diver, and a discreet gentleman of the world would wear this watch.” This marked the start of OMEGA and James Bond’s partnership that spanned both generations of James Bond actors, thus gracing the wrists of both Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig’s 007.

Reimagining the iconic timepiece that James Bond wore in GoldenEye, OMEGA unveiled the Seamaster Diver 300M watches with two editions — Stainless Steel and Canopus Gold™. Both editions emulate the iconic opening sequence with a caseback design that stars a silhouette of Bond against a spinning gun barrel backdrop.

The Stainless Steel edition is powered by a precise Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8806, fitted with blue oxalic anodized aluminum bezels and dials, as well as a mesh-style bracelet that reiterates 007’s timepiece from No Time To Die. Meanwhile, powered by the luxurious Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8807, the Canopus Gold™ edition is crafted with OMEGA’s own 18k Canopus Gold™ along with a crystallites-embedded dial that pays tribute to the Jamaican flag.

On the accessories front, OMEGA also offers special edition cufflinks that draw inspiration from the Quantum Of Solace film, while the nylon-braided and brushed titanium sailing bracelets pay homage to the NATO strap worn by 007 in No Time To Die.

The Seamaster Diver 300M 60 Years of James Bond watches will be available soon online and at select retailers of OMEGA. For more information, head to OMEGA’s website.
