Back in May Aston Martin announced they were releasing a limited edition version of the DBS Superleggera
to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of On Her Majesty’s Secret Service in 1969. A total of fifty cars in total are to be produced to a this spec.
Now Omega has got in on the act, announcing a special edition watch limited to a run of just 7,007. Which is all very well, except George Lazenby sported two Rolexes in the film, a Submariner and a Chronograph. Here are the details all the same.
Celebrating its enduring partnership with James Bond, Omega has created this Seamaster Diver 300m limited edition timepiece presented in its own presentation box with an additional stainless steel bracelet. With only 7,007 pieces available, the 42 mm stainless steel watch has a black rubber strap and features an 18K yellow gold plate on the side of the case, engraved with each limited edition number.
There is a black ceramic bezel with a white enamel diving scale, as well as a spiral-brushed black ceramic dial, which has been laser-engraved with a gun-barrel design. Its centre is exactly 9mm in diameter. 18K yellow gold is used for the hands, hour-markers and Bond family coat-of-arms at 12 o’clock.
Elsewhere, the number 7 on the date disc is in the 007 font, and a secret number 50 is hidden in the luminescent material of the 10 o’clock hour-marker – a reference to the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. On the inner side of the sapphire crystal caseback, you will find the Bond family coat-of-arms metallised in gold and black. Inside, the watch is driven by the Omega Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8800.
