Omega is releasing 2 brand-new watches to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the James Bond movie franchise together with the brand name’s 17 year relationship with 007’s wrist.
The 2 42mm Seamaster Scuba diver 300M 60 Years of James Bond editions can be found in stainless-steel and 18k canopus gold respectively however what everybody is more thrilled about is their film-themed animated casebacks which duplicate the popular 007 opening series– with Bond in shape backdropped by a spinning weapon barrel graphic.
Without getting too technical the moiré animation is effected by 2 discs. The bottom one includes a spiral powered by the watch’s main used and the transparent leading layer is marked with lines which combine with the spinning bottom layer to finish the image of the lead character in action.
Watches are ending up being home entertainment systems in their own right. The Omega launch follows Tag Heuer’s Connected Calibre E4 previously this year with its gallery function for showing the owner’s NFT collection. And after that there’s Hublot’s Big Bang e-Watch with its World Cup countdown center. FYI the latter brand name’s marketing technique supplemented conventional advertisement channels with an extra metaverse play including an activation in photorealistic metaverse Spatial.
The bezel of the gold variation is circled around with green and yellow cured natural diamonds. The spectrum of 10 various tones– from forest green to gold/cognac– are a homage to the flag of Jamaica where Bond author Ian Fleming made his house, GoldenEye. The grey silicon of the dial is a nod to the location’s beaches. Each dial is special due to the crystallites of the product.
The dial of the stainless-steel variation is made from blue oxalic anodized aluminium with laser-engraved waves while the bezel includes a diving scale filled with white Super-LumiNova. The watch itself is influenced by very same Seamaster that 007 used in GoldenEye.
The 1995 motion picture significant Omega’s very first look in the James Bond franchise– thanks to Oscar-winning outfit designer Lindy Hemming on the basis that Bond was “a navel male.” The Seamaster 300, initially launched in 1957, was released to military scuba divers around the globe and, in 1967, a well-known batch of second generation Seamaster 300s was likewise provided to the MoD for concern to specific systems.
The steel 60 Years of James Bond Seamaster 300 is available in a blue wood discussion box with 3 dots influenced by the motion picture franchise’s opening title series.
And while its secret push button opener does not rather determine up to the laser, explosive and electro-magnetic abilities of the imaginary Bond watches throughout the years, it’s a good touch for armchair secret representatives.
