This year marks three noteworthy anniversaries for the James Bond franchise: the 50th anniversary of “You Only Live Twice”; the 40th anniversary of “The Spy Who Loved Me”; and the 20th anniversary of “Tomorrow Never Dies.”
In each of these films, James Bond can be seen wearing his official military uniform.
Inspired by Bond’s rank and regalia, OMEGA has created the “Commander’s Watch”.
The OMEGA Seamaster Diver 300M “Commander’s Watch” Limited Edition
In design, OMEGA’s “Commander’s Watch” salutes the ensign colours of the British Royal Navy. Touches of white, blue and red are found throughout the watch, creating a suave and stately look.
The 41 mm stainless steel case features a blue ceramic bezel with a Liquidmetal® diving scale and red rubber covering the first 15 minutes.
The dial is polished white ceramic and includes 12 blue indexes, the word “Seamaster” written in red and blue skeleton hands.
Unique features include the 007 gun logo counterweight on the central seconds hand and the number 7 in the date window which is coloured red, while all other numbers are blue.
The NATO bracelet is blue, red and grey and follows a 5-stripe pattern with a polished buckle. On the wave-edged caseback, the “three stripes” of the Commander’s naval insignia are featured on the rotor, along with a 007 “bullet” design.
The stainless steel model is limited to just 7,007 pieces and is driven by the OMEGA Calibre 2507. It comes with a 3-year warranty and is presented in a special box that has been inspired by a military medal case. The box also contains a stainless steel bracelet, a changing tool and a “naval pin” that mirrors the design of the NATO strap. It comes at a price of 175,000 THB.
Additionally, the “Commander’s Watch” also comes in an 18K yellow gold model, limited to just 7 pieces.
