Spectre, the new James Bond flick starring Daniel Craig as 007, will be out later this year which of course means there will be a new 007 watch. Actually I wouldn’t be surprised to see more than one Omega featured in Spectre, as was the case for Skyfall. In Skyfall, three distinct Omega watches were associated with the film, two SMPOs and a Seamaster Aqua Terra.
Unveiled recently is the 41.5mm steel Aqua Terra 150M Master Co-Axial “>15,007 Gauss” watch. It is “limited” though not really to 15,007 pieces. The 15,007 gauss rating of course speaks to Omega’s new amagentic technology which is now standard in the “Master Co-Axial” movements as I expounded upon last year (see: Omega Master Co-Axial Calibers Arrive: What Does it mean? March 2014). The watch dial is reportedly inspired by the Bond Family Coat of Arms — as seen in both dial pattern on the tip of the yellow seconds hand below.
To this watch I say “meh.”
By the way, if you want to get really hot and heavy on the topic of Bond watches I recommend my watch friend Dell Deaton’s website JamesBondWatches.com – the definitive resource, I think there is now doubt. Dell Deaton is an expert without equal when it comes to 007 watches.
