The upcoming James Bond “Spectre” movie will be in theaters November 15th, and for the 24th installment, Bond will be again wearing an Omega (or more than one like in “Skyfall”).
To celebrate the partnership Omega has created a special edition Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M Master Co-Axial timepiece with a guilloche pattern showing Bond’s family coat arms on the dial, as well as the same coat of arms on the tip of the central second hand. Additionally, the rotor is shaped like the inside of a gun barrel and the dial has “>15’007 GAUSS” printed on the dial in yellow.
The watch, powered by caliber 8507 (which is a caliber 8508 with the special Bond rotor), features Master Co-Axial technology, which means it utilizes the entire silicon assortment (hairspring, escapement and balance wheel). Merely calling it an anti-magnetic watch would be an understatement, as the level of resistance to magnetism is so high (at 15,000 gauss) that a soft iron cage is not even needed. Watch this video of the technology being demonstrated.
The case is 41.5 meters, water resistance is 150 meters and it will be issued in a 15,007 piece edition. Price is expected to be around $6,500.
