50 Years of 007

India Today - - SPICE -

Her Majesty’s se­cret ser­vant’s iconic time­piece re­ceives the re-imag­i­na­tion treat­ment by Omega’s crafts­men to cel­e­brate 50 years of Bond on the sil­ver screen. The in­no­va­tive up­date of the Sea­mas­ter Diver 300m James Bond watch worn by 007 since Golden Eye. Just like any in­dis­pens­able gad­get from Q’s lab the Sea­mas­ter is re­plete with ex­tra fea­tures. A spe­cial he­lium es­cape valve al­lows he­lium atoms to es­cape dur­ing de­com­pres­sion, par­tic­u­larly nec­es­sary for pro­fes­sional divers op­er­at­ing from div­ing bells. There are two ver­sions of the James Bond 007 50th An­niver­sary col­lec­tor’s piece. The 41 mm ver­sion has 11 ap­plied in­dexes; the 36.25 mm watch has ten with a di­a­mond in­dex at the 7 o’clock po­si­tion, a re­minder that this watch was cre­ated to hon­our 007. The in­dexes are coated with white Su­per­Lu­mi­nova with a blue emis­sion, al­low­ing ease of read­ing in all light con­di­tions. Both ver­sions fea­ture Omega’s cal­i­bre 2507 self-wind­ing move­ment fit­ted with the in­cred­i­ble co-ax­ial es­cape­ment that has driven a rev­o­lu­tion in me­chan­i­cal watch­mak­ing. While some of the ad­vanced fea­tures will ap­peal par­tic­u­larly to divers, the James Bond 007 50th an­niver­sary col­lec­tor’s piece will prove ir­re­sistible to fans of 007 and to those in­ter­ested in dis­tinc­tive time­pieces.
