The first Omega Seamasters was based loosely around waterproof watches made for the Royal Navy at the close of WW2, what made the Seamaster appealing was its use of an O-Ring gasket which gave it temperature and depth resistance. In 1955, the Swiss Laboratory for Watch Research tested out 50 Seamaster cases with a 60-meter depth rating, Omega was so confident that they strapped one to the outside of a plane and flew it over the North pole in 1956. Lindy Hemming, the costume designer, chose the first Bond Omega, a Seamaster 300M Quartz, for Pierce Brosnan’s “Goldeneye” Bond debut in 1995. Here we have an Omega Seamaster 007 Edition, No Time To Die, which was made for the film release in 2020, it was the 25th year that Omega and Bond share a screen. The 42mm facet-edged Grade 2 Titanium case curves over your wrist with "twisted" bevelled lugs, on the right side, is a screw-down signed crown protected by shoulders. The rotating bezel is unidirectional, with angled edges for grip and a brown tropical 60 minutes dive insert. The numerals have a coating in light Old Radium SuperLuminova. On the left side, is a Helium escape valve. Domed anti-reflective coated sapphire crystal protects the matte brown dial, applied disc and baton indexes coated in light Old Radium SuperLuminova mark the hours, skeletonised sword hands have luminescence infill. The sweeping second’s hand has a red tip and lollipop counterweight and at 6 o’clock, a 'Pheon' arrow, the text is expertly applied, reminding us of the Navy connection 007 has, above Omega proudly states, “CO‑AXIAL MASTER CHRONOMETER, 300m/1000 ft. On the reverse, Omega has designed a new system of locking the case back, a ceramic Naiad locking system, the system is patented and the patent roughly states it's a locking system designed for a screw-down case back that allows the user to orient engravings in proper alignment without matching a given case back to a given case. “Naiad” is Greek for mythical water spirits and a deep engraving of the 'Pheon' arrow and the model reference in the centre, inside an automatic Omega Cal. 8806, 35 jewels, 25,200 beats per hour. Omega uses modern materials to achieve accuracy, and reliability, such as a silicon hairspring and a Titanium balance wheel, resistant to magnetic fields reaching 15,000 gausses, the rotor is bidirectional for improved efficiency. Certified Master Chronometer, approved by METAS, ”Swiss National Metrology Institute”, the watch goes through COSC certification before being selected for the eight tests run by METAS. This watch comes fitted on its Omega Grade 2 Titanium mesh bracelet with the adjustable upgraded clasp and push-button release and the watch comes with an original Omega Walnut presentation box (not the original box the watch came with) and paperwork.
With the new release of this watch in blue and Stainless Steel, it's made me like this reference even more personally, this feels far more refined and the design I prefer, plus this really does feel like a watch James Bond would wear... When you see our asking price it becomes even more appealing too, a nice large saving on retail and one to not miss out on.
Formerly known as the La Generale Watch Co. in 1848 founded by Louis Brandt in La Chaux-de-Fonds. When he died in 1879, his sons carried on his dream. In 1880 they moved to 96 Rue Jakob-Stampfli where they remain today. The brothers produced their first mass-produced calibre, the Labrador In 1885. Just a few years later in 1892, they produced the first minute-repeater. In 1903 they renamed the company Omega until 1982 when they officially changed their name to Omega SA. During WW1 Omega watches were used as official timekeepers for the Royal Flying Corps and the US Army. In 1930, Omega and Tissot merged together to form Société Suisse pour l'Industrie Horlogère (SSIH) In 1931, another group was formed - Allgemeine Schweizerische Uhrenindustrie AG (ASUAG). Where SSIH was primarily French-speaking, ASUAG was founded by the more German-speaking members of the Swiss watch industry. In 1948 they introduced the first edition of one of its most symbolic watches: the Seamaster. Omega first introduced the Constellation in 1952. At the time it was Omega's flagship timepiece. The first models had a Cal. 354 bumper movement in them. Later in 1955 Omega introduced the Automatic Cal. 50x, followed in 1959 by the Cal.55x (no date) and 56x (date) versions. Many of the Constellations came with pie-pan dials, diamond indexes, and fancy lug configurations. All the gold Constellations of that time have the Observatory of Geneva hand engraved on the back. The stainless steel and stainless steel/gold versions had a gold medallion on the back with the Observatory of Geneva. The eight stars above the Observatory stand for the many exploits of Omega in the world Chronometer competition. Celebrating the fact that all Constellations are Chronometer Certified. In 1962, when astronaut Wally Schirra wore a Speedmaster on his Mercury Sigma 7 Mission, making it the first Omega watch to enter space. After rigorous tests, NASA used Omega for all their Apollo missions including the 1969 Moon landing of Apollo 11. Today Omega is still an astronaut's first choice. In 1969, President Nixon famously said it was “too valuable” and turned down the first-ever all-gold Speedmaster Professional Deluxe. As a response to the ever-growing threat of electronic watches to the manufacturers of mechanical watches, Omega and many Swiss brands such as Rolex and Patek Philippe formed Centre Electronique Horloger (CEH). Prototypes began to appear in 1967 with their production starting in 1968. Then In 1972, Omega introduced the reference, 198.030, which included the Omega calibre 1250, a ‘tuning-fork electronic movement which was made under licence from Bulova. Later we saw a merger of SSIH and ASUAG into SMH, or Société de Microélectronique et d’Horlogerie. This merger took place in 1983. In 1992, the company acquired Blancpain, and in 1998 they officially rebranded themselves from SMH to the Swatch Group. Then, in 1999, they purchased and integrated Breguet into the Swatch Group.
