The newest James Bond movie, called Spectre, will hit theaters on November 6th of this year and, as we all have expected and anticipated, Omega Replica Classic has unveiled its latest official 007 watch, the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra James Bond Limited Edition, to coincide with the film’s release. In this article from my blog, Watch-Insider.com, I reveal more about the new timepiece.
The dial of this new Omega Seamaster watch is inspired by the coat of arms of the Bond family, and Omega Replica Constellation says that the watch itself will be limited to the odd number of 15,007 pieces. The brand didn’t arrive at this number by coincidence, however: the movement used in the modern versions of the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra, of which this watch is one, resists magnetic fields greater than 15,000 Gauss. Combine that with Bond’s famous “007” numeral and the “15,007” number makes sense. You’ll find this number on the dial and also on the back of the watch, which indicates the series number and the text “15,007 Gauss.” Personally, I very much like the contrast between the yellow and the blue elements on the dial.
The Omega Seamaster Aquas Terra James Bond Limited Edition has a 41.5-mm case and is powered by Omega’s automatic Caliber 8507. In addition to its anitmagnetic properties, the version of the movement, according to Omega, boasts a newly designed winding rotor inspired by the iconic James Bond gun-barrel motif. I will update the article with a photo when Omega releases it.
So who wants to bet that the new Omega Replica Seamaster Aqua Terra James Bond Limited Edition will end up playing a major role in James Bond’s latest adventure? Perhaps there will be a scene with a huge magnetic field, in which everything stops and is rendered useless except for Agent 007’s antimagnetic watch? Time will tell…
