Omega Unveil New James Bond Watch
29th March 2006
Omega have unveiled a new Seamaster James Bond Limited Edition
watch, featuring the classic gun barrel emblem. The new James
Bond edition will be one of the first 007 watches to feature Omega's
new Co-Axial Escapement.
The Co-Axial Escapement is proprietary Omega technology that
drastically reduces the amount of friction in the "heart"
of the automatic mechanism and provides long-term reliability
and accuracy. The performance will be further improved by a free-sprung
balance that allows the user to make finer adjustments to the
watch. The automatic Omega caliber 2500 is housed in a 41mm stainless
steel case, and includes a 48-hour power reserve.
A screw-down back seals the mechanism in to the case and will
feature the number of the limited edition run. The face of the
watch features a stylised raised version of the classic gun barrel
emblem, and each watch will also be engraved and embossed with
the 007 logo. The second hand on the watch face ends with the
007 logo (see picture above), and the watch is completed by a
brushed and polished stainless steel bracelet and safety clasp,
engraved with the 007 logo.
The limited edition series will run for 10,007 pieces.
