No film is more eagerly anticipated than a James Bond film. Similarly, no watch debut is more enthusiastically welcomed than that of the Omega Seamaster, connected to a 007 film.

Omega has released the Seamaster Planet Ocean 600 m ‘Quantum of Solace’ limited edition watch to honour the latest film in the franchise starring Daniel Craig.

The new watch has all the features which have made the Seamaster Planet Ocean one of the world’s most popular timepieces. These include Omega’s calibre 2500 self-winding chronometer movement fitted with the revolutionary co-axial escapement, which reduces friction while offering better accuracy over time. It also has a power reserve of 48 hours. A free sprung balance increases its precision. The watch is perfectly designed for diving: it is water resistant up to a depth of 600 metres and has both, a helium escape valve and a unidirectional rotating bezel.

The watch has some unique details, setting it apart from other Bond watches. It has a black dial whose textured surface is reminiscent of the grip of Bond’s trademark Walther PPK. It also features white Super-LumiNova on its indexes and hands; the words‘Quantum of Solace’ are laser-engraved on the inside of its sapphire crystal. The Omega name and logo and the Arabic numerals are applied on the dial. The blood red tip of the seconds hand and Seamaster logo present a stark contrast to the black dial. The watch consists of a limited edition of 5,007 pieces.
