Here's what you need to know about the Omega watch that'll be strapped to the wrist of 007 in the upcoming James Bond film, No Time To Die

Omega's unveiling of the Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition has got us even more excited for the upcoming release of No Time To Die, the latest James Bond film that’s set to hit cinemas this week on September 30. 

The first trailer was released in December last year (keep scrolling to watch it for yourself…) and sees the lead MI6 agent played, of course, by Daniel Craig delivering an ominous warning: “History isn’t kind to men who play god.” Thanks for the heads up, Double-O.

Bond has worn an Omega since 2006 when, in Casino Royale, his soon-to-be-girlfriend Vesper asks about his choice of wrist candy. "Rolex?" She inquires. "Omega," he replies.

The new non-limited Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition is the latest in an Omega collection that dates back to 1993. It will be available from February with a titanium mesh bracelet, or a striped NATO strap in dark brown, grey and beige with 007 engraved on the loop.

Based on Craig's recommendations, the 42mm case boasts a vintage aesthetic thanks to the colouring of its strong and lightweight Grade 2 Titanium dial and bezel. “When working with Omega, we decided that a lightweight watch would be key of a military man like 007,” says Craig about his latest accessory.

“I also suggested some vintage touches and colours to give the watch a unique edge. The final piece looks incredible.”

The domed sapphire-crystal glass creates a slightly slimmer watch than the standard Seamaster Diver 300M models, which have long been the watch of choice for underwater explorers (as well as undercover super-spies).
