Dress like 007: new James Bond watch lands in Harrods

The limited-edition Omega Seamaster, the most muscle-packed James Bond watch yet, is now on sale at Harrods, one month before the debut of the latest 007 saga Spectre.

New James Bond watch debuting in Sceptre: the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M

James Bond, the suave British spy and style icon, will be saving the world once again in Spectre - the new 007 film directed by Sam Mendes to be released in London on 26 October. As with every Bond saga, the films are a magnet for product placement, and fans around the world will be analysing every last detail of the famous spy’s gadgets and outfits, keeping a special eye on his cars and trusty timepiece. Eagle-eyed fans will once again discover that this year 007 is wearing an Omega watch from the Swiss brand that has been making James Bond watches since 1995. Limited to just 15,007 pieces and with a price tag of £4,630, the Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M watch is now available at Harrods - Britain’s landmark department store in Knightsbridge.

Daniel Craig magnificently incarnates Agent 007, taking us across exotic locations in Rome and Mexico City accompanied by his nemesis Christoph Waltz and a voluptuous Italian widow played by Monica Bellucci. Although Bond is not exactly the monogamous type, the spy’s 20-year affair with Omega watches is a clear sign of commitment. Ever since Pierce Brosnan strapped on an Omega in the film Golden Eye in 1995, the brand and the spy have been bedfellows in all his action-packed adventures.

The Seamaster Aqua Terra is the most muscle-packed James Bond watch of them all, providing resilience and reliability in its 41.5mm stainless steel case, which is immune to magnetic fields of up to 15,007 gauss (hence the limited edition figure) and depths of up to 150 metres. In addition to its robust mechanical Co-Axial calibre 8507 heart, the watch features the Bond family coat of arms both on the textured blue dial and on the tip of the yellow central seconds hand. The movement’s oscillating weight, which you can see on the caseback, has been skeletonised to resemble the shape of a gun barrel.

The Jewellery Editor is for sale

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
