Skyfall once again finds James Bond in the company of old friends and, in the case of his watch, the camaraderie continues with OMEGA. As well as releasing a special edition of its 300M Seamaster to celebrate 50 years of Bond, OMEGA is proud to unveil the new 600M limited-edition Seamaster, as featured in the film.
The Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M 'Skyfall' limited edition is the sort of timepiece that feels right at home in the derring-do world of Bond. Be it the deep-sea dives in Thunderball or the Venetian waters of Casino Royale, this watch is water-resistant up to 600m (a mighty 2,000ft). The 42mm brushed and polished stainless-steel case bears all the build and quality we love about the Seamaster, fitted with a unidirectional rotating diving bezel and a helium escape valve. The diver's clasp is engraved with "007", whilst the 7 on the dial also features the iconic logo. The watch is also equipped with a "Si14" silicon balance spring and is powered by OMEGA's exclusive new Co-Axial calibre 8507.
What is so striking about this particular Seamaster isn't merely the presence of James Bond. The sleek, black-ceramic ring of the bezel and the structured, matt black dial give the watch its masculine edge, with little details, such as the facetted, rhodium-plated hands, adding character.
Skyfall is released in the UK on 26 October (16 November in the US). Once it has made its on-screen debut, the Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M Skyfall will be available in a limited series of 5,007 pieces only.
