Let’s face it, once you catch the luxury dress watch bug, there’s no going back. There’s always one more watch your collection absolutely requires. In honor of everybody’s favorite, weird holiday, here are some of our favorites to run up the flagpole on Flag Day!

🇬🇧 OMEGA Seamaster 300M James Bond 007 “No Time to Die” Edition


The OMEGA Seamaster collection is a nod to the past, launched to celebrate the 100th anniversary of OMEGA in 1948, using the watches of the British military as inspiration; to the present, as the timepiece of choice when James Bond is dressing to kill; and to the future, with cutting edge dive watch technology 🇬🇧 Crafted of lightweight yet strong titanium, the case of this James Bond 007 “No Time to Die” edition features a brown tropical aluminum bezel, screw-in crown, and unidirectional rotating bezel, with a rich brown dial and functional yet vintage patina SuperLumiNova on the hands and dial. Of special interest to diving enthusiasts, this watch is METAS-certified, water resistant to 300 meters, with anti-magnetic and helium escape valve complications, and a 55-hour power reserve. Perfectly finished with a mesh titanium strap.
