For the ninth time, Omega and James Bond – Britain’s most dashing and secret spy character – have teamed up to produce “the Bond watch” in conjunction with the franchise’s most recent installment, 2021’s No Time to Die. Opting for the professional 300M over either the Planet Ocean or the vintage-inspired 300, Omega has managed to blend unique elements of each Seamaster model to create a timepiece that honors sixty years of James Bond while compromising nothing in terms of functionality.
With sand-colored hour markers and SuperLumiNova on the hands, the “No Time to Die” Edition harkens to the earliest days of Bond, long before Omega was on the scene. Set against a black dial with red and white accents, the timepiece is an unmistakably military-inspired tool. With precision in abundance, the Omega caliber 8806 movement is METAS-certified, shielded against magnetic resistance, and offers 55 hours of power reserve. The case, bezel, and crowns are made from Grade 2 titanium making them lightweight and sturdy just like the tactical-grade gear used by 007 – a suggestion directly from Daniel Craig who’s depicted Bond on-screen for nearly 20 years.
Presented in an exclusive brown fabric pouch, the Omega 126.96.36.199.01.001 is featured on a striped NATO strap, completing the military motif. For the collector and adventurer alike, the “No Time to Die” edition pays tribute to the past while remaining ready for the future.
