Omega is a brand that we no longer present. If Swiss manufacturing is known for its collaboration with the Apollo 11 mission, during which Neil Armstrong and his team set foot on the lunar soil for the first time, he is also famous for his appearances in several works of the famous saga since James bond. A few months ago, we presented the model tribute to the 50th anniversary of the film. In the secret service of his majesty of the same deductible. This time it is an identical model to the Omega used by the famous secret agent in the opus. Die can wait.
There is much to say about this watch, as there are many details. So, let’s start at the beginning: the case. The latter, 42 mm wide, is designed in grade 2 titanium, a well known material that is approximately 25% lighter than steel. We found the manual helium valve at 10 o’clock, characteristic of this model. The case is completely brushed, which reinforces the military aspect of the watch. The unidirectional aluminum bezel shows, like the dial, a “tropical” brown very successful The diving scale is covered with a cream-colored SuperLuminova, which matches the indexes on the dial.
The back of the watch deserves equal attention. In fact, we found there engravings “0552” and “9237697” which refer respectively to the personnel codes of the French navy and the reference that indicates that it is a diving watch. The mention “007” naturally refers to the code name of the famous special agent Bond. The mention “62” is a nod to the year of production of the first part of the saga. Finally, “A” means that it is a screwed crown. All is water resistant to 300 meters, as the name suggests.
Like the bezel, the dial is dyed with a tropical brown then decorated with cream-colored indexes and inscriptions, which adds a vintage touch to the watch. The words “Seamaster” and the tip of the second hand are stained with the emblematic red of the famous manufacture. The indexes are elevated and surrounded by a hoop to match the hands. We find at 6 o’clock an arrow similar to the one engraved on the bottom of the box, characteristic of military watches. The set is crowned by a domed sapphire crystal.
For the movement, Omega maintains its standards to the highest. In fact, inside the clock beats the Caliber Omega 8806, a movement similar to those found in most of the Seamaster Diver 300M (including the James Bond model At the service of his majesty what we talked about recently). As in this model, this edition Die can wait enjoy the Master Chronometer Certification. To obtain it, the watch must meet very strict criteria of precision and antimagnetic resistance. Therefore, it is an automatic movement with a daily deviation of between 0 and +5 seconds and resistance to magnetic fields of up to 15,000 gauss. At rest, the clock will continue to run for approximately 55 hours. On the side of the bracelet, this edition (not limited) is available on a bracelet Milanese titanium links or in a NATO with dark brown, gray and beige stripes. Note that the titanium bracelet has an exclusive buckle system that facilitates size adjustment.
For this edition Die can waitOmega pays a majestic tribute to this famous work of the James Bond saga. a non-limited edition It is shown at a price of € 7,600 in NATO and € 8,600 in titanium bonds. The price is certainly high, but it is an exceptional, technical and extremely well made watch.

A true “must” for 007 fans!
