Inspired by Bond’s rank and regalia, OMEGA has created the “Commander’s Watch” powered by the exclusive OMEGA Calibre 2507.
Here is a watch that salutes an evergreen source of inspiration: Bond. The Seamaster Diver 300m “Commander’s Watch” Limited Edition is indeed inspired by Bond’s rank and regalia. The secret agent has always been connected with the best of gadgetry over the years. It should come as no surprise that James Bond still lives in public consciousness and when it comes to toys for boys….well, we have a theme that never fails to impress!
2017 is a year that marks a Bond Milestone. It is the 50th anniversary of You Only Live Twice, the 40th of The Spy Who Loved Me and the 20th of Tomorrow Never Dies. Is this not reason enough? In all these movies Bond was ‘Commander Bond’ and also sported military outfits. OMEGA also has a rich history of military watches. Talk about worlds coming together!
It also is a nod to the ensign colours of the British Royal Navy. It thus has touches of white, blue and red found throughout the watch. Besides the symbolic significance of the colours, it also creates a polished and elegant look.
The “Commander’s Watch” bears a stainless steel case. The dial is an elegant one in polished white ceramic, which bears facetted blued skeleton hour-minute hands and varnished red second hand with the “007” gun logo counterweight- a clear Bond inspiration!
The screw-in caseback is also interesting to look at. It features a wave-pattern engraved with Commander’s Watch, Limited Edition and the limited edition number. The see-through caseback reveals a rotor with 9mm bullet and decorative plate bearing the 007 and OMEGA logo, as well as the Calibre number, OMEGA Calibre 2507. It is presented on a 5-stripe blue, red and grey polyamide Nato Strap.
The Commander’s watch is limited to 7,007 pieces.
