In anticipation of the release of the 24th James Bond film 'Spectre' scheduled to open later this year, Omega has created a limited edition Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M model inspired by the Bond family coat of arms. This new Omega just unveiled at Baselworld 2015 over a week ago. The dial, in the most interesting hue of midnight blue, features the coat of arms repeatedly interlocking to create a dynamic pattern on the watch’s blue dial. The coat of arms is also found near the tip of the yellow central seconds hand and a yellow minute track completes the amazing look of this new timepiece. Powered by the completely new Omega Master Co-Axial calibre 8507, this timepiece is resistant to magnetic fields of 15,000 gauss —however the brand played with the 007 number and added it to the gauss rating on the dial as 15,007. The Bond coat of arms is also present on the box accompanying the watch as well as a loupe and an additional blue nylon strap with yellow contrast stitching and deployant buckle.
Among the most striking elements of this 41.5 mm stainless steel timepiece is the oscillating weight of the movement visible through the sapphire crystal case back. This component has been cut and shaped to resemble a gun barrel, a design feature associated with James Bond.
The timepiece is presented on a stainless steel bracelet and will be produced in a limited edition of 15,007 pieces — which we think is a little too high for a limited edition watch. On the wrist, the watch wears true to its size and quite nicely. The blue dial is a true chameleon that changes hues depending on the angle at which light hits it.
