Omega launches special edition Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M watch for James Bond Skyfall

Daniel Craig’s James Bond stuck to an Omega wristwatch for the Skyfall movie, and the watch manufacturer duly rose to the occasion with a new commemorative timepiece.

There is only one commemorative watch being produced for the 23rd Bond movie, making it just that much more valuable and desirable. It is based on the black steel-on-steel 42 mm Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M that Bond wears in the film with, as Q would say, “modifications”. 

Now pay attention please: this Omega Seamaster is powered by OMEGA's new Co-Axial calibre 8507. The movement is visible through a transparent sapphire crystal ‘porthole’ set into the brushed screw-in caseback. On the self-winding rotor, etched in black, are the words ‘SKYFALL 007’. 

On the dial, at the 7 o’clock position, is the familiar 007 and gun logo and the agent’s number can also be found on the bracelet clasp. Just 5,007 of this unique Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M SKYFALL will be produced. 

Like every Omega 007 Limited Edition timepiece, this wristwatch embodies the rugged, classy and stylish characteristics that James Bond shares with OMEGA.

More news: the original of the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M that Bond wears in the film sold at auction last month for a stunning US$250,000, with the money going to the ORBIS charity.
