Celebrating the new James Bond film:the Seamaster Planet Ocean
600M”SKYFALL” Limited Edition
In SKYFALL, to be released in autumn of 2012, James Bond
will take to the screen for the 23rd time with Daniel Craig again assuming
the role of the world’s favourite secret agent. And once again, 007 will
wear an OMEGA Seamaster.
To celebrate its seventh performance in a supporting role in a Bond
film, OMEGA is launching the Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M”SKYFALL”
Limited Edition watch.
Like every Planet Ocean, the new watch is ready for underwater adventure.
Equipped with a unidirectional rotating diving bezel and a helium escape
valve, the watch is water resistant 60 bar / 600 metres / 2000 feet.
The watch has a 42 mm brushed and polished stainless steel case and a
matching patented screw-and-pin bracelet whose divers’ clasp is engraved
with “007”. The rotating diving bezel is distinguished by its matt
black ceramic ring with a chromium nitride diving scale.
The applied indexes on the matt structured black dial are coated with
white Super-LumiNova emitting a blue light as are the polished, facetted
rhodium-plated hands. The exception is the minute hand which emits a green
light, as does the dot on the diving bezel. This feature makes it easy for
divers to keep track of their time at a glance. At the 7 o’clock
position is a 007 logo and at 3 o’clock, there is a date window.
The Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M SKYFALL Limited Edition is powered by
OMEGA's exclusive new Co-Axial calibre 8507. SKYFALL 007 is on its rotor
in black-varnished engraving. The movement is visible through sapphire
crystal in the brushed screw-in caseback.
Along with OMEGA’s industry-changing Co-Axial technology, the watch is
equipped with an "Si14" silicon balance spring. The combination
is so stable and reliable that the Planet Ocean comes with a full
The Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M SKYFALL wristwatch is being produced in an
edition limited to 5,007 pieces and is delivered in a special presentation
|Bond Girl Bérénice
Marlohe is the Newest Omega’s Ambassador
The renowned Swiss watchmaker that has built the reputation of
favorite James Bond’s watch brand appointed a French actress, Bérénice
Marlohe, as the newest brand ambassador. The Eurasian beauty plays
glamorous and enigmatic Severin in the 23rd Bond film Skyfall,
alongside with Daniel Craig who has already deserved the place in the
first line of Omega’s ambassadors, by promoting the brand’s watches in
his roles of the world’s most famous secret agent.

This year, Omega
has marked 50 years since the first movie about stylish spy by releasing
Edition of the Seamaster Professional James Bond 50th
Bond Girl Bérénice Marlohe is the Newest Omega’s Ambassador review
was published on Watchalyzer on June 18, 2012
|Bérénice Marlohe was promoted as the brand’s latest
ambassador at the opening of the new Omega’s boutique in Venice. The
French actress was speaking about the most important acting role in her
carrier, rather than about her new role in the Omega’s family. Thus, we
still do not know which models Bérénice Marlohe will promote. Since her
partner in the movie Skyfall, Daniel Craig, wears the Seamaster
Planet Ocean 600m in each of his three Bond movies (read the
reviews of the new
James Bond’s Seamaster Planet Ocean Skyfall watch and Omega Bond 007
Watches), it would not be a surprise seeing glamorous Bérénice
with some of luxurious sporty watches from the Ladies’
Bérénice Marlohe in Venice for Omega Boutique Opening
This is not the first time that the Bond girl is connected with the famous
Swiss brand. Caterina Murino showed up in Casino Royale with a
blue Omega’s model, while Olga Kurylenko formally promoted the Seamaster
Planet Ocean James Bond Watch that Daniel Craig wore in Quantum of
Solace. Since these are men’s timepieces, it would be nice to see
the first ladies’ Omega in a Bond film.
Bérénice Marlohe in Venice
Speaking about her role of Séverine in the James Bond film to be
released in November, Bérénice said that she had been described by
writers and director as glamorous and enigmatic. “For me, enigmatic is
very important because I wanted to create a character that couldn’t be
stereotyped. It should not be obvious immediately what kind of person she
is”, said Ms Marlohe. “Daniel Craig has added something special with
James Bond – he’s both tough and vulnerable and it’s not always
clear what he’s thinking. I want to do the same thing with Séverine –
she’s not just on the screen to be saved by Bond.”
||2012 marks the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film
series. To celebrate, it looks like Omega is releasing a special edition
James Bond 50th anniversary watch (despite the fact that fifty years ago,
Bond was not wearing an Omega at all).
The watch is in the Seamaster series, uses a "007" theme on
the black lacquer dial with "50" filled in with red on the outer
bezel, and uses Omega's caliber 2507 co-axial movement. The winding rotor
looks like a bullet and is inscribed with "50 years of James
Bond." The Omega Seamaster Limited Edition James Bond 50th
Anniversary watch is sized at 41mm and will be available some time early
Oh, and just how limited will this limited edition be? Omega will be
making 11,007 of them, which is, to give you some context, roughly 2.5
times the yearly production of A. Lange & Sohne, worldwide.
Editor's Note: It should be stated that this information did
not come from Omega directly, but from a UK-based authorized dealer called Banks
Lyon. Since publishing this post, Banks Lyon has removed the listing from their
