OMEGA SEAMASTER: 007 DANIEL CRAIG AND THE ‘SPECTRE’ WATCH
007 himself, Daniel Craig paid a visit to the Omega watch factory in Villeret, Switzerland to witness production of the limited edition Omega Seamaster 300 ‘Spectre’ watch that he wears in the upcoming chapter of the James Bond saga.
The Seamaster has been the official James Bond watch since the release of ‘Goldeneye’ back in 1995 and this is also the first time a watch that features in the blockbusting movies series will be made available to the general public for retail sale.
The exquisite quality and precision of Omega watches clearly impressed Craig who remarked, “I think it was so impressive that these watches are made from the ground up.”
The official watch of Britain’s Royal Flying Corps in 1917, Omega also made history in 1999, with the development of Calibre 2500, he first mass produced watch to incorporate coaxial escapement delivering pin point accuracy.
