You can’t really go wrong with one of the James Bond Omega watches – they’re all pretty decent – but this one is perhaps our favourite so far.
Released to celebrate the character's rank, as well as the 50th anniversary of You Only Live Twice, the 40th anniversary of The Spy Who Loved Me, and the 20th anniversary of Tomorrow Never Dies — all films in which Bond wears his official military uniform — comes the Seamaster Commander's Watch.
The design is a nod to the Royal Navy's ensign colors with a white ceramic dial, blue skeleton hour and minute hands, and a red second hand with 007 logo counterweight. The bezel is blue with a red area denoting the final 15 seconds, and the see-through case back reveals a rotor with the Commander rank insignia.
But perhaps best of all, it’s presented on a five-stripe blue, red, and gray NATO strap, (although a metal bracelet also included) and it’s the NATO strap that really works for Bond watches. And in context as a secret agent’s watch it makes much more sense, as well as looking very cool.
Limited to just 7,007 examples in stainless steel and seven in 18K yellow gold.
