Review Of James Bond 007 50th Anniversary Collector’s Piece Replica Watches Online Safe
To celebrate fifty years of James Bond films, Omega is releasing a special update of the popular Seamaster Diver 300m James Bond watch which has been worn by 007 in every adventure since GoldenEye. The James Bond 007 50th Anniversary Collector’s Piece has been created in two sizes, 41 mm and 36.25 mm. Find wallpaper images inside.
The lacquered black dial features a 007 monogram. The 41 mm version has 11 applied indexes; the 36.35 mm watch has ten with a diamond index at the 7 o’clock position. The indexes are coated with white Super-LumiNova with a blue emission, for easy reading in all light conditions.
For much less money, the latest TAG Heuer Aquaracers arrive in similar colours and sizes (41mm), 300M water resistance, ceramic bezel, and a sporty, modern design originating in the same age as the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M. They feature off-the-shelf ETA moves and are US$2,550 onto a steel bracelet (US$2,400 on the nylon straps). It is interesting to observe how there’s a $2,000 delta here, both above and below the $4k cost of this Seamaster, even if none is able to represent a fantastic analog.The Tissot Seastar 1000 Powermatic 80 provides you with a similar set of specs, modern vibe (note the skeletonized hands), plus a great deal of value for considerably less cash at US$995 to a steel bracelet (or $20 less on a strap). Its Powermatic 80 is an ETA CO7.111 movement, which in turn is an ETA 2824, we believe, modified to offer 80 hours of power reserve with a 3Hz frequency.Finally, there’s, of course, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual (hands-on article here, and you can get the link to the price of Entry article above) that is Rolex’s entry-level piece at $5,700 for your 39mm version. Having a different style and features, the Rolex’s $1,300 premium over the Seamaster 300M’s asking price is more than ample, but as was the case when comparing the Panerai PAM000 Base Logo, this might very well be a psychological choice between the two.It may be argued that a brand is just as good as its most basic offering. Although this price of Entry series might also be practical for aspirational consumers primarily interested in the prestige of a title, I believe that a lot of insight about a watch brand can be obtained by inspecting its most basic or reasonably priced item. This exercise really concretely establishes a numerical baseline for your brand’s price range and just what you buy for this price – and the way I see it, that sets a context for the whole brand. Any brand’s entry-level piece should at least reflect the manufacturer’s values and quality standards, or even also its representative layout DNA. In Omega’s case, their entry-level offerings score quite high in those respects.
The cases are stainless steel and with unidirectional ceramic bezel with diving scales in matte chromium nitride. The red number “50” signifies the special 007 anniversary. A helium escape valve allows helium atoms to escape during decompression, particularly necessary for professional divers operating from diving bells. As its name suggests, the watch is water resistant up to 300 meters.
Each version of the watch is presented on a classic brushed and polished Omega-patented screw-and-pin stainless steel bracelet.
Both versions feature Omega’s caliber 2507 self-winding movement with co-axial escapement.
The watch is a certified chronometer. Its screw-in case back is stamped with a gun-barrel design. A “bullet” decoration on the rotor can be viewed through the sapphire crystal display back.
The 41 mm version is being produced in a limited edition of 11,007 pieces and the 36.25 mm version in a limited edition of 3,007 pieces.
Later this year, EON Productions will release Skyfall, the 23rd film in the 007 franchise, with Daniel Craig in the role of James Bond.
