The very watch that Mr.Bond himself will be sporting in the new Sky Fall Film that will be released in only three weeks. The watch has been developed in order to celebrate the brands seventh performance in a supporting role in a Bond film. The Planet Ocean 600M SKYFALL Limited Edition is a celebration and a half.
Like every Planet Ocean, the new watch is for underwater ready. Equipped with a unidirectional rotating diving bezel and a helium escape valve, it is water resistant 600 metres / 2000 feet / 60 bar.
This beautiful 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”. SKYFALL 007 is also on its rotor in black-varnished engraving. The movement is visible through sapphire crystal in the brushed screw-in caseback.
It is powered by OMEGA’s exclusive new Co-Axial calibre 8507. The basic of this system simply means it will have greater mechanical efficiency, which ensures more stable precision. The design also improves shock resistance and avoids the disturbances caused by touching the hairspring. Other features that this system includes are longer service intervals, an outstanding chronometric performance, which will be maintained over a longer period of time and three-year warranty. However along with this 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 actually comes with a full four-year warranty.
OMEGA’s Co-Axial calibres are the best series-produced mechanical watch movements in the world.
The matt structured black dial is designed to be reminiscent an iconic English sports car. Its applied indexes 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. This feature makes it easy for divers to keep track of their time at a glance. The 007 logo at the 7 o’clock position makes a bold statement about the watch’s lineage. At 3 o’clock, there is a date window.
The Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M SKYFALL wristwatch has been produced in an edition limited to 5,007 pieces and is delivered in a special presentation box.
Online you can see various videos concerning the technology and this particular watch.
I’d like to give a cheaper option to this watch, however.. nothing else could possibly be quite in this league.
