To commemorate it’s 20 year collaboration with Omega Seamaster’s partnership and James Bond Franchise, Omega has uncover their latest Bond piece – The James Bond Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra, Limited Edition 007 Spectre. It took its’ inspiration from the previous Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M Master Co-Axial 15,000 Gauss which was seen on Skyfall (2012).
James Bond Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra – 007 Spectre
For the latest Seamaster Aqua Terra adventure, it seems like magnetic fields is an important factor (we could only guess that James Bond is going on a secret mission in and area with strong magnetic field). Let’s take a first look at the James Bond Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra, 007 Spectre Limited Edition.
James Bond Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra – Limited Edition 007 Spectre, 15,007 Gauss Watch
Coming from the Bond Seamasters family, it has similar beautiful dark stale blue dial of the Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M. The Limited edition 007 Epectre 15,700 Guass watch dial also has the distinct colours as well as the use of the James Bond family coat-of-arms. At first glance, you will notice the 007 Spectre Aqua Terra’s contrasting yellow minute track and second hand. Unlike the Aqua Terra 15,000 gauss, these are solid yellow, not striped. Apart from these, another major difference on the dial is the 15,000 gauss logo which has the 007 logo fused wittily into it at the same time.
If you have realized by now, the 15,007 suggests that 007 Spectre Seamaster Aqua Terra is limited to only 15,007 pieces. Although this quantity seems like alot for a limited edition watch, the James Bond watch series is still very much in demand. So don’t be surprised if the watch is out of stock not long after it’s launch.
James Bond Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra – Watch Details
The James Bond Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra has a diameter of 41.5mm and has a 150 meter water resistance. Just like the previous model, it has a gun barrel and with the caliber 8507 movement. Unmistakably a James Bond design feature. One thing to note that unlike the original seamaster 300, this is not a dive watch as it does not have the rotating bezel feature.
Looking at the Aqua Terra Limited Edition case back, you will see the beautiful display case back with the word James Bond in the middle. Wait, you might be wondering now, where is the soft iron cage / Iron sheild (a technology Milgauss Rolex 116400GV & Rolex Milgauss Z Blue Dial 116400GV is using to protect against magnetic fields of up to 1,000 Gauss) if the caseback is transparent? Well, here is the answer.
Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra – Anti-magnetic movement
Instead of using an iron case back to protect against magnetic disturbance, non-magnetic silicon balance spring (Si14) is used. The pivots and staffs in the imporved calibres are made of Nivagauss, and the steel plates found in the Co-Axil movement have been replace with non-magnetic plates. Further details included an an-amorphous material is used for the spring of the shock absorber. At least two other unnamed non-magnetic metals or other materials are used in the movement.
What is the commotion about anti-maganetic you may ask? Magnetism can completely screw up the accuracy of the movement and thus, will cause an inaccurate time. Technical specs apart, this ‘space-age feel’ technology just gives the James Bond Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra a better fit to the perfect spy image. This anti-magnetic movement will be deployed to all in-house made Omega movement by 2017.
