Omega Planet Ocean James Bond “SkyFall” Watch
James Bond Is Back With New Omega “SkyFall” Watch
The new James Bond movie, “SKYFALL” starring Daniel Craig, hits the big screen in the fall of 2012. I can’t wait to see Commander Bond in action again, but I will most likely have to wait until November at least. But, we can get a preview of another Bond star now, the Omega Planet Ocean James Bond “SkyFall” Edition watch. Daniel Craig as James Bond is my favorite 007 since Sean Connery, and the Seamaster Planet Ocean is one of my favorite watches. Every Bond Edition Omega watch seems to get better each year. The Omega “SkyFall” is a beautiful but practical time piece, has the signature 007 accent, and is as tough and strong as Bond himself.
The SKYFALL Edition of the Planet Ocean has a 42mm brushed and polished steel case complete with matching bracelet. Although the dial is matte black, the horizontal lines etched into it combined with the contrasting touches of red and white give it a sense of depth that is visually quite attractive. The white Super-LumiNova emits a light blue glow in the dark, and has been applied to all indices on the dial, along with the hands. As a subtle point of distinction however the minute hand and the dot on the diving bezel glow green.
The James Bond 007 touch of this special edition timepiece is the trademark ‘007’ logo at 7 o’clock. On the back of the watch is a black-varnished engraving of the ‘SKYFALL 007’ logo on the rotor of the automatic Omega co-axial Caliber 8507 movement. As is standard on all Planet Oceans, the SKYFALL edition also features a helium escape valve and is rated to 600m of water resistance.
Bond fans will be happy to hear that 5,007 of these special watches will be offered by Omega.. Sure hope I am one of the lucky Bond fans who gets one. The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean “SKYFALL” Edition is a great looking watch with a top-quality movement.
