James Bond’s Omega Watches

Vesper Lynd: [glances at Bond’s wrist] Rolex?
James Bond: Omega.
Vesper Lynd: Beautiful.”
 – Casino Royale, 2006
 <br>
Throughout the history of the James Bond franchise, the watches on 007’s wrist have been as varied as the “Bond girls” on his side. But that all changed with 1995’s Goldeneye. Bond has been wearing the Omega Seamaster since then, and with a 20-year long partnership, there seems to be no looking back.
 <br>
Here’s a look at all the Omega watches that have graced the wrist of Bond, James Bond:
 <br>
 <br>
Seamaster 300
 <br>
Omega Seamaster 300M Professional on Pierce Brosnan
As seen in: GoldenEye (1995), Tomorrow Never Dies (1997), The World Is Not Enough (1999), Die Another Day (2002)
 <br>
In 1995, Omega won the bid to be the official watch of Agent 007. The suave and sophisticated new James Bond, played by Pierce Brosnan, was the first to strap on an Omega – and they chose a professionally-oriented diver.
 <br>
Brosnan first donned the quartz edition ref 2541.80 in GoldenEye, followed by the automatic and chronometer rated ref 2531.80 in the next three films.

Planet Ocean XL
 <br>
Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M 45mm on Daniel Craig
As seen in: Casino Royale (2006)
 <br>
The next decade saw a rougher, more modern James Bond in Daniel Craig. He still dons the emblematic blue Omega Seamaster Professional in this movie, but it’s alternated with an Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M worn on a black rubber strap. The watch proves pivotal in the movie as it helps save him from underwater trouble.

Aqua Terra

As seen in: Skyfall (2012)
 <br>
As in Casino Royale, two watches were used in Skyfall. One of them was the Aqua Terra, which was a surprising choice, given that it is simpler yet dressier than the tool watches he used to wear. He wore a nautical-inspired striped blue dial model, with a matching a steel bracelet.
 <br>
Planet Ocean 42
 <br>
Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M 42mm on Daniel Craig
As seen in: Quantum of Solace (2008), Skyfall (2012)
 <br>
Daniel Craig sported yet another Planet Ocean model for Quantum of Solace and Skyfall, but for both movies, he wore a smaller 42mm case on a steel bracelet.
 <br>
For the first movie, he wore ref 2201.50 with a metallic bezel. For Skyfall, Omega released a limited edition Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 007 Skyfall Watch – basically a special version of the previous model, outfitted with a matte black ceramic bezel, and 007 marker on the 7th hour.
 <br>
 <br>
Omega Seamaster 300 Spectre LE on Daniel Craig
As seen in: Spectre (2015)
 <br>
For the latest bond movie, Spectre, the Omega watch came back in a really big way – not only did they create a specific limited-edition watch for the movie, it also returned to becoming a gadget-watch, after having no particular role in the previous 3 movies.
 <br>
The Seamaster 300 Spectre LE features a vintage-military inspired look with its patinated indexes and NATO strap. It featured a countdown and a bomb that helped Bond save the day once again.

The 25th Bond film is slated for release in 2019. It’s Daniel Craig’s fifth and final performance as the 007 agent – and we’re just as psyched as you are to see what he’ll wear on his wrist.
