Omega’s 60 years of James Bond Watch is a ‘expensive’

Omega, known for iconic timepieces from the fan-favorite James Bond franchise, releases a pair of Seamaster Diver 300 M watches, but it might not be affordable for all 007 fans.

What Happened: Celebrating the 60th anniversary of the 007 franchise, Omega has unveiled the standard version of the Omega Seamaster Diver 300 M 60 Years Of James Bond watch and the Canopus Gold edition, according to Gizmodo.

The standard version is not exactly a recreation that Pierce Brosnan wore in the 1995 film GoldenEye, but an amalgam of several Bond films. The watch has the number 60 at the top of the dial, a feature that reminds fans of the Bond franchise.

The case back feature of the watch is a sapphire glass window without any LCD or OLED screens. The product is a mechanical timepiece.

How do I Invest In Watches?

The Gold edition has a case and bracelet made from Omega's 18 k Canopus Gold alloy, along with green and yellow diamonds surrounding the dial. Bond author Ian Fleming built a private estate in Jamaica, where the dial design pays tribute to the Jamaican flag colors.

Why It is Important: While the iconic recreations have fun elements with a subtle execution, they are extremely extravagant to be affordable for most Bond fans.

The Seamaster Diver 300 M 60 Years Of James Bond might be out of the budget, but it is still cheaper than the Gold Edition.

If Bond fans want to get their hands on the Gold Timepiece, they need to pay $140,000.
