Why does everyone think James Bond is cool? Actually, Mr. Bond is currently wearing the exact watch I am wearing today. I think I'm as cool as Bond. More specifically, it's the Omega Seamaster Diver 300m 007 Edition. It's the same watch Daniel Craig is wearing in the upcoming James Bond movie, and it gives the watch a military feel that I like. Yes, I like it. I like tool replica watches that aren't overly rugged, can be worn in almost any setting, and definitely fit the description.
The brown loom matches the brushed black dial perfectly, and the red Seamaster hands at the seconds hand match everything very nicely. The tropical brown color also suits the darker titanium case. More on that later. I also like the wide arrow above the six o'clock position, which adds to the military vibe. It really is a tool. The date function is handy, but I think the dial would be more balanced without it. Omega has overlooked this model and is grateful for that. Yes, the style is great. The Omega Seamaster case is stainless steel, but not the 007 version. It is made of secondary titanium and I have to say, I like it. At first I was worried because I could easily hear titanium scratches and I thought the light weight would give it a cheap feel. Quite the opposite, the lightness makes it feel extremely comfortable. It feels like nothing, but it's also not as heavy as my stainless steel replica watches. It's ideal for a tool watch. Not only is titanium lighter than stainless steel, but it tends to get darker. Again, I didn't think I'd d like this, but I don't think the lighter shade of gray in stainless steel would match well with a tropical dial. The classic dark case definitely matches the classic tropical dial. The back cover is not visible, but there is something cool about it. The numbers on the back are designed to look like the numbers you would see on a military watch. This is cool and again adds to the military vibe. As the name implies, the watch is rated water resistant to 300 meters. I don't dive, so I think the rating is sufficient. But no matter where or how I wear it, 300 meters of water resistance definitely gives me a great sense of security.
The case is 42mm in diameter. This is probably the largest case size I have, and fits my seventh and quarter inch wrists perfectly. The case is 13.15mm thick, which is a little thinner than a regular replica Seamaster. A little thinner is always better for me, so it's an excellent choice for the Omega. The lugs are 22mm wide, which is pretty standard, so you won't have any problems finding a replacement strap. But why? The replica Seamaster 007 version has a mesh secondary titanium bracelet, and I've never worn anything like it. The dark gray color is very classic, very lightweight and very comfortable. It picks the socks off my other watch bracelets. You can also purchase this watch on NATO. But as you may already know, I'm not a big fan of the NATO strap. So I really like the bracelet, but the buckle is just as good. The deployant buckle feels solid and is very easy to adjust. No special tools are needed to make these replica watches fit your wrist. All you need is a finger or fingernail and you're good to go. I haven't had any major problems with Omega's 8806 internal movement powering a Swiss watch. Not only is it cost certified, but it is also certified as a master chronometer. Chronometer certification is tested by the Federal Institute of Metrology (also known as Metas). Not sure how they got Metas, but oh well. In any case, the Master Chronometers is set at zero to five seconds per day. It also has a 55-hour power reserve and can resist magnetic forces of up to 15,000 gauss very well, which is great because these new iPhone 12s have MagSafe magnets inside. Beware watch lovers. The sad part is that I can't see the movement. But, like I said before, the back cover has some nice military overtones.
Omega is one of the most popular and sought after watch brands in the world. James Bond, one of the world's most popular movie characters, has been wearing replica Seamaster watches for the last 25 years or the last 9 Bond movies. There is no better legacy than that. People will always adore any watch worn by James Bond. The other thing I want to discuss is the price. It retails for $9,200, which is $4,000 more than the regular stainless steel version. That's a lot of money, but I think it's worth it. It's much cooler than the stainless steel model, and it oozes the vibration of a tool watch while being versatile enough to be worn with a suit or an evening gown. I mean, Bond did it. Would the extra $4,000 be worth it to you? It depends on how much you think it costs to operate, it's up to you. The only and very few complaints I have about this watch is the unit directional bezel. Some may complain that the bezel is aluminum instead of ceramic, but that doesn't bother me in the least. What does bother me a bit is that it's not that easy to grip and doesn't have that powerful click or sound when it spins. My back B58 spins up much more satisfactorily. Now it's not cheap, and I don't doubt its reliability, but it's just, I don't know, maybe because I feel so used to the black B58 that anything else feels right to me. Nonetheless, it's a long way from sealing the deal. I guess James Bond is great. His movies have been a huge success for almost 60 years, so he's an icon for shouting out loud. Guys want to be with him, girls want to be with him. That brings me to this watch. I'm sure a lot of people like it just because Bond is wearing it. It's nice. But in my opinion, this watch is cool because on its own merits, it's actually really cool. If Bond didn't exist, that watch would still be cool. Yes, you can say it wouldn't exist without Bond, but you know what I mean. It is, by far, the best looking Bond watch from replica Seamaster and, in my opinion, one of the best replica watches from the modern Omega period.
