Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M SKYFALL Limited Edition
It’s becoming a decent habbit from Omega, delivering a restricted version Seamaster. While past James Bond L.E. models depended on the Semaster Professional, this is the third restricted version Seamaster Planet Ocean (and the first in 42 mm size) for a James Bond movie.
Skyfall will be the 23rd James Bond film and will be delivered in fall 2012. Also, again 007 will again wear an Omega Seamaster. This time the 42 mm adaptation Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m will be the restricted version for Skyfall.
This is as of now the second restricted version that Omega delivers this year. In January this year, they already delivered a restricted release Seamaster Professional for the 50th commemoration of James Bond ( our companions of Hodinkee distributed the news ). That one was “limited” to 11,007 pieces! Furthermore, that seems like typical for the Omega Seamaster restricted versions. Past variants were restricted to 10,007 pieces. By and by I think it’s great that Omega diminished the impediment to “just” 5,007 pieces for the Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m Skyfall L.E.
This Seamaster Planet Ocean is furnished with a unidirectional turning plunging bezel and a helium get away from valve and is water impervious to 600 meters/2000 feet.
The watch has a 42 mm hardened steel case with brushed and cleaned finish. This is the very completion that I enjoyed such a huge amount on the Seamaster Chronograph that I inspected for you . It likewise includes the same screw-and-pin arm band, albeit the jumpers’ fasten is now engraved with “007”. The diving bezel is an artistic ring with a matt dark completion and silver indices.
The matte dark dial has a checkered or block shape construction and highlights applied lists, which are covered with white Super-Luminova that emits blue light! How cool is that. The hour and seconds hands additionally emanate blue light in obscurity, while the moment hand radiates green light, as does the speck on the plunging bezel. As indicated by Omega this makes it simpler for jumpers, to monitor their time initially. The 7 o’clock marker has been supplanted by a 007 logo!
Inside ticks Omega’s new Co-Axial type 8507, with a SKYFALL 007 etching on the rotor, that can be seen through sapphire gem in the brushed screw-in caseback. The new type is furnished with a Si14 silicon balance spring, that I clarified here together with the co-hub escapement .
Omega has full confidence in the new developments with co-hub escapement and silican equilibrium and they give four years of warranty on the watch. All 5,007 pieces are conveyed in an extraordinary introduction box. Gee; intriguing! The cost is € 4760 Euro including taxes.
