There is a motto that says “There is nothing you can’t do in New York City” and this time we can really prove it ! On the magnificent NY Omega Boutique on 5th avenue, we had the pleasure to try the very last (the production was limited to 7,007 models and yes, it’s already sold all over the world) and extraordinary Omega Seamaster 300 “SPECTRE” Limited Edition. We were welcomed by the charming and gentle Store General Manager and her staff, who illustrated to us the legendary history and tradition of the OMEGA Seamaster 300, from the very beginning to the last “SPECTRE” limited edition model.

With the release of the 24th James Bond film SPECTRE, 007 returns with this iconic timepiece, updated with a new edge of innovation and attitude. This unique Seamaster 300, the actual model worn by James Bond in SPECTRE, comes in a robust stainless steel case with a sleek, black and grey striped NATO strap. Inside, the watch is powered by the OMEGA Master Co-Axial calibre 8400, a revolutionary movement that is resistant to magnetic fields up to 15,000 gauss.
Wearing the timepiece on the wrist is a truly emotional experience, its design is both powerful and elegant and makes you immediately feel a spy, ready to live amazing adventures as Mr. Bond, James Bond. It delivers a striking black dial along with a rare “lollipop” central seconds hand. Similar to the original Seamaster 300, the watch also includes a broad arrow hour hand and recessed triangular hour markers. The bi-directional rotating bezel is also black, this time made from polished ceramic. Combined with a LiquidMetal® 12 hour scale, time can be kept with any country in the world. The strap is simply breathtakingly beautiful, it is a 5-stripe black and grey NATO strap – otherwise known as the James Bond NATO Strap and on the bracelet’s strap holder, “007” has been engraved. It simply looks beautiful from every angle, extremely charming, elegant and sporty at the same time. We are pretty sure that the 7,006 owners that already bought it, will forever enjoy the very unique feelings that only a legendary and limited edition masterpiece as this can gives. Discover all the secrets of theOmega Seamaster 300 “SPECTRE” Limited Edition and if you want to have a chance to get the last one, hurry up and run at NY Omega Boutique on 5th avenue !
ps. thank you very much to the Store manager and her staff for the extraordinary kindness and professionalism.
