Omega Seamaster Diver 300M «James Bond», ahora en platino y edición numerada.

Omega lanza una nueva referencia de su Seamaster Diver 300M «James Bond» presentado el pasado 2019 cuyas diferencias, respecto de la edición limitada a 7.007 ejemplares, debemos buscar, principalmente, en la combinación de los materiales. Otro aspecto importante a tener en cuenta es que la manufactura nos habla de Edición Numerada, lo cual no implica que responda a una producción limitada de este nuevo reloj. Manteniendo el diámetro original de 42 mm, la caja de este Seamaster Diver 300M «James Bond» toma una combinación de platino y oro blanco en…

Just Because: Appreciating A 34mm Omega Seamaster

The watch is a reference 2802 and the movement is the 20-jewel Omega caliber 471. The 471 movement underwent a few variations in its time. This particular version of the movement is antimagnetic and shock-resistant, with a power reserve of upwards of 40 hours. It is 25mm in diameter, with a height of 5.5mm and beats away at 2.75 Hz. During my visit with Ed the watchmaker, I got a chance to look at the movement for quite some time. For a 63-year-old watch, this thing really moves, and it’s a looker to boot, with the rotor proudly engraved The Omega Watch Co. Swiss. All of the pertinent information about the watch was located on the underside of the caseback. Included in this information is text that instructs you to “Fit Washer To Back”, in German, French, English, and Spanish. They don’t want you putting the caseback anywhere other than the back of the case. Neither I, nor Ed, had any issue with that instruction.
