After the first filming in Jamaica, the production of the highly awaited Bond 25 continues in London. In the new chapter dedicated to Agent 007 directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga we find the main character returning after allowing himself a rest in Jamaica, interrupted when an American agent, Felix, asks him for help to save a scientist kidnapped by a dangerous villain – interpreted by Rami Malek – in possession of a new lethal technology.
In the latest images shared by the official account of the film, you see Daniel Craig in a splendid shape on the London streets despite the ankle injury sustained on the set that required surgery.
Coming back from a good retreat in Jamaica, Agent 007 returned to the capital of the United Kingdom where he was captured at the wheel of a superb Aston Martin, the same driven by Timothy Dalton in the film “The Living Daylights”, with a V8 engine.
In addition to noticing the beautiful Prince of Wales’ dress made by US designer Tom Ford, our eyes could not help but analyse the watch Bond will wear in the new film.
And here is the new OMEGA Seamaster300 making its way from the cuff of the shirt in a brand new version with cream-colored indexes, as well as the graduated scale on the ring. In addition, we can see the “mesh” or Milanese bracelet for the first time installed on the Seamaster300 model.
In production since 1993 the Seamaster Diver 300M has recently celebrated its 25th anniversary. For the occasion, the watch has been redesigned and improved in every aspect: design, high quality materials and new manufacturing movement.
The Omega Seamaster Diver 300M, the faithful companion of 007
The Omega Seamaster300 made its first appearance on the wrist of James Bond – played by Pierce Brosnan – in 1995 on the film Golden Eye.
This partnership, the one between OMEGA and Agent 007, immediately created great interest from the public and the media. Lindy Hemming, the Oscar-winning costume designer, explained the reason for choosing a Seamaster for Golden Eye: “I chose the OMEGA Seamaster blue dial because I thought Commander Bond, a marine man, diver, discreet gentleman and a man of world, would wear this watch rather than what everyone expected …. ”
Since then the Seamaster300 is Agent 007’s faithful companion on his adventures and will appear on the wrist of Pierce Brosnan three more times, during the filming of TOMORROW NEVER DIES (1997) , THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH (1999),DIE ANOTHER DAY (2002)
The return to the set with Daniel Craig
The Seamaster Diver 300 returns in 2006 with Casino Royale on the wrist of the ‘new’ Bond starring Daniel Craig, who will alternate on the set with another OMEGA, the Seamaster Planet Ocean 600 Co-Axial. Unlike the previous models, the Seamaster 300 used by 007 will be equipped for the first time with the Caliber 2500 with Co-Axial escapement.
The release of the new film is scheduled for April 2020, while the official title of this chapter is still to be confirmed. During these months, we will be able to find out more about the new Seamaster300 and why not, maybe another OMEGA watch.
