James Bond Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra11:42 am
The world famous spy James Bond returns with yet another thrilling adventure in Spectre, set to release in November 2015. Agent 007 is rarely seen without his legendary sports cars and fascinating gadgets which include the latest Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra. With its unmatched new features and breathtaking design the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra is a worthy comrade of James Bond in his action packed lifestyle.
The Limited Edition James Bond Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra is inspired by the Bond family coat of arms. The symbol is beautifully presented in guilloche pattern on the blue PVD dial and as a motif on the yellow seconds hand. The James Bond design is also visible on the rotor at the back of the watch which resembles the inside of a gun barrel.
“the timepiece is resistant to magnetic fields greater than 15,000 Gauss”
The magnificent features of the James Bond Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra include, a resistance to magnetic fields stronger than 15,007 Gauss, and a C.O.S.C. certified Omega caliber 8507 chronometer movement for superb accuracy and precision. Resistance to magnetic fields of over 15,007 Gauss the highest in any wrist watch, has been made possible by making the key components of the movement using non-magnetic alloys and materials.
High magnetic resistance in a wrist watch is extremely important for James Bond, who is often in situations where his gadgets and enemy equipment emit strong magnetic forces. In day to day wear a mechanical wrist watch is exposed to many situations where magnetic fields such as those emitted by electronic devices can over time affect accuracy of the wrist watch or lead to complete failure by magnetizing the movement parts.
The all stainless steel James Bond Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra has a self winding movement with co-axial escapement for greater precision, stability and durability. The power reserve of the watch is an impressive 60 hours suitable for the most extreme of Bond’s missions.
A domed sapphire crystal protects the 41.5mm blue PVD dial which is surrounded by luminous hands, hour markers and yellow minute markers. Diamond cut hands and indexes are present on the blue dial with Bond family coat of arms pattern. The James Bond 007 theme is boldly visible on the blue dial with the iconic 007 gun design nicely merged with the >15007 Gauss logo. The Master Co-Axial Chronometer is a symbol of the precision and accuracy of the latest Omega calibre 8507.
The James Bond style design of Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra extends to the caseback. There is a spectacular view of the rotor with rhodium plated skeleton gun barrel design and a gold bullet at the center with James Bond engraved on it. The James Bond Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra is an extremely rugged timepiece. Being a limited edition each watch has its serial number engraved on the back. Other features include an all steel bracelet, a screw-in crown and 150M water resistance.
A limited production of 15007 pieces makes the James Bond Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra a collector’s favourite. With a 4 year warranty valid across the globe this Omega Seamaster is definitely for those who live an adventurous lifestyle. Currently the watch has a very high demand at Ethos and if you would like to own a James Bond Watch its best to do it fast.
