DANIEL CRAIG VISITS OMEGA

Posted on September 28, 2015 at 3:32 PM by / 0

The Omega factory in Villeret, Switzerland, recently welcomed Daniel Craig to its inauguration. The actor, who reprises his role as James Bond in “Spectre,” the 24th Bond adventure to be released in late fall, was given a guided tour and exclusive access to the factory’s assembly line. During the visit he was also shown production of the new Omega Seamaster 300 Spectre Limited Edition, which went on sale in September. Nick Hayek, Swatch Group CEO, and Stephen Urquhart, president of Omega, conducted the tour and explained to the actor all that goes into making an Omega watch.

“I think what was so impressive was the fact that these watches are made from the ground up,” says Craig. “You start with nothing, and then there’s suddenly a working watch. That’s the beauty of it. To see the engineering that goes into it and the legacy that goes into it, that’s what fascinated me.”

The Seamaster, with its naval history and classic style, has been James Bond’s watch since “GoldenEye” (1995). Now, in celebration of the new movie, fans and watch collectors will be able to buy the model worn by 007 in “Spectre,” as this Omega Seamaster 300 will go on sale as a limited edition. The watch features a rotating diving bezel made from black, polished ceramic, combined with a LiquidMetal twelve-hour scale. Each watch has its own unique serial number engraved on the back along with the “Spectre” film logo.
