No Time to Die, the long-awaited 25th James Bond film, is finally slated to make its big-screen debut on October 8, 2021. Despite all the Covid-related delays of the film’s release, we’ve all known since December 2019 what watch Bond will be wearing: the Swiss super clone Omega Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition, a military-look dive watch designed with the input of Bond actor Daniel Craig himself. In anticipation of its cinematic debut, I gave the luxury fake watch a full once-over, with an eye toward both stylishness and functionality, two necessities for any timepiece worn by the world’s most suave secret agent.
Swiss made super clone Omega UK says that its design team was in contact with Craig, who will star as Bond for the fifth and apparently final time in the upcoming movie, throughout the process, utilizing his knowledge of the character’s cinematic and literary history. In a quote provided for the Swiss watchmaker, the British actor and copy watch aficionado stated, “When working with best quality super clone Omega, we decided that a lightweight watch would be key for a military man like 007. I also suggested some vintage touches and color to give the watch a unique edge.”
Practical utility on a mission was almost certainly a factor in designing the case, which is made of grade 2 titanium and mostly matte-finished — thus ensuring lightness on the wrist, toughness under adverse conditions, and a distinct lack of glare in missions requiring stealth. The standard high quality super clone Omega comes on a mesh bracelet of the same material, though our review watch was mounted instead on a color-coordinated NATO-style fabric strap for an even more military look. The 42-mm size of the Swiss movement fake Omega is comfortable and well balanced on almost any wrist, with the caseback’s convex curve nestling nicely into place. The lugs are sharply but elegantly curved.
Handling the case, one of the aspects that stands out is the unidirectional rotating bezel, whose top surface is inscribed with the 60-minute scale expected of a professional-grade divers’ copy watches for sale, and whose sides are scalloped rather than fluted, presumably for the thumb and forefinger to easily grip the indentations to rotate the bezel for setting dive times. In practice, I’m not sure that it’s actually easier for the fingers to grasp the scalloped edges than to get traction on a more traditional notched bezel, but the bezel does ratchet smoothly with a pleasant series of clicks. And the unconventional shape of the edges adds a very attractive hint of sportiness to the overall design, as well as being very consistent with Omega Seamaster fake for men designs of the past. Another element that marks this as a professional divers’ watch is the helium release valve at 10 o’clock, which not only adds a technical feature that a diver (or a submersible-manning secret agent) can actually use, but whose fluted edge, matching that of the screw-down crown, adds a slight bit of asymmetrical charm to the overall design while being just small and unobtrusive enough not to press into the wrist.
The “tropical brown” color scheme of the bezel matches that of the dial, and both are made from aluminum, another materials decision made in the service of keeping the overall high quality super clone Omega Seamaster lightweight. (In keeping with Craig’s “vintage touches of color” statement, tropical brown generally refers to a black dial that has become discolored over time due to exposure to sunlight, a phenomenon associated with many desirable vintage luxury replica timepieces.) The dial uses an array of large, geometrically shaped indexes, all coated with a generous application of tan, faux-patina-colored Super- LumiNova — rectangular bars at the cardinal points, doubled at 12 o’clock, and round “bubbles” for the remaining hour markers.
