Daniel Craig attended the inauguration of the OMEGA factory in Villeret and enjoyed a chance to observe the production process of his new watch. The Bienne-based brand has a longstanding partnership with 007 and its Seamaster collection has been a permanent fixture on James Bond’s wrist since GoldenEye back in 1995. In Spectre, the 24th chapter in the famous spy’s ongoing adventures due for release in November, James Bond is equipped with the OMEGA Seamaster 300. While awaiting the new movie, fans and collectors can already treat themselves to the OMEGA Seamaster 300 “SPECTRE” Limited Edition that will of course be issued in a 7,007-piece limited edition.
