Dependable, daring, and oh-so debonair—the world’s most sought-after and beloved spy, James Bond, deserved a timepiece that could embody and keep up with him. That’s where Omega stepped in. Crafted meticulously and built to last, Omega’s watches became the characteristic choice for the spy. And for that, we have Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming to thank. After all, it was she who realized that the famous 007 would fight best with his villains when armed with the Seamaster—the watch featured in every Bond film since 1995. Here, we list the most iconic James Bond watches by Omega, sported by the dashing Daniel Craig and Pierce Brosnan donning the hat of Bond, James Bond.
Seamaster Diver 300M 007 edition
Encased in a tough titanium case and bracelet, this timepiece accurately encapsulates the essence of Bond—strong and sensible. It is slimmer than the standard Diver models and is light on the wrist, making it comfortable for everyday wear. On the case back, discover the engraved 007 gun logo adding to the appeal of this timepiece. It is powered by calibre 8806, which promises enhanced precision, performance and anti-magnetism. It also boasts automatic winding in both directions and a luxe finish, thanks to rhodium-plating on the rotor and bridges with Geneva waves in arabesque.
Seamaster 300 Spectre Limited Edition 41 mm
Another in the list of James Bond watches is featuring the iconic five-stripe black and grey NATO strap, this timepiece has a 41-mm case and is powered by the Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8400, which enhances the watch’s anti-magnetism. The black and gold dial features rhodium-plated hands with vintage Super-Luminova coating and “lollipop” seconds hand. The watch is limited to 7,007 pieces and is sure to catch any Bond fan’s eye. It was created to commemorate the release of the latest Bond film, SPECTRE in 2015. Only 7,007 pieces were produced, making it an instant collector’s item.
Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M Master Co‑Axial Chronometer 41.5 MM
In Spectre, James Bond graced the screen with not one, but two Omega watches. An ode to Omega’s maritime heritage and Bond’s naval background, this timepiece features a sun-brushed and lacquered blue dial and is water-resistant up to 150 meters. The case is made of stainless steel with a transparent case back, exposing the Co-Axial Master Chronometer Caliber 8500. Bringing to mind the deck of a luxury sailboat, the dial boasts a “teak” pattern that adds a touch of elegance and refinement to the watch. The 38.5 mm iteration of this watch was worn in the movie, Skyfall.
Planet Ocean 600M 42 mm

Seamaster Diver 300M Co-Axial Chronometer 41 mm
In 2006, Casino Royale was released featuring a blue-eyed Daniel Craig essaying the role of James Bond for the first time.

The sporty and sensational watch features a 41-mm case and is powered by the Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 2500, ensuring its precision and accuracy. The gleaming blue dial features a wavy pattern and can be seen through the sapphire crystal dome. Rhodium-plating lends this timepiece a luxe finish, making it ideal for a Bond fan.
Seamaster Diver 300M Professional Quartz
The original “Bond Watch” from 1995, this timepiece marked the birth of the Omega and James Bond relationship. Popularized by Pierce Brosnan’s Bond in Goldeneye, the watch featured a helium escape valve, unidirectional rotating bezel and a stainless steel bracelet. It came equipped with all the functionalities necessary for a professional diver as well as special gadgets befitting of a spy. For instance, the watch could be activated remotely to emit a bright light, perfect for disorienting enemies or illuminating the dark corners of a room. It’s no wonder this Seamaster Diver 300M Professional Quartz is one of Omega’s most popular watches.
