The all new Omega Seamaster 300 “SPECTRE” limited edition, which will be going on sale in September, has already started creating headlines by being one of the most sought after timepieces by Hollywood stars. Daniel Craig makes a special visit to the heart of the Swiss watchmaking industry for the inauguration of Omega’s factory in Villeret, Switzerland. The actor who reprises his role as James Bond in SPECTRE, the 24th Bond adventure, was given a guided tour, as well as 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.
Creating a moment in history, the event saw Nick Hayek, Swatch Group CEO, and Stephen Urquhart, President of Omega coming together with Craig, showing him exactly what goes into the making of their watches. Wearing a Spectre himself and an avid collector of timepieces, he was fascinated by the engineering and expertise on show. In celebration of Bond’s new classic movie, fans and wathc collectors will be able to buy the model worn by 007 in Spectre, as the Omega Seamaster 300 will go on sale as a limited edition. The release marks a first for the partnership; until now, only commemorative editions have been used to celebrate OMEGA’s link with the franchise.[bg_gallery images=”1478,1476,1475,1474,1477″ thumb_image_size=”thumbnail” columns=”5″][/bg_gallery]
