“The watch features a bi-directional, rotating diving bezel, made from black, polished ceramic, combined with a LiquidMetal® 12 hour scale, so that time can be kept with any country in the world.”
The actor recently visited the OMEGA factory in Villeret, Switzerland, where he witnessed the production of the Seamaster 300 “SPECTRE” Limited Edition. Craig was impressed by the production of the watch, “To see the engineering that goes into it and legacy that goes into it, that’s what fascinated me.”
Looking to take advantage of the unique properties of Liquidmetal alloys, Swatch Group became a licensee of Liquidmetal technology in 2009. Liquidmetal alloy is now featured in several OMEGA watches, predominantly in the Seamaster family. The zirconium-based amorphous metal allows for the blending of ceramic and metal due to its low critical cooling rate, resulting in impressive hardness and corrosion resistance.
According to OMEGA, each timepiece has a unique serial number and SPECTRE logo on the back, along with the 007 gun logo engraved on the bracelet’s strap holder. Exactly 7,007 watch pieces will be available for purchase in selected boutiques beginning in September.
