Omega Seamaster James Bond 50th Anniversary

Omega Seamaster James Bond 50th Anniversary Watch Review
  Omega has officially unveiled the new James Bond 50th Anniversary Seamaster seen at this years Baselworld. This is the 41mm version being released as a limited edition of 11,007 pieces...not sure how limited that really is? This latest James Bond 007 edition keeps the same classic Seamaster styling that has defined the watch, along with some aesthetic differences. Most notably the dial has “007” monogram repeated consecutively at an upward angle. This has gone over with some mixed reviews. Not much middle ground here, either like or you don’t it appears. On the bezel, the “50” is highlighted in red, representing the 50 years of James Bond. Good idea, though, seems a bit out of place. If you are a diehard Bond fan, then it is probably perfect. The case back is gorgeous, it reveals the rotor that looks like the butt of bullet. Great attention to detail done here. Under the hood is a C.O.S.C. 2507 Co-axil self winding movement, with a 48 hour power reserve. Overall, the watch will have its place in the market, those that own one will surely love it.

Pros - Classic watch with James Bond twist

Consideration - Is it to much Bond?
