When Daniel Craig hits the silver screen in his final appearance as James Bond in No Time To Die, he’ll have a handy new timepiece on his wrist. Craig’s Bond will be wearing the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition watch, which was designed in collaboration with Craig for the 25th official film in the franchise.
Bond has been wearing an Omega watch since Pierce Brosnan played the character in 1995’s GoldenEye. For this particular timepiece, Omega is releasing it as part of a non-limited collection in February, giving fans everywhere the chance to wear the same timepiece as Craig’s Bond in the new film.
The design of the new Seamaster was inspired by Bond’s military past as a former Royal Naval Reserve Commander, as he would have been given an Omega watch in real life if he was a British Royal Navy officer. The Bond films’ original partnership with Omega was in part inspired by that history as well.
“When our costume designer on GoldenEye, Lindy Hemming, whose father would have been one of the people who got the Navy Omega watch in the war, recommended it, I felt that particular history was a fit for the character,” said longtime Bond producer Michael G. Wilson, who has worked on the franchise since 1972, at a press conference for the release of the watch. “Omega first came to mind for me as a strong timepiece when Neil Armstrong stepped on the moon and all the astronauts had Omega timepieces. When Lindy brought it to me, I thought, ‘if it’s good enough for the astronauts, it has to be good enough for James Bond.’”
Craig himself collaborated with the design team, making it the first time ever that an actor playing Bond helped design a watch for the character.
When it was brought to me at the beginning of the filming process, I thought, ‘You’ve done it: This is the James Bond watch.’
“I wanted to help create a watch that suited my Bond character, who is a military man at heart,” Craig said at the press conference. “We started having a dialogue and Omega took in my input, and the watch is the culmination of that dialogue, and, in a way, a culmination of my character of Bond in this series of films. It’s a military watch, but it’s also elegant. You can wear it as a dress watch, but it feels like a military watch, which is what Bond would need. It’s titanium, and light as a feather. When it was brought to me at the beginning of the filming process, I thought, ‘You’ve done it: This is the James Bond watch.’”
The new Seamaster is featured multiple times in the No Time To Die trailer, including when Bond is speaking with Spectre villain Blofeld (Christoph Waltz) and later when he gets ready to shoot a gun around the two minute mark. Here’s a look at the trailer:
The watch will be available with a titanium mesh bracelet strap, or a striped NATO strap in dark brown, gray, and beige, which also has “007″ engraved on the loop. The timepieces are made with Grade 2 Titanium on the case and mesh bracelet, and the caseback includes references to the Omega’s military history as well as the Bond character.
Each watch includes a naval code-number that fits the format for genuine military-issue watches along with “007,” for Bond’s double-00 agent number, and “62,” referencing the year the first Bond film (Dr. No) was released. The Seamaster watch with the NATO strap is available for $ 8,100, while the titanium mesh strap timepiece is set at $ 9,200.
Here’s a close look at Craig wearing the titanium mesh strap version of the watch in the film:

Roger Moore, an actor who played the iconic James Bond character in film made what some felt was a racist jab towards English actor, Idris Elba. Moore seemingly balked at Elba playing Bond but has since backtracked on comments he made in a magazine.
Moore, who played Bond in seven films, was quoted in an interview in Paris Match magazine where he not only took a dig at Elba but also threw Cuba Gooding Jr. under the bus as well.
“A few years ago, I said that Cuba Gooding Jr. would make an excellent Bond, but it was a joke,” said Moore “Although James may have been played by a Scot, a Welshman and an Irishman, I think he should be ‘English-English’. Nevertheless, it’s an interesting idea, but unrealistic.”
The last portion of his comment was apparently aimed at the speculation that Elba would play the super spy after the Sony Pictures email hack revealed talks of that role switch occuring. The Grio reported on the backlash that Moore received over his viewpoints, and the actor took to Twitter and essentially took back his comments.
“An interview I gave to Paris Match implies I said something racist about Idris Elba. That is simply untrue. #Lost in translation,” tweeted More on Saturday.
Thus far, it doesn’t seem like Elba or his reps have issued any comments regarding Moore.

Rush Limbaugh thinks the next James Bond should be played by a white actor. It’s not fair. White people get all the good roles — like the actor who currently plays the comical Rush Limbaugh character.
Coincidentally, Rush Limbaugh would make a fabulously convincing James Bond villain.
Hollywood rumors suggest that Idris Elba, a highly regarded black actor, might play the legendary superspy once Daniel Craig becomes too old for the role… which, if Bond movie history is any indication, should be around the time Craig turns 80.
Limbaugh compared a black James Bond to George Clooney portraying President Obama on film. I’m probably not the first to point out the obvious difference. Barack Obama is a real person. It would be absurd- and without credibility- for a white man to portray the nation’s first black president. But James Bond is a fictional character, like Harry Potter and Spiderman and Queen Elizabeth. James Bond can be anyone. A better analogy would be to compare a black James Bond with a white John Shaft. Though to be honest, I thought those 1970s Shaft blaxploitation films would’ve worked better with Paul Reiser in the title role.
It stands to reason that James Bond would change. Throughout its cinematic history, the Bond movies themselves have continuously changed — from silly to serious, from campy to gritty. The only common denominator is they’re always about 15 minutes too long.
James Bond movies are a simple formula; one mysterious man with super skills singlehandedly tries to save the world. It’s like the complete opposite of Donald Trump’s life. And this formula has been copied so often that, by now, the only thing that really separates the Bond films from all the other action flicks is the name of the character. Skyfall would be no less entertaining a spy thriller had Daniel Craig played Agent 008, Marty Wu.
James Bond could make the transition to black or Asian or gay or deaf by simply clicking his state-of-the-art, weaponized gadget pen. And, for the most part, America wouldn’t give it much thought. In fact, I suspect that even Rush Limbaugh would quickly get used to the idea. I heard they’re remaking Ghostbusters with a female cast. Eh, I still prefer Bill Murray and Harold Ramis. But I’ll get used to the idea. And if it looks good, I’ll go see it. And if it looks bad, then I… well, I’ll probably still go see it. Hell, it’s Ghostbusters!
Rush Limbaugh isn’t racist for being uncomfortable with Idris Elba as James Bond. Limbaugh thinks James Bond should be white. That’s his opinion, which is about as newsworthy as anyone else’s opinion. Real racism is a destructive form of prejudice, asserting that one race is superior to another. Real racism is the vast social power structure that has led to the historical inequality and economic stratification that continue to fuel America’s racial conflict. Rush Limbaugh’s recent comments? Not a big deal. I doubt Martin Luther King would’ve cared who plays the lead in the next James Bond movie. Martin Luther King was concerned with bigger issues, as told in the critically acclaimed Selma, the new bio-pic starring Ryan Gosling as Martin Luther King.
Rush Limbaugh’s comments are not so much about race as they are about change. Limbaugh, like so many people, is afraid of social change. Tea Party members are insistent on preserving America’s innocent, peaceful past, a simple time when everyone happily accepted traditional roles and the social hierarchy. Unfortunately, society was never innocent. And the fictionalized “past” that conservatives daydream about is about as real as Die Another Day, the James Bond movie where Pierce Brosnan drives an invisible Aston Martin through a giant ice palace.
I’m sure Rush Limbaugh and his followers don’t hate the idea of a black James Bond. And they’re fine with black heroes starring in other action films. It’s just that they’re comfortable with the familiar. They’re secure with what they already believe. They know white James Bond… or at least they think they know him. Similarly, the Tea Party members, I’m sure, didn’t want the police to overexert their power in killing Eric Garner, a nonviolent street criminal played, in real life, by a black man. But it happened. And rather than rationalize the situation or make excuses, wouldn’t it be better to just acknowledge that, like so many aspects of society (like, for example, the film industry), there was a racial component? Race exists and we are not a color blind society. And once we accept this, we can make changes. Because sometimes change is good.
