After the first filming in Jamaica, the production of the highly anticipated Bond 25 continues in London. In the new chapter dedicated to Agent 007 directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga we find the protagonist returning after taking a quiet retreat in Jamaica, but interrupted when a US agent, Felix, asks him for help in saving a scientist kidnapped by a dangerous villain - played by Rami Malek - possessing a deadly new technology.
In the latest images shared by the official account of the film, a Daniel Craig is seen in splendid shape on the streets of London despite the ankle injury sustained on the set that required surgery.
Returning from his good retirement in Jamaica, Agent007 returned to the UK capital where he was immortalized at the wheel of a splendid Aston Martin, the same one driven by Timothy Dalton in the film “The Living Daylights”, with a V8 engine.
In addition to having noticed the splendid Prince of Wales dress made by the American designer Tom Ford, our eyes could not help but scrutinize the watch that Bond will wear in the new film.
And here is the new one making its way from the cuff of the shirt Omega Seamaster 300 in an unprecedented version with 'toned' or cream-colored indexes, as well as the graduated scale on the ring. In addition, we can see the 'mesh' or Milanese bracelet for the first time mounted on the Seamaster 300 model.
In production since 1993, the Seamaster Diver 300M has just celebrated its 25th anniversary. For the occasion, the watch has been redesigned and improved in every aspect: design, high quality materials and new manufacture movement.
The Omega Seamaster Diver 300M, 007's faithful companion
The Omega Seamaster 300 made its first appearance on the wrist of James Bond - played by Pierce Brosnan - in 1995 on the occasion of the film Golden Eye.
This partnership, the one between OMEGA and Agent007, immediately created great interest from the public and the media. Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming explained why she chose a Seamaster for Golden Eye "I chose the OMEGA Seamaster blue dial because I thought Commander Bond, naval man, diver, discreet gentleman and man of the world , would have worn this watch rather than what everyone expected…. "
Since then, the Seamaster300 has been Agent 007's faithful companion in adventures and will appear on Pierce Brosnan's wrist 3 more times, during the filming of TOMORROW NEVER DIES (1997), THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH (1999)DIE ANOTHER DAY (2002)
The return to the set with Daniel Craig
The Seamaster Diver 300 returns in 2006 in Casino Royale on the wrist of the 'new' Bond interpreted by Daniel Craig, who will alternate on set with another OMEGA, the Seamaster Planet Ocean 600 Co-Axial. Unlike previous models, the Seamaster 300 used by 007 will be equipped for the first time with the Caliber 2500 with Co-Axial escapement.
The release of the new film is set for April 2020, while the official title of this chapter is still being confirmed. During these months, we will have the opportunity to discover the new Seamaster300 in more detail and why not, maybe another OMEGA watch.
