    Looks nice on the beige NATO, not so much on the mesh. Too big of a gap between the mesh and the case. Also I have never been a fan of this bond Seamaster because of the miniscule crown.

    I like it...I think! It certainly is the second best Bond edition I have seen after the Spectre Seamaster.

    But >£7k is a silly price when the standard model are £3k cheaper!

    The bezel is a none ceramic scratch magnet. It does look very nice though. Price is a rip off and I for one would be more than happy with the standard, and cheaper, Seamaster.

    My first thought also, I thought use of the pheon outside of mill issue was pretty strict, I guess this must have been released of late as I was very surprised to see it used here. A bit disappointed also tbh.

    For me, they should have kept the same design on the new bracelet. In Titanium it would have been killer.

    With the solid case back, I would not have resisted it.

    So not a limited edition then, have even Omega become a little embarrassed at the sheer number of LE releases in the last couple of years.

    I guess production will be time limited in some way but this will be one to pick up pre owned for sure, depreciation could be savage.

    Exactly my thoughts, itís like an offspring of a modern seamaster and a vintage milsub, odd

    I agree and yet I disagree (if that makes any sense)

    Itís Probably just as accurate, looks are a matter of opinion (Iím not a seamaster fan btw) but I wouldnít say youíre crazy for buying one over a sub if you like it. In fact you could argue itís a way cooler watch if you werenít on the brand train. Isnít it actually cheaper than a sub too?

    This is going to be one of those watches I won't be able to avoid on IG for the next few months it seems. A bit too much fauxtina for my liking. The ceramic/ti watch is a much better and nicer watch.

    Maybe I am getting too old, but to me it looks like a toy. Too much colour and too much definition.

    Itís an interesting thing the lume colour and some people saying they hate the faux vintage. Given the same watch with bright white lume the faux lume just looks nicer to my eye. Forget vintage and just imagine we can have our lume any colour (which we can and doesnít have to exclusively mean vintage) Iíd just rather a browner lume colour than pure white or green.

    If I were to produce a watch itíd have a more tan lume just because I like the look but itíd immediately get shot down for being faux vintage even though itís just what I want to see on my wrist today.

    Apart from not liking the fake arrow, just realised it's in titanium so thats a double no from me. Can't see the attraction of titanium tbh, it always looks and feels 'cheap' to me, almost like monkey metal.
    Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyway.

    Did the Titanium Ploprof have a Titanium mesh?

    I donít get faux lume colour on this model. AFAIK SM 300m did not had tritium dial, why they even bothered to replicate radium colour?

    As a Omega fan I have to say it's a crazy price.

    Omega wants so much to play in the Rolex league.

    Personally, I'd drop all those endless "Special Editions", which cheapen the brand.

    The watch itself is quite nice but not 7390 pound nice. Not even close.

    It is very expensive compared to the standard model but you just canít buy a Submariner these days off the shelf.

    I do just wonder if Omega are being somewhat opportunistic regarding the price because of the dearth of Rolex Professional models.

    Personally, I donít like any of the Bond themed watches, cheapens the brand IMO, and would buy the standard model instead.

    I think it's a great looking watch. Like many others here, however, I'm not intereted at all as the price is mad. Nevertheless, I would imagine if someone who's not really familiar with watches walk into an Omega AD and sees this, this could have its appeals

    This is a good point, and to me it's the only saving grace for the ongoing faux-lume craze. If one considers the choice of lume colour in the content of the overall design and not whether it's meant to replicate decaying lume on an old, knackered watch, then I think it makes sense.

    This watch in particular looks great on the beige NATO, thanks largely to the lume colour.

    I got a call today from my local Omega AD I have brought from in the past and said they are getting 4, do I want one. For >7k I politely declined. Nice watch but crazy money for broadly the same watch that is being discounted.

    how would people react to that exact watch if it were a Rolex? And the standard seamaster too. I know I know...Rolex probably wouldn't make it, but if they did, how would you react?

    personally, I think the standard seamaster is a great design, and a fabulous movement. This version I like, I like that its a Titanium version, I like that the dial and bezel is different although personally perhaps its not the colour I'd chose were i the designer but I'm happy its different. price wise...I'd love all luxury watches i like to be cheaper clearly! If it were a Rolex I doubt there would be complaints over the pricing. Yes Omega are keen to get back on terms with Rolex, well, they have in many ways...but maybe not in all.

    I've read for years that Special Editions cheapen the brand yet they never seem to get any cheaper. The opposite in fact.

    Brilliant! Best comment Iíve read on here since I joined. I couldnít agree more

    Size apart and I definitely live with that if someone gave me one, I actually really like this watch. One of the better Bond special editions from what Iíve seen. However, and this is getting very repetitive..... How blooming much?!!!?

    Cards on the table, Iím an Omega fan but this is all getting a bit daft.

    Whilst LEs donít get any cheaper, I just think the numbers released have a detrimental effect on the prestige of the brand. Maybe its just my perception.

    Normally limited edition Bond tie-ins make my palms itch - I just think theyíre a bit naff and Walt-ish, and redolent of regional sales managers on corporate ďcombat trainingĒ away-days...

    That said, and may the Good Lord in His infinite wisdom and charity have mercy on me for saying so, I quite like this. Christ, I feel soiled for even thinking that. But there we are. I really like Ti watches and I think the mesh, dial and bezel colour and even the faux-vintage lume all work together rather nicely.

    I do understand people gasping at the price (which is indeed ludicrous) but when you look at it objectively, all luxury watches are ludicrously priced, so personally I prefer not to go too far down that road lest logic dictates that I only ever wear Vostoks. ;-)

    Weíll all be dead soon, I guess should we really care. There wonít be many more generations that they appeal to.

    My feeling is, if they release enough there might be one I like! We seem to be stuck on this whole investment thing but theyíre watches first an foremost. The prices will fall soon, vintage market is dropping and hot Rolex sales threads are being bumped rather than snapped up and ďI had a WTB for one grrrĒ posts left.

    I was called yesterday asking if I wanted one of the boutique/AD allocation at Lakeside. I said I liked the watch head, disliked the Ti bracelet and felt the price was comedy. I am not interested if itís LE or not, the price is simply away with the fairies.
    That said, Iím sure itíll sell in bundles simply because buyers can actually go into a shop and buy one - unlike some other popular brands.

    It's a bit gaudy with that voluminous bezel ring, but that's nothing new for Bond. It would be cool to see him wear more stuff like the Aqua Terra from Skyfall in the future.

    Well, now we know why Omega had to steal the Broadarrow brand etc. from Eddie.

    Overpriced and faux patina. I'm not interested at all.

    Interesting point, I guess they must pay the owners of the Bond franchise some kind of royalty fee?

    I wonder if Bremont would do me a Johnny English watch (when they've finished with those Ronnie Wood monstrosities)
