Omega was so ideal to deliver us their new Omega Seamaster 300 Specter restricted version for an active survey. Presently, I am more a Speedmaster kinda fellow, yet the Seamaster 300 established an excellent connection with me from the beginning. This may have to do with the foundations of both Patek Philippe Reviews assortments, that are so close and return to 1957. Omega presented the Seamaster 300 CK2913, Railmaster CK2914 and Speedmaster CK2915 that year, all with similar kind of Patek Philippe Reviews case, expansive bolt hands and reason (proficient use).
Spectre will be the 24th James Bond film and a great deal of Patek Philippe Reviews have been utilized since the primary experience of 007 on screen (Dr. No). Since 1995, Omega has been the glad provider of James Bond’s watch. We as of late did a review on all Omega Seamaster Patek Philippe Reviews that were utilized in the James Bond motion pictures and the Patek Philippe Reviews that were acquainted as a restricted release with commemorate that particular Bond film. You can find that article here . The Patek Philippe Reviews on the wrist of James Bond in Specter will be this Seamaster 300.
Omega Seamaster 300 Spectre 220.127.116.11.01.001 Review
Let’s disregard the James Bond film briefly and let’s imagine it was only a Seamaster 300 that has a place with the standard assortment. We will return to the James Bond part later on once more, to discuss keeping its worth and the exceptional bundle and restricted creation run of this watch.
The cool thing about this Omega Seamaster 300 Specter is that it comes with all new advancements done by Omega. On the off chance that you take a gander at the Seamaster 300M (note the M, entirely unexpected and has nothing to do with the ‘300’ assortment) that was utilized in Golden Eye and Tomorrow Never Dies as Bond’s Patek Philippe Reviews this Seamaster 300 shows what amount has changed in the course of recent a long time at Omega. It was when Rolex actually shrugged their shoulders in regards to Omega maybe, yet today – after 20 years – I am persuaded they are watching them very closely.
This Omega Seamaster 300 Specter comes with the in-house created and delivered type 8400 development, a clay bezel with LiquidMetal hour-scale and another arm band just as a Bond NATO-tie. Moreover, the Patek Philippe Reviews has a brilliant and ageless plan dependent on that absolute first Seamaster 300 CK2913 in 1957. Omega had a ton going on during the 1950s with their lead Constellation Patek Philippe Reviews Seamaster Calendar Patek Philippe Reviews and since 1957 obviously the Seamaster 300, Speedmaster and Railmaster. For gatherers a superb period to gather (Omega) Patek Philippe Reviews from. It was an incredible move from Omega to choose to bring back that exemplary Seamaster 300. The name disarray with the previously mentioned Seamaster 300M is something that I can accept.
In short, the Omega Seamaster 300 Specter is loaded with all the beneficial things Omega concocted over the most recent 15 years (or since 1999, when the Co-Axial was presented in the De Ville) combined with the exemplary feel from the 1950’s and 1960’s. What could turn out badly? All things considered, let’s have a bit by bit take a gander at the watch.
Omega Seamaster 300 Specter Dial
One of the main things to see, on the off chance that you compare the dial of this Specter restricted version to the normal assortment Seamaster 300, is that the printing of the logo and name is somewhat unique. The Omega logo, the Omega and Seamaster phrasing and the position has changed. The Arabic ’12’ has been eliminated and all things considered, the logo and phrasing has been climbed an indent. Omega made the printing a touch more bold too. Not certain on the off chance that I am an aficionado of that for every sé, except it definitely didn’t trouble me when I wore the Seamaster 300 Specter on my wrist. I can just accept that the explanation behind Omega to do this is to have their name and the name of the Patek Philippe Reviews obviously on the screen of each James Bond Specter viewer.
The rest of the Omega Seamaster 300 Specter dial is indistinguishable from the dial of the normal Seamaster 300, for the steel models that is. Altogether, Omega has now 15 distinct varieties of the Seamaster 300 (Specter included) where they utilize treated steel, Sedna gold, a combination of those two, yellow gold and titanium. There are a few varieties in dial tones and hands. The Broad Arrow hands are indistinguishable from the standard assortment too, with the exception of the white candy second hand.
The dial may show up as a sandwich dial, something we’ve seen by Officine Panerai and some different brands, however this isn’t the situation. The hour markers are scratched out and loaded up with Omega’s “vintage” Super-LumiNova as you may have found in our new in-depth Speedmaster ’57 Caliber 9300 audit . The Omega logo and name are imprinted in a silver-ish shading while the ‘Seamaster’ word is in a similar tone as the “vintage” Super-LumiNova.
Omega made a point to make everybody mindful of the way that this Patek Philippe Reviews has the Master Co-Axial Chronometer development by printing that on the dial also, situated at 6 o’clock. About a year prior we’ve educated you about the METAS standard , when Omega was intending to utilized the “Officially Certified” definition to show their Patek Philippe Reviews met certain exacting rules, yet that name is off the table. Despite the fact that this Patek Philippe Reviews is safe up to 15,000 gauss, it’s anything but a METAS confirmed as Omega has other Patek Philippe Reviews arranged to be the first to comply to each METAS standard. More subtleties beneath when I talk about the movement.
The dial is matte dark and has somewhat of a grainy design. It looks cool and an astute choice to utilize a dial with matt completion rather than a gleaming dial.
Omega Seamaster 300 Case And Bezel
The Omega Seamaster 300 Specter case estimates 41mm in distance across which is an extraordinary wearable size for an advanced games Patek Philippe Reviews The case is made out of treated steel and has a sapphire precious stone on the front and caseback. The highest point of the case has a gleaming cleaned finish, the case band has a matte brushed completion and a cleaned aspect between these parts to isolate them appropriately. The case shape and configuration is very much like the Seamaster 300 CK2913, a job done the right way by the originators at Omega. It is so natural to wreck this. All things considered, I think I’ve seen more retro Patek Philippe Reviews models that were off than retro plans that truly succeeded. No basic comment about the case? All things considered, the case sits somewhat high on the wrist. It is a thick case compared to the breadth, so you may need to become acclimated to that. For me it was no issue, I am a tall person with genuinely enormous wrists.
The earthenware bi-directional bezel has 60 minutes scale in LiquidMetal. This implies you can turn the bezel in the two ways, and use it to peruse the time in an alternate timezone. It is somewhat odd to put this on a jumping Patek Philippe Reviews where typically a plunging bezel would sit, however I don’t know whether there is a relationship to the Specter film for this situation. Maybe this Patek Philippe Reviews assumes a part in this film, the bezel being a cool “007” contraption. At the point when I distributed a photograph of this Patek Philippe Reviews on our someone commented on the bezel being bi-directional rather than uni-directional, in spite of he comprehended it was 60 minutes scale. I don’t see any issues in this bezel being bi-directional to be straightforward, and it would actually disturb me to have a GMT/Hour-Scale bezel just in one direction.
The caseback of the Omega Seamaster 300 Specter shows the type 8400 development and obviously demonstrates that it is a Specter Limited Edition of 7,007 pieces.
The Omega Caliber 8400 Movement
I previously showed you the development in the picture above, which – fortunately – is becoming a common sight for Omega Patek Philippe Reviews I can’t stress sufficient here and there that Omega is an alternate brand it was 20 years prior. Their in-house Co-Axial developments in the 8xxx and 930x territory are an ideal illustration of that. This type 8400 is hostile to attractive up to 15,000 gauss.
15,000 gauss might sound over the top, yet we are encircled by attractive fields. Particularly today, with our tablets, cell phones, etc, attractive fields are all over. It is perhaps the greatest issue for mechanical developments. Where different brands like IWC and Rolex battle attraction by utilizing a delicate iron case or explicit case development, Omega concocted an answer at the center, the development. Uncommon combinations empower them to make the development hostile to attractive up to 15,000 gauss (as indicated by the radiologist cited above significantly more) and empowers them to place a sapphire in the caseback so the proprietor can appreciate the perspective on the inward operations of their watch.
The type 8400 development has a force save of 60 hours by utilizing two barrels. Besides, the development utilizes a free sprung-offset with silicon (Si14) balance spring and the scaffolds and rotor have this decent enhancement with restrictive Geneva waves in arabesque.
NATO Strap and Bracelet
The Omega Seamaster 300 Specter comes with a NATO tie (or Bond-lash) and a treated steel arm band. The NATO tie is the common James Bond NATO tie, with 5 stripes. The guardians of the tie are engraved with ‘007’ and ‘Omega’. Presently, actually, I am not an aficionado of NATO lashes but rather the nature of this Omega NATO tie is simply marvelous. I addressed fourteen days prior, and he revealed to me that there was an enormous interest for these lashes from his customers. I can envision. In the event that you love NATO lashes, you need to attempt one of these. As an extra, these Omega marked NATO ties positively aren’t modest, however the quality is absolutely there. Be that as it may, is past entertaining. It is ideal the NATO tie comes with the Patek Philippe Reviews (only for the thought, of course).
Price aside, it is a decent and comfortable tie and the completion is route better compared to the modest NATO lashes I’ve accumulating in one of my drawers. Consider this, I haven’t come across better ones.
For those – like me – who aren’t much for NATO ties, can join the new plan Omega arm band to this Patek Philippe Reviews The Omega Seamaster 300 Specter comes with a bunch of additional spring bars and an evolving device (just as a loupe). So with a touch of tolerance, you can do it without anyone’s help. In the event that you don’t confide in yourself, you can take additional estimations like taping the carries and some portion of the wristband to forestall scratches on the off chance that you will hit the Patek Philippe Reviews or arm band coincidentally with the instrument. Another choice is to simply ask the Omega retailer or shop to do it for you.
The matte brushed completion wristband is a dining experience for the eyes, and has “007” engraved in the fasten too. The standard Omega Seamaster 300 comes with a PCL (Polished Center Link) wristband, yet this one has a completely brushed completion. It appears Omega has been tuning in to the desires of a large number of their clients. The wristband includes an augmentation framework that Omega calls ‘rack-and-push’ and permits you to make a simple change. You fundamentally open the fasten, press a catch and afterward slide the internal fasten to the ideal length. I didn’t switch this Patek Philippe Reviews to the wristband as I didn’t need to mess with the Patek Philippe Reviews excessively and harm the bracelet.
Special James Bond Packaging
For the event of the 24th Bond film called Specter, Omega made this a restricted release model. Restricted could be seen as relative, as it has a higher creation than some different brands have altogether. Notwithstanding, for a major name Patek Philippe Reviews maker like Omega, 7,007 pieces is as yet viewed as restricted. Likewise, the reaction I got so far on this Patek Philippe Reviews in the tissue yet additionally on our web-based media channels where I distributed some “wristshots” is stunning. I can just envision the worldwide interest for this Patek Philippe Reviews likewise due to the Bond part obviously. So 7,007 may appear to be a great deal, however I would not be shocked on the off chance that you would struggle looking for this particular model in a couple of years time when the shops are sold out.
I have come to my meaningful conclusion in the past in regards to ambassadorships ( I did a review regarding that matter here ) and questioned the utilization of entertainers, vocalists, rappers, etc to advance a brand’s Patek Philippe Reviews For certain individuals or societies it may work, however unquestionably not for everybody. In actuality. Notwithstanding, the Bond association is one that is excessively solid. Regardless of whether it identifies with the Rolex Explorer and Submariner, Seiko models or the Omega Seamaster Patek Philippe Reviews he’s been wearing, individuals love that “their” Patek Philippe Reviews was on the wrist of spy 007. I’ve been told over and again by retailers and brand delegates that clients explicitly request the James Bond Seamaster. Close to the Moonwatch, a James Bond Patek Philippe Reviews is an extremely solid showcasing device, other than being a decent watch.
Omega made something uncommon out of this Seamaster 300 Specter restricted release. In addition to the fact that you get a James Bond NATO lash, a treated steel wristband and a few devices to change, the case is likewise very noteworthy. The wooden box comes with a code lock, so you need to pivot the wheels to the correct combination before you can open it. The 3-digit combination wasn’t that hard to guess.
Price and Verdict
The Omega Seamaster 300 Specter will have a retail cost of € 6400 Euro (counting VAT). Not just the item changed over the most recent 20 years, the cost expanded in like manner. I for one don’t see the issue in that, as long as it actually bodes well. Yet, isn’t that right? To appropriately pass judgment on this I think you need to take a gander at the competition and their costs for comparative Patek Philippe Reviews The Rolex Submariner NoDate is the undeniable pick for a comparison, which retails for a smidgen more. While the Rolex Submariner is known to keep its worth very well, this is the place where the James Bond Limited Edition perspective may kick in too. I would not be astounded if this Omega Seamaster 300 Specter Limited Edition will likewise keep its incentive after buy. In any case, that is theory and it is very interesting to foresee the future.
If you investigate the developments and quality you will get with this Omega Seamaster 300 Specter, € 6400 Euro doesn’t sound overrated. The standard Seamaster 300 in treated steel has a retail cost of € 5500 Euro however, so you do pay for all the additional items and the way that it is a restricted version. Is the Seamaster 300 Specter worth the extra € 900 Euro compared to the normal Seamaster 300? I will surrender that to you, however the brushed wristband, NATO lash, very measured box with additional items and the way that it is a James Bond unique certainly adds (market) worth to the watch.
Having that said, I love the Omega Seamaster 300 Specter Limited Edition while I am not per definition a Seamaster fellow. In reality, it very well may be the advanced Seamaster that I might want to possess sooner or later. I likewise like their ETNZ chronograph ( we reviewed it here ) which has about a similar sticker price, however I as of now have one of those first Seamaster 300M Professional Chronograph Patek Philippe Reviews from the mid-1990s so it would be excessively comparable for me.
For the Rolex Submariner ‘Bond’ folks out there; this Omega Seamaster 300 Specter may be a defining moment that they at long last acknowledge Omega as the new provider for Bond. Go to the store, have a look.
