Bond Classy: Omega’s 007-Themed Bash For New Seamaster 300 ‘Spectre’ WatchWritten by Alvin Wong
Omega staged a stylish soiree to premier the latest Bond movie ‘Spectre’ and its companion timepiece, the Seamaster 300 ‘Spectre’ limited edition.
It was a shindig that James Bond himself wouldn’t have missed. Omega’s boutique at Marina Bay Sands was decked out to resemble a gentleman’s pad, replete with Chesterfield sofas, leather furnishings and of course, an open bar. While guests, especially the gents, were occupied with the drinks and a grooming counter where they could get a classic shave, they were just as enamoured by the new ticker on show.
The new Seamaster 300 ‘Spectre’, a handsome and robust dive watch that offers 300m water resistance and anti-magnetism of up to 15,000 gauss, comes engraved with the ‘007’ and movie logos on the case back, and is limited to a very appropriately numbered 7,007 pieces.
Alvin promises not to be a douche when talking about watches. He may have scoured the Basel and Geneva watch fairs for the past 15 years, and played an instrumental role to the growth of Singapore's pioneering horological and men's lifestyle publications, but the intrepid scribe seeks to learn something new with each story he writes.
