Omega James Bond Watch Review For “No Time To Die”
Scheduled to release in October 2021, the new James Bond movie “No Time To Die” will debut with one of the best Bond watches. For this movie, the new James Bond watch will again be a part of the Omega Seamster 300m collection. After getting hands on with this watch for unboxing video review, we’ve concluded that the new James Bond watch for No Time To Die is much different than the traditional Seamaster 300m but much better.
In our review of the Omega James Bond watch for No Time To Die we’ll cover how this watch stands out from other Seamasters, why this might be the best Bond watch, and a list of other notable Omega watches from previous movies.
Check out our full video review of the new James Bond Watch on Youtube.
The dial for the Omega James Bond watch for No Time To Die provides a very vintage feel for such a modern watch. Everything from the dial to the indices appears to be a bit faded, which adds so much character to this watch. In an era where manufactured vintage at times appears to be overdone or overused, the No Time To Die Omega James Bond watch shatters the mold. Omega has perfectly blended modern technology housed in a watch that appears like it’s stood the test of time.
If you were James Bond you would want a watch that doesn’t weigh you down. Omega has delivered that with a solid lightweight grade 2 titanium case. The watch that we got hands on with in our video review had the nato strap and it felt virtually weightless.
This is vastly different than the bulky Omega Seamaster 300m. This is a watch that I used to own and the weight of it can at times be overwhelming.
Strap / Bracelet
The Omega James Bond watch reference for the movie No Time To Die has two different options for a strap / bracelet. The more popular option is the milanaise bracelet, which is constructed out of light weight grade 2 titanium. The second is a soft and comfortable striped nato strap. Both compliment the watch and provide two distinct looks that’ll appease different types of buyers.
Maybe the most impressive feature of the Omega James Bond watch for the No Time To Die movie is the luminous aluminum bezel. Not only does the bezel feel as light as the titanium watch it also has an improved rotation of the bezel compared to the original Seamaster 300m. Besides both lighter weight and easier to use, the best upgrade is the luminous numeral and markers. It is something you truly need to see for yourself but if you local dealer doesn’t have one, you can view it on our video review.
Omega 8806 Co-Axial Master Chronometer Movement
Powering the new James Bond watch is the in-house Omega Calibre 8806 automatic movement. This movement is exactly similar to the Calibre 8800 but doesn’t include the date function. Like all current Omega calibres, the 8806 is METAS certified, which means that it’s highly accurate not only in normal conditions but also in high stress environments.

Omega James Bond Watch Pricing & Availability
The two references of the No Time To Die Omega James Bond watches can be purchased for $8,100 & $9,200 MSRP. The reference with the milanaise bracelet commands the higher price tag.
These watches are difficult to source at authorized dealers and often command a premium on the pre-owned market because of their scarcity.
