Introduced two months ago, a few weeks back we received the first batch of our Omega Seamaster 300 ‘Spectre’ 126.96.36.199.01.001 watches. Occupied with the relocation of our Ace Online HQ, we only just found the time to share these pics we took of this stunning new watch. And one thing’s for sure – it does not disappoint!
Compared to the regular 188.8.131.52.01.001, the changes are subtle yet noticeable. There’s the bezel – the dive style count-up bezel has been exchanged for a 12-hour version. Done in polished ceramic with a LiquidMetal 12 hour scale, it is now bi-directional. The latter of course in tune with its intended functionality.
The seconds hand on the Spectre Seamaster 300 is of the ‘lollipop’ variation, with an oversized luminous dot at the very end – in tune with early CK2913 Seamaster 300’s. Then there’s of course the dial. The numeral ’12’ has been dropped in favour of a larger-than-usual logo. The only visible 007 reference on the watch itself is on the case back band, of which we sadly do not have a photo at this point.
As customary with Omega special models of more recent times, the box set that comes with it is rather impressive. In the pic above the combination lock of the box itself is shown, while below we see a detail of the 007 Spectre branding.
Only shown on NATO strap in the initial press pics, our friends over at WatchBase soon discovered that the watch would be delivered with a bracelet as well. And not just any bracelet – a fully brushed version of the bracelet offered on the regular Seamaster 300, something legions of Omega fans have been asking for for ages. As witnessed below, there is a somewhat subtle 007 logo on the clasp.
Last but not least: resized and on the wrist, right where it belongs.
The Seamaster 300 Spectre is SOLD OUT.
