However, it’s time to look at the modern timepieces of the franchise. The classic watches which have sat on the wrist of Daniel Craig, the current Bond and one of the most physical actors in the role.

Starting off in his debut performance, Casino Royale saw two different models of Omega watches take centre stage. The first of which was the Omega Seamaster Diver 300m watch, reference number 2220.80. It’s a gorgeous model to look at, with a stunning metal composition which would have looked rugged yet stylish. His second model was the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean, reference number 2900.50.91, which is a model that’s equally stylish and is a fantastic men’s watch, both being in the classic Omega style!

The next film to star Craig saw the Omega Seamaster watch continue to remain at the very heart of all the action. His model of choice for this outing was the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m timepiece, reference number 2201.50, which is a well built and exceptionally reliable model, even at great depths of water. It was a stunning Omega wristwatch which saw him right the way through the movie.

Perhaps one of the most successful films of his stint as Bond, Skyfall saw Daniel Craig wear a variety of different classy watches, but the one which stood out the most is another Omega watch. The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m makes an appearance in this film but is now outfitted with a titanium case. This makes it a model comprised of something even stronger than stainless steel, and something which survived his apparent death, resurrection and trip to Scotland.

The latest film in the James Bond Franchise, the Omega series of watches where again at the helm of accessories. Bond’s watch of choice was the Omega Seamaster 300 Spectre, which was designed in such a way that it blended in spectacularly with the theme and look of the film. It’s also a nice nod to the Seamaster watches sported by Sean Connery in the 1960s, and helps to bring the Bond universe together, especially when we remember that regarding a rebooted Bond, Craig and Connery are only a few years apart regarding their service as OO agents.
