Omega James Bond 007 Aqua Terra 150M Limited Edition
While Rolex may be the watch brand most historically associated with superspy James Bond, Omega has been the official partner of the Bond film franchise since 1995. As a result, there have been quite a few different James Bond Omega watches produced over the years – some in conjunction with new movie releases and some “just because.” In some instances, the watches appear in the movies while in other cases, Omega makes special edition watches that don’t show up on Bond’s wrist but were made with the famous M16 Secret Service agent (and his movies) in mind.
The Omega watch we’re highlighting today was developed in honor of the 2015 James Bond movie, SPECTRE, with Daniel Craig. Keep reading for a comprehensive review of the Omega James Bond “SPECTRE” Aqua Terra 150M Limited Edition.

Brief History of James Bond Omega Watches
With the 1995 release of the GoldenEye film with Pierce Brosnan, Omega announced that it was now the official timepiece of James Bond. It was perfect timing for the brand as it had launched the Seamaster Professional diving watch (now known as the Diver 300M collection) a few years earlier – which thanks to its combination of sporty elegance and robust diving capabilities, proved to be the ideal watch for Bond’s impeccable style and specific job requirements. In fact, much of the early success of the stainless steel and blue-dialed Seamaster Professional 300M watches can be attributed to it being James Bond’s watch over several films spanning the mid-1990s to the mid-2000s.
With every Bond film since 1995, Omega has equipped 007 with a Seamaster watch, whether it be a Diver 300M, Planet Ocean 600M, or Aqua Terra 150M. Here are some of the Omega Seamaster watches that have appeared in James Bond films over the last two-plus decades.
- GoldenEye (1995): Seamaster Professional 300M Quartz ref. 2541.80.00
- Tomorrow Never Dies (1997): Seamaster Professional 300M Chronometer ref. 2531.80.00
- The World Is Not Enough (1999): Seamaster Professional 300M Chronometer ref. 2531.80.00
- D ie Another Day (2002): Seamaster Professional 300M Chronometer ref. 2531.80.00
- Casino Royale (2006): Seamaster Planet Ocean ref. 2900.50.91 and Seamaster Diver 300M ref. 2220.80.00
- Quantum of Solace (2008): Seamaster Planet Ocean ref. 2201.50.50
- Skyfall (2012): Seamaster Planet Ocean ref. 22.214.171.124.01.001 and Aqua Terra ref. 126.96.36.199.03.001
- SPECTRE (2015): Aqua Terra ref. 188.8.131.52.03.003 and Seamaster 300 ref. 184.108.40.206.01.001
- No Time to Die (2022): Seamaster 300 ref. 220.127.116.11.01.001
In addition to the above watches that have appeared in the movies, Omega has also made some commemorative watch models for fans to enjoy. One example is the subject of this article today: the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra James Bond Limited Edition ref. 18.104.22.168.03.004 developed for the release of SPECTRE.
Design: Omega James Bond Seamaster Aqua Terra LE
Made with the most fervent fans of the 007 franchise in mind, Omega applied the James Bond theme liberally to the special edition SPECTRE Omega Aqua Terra ref. 22.214.171.124.03.004.
First of all, on the tip of the yellow seconds hand, there’s a miniature version of the Bond family coat of arms (fun fact: the Bond family motto “Orbis non sufficit” translates to “The World is not Enough”). Furthermore, a closer look at the vibrant blue dial, housed within a 41.5 mm stainless steel case, reveals a repetitive pattern that also takes its design cues from the family shield. The dial is also furnished with a date window at 3 o’clock, and everything on the face of the watch is protected by a sapphire crystal.
Also, just under the “MASTER CO-AXIAL CHRONOMETER” font on the dial, Omega cleverly modified the magnetic resistance-rating label to “15,007 GAUSS” where the last three digits are in reference to Bond’s famous codename. Completing the design of the dial are the matching yellow minute markers on the outer edge, along with luminous tapered indexes and the iconic Omega broad-arrow hour hands.
While the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M James Bond Limited Edition watch comes with a matching stainless steel bracelet, there’s also a blue nylon strap with yellow stitching included in the set that really plays up the colorway of the dial. Naturally, the set comes with a strap-changing tool for easy bracelet switching.
Movement And Functions
If we flip the limited edition SPECTRE watch around, we see the Omega Master Co-Axial Caliber 8507G working away through the sapphire display case-back. Continuing the 007 theme, there’s the visible “James Bond” marking front and center on the rotor. Plus, the movement’s skeletonized oscillating weight has been cut and shaped to resemble a gun barrel (hence the “G” in Caliber 8507G).
Bond branding aside, the self-winding Master Co-Axial Caliber 8507 supplies the Aqua Terra watch with a 60-hour power reserve and boasts a magnetic resistance of 15,007 gauss. There’s also a silicon balance spring on a free-sprung balance, a pair of barrels mounted in series, and an arabesque Geneva waves decorative finish.
The watch’s case-back is engraved with the watch’s unique edition number (limited to 15,007 pieces), as well as other important features such as water resistance (500 feet/150 meters) and magnetic resistance (15,700 gauss).
A Luxury Watch for Omega and 007 Fans
The Seamaster Aqua Terra model from Omega is known to be a solid everyday luxury watch that is easy to wear and love. Its name tells you everything you need to know about the versatility of this Omega watch: aqua for water and terra for earth. Owners of Omega Aqua Terra watches will happily tell you that it’s a fantastic top-tier watch to wear for almost any occasion.
Additionally, this particular James Bond Omega AT edition is an unabashed celebration of the Swiss watchmaker’s partnership with the British literary character. From its punchy blue and yellow dial to its sporty steel case and bracelet to its tailored gun-motif movement, James Bond fans will appreciate all the details that pay homage to 007. It’s important to remember that luxury watches can be fun too.

This classic yet robust timepiece represents a tribute to OMEGA’s rich maritime heritage. The dramatic and easily-recognisable dial design of the OMEGA Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M collection recalls the wooden decks of luxury sailboats.
This model features a sun-brushed and lacquered blue dial decorated with the Teak Concept pattern and a date window at 3 o'clock. A scratch-resistant sapphire crystal protects this unique dial.
The stainless steel 41.5 mm case is presented on a stainless steel bracelet. This certified chronometer is powered by the OMEGA Master Co-Axial calibre 8500 which is resistant to magnetic fields greater than 15,000 gauss and can be seen through the transparent caseback.
The movement is unaffected by exposure to strong magnetic fields, even those greater than 1.5 tesla (15,000 gauss).
Label given to a watch which has undergone precision tests and received a certificate from an official body (COSC).
The day of the month, displayed in a window on a watch dial at the 3 or 6 o’clock position, or within a subdial at 9 o'clock.
Self-locking crown, screwed into the tube of the case, used for highly water resistant divers' watches.
A transparent caseback - frequently made of sapphire - makes it possible to see the movement inside the watch.
This measures the space where a strap or bracelet would be placed.

Stainless steel is certainly the most conventional of watchmaking materials for outer craftsmanship, and offers beauty, strength and affordability. OMEGA uses 316L stainless steel . Known for its corrosion-resistance and high lustre after polishing, this material is often the ideal choice for watches in both daily-use and high-stress situations such as diving and adventure.
To really appreciate the finer details of a timepiece, OMEGA uses synthetic sapphire crystal with a highly scratch-resistant and anti-reflective treatment. Before the machining and finishing processes take place, the sapphire crystals are produced under the Verneuil process, also called flame fusion. It involves the melting of the raw substance using oxyhydrogen flame and the crystallisation of the melted droplets to form a cylinder. Graded 9 on the Mohs-hardness scale (graded 1-10), the resulting sapphire crystals are virtually scratch-proof and very hard, ensuring an unhindered vision at all times.

The advantages of this watch
Superior precision, anti-magnetic, water-resistance, 5-year warranty, less servicing, shock-resistance.
A key component of this timepiece is the Co-Axial escapement, which is able to maintain accuracy over a longer period of time. What’s more, all parts affecting accuracy are produced with non-ferromagnetic materials, ensuring the watch is protected from the strong magnetic fields produced by everyday items.
Our Master Co-Axial Chronometer movements benefit from the Co-Axial escapement, which is able to maintain accuracy over a longer period of time. All parts affecting accuracy are also produced with non-ferromagnetic materials, ensuring that that precision will not be affected by magnetism (up to 15'000 gauss). Each movement is Chronometer-certified according to international standard ISO3159, requiring a precision of -4/+6 second per day, following the tests at the Official Swiss Chronometer Control ( COSC ).
Proprietary anti-magnetic materials
Everyday items such as mobile phones, metal clasps on handbags, laptops, MRI, induction hobs or automatic doors; subject a watch to magnetic fields and can affect its performance. To prevent the risk of permanent deviations of up to several minutes a day we've conceived movements with antimagnetic materials, such as the silicon balance spring, capable of withstanding the highest fields.
To ensure the integrity of our timepieces at depth, not just some but all watches are fully immersed in water and pressure is applied up to the point of the guaranteed water resistance. By submerging each watch in water we have chosen – yet again - to exceed normal testing standards.
In our quest to raise industry standards and push the boundaries of quality, all OMEGA watches are offered with a full 5-year warranty. This customer promise shows the confidence we have in the excellence of our timepieces, and provides extra trust and assurance when choosing your watch.
Expect fewer visits to the service centre. The Co-Axial escapement is designed to reduce friction inside the movement. As a result, less lubrication is needed and hence less servicing. Compared to non-Co-Axial watches, the intervals between getting your watch serviced will be much longer.
During the homologation process, OMEGA watches are tested to the extreme. This phase includes shock examinations, to confirm reliability and to check that its precision is maintained after a severe impact. All OMEGA timepieces are designed to withstand shocks corresponding to a 1-metre drop on a hard wooden floor. For a standard 150g timepiece, this sudden and rapid acceleration is an equivalent force of up to 5,000 G on the watch head.
Movement Calibre OMEGA 8500
Self-winding movement with Co-Axial escapement. Free sprung-balance, 2 barrels mounted in series, automatic winding in both directions. Bridges and the oscillating mass are decorated with exclusive Geneva waves in arabesque.

James Bond 007 Spectre Movie Gets First Watch: Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra > 15,007 Gauss
In anticipation of the new James Bond 007 movie, Spectre , out later this year, Omega , the official watch of James Bond, has debuted a new James Bond-themed timepiece with the limited edition Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra > 15,007 Gauss. Here we have a pleasantly subtle 007 watch based on the wildly popular Omega Aqua Terra > 15,000 that we reviewed here last year. The most distinctive elements of the new limited edition > 15,007 Gauss watch is the special colors as well as the use of the James Bond family coat-of-arms.
The fictional character’s coat-of-arms can be seen from the below screen shot taken from 007: In Her Majesty’s Secret Service . The coat-of-arms is used to tile the blue-colored face of the > 15,007 watch, as well as for the counter-weight of the seconds hand. Also, there is a special automatic rotor design visible through the sapphire crystal caseback on the rear of the watch case.
What made the original Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra > 15,000 Gauss watch special, was that it was the first Omega timepiece to contain the brand’s Master Co-Axial movement parts. This was before Omega called its new anti-magnetic movements “Master Co-Axial” thus the > 15,000 Gauss name. Inside the watch is the now named Omega Master Co-Axial calibre 8507 automatic movement – named as such for its unique rotor (designed to look like a gun barrel). Otherwise the movement is the same as the caliber 8508 in the other Aqua Terra Master Co-Axial collection timepieces.
We do, however, see the return to yellow on the dial, which helped make the original Omega > 15,000 Gauss watch so popular. The steel case of the > 15,007 Gauss watch is 41.5mm wide and comes with a matching steel bracelet. The case has a sapphire crystal over the front and rear of the case, is water resistant to 150 meters, and thanks to the Master Co-Axial component, is extremely resistant to magnetism.
Omega will produce the Seamaster Aqua Terra > 15,007 Gauss watch as a limited edition of 15,007 pieces. That is quite a lot for a limited edition but Omega has time, and time again, seen its James Bond-themed watches prove popular. We look forward to seeing what else Omega watches has in store for the world as the year leads up to the release of 007: Spectre , the 24th James Bond film. Pricing for the ref. 188.8.131.52.03.004 Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra > 15,007 watch is 6,100 Swiss Francs . omegawatches.com
