My 007 arrived

Mar 19, 2020,02:44 AM

Despite the fact that I have to canceled the entire HK-Geneva trip due to CoVid-19, it's safer to be at home than risking life to go there for whatever I could buy. Found this 007 inside the glass display in a boutique in HK, and because business is bad, I took her home with a friendly discount as well. They told me it does come with the mesh bracelet but this original Nato strap was put on for show as an option to buy should someone purchase the mesh bracelet watch. He also explained one cannot buy the Nato strap with watch only, all watches come with the mesh bracelet. Never mind, the overall package looks good, lightweight and a non limited edition 007 for a change. BTW, this is my very first Omega 007... I think I prefer this Nato strap than the mesh bracelet...

I hope everyone stay safe at home and pray for this CoVid-19 to end soon... Cheers to all.. Ian

Congratulations. One of nicest Omegas released recently.

Great, not so visible innovations in this model beside good look: low case profile, case back fixing system and new mesh (titanium) complex bracelet are definitely worth mentioning. Wear it in good health.

First time here

And there is the Bond special edition. The first member who post about it. I am a leather and rubber fan, so i am not the man for this Bond watch. But it looks good, and it is possible to put on a rubber strap who looks really good. So i can still go on d... 

It is a bit kinky

I like the faux patina and softer colours of the indices and numerals on the bezel.

I have to say I too thought the mesh bracelet gave the watch a great overall look. Itโ€™s nice to have the option of both, gives you two very different watches. Enjoy it.

Huge congrats! Thatโ€™s indeed the nicest omega released so far!

The glass looks super domed as well ๐Ÿ˜ I hope you wear it in the best of health and with much passion! Best regards, Laurent

Congratulations ๐Ÿฅณ...

I liked the PO edition...but I think I like this one more..The mesh bracelet is there arenโ€™t overt โ€œ007โ€ references on the dial...a little hokey IMHO. Also like the master chronometer rating...ENJOY!!!

No Date! ๐Ÿ‘ [nt]

What a fun watch to have.

Congratulations Ian!

Itโ€™s a very nice watch! Is the bezel insert brown? Wow! Thanks for sharing. Renรฉ

Yes it is [nt]

Congratulations, Ian!

The combination with that strap is perfect! Enjoy your new catch, Alex

Titanium . . .

 By: Dr No : March 19th, 2020-16:57
. . . is worth its weight . . . . . . in gold. Figuratively speaking, of course. ;-) Tried on the titanium Ploprof when it was introduced and came close to buying one until Omega announced the 60th anniversary Rail. If I had to do it all over again, maybe...  

My OB also called to say it's here but I declined for now....since this is not limited.

 By: Clueless_Collector : March 19th, 2020-18:56
Also mainly due to all the uncertainties going on, I'm saving my funds unless something extremely desirable shows up. Congratulations to a nice edition SM300, very alluring watch.

Nice remarks & comments

 By: happymsp : March 19th, 2020-23:39
Thanks all for your thoughts. I am planning to get alternative straps for the watch, the Nato is beautiful and I prefer waterproof leather strap, any comments..?

New OEM strap

 By: happymsp : March 22nd, 2020-23:11
The NATO strap looks good but with hot Summer coming, I went and bought this OEM leather with rubber backing for the new 007... The red stitching matches the red Seamaster word. ...  

Perfect match! . . .

 By: Dr No : March 23rd, 2020-18:10
. . . as they say, the strap makes the watch . . .

Thanks [nt]

Mesh look

 By: happymsp : March 26th, 2020-02:59
Perfect fit, now I have alternatives to fit the 007 No Time to Die watch. I, myself prefer the vintage leather but for Summer hot weather, the mesh bracelet is perfect. ...
