Larger-than-life film characters beget similarly epic things like mind-blowing cars and other gadgets. Just like the iconic British spy James Bond, whose Omega
Seamaster is widely-known as the official 007 timepiece. It was Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming who was responsible for introducing the Omega Seamaster as Bond’s watch in the 1995 hit, GoldenEye
, the first time Pierce Brosnan
assumed the role. Hemming opines that an Omega Seamaster is perfect for the Bond character, being a naval commander, diver, and a gentleman. First launched in 1948, the Seamaster is the oldest of the watch company’s existing collections; Omega is already a century old that year. Since then, the Omega Seamaster line had indubitably remained as the most popular, sporty, modern, and masculine, aside from being the most affordable of all Omega timepieces.

Omega is available at Schwarzschild's on Alverser Drive and at Short Pump Town Center.
