Let’s discover the latest films which have put the spotlight on major jewelry and watchmaking brands for our greatest pleasure.
James Bond and Omega
On the occasion of the last James Bond, To die can wait (No Time To Die), the Omega brand unveiled a new 007 wristwatch.
It is the superb Seamaster Diver 300M Edition 007 which accompanies our hero on the screen. Launched in 1993, the Diver 300M has built its reputation among great divers in history and style icons, but also on the wrist of the most famous British spy. For the design of this Bond edition, Omega worked closely with Daniel Craig and the producers of the film. Daniel Craig says: “We thought that the lightness of the watch would be an essential criterion for a soldier like 007. I also suggested adding some retro-inspired details and colors to give the watch a unique style. I find the result amazing. ” The case of each 42mm watch was crafted from grade 2 titanium, as was the strap, closed with an innovative adjustable buckle. This unique material, particularly light and resistant, is ideal for secret agents looking for comfort on a mission.
Adventurers who choose this Seamaster Diver 300M Edition 007 will be able to embark on new adventures on the arm of a James Bond Girl or Lashana Lynch, new Omega ambassador, who wears a 38mm Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M Master Chronometer!

Inspired by Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata, the Arpeggia collection features brilliant-cut diamonds on micropaved lines, like musical notes on a score. Among the other creations on screen, the Cupid necklace from the Diamond Legends collection by De Beers, a modern version of the diamond line. The Swan Lake necklace in white and yellow gold pays homage to the beauty of Tchaikovsky’s ballet, while the Assana necklace brings to life the legend who saw diamonds as shards of stars fallen to Earth.
