LONDON, November 25, 2022 — The Swiss watchmaker OMEGA has hosted a black-tie celebration in London, with guest of honor Daniel Craig, to mark 60 years of James Bond.

Based on the novels by Ian Fleming, the 25 films produced by EON Productions have laid the foundation for a global cinematic legacy. OMEGA watches have been an essential part of 007’s favorite attire since GoldenEye in 1995, when the Oscar-winning costume designer, Lindy Hemming, equipped 007 with a Seamaster Diver 300M, believing it was the most suitable choice for his British naval background.

With that legacy in mind, OMEGA created a spy-inspired night at a secret location - featuring a dramatic live experience based on the world of James Bond. The occasion was a fitting tribute to 007, complete with movie props and gadgets from Q’s Lab, while a full line-up of James Bond’s OMEGA watches was also on display. In addition, it included two new Seamaster Diver 300M timepieces celebrating the 60th anniversary.

Raynald Aeschlimann, President & CEO of OMEGA, said, “Our partnership with EON Productions and James Bond is unique within watchmaking. It’s a chance to be creative and have fun while highlighting our qualities of style and reliability. We love to bring that partnership to life on nights like this.”

Daniel Craig, who portrayed 007 over five films, was included in the night’s action. The OMEGA ambassador is a great fan of the brand’s watches and said, “It’s been a joy for me to work with OMEGA in all the films since Casino Royale. James Bond is a character who likes the very best of everything, so it’s always made sense that he would wear something as beautiful and trustworthy as an OMEGA.”
