Just position the watch on a different part of the strap. You can place the buckle where you want.

No it doesn’t really work like that. The watch can only sit on a specific bit of the French strap and the hook buckle needs to sit on the flat underside of the wrist as it’s quite broad when fastened. So as a result I have to wear it a little looser than I’d prefer. I tried a Zulu strap too and that was terrifically uncomfortable with yet another metal loop sitting right on the inner corner of my wrist where the veins are. Horrible things.

The Nato is the same: a metal loop sitting on the vein.

I know it has its critics, but I think that's a stunning watch.

Congrats on the purchase  ajb007/martini

This is a higher-res version of the Empire pic. The color of the watch is a little more pronounced here.

Bit of a better shot thanks to the hi-res pic.

Colour scheme reminds me a bit of the black/brown Speedmaster released a few years ago (yes Bond's is obviously a Seamaster).

It’s a lot lighter in colour than that.

Yes I do have eyes Asp   ajb007/wink   I said the colour scheme reminds me a bit of the black/brown Speedmaster, not that the colour is identical to it. Anyway very keen to see Omega's professional shot of the Seamaster when it's released so we can get a proper look at the details!

Asp9mm, does the picture from EMPIRE show the stunt strap or another one (rubber, leather, etc) available along with the Milanese  for sale with the actual watch?

Re: No Time To Die Omega Ltd Editions

It has to be the stunt version of the mesh. Omega isn’t going to just change straps in a Bond film - they’d have a whole new watch to sell ajb007/lol

Are you then all considering this to be same watch as in the earlier photos from Jamaica and London, may I ask?

Re: No Time To Die Omega Ltd Editions

Yes it’s the same watch. Can’t tell from that picture if it’s a stunt or not.  The stunts in this film are far better and more realistic than in previous films, and quite hard to tell apart. The stunt used in the upcoming The Kings Man is amazing, 3D printed metal with real plexiglas and hands.  Not sure if they used the same technique with Bonds watch, as I’ve only seen a hero and rubber stunt to date.

Re: No Time To Die Omega Ltd Editions

Apologies wasn't sure if we had a thread for this ?

My spectre 300 sm has now stopped working since Ive not worn it for a day and didn't use the winder 
I've winded it but its not going , stops after 30 secs roughly
Do i need it serviced or just give it a few days and try again or is there anything else I can do ?
It's 4 years old exactly so seems not great.
Just want some advice from you experts , cheers
Hope you can help

Re: No Time To Die Omega Ltd Editions

I know it's brown and won't be to everyone's taste but I think this watch will look pretty cool and I would consider purchasing were it priced more sensibly and not (I'm guessing) £8K! You could get a new Seamaster and Speedy for that.

I remember the Goldeneye watch being available for £850 in 1995. I know we're comparing different spec, quality, inflation etc. but Omega have just whacked up their prices so high now, these watches are just unobtainable (for me anyway).  And, even if a rich dear old Aunt insisted on buying me one, I would ask politely for a Submariner and £2K towards a nice holiday..! ajb007/biggrin

I love my Planet Ocean and enjoy wearing it without worrying excessively about damage or loss, but I wouldn't feel comfortable wearing £8K on my wrist. I know that's what we have insurance for, but still..

I’d give it about 20 full rotations on position 1 of the crown to wind it properly then a few shakes. If it stops, consider taking it to a watchmaker. If this is the first time it’s been flat, that’s odd. Should be able to see the barrels turn through the case back whilst you wind it up.

I'm no expert but I'm not sure a "few shakes" should be welcomed. Automatic movements are really delicate with tiny pieces. A good winding is better a shake....I guess !!

If after 40 winds It’s not working you have a problem.  Needs servicing.

Shaking it won’t harm it. They aren’t that delicate. They’re quite tough.

The reason I bring up shaking is because I’ve had a watch where the hand wind has stopped working. Shaking to increase the power reserve would prove whether this is the case on his omega. It’s normally on a watch winder according to this man. You could diagnose the problem that way before taking it to a specialist.

As for “shaking not being welcomed” There are £50 Seiko 5’s out there with no winding feature that rely on shaking when the power reserves are depleted and they cope fine. Costing 100x more, if the omega can’t deal with a light shake to spin the rotor then it’s a fake. A bad fake. I’ve seen omegas drop from a two story balcony when a spring bar has failed and they’ve kept perfect accuracy. These are tools. The price and marketing just makes people scared of using them as intended.
