There’s a part of in us all that wants to be the James Bonds from Golden Eye. The self-winding, chronometer grade Omega Seamaster Proffessional Diver Co-Axial Chronograph Automatic 184.108.40.206.01.001 Men’s Watch, while won’t gift you the license to kill humans, but certainly you can do so to the fashion trend around and emerge as a winner!
Things you’ll find:
i. A Co-Axial Escapement movement:
The caliber 3330 is an Omega-enhanced ETA 7753. Omega’s additions to the existing caliber are a column-wheel chronograph switch; the Co-Axial escapement and a silicon balance spring. That’s how Omega chooses to fight magnetic fields, folks.
ii. A helium escape valve (@ 10’o clock):
To save your watch from popping its insides out after coming out from the great depths in a diving bell. The pressurized chambers contain Helium, which has the smallest of gas atoms and easily go past the seals and the O-rings. Moving out of the pressurized chamber builds up a pressure difference, which can be avoided by only releasing the trapped gas.
iii. A domed, anti-reflective scratch resistant crystal:
Magnifies the contents of the dial and also looks classy.
iv. A polished, black, ceramic unidirectional rotating bezel:
Reduces weight, increased toughness; dent-proof.
v. A clasp diving-suit extension:
For the tight grip over wet suits.
vi. COSC certification:
That’s what gives the watch its chronometer standard.

What’s so special about it?
The spirit of 007 lives in the Omega Seamaster Professional Planet Ocean
Chronograph Automatic 126.96.36.199.01.001 Men’s Watch! And the Bond factor aside, it is a stellar collection of refinements, which gives it more prominence than just being a timepiece shown on the silver screen. It is as timeless as Hollywood's longest-running action franchise.
However, it is the chronograph that makes the real difference. Not that a chronograph is the king of complications, but because it provides the simple pleasures that only a commanding mechanical stopwatch mechanism can deliver. It’s kind of addictive; so much that you end up measuring even the coffee break durations amidst a board meeting. It’s kinda the feel of counting down to the moment of detonation for the Golden Eye!
