The latest Omega Seamaster has one of the coolest features we’ve ever seen on a watch.
You can use the caseback to play the iconic 007 James Bond opening scene.
The watch in question is the latest iteration of an Omega best-seller, the Seamaster.
Aptly called the Seamaster 60 Years of James Bond, it has a sizeable 42 mm case made of stainless steel, paired with a mesh bracelet.

The watch is water resistant up to 300 meters, which means it can be used by professional divers.
Having said that, the caseback is the real star of the show here.
At the center of the caseback, you’ll find a small ring that can be used to play the iconic 007 intro.
Officially known as the ‘gun barrell sequence’, the James Bond intro has been included in every 007 movie since the 1960s.
It features James Bond walking, turning and then shooting directly at the camera.
It’s a nice touch, and collectors might appreciate the fact that it’s located on the back of the watch.
That way, they can sport a ‘normal’ Seamaster and then showcase the quirky 007 gimmick only when – or if – they want.
Omega and the James Bond 007 franchise began their collaboration in 1995 with the film GoldenEye, the first 007 movie to star Pierce Brosnan as James Bond.
Daniel Craig replaced Pierce Brosnan for the 2006 film Casino Royale and of course he’s worn an Omega in Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, Spectre and No Time To Die.
Speaking of which, the Seamaster 300 that Craig wore in No Time To Die, fetched more than $276,000 at Christie’s earlier this year.
As for this one, it is available from the company’s website for €8,500 – or $8,900.
