The Commander Watch

From Omega -

If I am being completely honest, I have not given the rat's proverbial derrière about blatantly co-branded Omega watches with the 007 iconography blatantly licensed.  I am a bit of a purist and the extra branding is a bit more than I am typically interested in.

Having said that, this new release from Omega is a very pleasant departure.  

Available in stainless steel (above) and a yellow gold model (below).

And a fairly clever bit of packaging -

The case measures 41 mm in diameter and is of stainless steel.  Unidirectional rotating bezel, and helium release valve at 10 o'clock.  The steel model is "limited" to a mere 7,007 pieces...

Here are the pertinents for the steel model, straight from Biel/Bienne-
