Omega Auction Seahorse Aqua Terra Gold Watch

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 007 series ‘Golden Finger’, Omega has specially created a unique seahorse series AquaTerra gold watch. It was sold at a high price of CHF 106,000 at an online charity auction.

Since the release of ‘Golden Eye’ in 1995, the Omega Seamaster series has been an important weapon for James Bond, appearing in each step of the 007 series of movies. When the 007 series ‘Golden Finger’ ‘s 50th birthday came, a word emerged in the minds of Omega designers: gold!

This unique watch, commemorating one of the most popular movies in the world, is made of 18K yellow gold. It won a bid of 106,000 Swiss francs on Wednesday’s online auction, and the winning price was close to 8 times the estimate. The result was the most successful in the auction that night, and it was also the one with the largest difference between the final sale price and the valuation.

This Omega Seamaster AquaTerra gold watch has a delicate 38.5mm case in 18K yellow gold and is accompanied by a matching strap. The dial and hands are also made of 18K yellow gold. The hands are luminous, and the time is still legible in the dark. On the counterweight of the golden second hand, the logo of 007 is specially carved, which subtly pays tribute to this world’s most famous special.

The matching of such a special watch movement is naturally also very important. This watch is equipped with an Omega 8501 coaxial movement, which can be clearly seen through the sapphire crystal of the case back. The rotor is also made of 18K yellow gold. This chronograph mechanical movement has extraordinary performance and accuracy, while being resistant to magnetic fields of approximately 15,000 Gauss.

The watch will be housed in a special display box inspired by the American vault in Fort Knox. (Picture / Text Watch House Xiao Sen)
