Omega 2220.80.00 Review
Now you’ll be able to execute all manner of adventures and still look stylish whether you do number crunching in your boardroom or feel excited at the wizard of odds table. Set a course for adventure with this classic Omega Seamaster 300M stainless steel men’s automatic chronometer watch, part of Omega’s James Bond collection.
A blue colored dial and bezel with silver stainless steel band can make you say “I am bond, James bond!” Omega 2220.80.00 Seamaster is powered by Omega’s break-through Co-Axial escapement. The Co-Axial escapement system reduces sliding friction compared with the lever escapement and thus ensures greater accuracy over time.
Automatics are built with many moving parts and require no electronics to run. Therefore the quality of the parts in the piece can lead to a very long. Automatics do not have to be serviced nearly as often as quartz watches.
This is a very good thing because the watch case isn’t opened as much, which means the water resistance will be at much lower risk for having any issues during the lifetime of the watch.
“Dial” to die for!
First of all, nobody can ignore the striking blue colored bezel as it’s made beautifully noticeable. This bezel frames a wavy blue dial that includes luminous dotted hour markers, luminous-tipped skeleton hands, and a date window at 3 o’clock.
This highly accurate, self-winding Omega watch is also a great diving watch, with water resistance to 300 meters (984 feet) and a helium escape valve, which allows helium to escape from inside the watch when the watch is worn in highly pressurized environments.
The large silver rhodium-plated case measures 41mm wide (1.61 inches) and it’s complemented by a handsome stainless steel bracelet band.
Other features include a 48-hour power reserve and scratch-resistant and glare-proofed domed sapphire crystal. Sapphire crystal is the second strongest mineral on earth, after diamond. Of course, the sapphire crystal used is synthetic, scratch proof, is more resistant to breakage than mineral and there’s no angle distortion.
Steal the look with steel “Band”!
Stainless steel is used as the material for band with fold-Over Clasp with push button safety. Chain pattern looks classic but has no gaps in between. Watch is a masterpiece so its need to be secured with a strong and stylish band and this do the needful.

This is the “James Bond” watch and the name itself says it all. Other than all the advanced features, the best part is Omega 2500 caliber automatic movement, which has been certified as a chronometer by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Control).
To achieve this highly coveted certification, the movements are subjected to numerous tests over a period of 15 consecutive days and nights, in five positions and at three different temperatures. This feature loaded watch comes with two big names- omega and James bond.
