Inside James Bond’s Next-Level Omega Seamaster Collection

When James Bond is caught in an avalanche, his life is saved by an inflatable ski jacket, while his Omega’s LED lights bring welcome relief in the darkness.

This Seamaster has two crucial (and fantastical) modifications, each of which borrows from the watch’s actual features: a detonator pin replacing the helium release valve, which is controlled by twisting the bezel, and a laser, activated by pressing on the dial, that shoots from the crown.
