Daniel Craig Puts Watch Enthusiasts On High Alert Flexing A New Unseen White Dial Omega Speedmaster


“The idea of regretting not doing this seemed insane to me. Sitting in the corner at a bar at age 60, saying: 'I could've been Bond. Buy me a drink.' That's the saddest place I could be. At least now at 60 I can say: 'I was Bond. Now buy me a drink.” Daniel Craig


At A Glance

  • All the stars sparkled at the recent Planet Omega event last month in the Big Apple with many taking to the red carpet including Nicole Kidman, Cindy Crawford and Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra wearer Andrew Garfield
  • Naturally, Mr. Bond himself Daniel Craig was in attendance sporting a real head turner…and spinner for many enthusiasts to decipher which Speedmaster Professional he was rocking.
  • Many believed it to be similar to a 2020 Tokyo Edition model complete with black subdials while many plumped for the Canopus Moonwatch 3861 in white gold.
  • A mystery that could put Hercule Poirot into submission, the dial appears to have “Speedmaster” text daubed in red among other mysterious unidentified characteristics like black hands and a creamy white lume.
  • Skullduggery of the highest order, in keeping with his spy-like demeanour, this potentially new reveal for 2024 is perhaps the first time this new watch has been spotted.
  • With the New Year ticking closer and closer, we have not seen a white dial Speedmaster Pro for a while, but this new non-panda version seems to have everyone second guessing thanks to its licence to thrill.


007 And Omega


Daniel Craig, the renowned British actor, has become synonymous with the Omega brand through his association with the iconic Seamaster watches. As the brand ambassador, Daniel Craig has brought a sense of sophistication, style, and ruggedness to the brand.

One of the most notable collaborations between Daniel Craig and the Biel giant is the creation of the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M model specifically for his portrayal of James Bond in the 007 films. This watch has become an iconic symbol of both the character and the company, founded in 1903.

As worn for many decades by Prince William after being gifted it by his late mother Princess Diana, The Omega Seamaster Diver 300M reflects the timeless elegance and adventurous spirit shared by Daniel Craig and James Bond. We like its classic design with exceptional functionality, making it a reliable companion for any situation. Fitted with a stainless steel case, durable ceramic bezel and helium escape valve, 300 metre water resistance is not too shabby either.

Sure it’s not the mammoth 1200m Seamaster Ploprof with a signature monobloc case. But the dial of the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M is designed for optimal legibility, even in challenging environments. The iconic wave pattern, inspired by the sea, adds a unique touch to the overall aesthetic. Luminescent hands and hour markers ensure easy readability in low-light conditions.

Equipped with the Master Chronometer Caliber 8800 movement, it is known for impeccable precision and anti-magnetic properties. This movement has undergone rigorous testing to meet the highest standards of accuracy and reliability, exceeding industry norms.

Through his collaboration with Omega, Daniel Craig has not only showcased the brand's commitment to quality and craftsmanship but demonstrated his close, personal affinity for timepieces that embody both strength and elegance.

The former Layer Cake actor has been seen out and about sporting a number of different Speedmaster Professional watches and is the proud owner of a coveted Speedy Tuesday from 2017. 

In No Time To Die from 2021, the last James Bond movie he appeared in, Craig sported The Omega Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition, which, like some fine wines, is the perfect melange of new and vintage worlds. The old school aesthetics come in the shape of the matte brown dial with a contemporary titanium case. Perfect for hardcore dive nerds, make a splash around the pool or in the boardroom with its impressive water resistance of 300 metres.

As rare as a dodo or a Richard Mille RM018 Boucheron Tourbillon, this rare edition is a highly coveted and illustrious timepiece launched specifically for the Italian sector. 

Marking 40 years of the Speedy and nicknamed the Albino Speedmaster, it holds a special place in the hearts of enthusiasts and ardent collectors. This limited edition became an instant sensation due to its unique and distinctive design elements combined with the exceptional quality and performance that Omega is renowned for.

The Albino Edition takes inspiration from the iconic series, which has been the brand's flagship model since its introduction in 1957. Known for its association with NASA space missions and being the first timepiece worn on the moon, the Speedmaster Professional has gained a sterling reputation for its durability, first rate levels of accuracy, and immense reliability.

What sets the Albino Edition apart from its counterparts is its unique dial colour scheme. Instead of the traditional black dial with white sub-dials, this edition features a panda dial scheme with white dial and black sub-dials. This striking contrast creates a clean and sophisticated look, making it a highly sought-after collector's item.

The 42mm stainless steel case of the Albino Edition is both robust and elegant. It is equipped with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, ensuring maximum visibility and protection. Featuring a manual-winding movement, it offers the wearer a more engaging and traditional watch experience.

In conclusion, the Albino Edition chronograph showcases Omega's dedication to creating exceptional timepieces that are both aesthetically pleasing and functionally robust.

An air of mystery to rival the next Swatch collab surrounds our next best Speedy pick, the aptly titled Speedmaster Alaska Project. Though this one has no linkage or connection to America’s 49th state, which entered its realm on January 3rd 1959. Boasting 3 million lakes and more than 100,000 glaciers, this icy cool Alaskan contender is shrouded in fog.

Measuring 39.5mm, The Omega Speedmaster Alaska Project took its cues from a series of tests conducted in the 1970s by NASA to improve the watches performance in extreme conditions, This was carried out specifically for use in space missions.

The Alaska Project featured several modifications from the standard Speedmaster Professional. It had a unique white dial with a red aluminium outer case to improve readability in low light conditions. However, this model had a larger, wider arrow-shaped red second hand that featured on the Moonswatch Mission To Mars, making it easier to read the chronograph function. The red case material is another throwback to the heat-shield cases from the Alaska Project novelties some five decades ago.

Additionally, the Alaska Project Edition featured a removable anodized aluminium outer case that protected the watch from temperature extremes. The case could be reversed to provide either a shiny reflective surface for thermal protection or a matte surface for optimal legibility in bright sunlight. Powered by the 1861 manual winding movement and complete with 18 jewels, this is as elusive as Lord Lucan.

Although it never went into production, some prototypes were created and used by NASA during simulated space missions to test their performance. In 2008, the brand unveiled a limited edition run with a nod to the Alaska II prototypes, equipped with their special heat shields made from aluminium.

Today, these versions are highly sought after by collectors for their ultimate rarity and historical significance.

Although not the star of our show thanks to the black subdials, unlike Daniel Craig’s all white dial wonder, The Omega Speedmaster Tokyo Edition are shown in not one but five special versions.

With a nod to the postponed Tokyo Olympics which was postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak, these watches were designed in order to commemorate the brand's connection to Japan. The watch has a 42mm stainless steel case with a ceramic bezel and a matching dial symbolising the colours of the Olympic rings with bezels in blue, green, yellow, black and red with inspiration taken from streets of Tokyo. 

Housing a textured surface that evokes the city's bustling energy. The sub-dials also have a contrasting tinge of colour, which adds a pop of colour to the overall design. For more than 80 years, The Swiss brand has been a star maker as Official Timekeeper at the Olympic Games, participating on more than 27 occasions.

Their trusted and close knit partnership is instilled in this highly coveted collection of five watches where speed and extreme reliability go hand in hand. As consistent as Manchester City’s consecutive Premier League titles, we like the stepped dial, baton hour markers as well as the dots and hands which are stuffed like a Christmas turkey with enough lume to sink a ship.

Protecting the movement is a stainless steel case back engraved with "Tokyo 2020" and the logo for the Olympic games. In addition, the dials enjoy a classic "moonwatch" design with three sub-dials for measuring elapsed time. It also has luminous hour markers and hands for easy reading in low-light conditions.

The Tokyo Edition of the Speedmaster is powered by Omega's Co-Axial Calibre 1861 movement, which is a self-winding chronograph movement that offers high precision and reliability.

One of the standout features of the Tokyo Edition is its unique dial design, not to mention stainless steel bracelet with ceramic centre link. As a result, it alludes to a more modern look giving it a luxury sports watch edge. It also includes a special Tokyo Edition engraving on the caseback, which further highlights its limited edition status.

Overall, this Tokyo Edition is a stylish and collectable piece that pays homage to the brand's connection to Japan. Its unique design and high-quality craftsmanship make it a desirable choice for connoisseurs and collectors alike.




We have been rattling our horological brains at Chrono Hunter Towers to determine what special edition or which Speedy this could be. Like a controversial VAR decision, we have analysed this clip over and over again of Daniel Craig attending the Planet Omega exhibit, running through all the options. However, it’s like plucking predictions or the lottery numbers from thin air as it could be all manner of new models. From the white dialled Seamaster Diver 300M to the White Side Of The Moon…we are none the wiser. 

This has somewhat boiled down into a guessing game of timekeeping skill and deduction to rival a game of Cluedo. So let’s take a look at the evidence. Was it Colonel Mustard with the Aquanaut in the drawing room? Perhaps it was Professor Plum with the Rolex Daytona in the library? Or could it be Daniel Craig with the white dial Speedmaster at Planet Omega, New York?

It’s a real dilly of a pickle if ever there was one. What we can see from the images has sent the internet and forums into overdrive the likes of which we have never seen before. Nonetheless, we can surmise the following.

This crafty chronograph will most likely be a surefire seller whenever it debuts. With more guesses than Who Shot Mr. Burns, all we will say is this is no doubt going to make a welcome  addition to 2024. Are you ready to bring out the Bollinger with lashings of smoked salmon
