To honour the 50th anniversary of Goldfinger, Omega created a one-of-a-kind Seamaster Aqua Terra in an explosion of 18K yellow gold.  The special timepiece sold for 106,000 CHF (over R 1,200,00.00) on 17 September 2014 as part of an online auction that celebrated the renowned James Bond film.  The winning bid was nearly eight times the estimated value of the watch!

The Seamaster Aqua Terra has a discreet 38.5 mm 18K yellow gold case and is presented on a matching bracelet.  The dial has also been created from 18K yellow gold.  In a subtle nod to the world’s most celebrated secret agent, there is a counterweight on the central seconds hand crafted in the form of the iconic 007 logo.

The caseback that equips this unique Seamaster Aqua Terra features an 18K yellow gold rotor and bridge, distinguishing it from the 18K red gold normally associated with the movement.  The special presentation box whose design was inspired by the U.S. Bullion Depository building at Fort Knox.
