5.0 out of 5 stars Superb update on the classic Bond Seamaster, 16 July 2013
This review is from: Omega Men's Steel Bracelet & Case Automatic Blue Dial Analog Watch 212.30.41.20.03.001 (Watch)
The original incarnation of this watch was launched in 1995 for Goldeneye. It was available in quartz and automatic (self winding) versions until about 2007 when the co-axial version was launched. This was very similar to the original but with a slightly more modern watch movement. It used the same case, dial, bezel and bracelet.

In 2012 Omega launched this current model which has a large number of improvements over the original version. As of 2013 both are for sale in the shops but this newer model is the one to go for.

Changes include:

- Ceramic bezel. This basically makes the watch scratchproof. The metal bezel on the older model chipped and dented very easily and it is a very expensive repair as the whole bezel has to be changed by Omega.
- New Coaxial 2500D movement. This really is an in-house movement which when you are paying this much money is very desirable. It means that the Co-Axial movement in this watch is designed by and made by Omega for use in Omega watches only. It will not turn up in a Ball or Tag or Longines.
- Uprated bracelet with screw links and a smaller clasp which is more comfortable.
Glossy blue (or black) dial looks a lot more modern than the old wave dial.

Source - I have owned all three incarnations of this watch and this is the best by far.

I have a Seamaster and agree with all that has been said. However a correction. The co-axial movement was originally an English invention by the master watchmaker and inventor George Daniels who died in 2011. His Co-Axial Escapement was the first practical new mechanical watch escapement invented for mass market in 250 years. Omega purchased the patent for the Co-Axial escapement in 1993 and went on to develop it for their own watches.
