Tell time like 007

It won't eject you from a plane, but the limited-edition "Quantum of Solace" watch by Omega can plunge 2,000 feet under the sea.

The tweaked Seamaster Planet Ocean watch is the latest in a series of Omega watches released in conjunction with James Bond films.

"Bond is a very unique character," says Omega global brand president Stephen Urquhart. "He's the modern man's dream"

The watch, which Bond wears in the movie, has a black dial with a textured surface that mimics the grip of Bond's Walther PPK pistol, and a 007 logo is engraved on the buckle of the stainless steel bracelet. The words "Quantum of Solace" are engraved, discreetly, of course, on the inside of the sapphire crystal and there's blood-red tip on the second hand.

Omega is releasing a total of 5,007 of these watches.
