A Picture of James Bond's New Official Watch in SKYFALL: Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 38.5mm

The following is a picture (sourced from WatchUSeek user Muddy250) of a new 38.5mm Aqua Terra with a gray-blue dial which is believed to be the watch that will be worn by Daniel Craig in his portrayal of James Bond in the upcoming movie Skyfall:

It seems to correspond with images of Craig's wrist on the Skyfall set, in which he appears to be wearing a non-dive-bezel Omega with a blue dial:

Also matches the nice blue hue of the watch he wears in this publicity shot:

The scoop from WUS moderator/sponsor Dimer (before the post was removed due to Omega's PR embargo):

The official Bond watch is a 38.5mm AT with a blue dial. Reference number is/will be Price is EUR 4.050,- (incl 19% VAT). This is the watch he wears in the movie. When the movie comes out you can expect a limited edition Planet Ocean 42mm. It has a textured dial (lines) and at '7' it has the 007 logo. It is very small and not very noticeable compared to any other 007 limited. It will get reference number and will be priced at EUR 4.760,- (incl VAT). I have not had a chance to look at the caseback, I had the watch in my hands for a few seconds before it was taken away ;). Please note that the prices can change before they come out, but these are the price I have now. 

My take: it's a beautiful watch and a better suit partner than the Planet Ocean that Craig wore in Casino Royale and, presumably (as I never got around to seeing it), Quantum of Solace.  If only there were a no-date version, I'd call it Omega's Rolex Explorer I killer.
