  Time-keeping performance on a COSC Omega Planet Ocean watch was tracked against the US Naval Observatory Master Clock on a running daily average and day-over-day, starting on December 5, 2006, and concluding on January 5, 2007. In total, 31 days were observed.

This model 2907.50.91 (a/k/a 29075091) watch was never worn in a James Bond movie.

However, it shares the same Omega calibre 2500 movement (which is fundamentally what we're assessing in these trackings), case dimensions, and strap as is found in the Omega 2900.50.91 (a/k/a 29005091) reference Seamaster Planet Ocean BIG SIZE worn by Daniel Craig as James Bond 007 in Casino Royale.

The link below provides complete access to all three pages of this report and data.

Note that for any given minute tracked, the second-hand position deviated by as much as three-quarters of a second, revolution after revolution, depending on its position relative to the dial. In other words, this watch could be observed as exactly matching the USNO Master Clock with the second-hand pointing at one number on its dial, and be 0.75 seconds slow (or fast) as it traveled through another position, then exactly matching again as it passed the initial point cited.
