It goes without saying that so far as dive watches are concerned, OMEGA are one of the finest watchmakers in the market and this has never been more admirably illustrated than with the new collection of Seamaster Diver 300M Watches which are both effortlessly sophisticated and supremely robust. Enjoying immense popularity since 1993, the Seamaster Diver 300m watches and they have just celebrated their 25th anniversary with a full makeover from the inside out. The original design and ocean spirit are still there, but now with advanced materials and updates in every model.
The OMEGA Seamaster Diver 300M Watches are now sized at some 42 mm, with every design detail being thoroughly rethought and reimagined. This includes a new ceramic bezel with the diving scale in Ceragold™ or white enamel. On the inside, the watches include the Master Chronometer Calibre 8800 movement, which instantly takes the collection into a higher realm of precision, performance and magnetic resistance.
Diver Precision and Durability
It is the dial of this latest iteration of the OMEGA Seamaster Diver 300m watches that really sets them apart and they are crafted from ceramic and are available in black, blue or PVD chrome colour. The immensely popular wave pattern has been reintroduced to this latest release (and they’re now laser-engraved) and the indexes have been raised and filled with Super-LumiNova. Even the skeleton hands have been subtly reshaped with this release to give it a whole new aesthetic that is sure to appeal to horology aficionados.
The OMEGA Seamaster Diver 300m has loads of excellent details but one of the most impressive is the helium escape valve. For the new models, the valve has been given a conical shape and has been patented by OMEGA with an ingenious technology that allows it to be operated underwater. When you turn the watch over it reveals a wave-patterned edge on the caseback, as well as sapphire crystal, through which you can see the METAS-approved Master Chronometer Calibre 8800 movement which, needless to say, is accuracy incarnate.
There are a total of 14 new Diver 300M models, which includes six in stainless steel and eight in a mix of stainless steel and gold. Each model is presented on an integrated black or blue rubber strap, or a traditional metal bracelet (with a new ergonomic design and a patented extendable fold-over rack-and-pusher with diver extension). You seldom come across quality quite as tangible as that from OMEGA and this latest series of dive watches are going to be the ideal candidate for your next accessory when you head into the deep blue.
