SEAMASTER 300 BRONZE GOLD
A HUE FROZEN IN TIME
To protect from an undesirable color-change to verdigris, the Bienne-based watchmaker enriched bronze with precious metal to create an oxidation-resistant alloy.
For over 60 years now, the Seamaster 300 has been a faithful companion for ocean-going, seafaring adventurers and enthusiasts. From the very first time this dive watch was unveiled back in 1957, it has always boasted features indispensable for ensuring underwater excursions are safe. This time round, Omega proposes a highly-appealing stylistic and engineering evolution: the Seamaster 300 Bronze Gold. Its 41 mm-diameter case is crafted in a one-of-a-kind alloy which lends its name to this variation. The material obtained, enriched with 37.5% gold as well as palladium and silver, adorns a warm hue which the brand situates between 18K Moonshine™ gold and 18K Sedna™ gold. This blend of noble elements also gifts it with great resistance to corrosion. In a nutshell, the dial will keep its natural patina over time. On the brown-black sandwich-structured dial, the indexes, the minute tracker, the numerals, all hosting this bronze alloy stand out perfectly to offer optimal readability. The ensemble is encircled by a brown ceramic unidirectional rotating bezel decorated with a vintage Super-LumiNova®-coated diving scale.
The hour and minute hands are driven by the Master Chronometer-certified Omega Co-Axial 8912 caliber. This highly-accurate selfwinding movement delivers a power reserve of 60 hours and also stands out through its ability to resist magnetic fields up to 15,000 gauss.
The Seamaster 300 Bronze Gold is worn on a sturdy brown leather strap clasped by a 9K bronze gold ardillon buckle.
