SEAMASTER DIVER 300M
Going with you on your underwater or urban explorations, Omega’s new version of the Seamaster Diver 300M comes with a more youthful look, while preserving its original personality.
Twenty-five years after its first dive, the Master Diver 300M re-emerged during Baselworld 2018 in 14 new versions, with six made of steel and eight combining gold and steel. What do they have in common? Along with the polished dial decorated with the original wave pattern, they are all now driven by the calibre Master Chronometer 8800 certified by METAS. As a reminder, this title is given by Omega to watches that have already been certified by the COSC and then undergo a series of tests to prove their watertightness and resistance to magnetic fields.
All the other features of diving watches are also present and correct. For the dial, there is optimum readability. The wide, skeleton hour and second hands have been slightly redesigned, while the XL embossed hour markers have a luminescent coating. The helium valve used to change the internal pressure of the case when the diver reaches decompression stops has had a makeover, and is now cone-shaped for easier handling under water. The watch case is still just as sturdy, but is now wider, reaching 42mm. To keep track of immersion time, the bezel is made of ceramic, while the graded scale is made of CeragoldTM or white enamel.
To guarantee more comfort on the wrist, the Seamaster Diver 300M comes with a modified metal strap to make it more user friendly. It features a folding clasp and an extra extension so that it can be adjusted to fit a thick diving suit.
Price: 4,500 EUR (steel strap) – 4,400 EUR (rubber strap) omegawatches.com
