SEAMASTER DIVER TITANIUM TANTALUM LIMITED EDITION
THE OBJECT OF EVERYONE’S DESIRE
If you haven’t experienced raptures of the deep, opt for a less perilous intoxication with this limited edition which has a unique composition: three rare and sophisticated materials.
Unveiled in 1993, the Seamaster Diver 300M stands out through its ability to explore the underwater depths. Its helium valve, easy-to-read luminescent hands and index markers, 300-meter water-resistant case, unidirectional bezel and screw-in crown make this a true divers’ watch. During its launch, Omega used a material with a blue-gray tone rarer than gold: tantalum. Harder than steel and extremely resistant to corrosion, it is however difficult to work, and can be a true ordeal for some! Cast aside despite its attributes, this metal was reintroduced into production in this 2500-piece limited edition Seamaster Diver 300M Titanium Tantalum. The bezel is therefore in tantalum and tops a case back made this time of titanium. SednaTM gold, an alloy combining gold, copper, and palladium, has also been added to reinforce this pleasing aesthetic identity.
Inside the 42 mm case is a decidedly contemporary caliber. The self-winding Master Chronometer 8806 movement is hailed for its performance (a power reserve of 55 hours) and meets the demanding criteria established by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS). It is also capable of resisting magnetic fields up to 15,000 gauss without impairing its function. Turning the timepiece over reveals its oscillating weight through the sapphire case back.
The Seamaster Diver 300M Titanium Tantalum comes with a strap combining the three materials.
