Don’t look now 007, but Omega has launched the 25th anniversary of the Seamaster Diver with a brand new collection slightly shrunken to 42mm and including this novel mix of titanium tantalum and red gold. The wave effect dial of the original piece reruns, albeit now laser engraved onto an enamel dial. Otherwise this watch would make a perfect partner to Daniel Craig 23 years after it debuted on Bond’s wrist. The lack of a date (a sign of a real tool watch) confers caliber 8806 status on its Metas-tested “grand chronometer” movement.
OMEGA first introduced the Seamaster 300 in 1957 – it was a watch designed especially for divers and professionals who worked underwater.
More than half a century later, the timepiece makes a comeback in a completely upgraded and enhanced form, ready for a new generation of adventurers. This Seamaster 300 has a sand-blasted blue dial with rhodium-plated hands coated with “vintage” Super-LumiNova. The polished ceramic bezel ring has a Liquidmetal™ diving scale.
The 41 mm brushed and polished grade 5 titanium case is presented on a matching bracelet. A transparent caseback makes it possible to see the anti-magnetic OMEGA Master Co-Axial calibre 8400 within.
