First created by OMEGA in 1957, the Seamaster 300 represents one of the most famous watches in underwater history.
As part of that family, the Seamaster 300 was launched as OMEGA’s first-ever professional divers’ watch. The design was notable for its black dial, luminous indexes and large hands, which made it very simple-to-use and easy-to-read in a variety of conditions.
The new 41 mm timepieces will be delivered with thinner bezels, slim inner frame has given the dial a larger display. A slightly slimmer Seamaster 300 thanks to a new domed sapphire crystal.
Perhaps the most noticeable changes can be found on the new dials. For this, OMEGA has utilised a sandwich concept, including a base layer with Super-LumiNova and a second plate over the top with cuttings for the recessed hour markers and numerals. OMEGA has also reintroduced the popular lollipop central seconds hand on cleaner dial, which features only the OMEGA logo and Seamaster 300 name. There are no longer any references to the movement (these have instead been moved to the caseback).
The Bronze Gold Model
Bronze has a long and traditional history with ocean exploration, having been used in nautical applications such as boat propellers and diving helmets.
Used for the entire case and buckle, the one-of-a-kind alloy is enriched with noble elements such as 37.5% gold, hallmarked as 9K, as well as palladium and silver, to create a unique colour which sits exactly between the brand’s 18K Moonshine™ gold and 18K Sedna™ gold.
As well as featuring a soft pink hue, during wear it offers incomparable corrosion resistance without verdigris-oxidation, and will therefore age slowly and retain its natural and beautiful patina over a longer period of time. For fans of bronze watches and innovative materials, this is great news!
CONSTELLATION SMALL SECONDS
The iconic look we know today, with the distinguishing claws and half moon facets, first arrived in 1982, and has since become one of the world’s most recognised watch designs.
Most noticeably, a special symmetry has been given to these new Small Seconds 34 mm watches. Along with a round date window at 6H, OMEGA has used incremental diamonds for the hour markers, which have been placed in 18K gold holders, and arranged by size around the dial.
DE VILLE TRÉSOR POWER RESERVE
For those who love the classics, these are timepieces that must be seen.
Perhaps the most interesting aspect of this new Trésor 40 mm collection design is the addition of new subdials. On all watches, this includes a Small Seconds display at 6H, while some models also feature a Power Reserve display at 12H.
SEAMASTER AQUA TERRA
Time is precious on OMEGA’s latest Aqua Terra timepieces, which feature hour markers in diamonds or rubies. Perfect for women who like to be dazzled on the hour, every hour.
With these exquisite 34 mm watches, checking the time is a feast for the eyes. The latest models include beautiful wave-embossed dials, which evoke the gentle rippling surface of the ocean. Dial encircled with 11 marquise-cut diamond or ruby hour markers.
SEAMASTER DIVER 300M BLACK BLACK
To ensure every part of the watch blends in beautifully, OMEGA’s watchmakers created case 43.5 mm, buckle, crown, helium escape valve and caseback in black ceramic [ZrO2].
Although the new Black Black is the colour of night, its dial is easy-to-read at all hours. To ensure visibility without spoiling the Diver’s overall aesthetic, OMEGA has introduced anthracite Super-LumiNova to the diving scale, the black PVD indexes and skeleton hands, and dot at 12H. Although these essential markers all glow in different colours in the dark, the anthracite turns them dark-grey in daylight.
For the first time, OMEGA has laser-ablated almost every detail on the black ceramic [ZrO2] dial. From the iconic waves to the minute track, wording and even the OMEGA symbol, the details have been crafted in positive relief from just one single piece. The same positive relief style can be found on the diving scale of the unidirectional bezel.
