Favourite design elements of the Omega Seamaster Diver watch will depend on what you intend the watch to be worn for. For some it may be a case of needing a watch to keep tack of time whilst on board a dive boat. The ambitious watch is fitted with a black ceramic bezel with white enamel diving scale– a durable material that promises not to fade when exposed to sunlight or erode when faced with gusts of harsh winds carrying sea salt in the air. It might seem a small advantage but it’s definitely a factor that contributes to the many benefits of the watch’s spec. For others in search of a bold and dynamic watch which oozes diver appeal, the Omega Seamaster Diver 300 will sit under the cuff of a sophisticated suit, looking as dashing as ever, without ever even dipping its lugs into a drop of water. What we have to remember here, is that Omega have equipped this watch with the fundamental diving features desired by those who want to use the watch for its soul purpose, but for many an Omega collector, the pleasure in wearing a diver’s timepiece goes far beyond ever testing its functionality in its intended environment. Omega watch collectors want to own a stylish timepiece like the Seamaster Diver 300 because it oozes swagger and adds instant status to an outfit.
What we love about Omega is their willingness to commit to the same level of fineness and attention to detail when creating diver’s watches like the Seamaster Diver 300 watch, as they do when manufacturing their higher end models. Omega have so much respect for their own design and innovation, that it really shows in the execution of this diver’s watch. The stunning black ceramic dial has a gloss finish which entices the sunlight to come and play with it. Its razor sharp glow dances with the matte finished grooves forming the laser engraved wave pattern etched delicately onto its surface. It is satisfying to see Omega pay so much attention to fine details like these. They add dimensions and layers to the dial that can only be unravelled by the wearer as he admires the watch in different environments whilst getting to know his new companion.
The Omega Seamaster Diver 300 watch is equipped with a new, reformed helium escape valve. The ingenious piece of technology is a patented feature which allows for it to be operated underwater. The alternating brushed and polished surfaces of the stainless steel flanks and bezel of the watch case add to the overall impression of the timepiece – bold and stealthy. The watch is fitted with the Omega caliber 8800 Master Chronometer – a METAS-certified movement with proven accuracy and durability. Fine finishes and opulent details extend into the black rubber strap, completed with a stainless steel buckle. Finally, the Omega Seamaster Diver 300 watch is fitted with a sapphire-backed case which allows you to take a surrealist plunge into the depths of Omega’s meticulous watch manufacture. A number of hand assembled components making up the in-house movement, together with exquisite finishes, are put on show through this glass window, parading some of Omega’s finest artistry and craftsmanship.
