Omega Reintroduces The Seamaster 300

In 1957, Omega introduced the Seamaster 300 – a watch designed specifically for divers and professionals who worked underwater. More than half a century later, the Seamaster 300 is reintroduced in a completely upgraded and enhanced form, prepared to equip a new generation of adventurers on land and in the oceans. Like its historic predecessor, the new Seamaster 300 features a symmetrical case and lugs as well as a dark dial, lighter indexes and big hands and numbers for easier reading in various lighting conditions.

Steel, Titanium And Gold

The 41 mm Seamaster 300 is available in an impressive selection of metallic materials including stainless steel, grade 5 titanium and 18K Sedna gold. Bi-colour options pairing grade 5 titanium or stainless steel with 18K Sedna gold stand out with their timeless and understated aesthetic appeal. The unidirectional rotating bezels of the full titanium and stainless steel models are enhanced with a Liquidmetal diving scale while the golden and bi-colour models have a diving scale made with Omega Ceragold.

The brushed screw-in caseback is engraved with “Si14”, “Liquidmetal” or “Omega Ceragold”, and “ANTI-MAGNETIC > 15’000 GAUSS”.

A Vintage Touch

The Seamaster 300 is available with either a sand-blasted blue or black dial decorated with recessed hour markers that are filled with a “vintage” Super-LumiNova. The hour and seconds hands and indexes emit a blue light while a green light is emitted from the minute hand and dot on the bezel. The hands are crafted from 18K Sedna gold, 18K white gold or are rhodium-plated, depending on the case material. A white varnished central seconds hand equips the stainless steel and titanium models.

The Omega Master Co-Axial calibre 8401, characterised by an 18K red gold rotor and balance bridge, powers the limited edition and solid 18K Sedna gold models.

State-Of-The-Art Bracelet

The Seamaster 300 is presented on Omega’s patented screw-and-pin bracelet crafted from the same material as the case. It features the brand’s newly patented extendable foldover rack-and-pusher clasp, which is adjustable to six different positions.

It can be adjusted to six positions over 9.60 mm by releasing the clasp, pressing the “push” button and sliding the inner clasp to the desired fit.

Omega Master Co-Axial

With these extraordinary timepieces, Omega is proud to introduce two calibres to its family of high-quality, anti-magnetic mechanical movements. The Omega Master Co-Axial calibres 8400 and 8401 not only boast the same accuracy, precision and reliability of their Co-Axial cousins but also feature Omega’s revolutionary anti-magnetic technology, which ensures that the Seamaster 300 is impervious to strong magnetic fields, even those that exceed 15,000 gauss. The revolutionary movement is visible through the timepiece’s domed sapphire crystal caseback. The Omega Master Co-Axial calibre 8401, characterised by an 18K red gold rotor and balance bridge, powers the limited edition and solid 18K Sedna gold models.

The Seamaster 300 is water resistant to 30 bar (300 metres / 1000 feet) and is offered with a full four-year warranty.
