Introducing: The Omega Seamaster Professional Diver 300M With Master Chronometer Certification

Snappy Take

This is the Seamaster 300M you know and love, however with various significant updates. In evident Omega structure, the above picture just shows approximately 33% of the 14 new Seamasters (!) that are dispatching at Baselworld this week. There are six models in steel and eight more in some adaptation of two-tone, and the case is currently 42mm wide, with a wave dial in the front and an advanced Master Chronometer Caliber 8800 ticking within.

The wave dial is back! 

Introductory Thoughts

Aesthetically, this isn’t a reevaluation of the Seamaster using any and all means. Furthermore, around 25 years in, you either like the skeleton hand Seamaster plan or you don’t. For fanatics of the look, there are various unobtrusive changes that restore this long-standing diver as an advanced individual from the Omega setup. The case is somewhat bigger (42mm versus 41mm), yet the flawless turned carries stay, alongside a refreshed cone-formed helium get away from valve (HeV) at ten o’clock. While Omega says this new shape permits the HeV to be worked submerged, I can’t think about a solitary motivation behind why you would need to unscrew your HeV while effectively submerged. It’s conceivable that the new plan requires a more prominent clarification with respect to its capacity (perhaps it’s for gloves? or on the other hand for a superior grasp when wet?), yet HeVs should just be opened in unmistakable situations, and none of them include the fake watch prices being underwater. Expect a report on this later in the week.

The new Seamaster 300M models additionally have refreshed clay bezels with either Ceragold or white polish decorates. Clay proceeds to the dial, where we additionally see a re-visitation of the wave design (something I generally cherished about my 2254.50), however the utilization of earthenware makes for a lot shinier articulation of this plan. While comparative in idea, the open hands have been refreshed and the date has moved to six o’clock, presently including a shading coordinated date wheel. Seen from behind, a sapphire showcase case back shows what is likely the most significant update, the consideration of a METAS-affirmed Master Chronometer 8800 movement. 

Seamaster aficionados will review that the reach has been host to a few developments throughout the long term, including the ETA-based Omega Caliber 1120 and, most as of late, a Co-Axial 2500 that is basically founded on a similar unique development (however impressively altered by Omega). With the new Seamaster 300M utilizing the Master Chronometer 8800, Omega is proceeding to eliminate their more seasoned developments for their seriously forefront in-house hardware. 

There are 14 unique models in the new assortment, including a couple two-tone variations.

While we’re positively anticipating seeing these new divers in the metal, taking a gander at both the dark dial and the blue dial forms (the most common in the ancestry of the Seamaster 300M), they resemble a welcome update to a very much adored model in Omega’s arrangement. Instead of rehashing an already solved problem, Omega has tried to apply the center competencies they have created in the course of recent years, including blended employments of earthenware and a Co-Axial development that is profoundly ensured against magnetism. The Seamaster is dead. Long live the Seamaster (and the wave dial).
