The Seamaster is one of Omega’s most loved diving watches and a stable in the brand’s portfolio. It is also part of Omega’s history for ages, as the Seamaster name was first introduced in 1948 and has been in production ever since. It has been the canvas for a very wide range of styles, colours, materials and complications over the years and is divided into 4 sub-collections: Aqua Terra, Diver 300M, Planet Ocean and Heritage. Under the moniker of the 300M, Omega now introduces the Seamaster Diver 300M with a green dial and bezel. Let’s find out more about the green Bond watch.
We’ve already established numerous times the Seamaster Diver 300M is a very capable diving tool, and a watch professional divers could easily rely on when taking the plunge. This green version follows the latest evolution of the Seamaster Diver 300M down to the wire, just in a new colour.
This means it still comes in a 42mm wide stainless steel case with a diving bezel fitted with a ceramic insert. The green insert has a white enamel scale and is polished to a high gloss. The screw-down crown is flanked by crown guards, and at 10 o’clock there’s the signature conical helium escape valve. The dial, also in green ceramic has a more matte finish, with a laser-engraved wave pattern. The hands and indices are also left untouched, as they are perfectly fit for their intended task.
Just as previous editions of the Seamaster Diver 300M, this one comes with Omega’s in-house made Calibre 8800. This automatic movement runs at a frequency of 25,200vph and provides 55 hours of running time. It features a co-axial escapement with a silicon balance spring and is anti-magnetic to 15,000-gauss. The decoration hasn’t changed and shows rhodium-plated bridges, Geneva waves in arabesque, blackened screws, barrel and balance wheel. As always, it comes with a Master Chronometer certification issued by METAS.
The new Omega Seamaster Diver 300M with a green dial and bezel is available on a green rubber strap with a steel pin buckle (ref. 126.96.36.199.10.001), or the signature brushed and polished steel bracelet with an extendable folding clasp (ref. 188.8.131.52.10.001). It retails for EUR 5,400 on rubber or EUR 5,700 on the bracelet.
