Baselworld 2014 is really close and at Monochrome Watches headquarters we are all craving for the new models that will be presented. A few days ago, we’ve played with rumours about Rolex and Tudor and yesterday Omega posted an intriguing image on their Facebook page. So we’ve played with Photoshop again, and here is a preview of what we think what Omega’s new Seamaster will look like.

Since we already know that Omega will present a re-edition of the Speedmaster Mark II (that we introduced here) we’re super curious about that dark picture. It shows some deep-water scenery with “Another wonder is about to emerge from the Ocean’s darkness” and “Few watches are worthy of the word iconic” written on it. Puzzling, isn’t it? And then came something really intriguing (and frustrating) – a very dark picture only showing a watch’s outlines.

After spending some time with Photoshop, we learn that the dark image actually shows something that looks like a re-issue of the vintage Seamaster 300:

  • A straight lugs case without protection guard
  • A external rotating bezel
  • Broad-arrow hands
  • (Apparently) no date aperture
  • A dial with triangular indexes

All of that are the attributes of the original Seamaster 300, that was introduce in 1957. We would not be surprised to see a re-issue of the ’59 Seamaster 300 with a ceramic bezel and a co-axial chronometer movement. And it will certainly look like this (at least we hope so)…

Seeing something like this would be simply awesome and will certainly be welcomed warmly by Omega enthusiasts, as happened when they introduced other re-issues like the recent Speedmaster ’57 and Speedmaster Mark II. However we’ll have to wait twelve more days, before Omega will officially introduce what was in that dark image. We will be there and will report about it, as soon as we’ll arrived in Basel!

So stay tuned: here on for our Baselworld report, on our Facebook page ‘Monochrome Watches’, on Instagram @monochromewatch and Twitter @monochromewatch.

  1. I don’t like this PO bezel on this watch. I hope it gets some unique bezel, something like the old SM300 had. Maybe with sapphire, and luminous numers (like IWC Aquatimer), and not this ceramic PO bezel.

  2. @wizard – the PO ceramic bezel is here just for the illustration’s sake. The real bezel should be different, with a unique look.

    It should have something with a thin black insert and an inner metallic ring, as the old SM300.

    A few more days to wait and discover it. Stay tuned.

  3. Brice: yes, I know. But why did anybody made this picture with this bezel, when it is obvious, that it will(should) be totally different?
