Introduced in 1993, the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M praises its 25th commemoration in 2018. Subsequently, Omega will present a refreshed adaptation this BaselWorld 2018. The Seamaster Diver 300M, presented as the 2531.80 for the programmed rendition and as 2541.80 for the quartz model (the two models highlighted in the Pierce Brosnan James Bond motion pictures), progressed significantly. Accessible in medium sizes too and two or three varieties (dark dial, America’s Cup , chronograph, GMT, etc.).
The Seamaster 300M fundamentally developed with Omega’s develop in regards to developments and materials. Where the Seamaster 300M was constantly founded on ETA’s 2892-A2 development, later on with Omega’s Co-Axial escapement, you will currently see that the Seamaster Diver 300M is presently a Master Chronometer watch utilizing type 8800.
New Seamaster Diver 300M Models
Before we will go active with the new Seamaster Diver 300M models tomorrow in BaselWorld, we as of now show you the curiosities here on Fratello.
The facelifted Omega Seamaster Diver 300M models come in 14 distinct varieties until further notice, remembering 6 models for treated steel and 8 in gold & steel. You will likewise locate a restricted version model in titanium, tantalum and Sedna gold, as Omega’s Seamaster 300M Chronograph reference 2296.80 had before (rose gold rather than the ebb and flow Sedna of course).
The new Seamaster Diver 300M has expanded in size, from 41mm to 42mm (stature is 13.56mm). Empowering Omega to appropriately accommodate their production type 8800 development. This Master Chronometer (METAS guaranteed) development carries the Seamaster Diver 300M to a next-level and can compete with a portion of the other more costly production watches available. The development guarantees high obstruction for attractive fields (up to 15,000 gauss) and better precision under a few conditions. All models have additionally been furnished with a fired bezel, with the jumping scale in Ceragold or white polish (contingent upon the model).
You will likewise see that the wave dial is back! All wave dials have been produced using cleaned ceramic and are accessible in: dark, blue, (PVD) chrome tone. The wave design has been engraved by laser (clarifying the laser secrets on Omega’s Instagram feed in the course of the most recent couple of days). With the later models, we kinda missed the wave design as it was so unquestionably ‘Seamaster 300M’. All lists on the dial are glowing, utilizing Super-LumiNova obviously. Another significant change to the dial is the date gap. Where it used to be at 3 o’clock, it presently moved to 6 o’clock. Helping us to remember the absolute first Seamaster Calendar watches. The skeleton blade hands have gone through a slight update also and are rhodium-plated, blued or in 18 carat gold.
The posterior of the Seamaster Diver 300M uncovers the Omega type 8800 development. Where the strong caseback on these models used to show some engraved waves, you will currently discover the wave design in the edge of the caseback.
Helium Escape Valve
One thing you will quickly see (we did in any event), is the state of the helium get away from valve. An additional crown at 10 o’clock was one of the qualities of the Seamaster Diver 300M, and it is still there, however now in a tapered shape. Presently licensed by Omega as new innovation currently allows it to be utilized submerged. We don’t know the number of these helium get away from valves are really being utilized (in light of the great number of sold Seamaster Diver 300M models we presume it truly is a low number), however at any rate it is cool to realize it very well may be utilized expertly. Having a 4×4 vehicle likewise implies it presumably can accomplish more than you do with it, it is only enjoyable to realize your watch is at any rate ready to be utilized 300 meters submerged and that the helium get away from valve is there to shield the gem from flying off after your immersion dive.
The (Iconic) Seamaster Diver 300M Bracelet
Last yet not least, the popular Seamaster Diver 300M wristband. Regularly loathed, however maybe similarly as frequently cherished, the arm band with 9 columns of connections. In any event optically 9 lines, as when you needed to eliminate a connection from the wristband, it was somewhat 5. The two sections close to the middle one, had cleaned ‘sides’ showing up as independent connections. Numerous lovers feel this arm band was altogether too 1990’s as far as plan, however Omega evidently didn’t need to release it. So as opposed to supplanting it, they gave it an update too. It isn’t as round-ish any longer, which gave it that 1990’s appearance. It is likewise a smidgen more ‘flat’ on top of the connections. Omega likewise incorporate the extendable foldover rack-and-pusher with a supportive diver expansion. With the extension(s), the wristband can become 33mm longer. Some more established models/references likewise used to come with the Speedmaster-style arm band, however Omega decided for the first form to refresh. Other than the famous Seamaster Diver 300M arm band, you can likewise settle on an elastic lash (in dark or blue). The drag size of the new 300M is (still) 20mm.
Prices for the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M will begin at CHF 4400 Swiss Francs. The watch comes with a 4-year warranty.
Seamaster Diver 300M Titanium Tantalum Limited Edition
As referenced above, there will likewise be a restricted version of 2500 bits of the Seamaster Diver 300M in titanium, tantalum and 18 carat Sedna gold. Not a totally new combination, as Omega previously had a Seamaster 300M in this combination (rose gold, titanium and tantalum) in the 1990’s. Indeed, I have one of those, the chronograph reference 2296.80 and it is a cool combination to have titanium and tantalum just as rose gold (or Sedna gold). The tantalum and titanium give a touch of differentiation to one another, because of the pale blue shade of the tantalum. This watch has similar measurements and other specialized determinations as the ‘normal’ new Omega Seamaster 300M models, with the exception of the development (type 8806). As should be obvious, the type 8806 is the ‘no date’ form of their type 8800.
Price of the Ti/Ta/Sedna gold rendition isn’t known as of now, yet we will return to this.
