This is the Seamaster 300M you know and love, yet with various significant updates. In evident Omega structure, the above picture just shows about 33% of the 14 new Seamasters (!) that are dispatching at Baselworld this week. There are six models in steel and eight more in some rendition of two-tone, and the case is currently 42mm wide, with a wave dial in the front and a cutting edge Master Chronometer Caliber 8800 ticking within.
The wave dial is back!
Aesthetically, this isn’t a reevaluation of the Seamaster using any and all means. What’s more, around 25 years in, you either like the skeleton hand Seamaster plan or you don’t. For aficionados of the look, there are various inconspicuous changes that restore this long-standing diver as an advanced individual from the Omega arrangement. The case is marginally bigger (42mm versus 41mm), however the exquisite turned hauls 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 concerning its capacity (perhaps it’s for gloves? or then again for a superior hold when wet?), however HeVs should just be opened in quite certain situations, and none of them include the watch being underwater. Expect a report on this later in the week.
The new Seamaster 300M models likewise have refreshed fired bezels with either Ceragold or white finish trims. Clay proceeds to the dial, where we likewise 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 comparable 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 extensive update, the consideration of a METAS-ensured 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 adjusted by Omega). With the new Seamaster 300M utilizing the Master Chronometer 8800, Omega is proceeding to eliminate their more seasoned developments for their seriously bleeding edge in-house hardware.
There are 14 unique models in the new assortment, including a couple two-tone variations.
While we’re unquestionably 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. As opposed to wasting time, Omega has looked to apply the center competencies they have created in the course of recent years, including blended employments of ceramic and a Co-Axial development that is exceptionally ensured against magnetism. The Seamaster is dead. Long live the Seamaster (and the wave dial).
