Omega® Swiss Luxurious Watches Since 1848

This dedication from Omega to manufacture one of the lightest mechanical diving watches obtainable is outstanding. Stainless steel Seamaster 300 watches produced from the late ’50s until the road was discontinued in 1969 are prized by classic watch enthusiasts. Depending on mannequin and condition, expect to pay from a couple of thousand dollars as much as $10,000 for a classic Seamaster.

29mm in diameter, this computerized calibre is regulated by a co-axial escapement and free-sprung balance wheel with a silicon stability spring. Running at 25,200 vibrations per hour, its energy reserve, coming from a single barrel, is of fifty five hours when absolutely wound. It comes with the stringent Master Chronometer certification, which features a resistance to magnetic fields reaching 15,000-gauss.


No doubt that other combinations shall be available too. The costs might be CHF 6,a hundred and fifty on leather-based strap and CHF 6,450 on metal bracelet. Launched in 2014, the Omega Seamaster 300 – not to be confused with the James Bond, more modern Seamaster Diver 300M – has since been the model’s vintage evocation of the unique 1957 Seamaster 300. Still, its earlier iteration, how performing and well manufactured it was, as maybe a bit too technical and sporty.

Only till lately has any watch maker made a fully anti-magnetic movement. The first watch in a position to resist magnetic fields as much as 15,000 gauss was the Omega Aqua Terra Gauss. The first full anti-magnetic movement and Master Chronometer certified by the COSC is the Omega Constellation “Pie-Pan” Globemaster. This movement is able to having a see-by way of case-again (the cal. 8800 in the new Seamaster 300 M) characterised by a motion with fully anti-magnetic components.
