The Watch

Formerly known as the La Generale Watch Co. it was founded by Louis Brandt in La Chaux-de-Fonds in 1848. In 1903 they renamed the company Omega until 1982 when they officially changed their name to Omega SA.¬†During WW1 Omega watches were used as official timekeepers for the Royal Flying Corps and the US Army. After stringent tests, NASA used Omega for all their Apollo missions including the 1969 Moon landing of Apollo 11. Today Omega is still an astronaut's first choice of timepiece.¬†They are part of the Swiss Swatch Group.¬†The first Omega Seamasters was based loosely on waterproof watches made for the Royal Navy. What made the Seamaster appealing was using an O-Ring gasket which gave it temperature and depth resistance. In 1955, the Swiss Laboratory for Watch ‚ÄĆResearch‚ÄĆ tested out 50 Seamaster cases with a 60-metre depth rating. Omega was so confident that they strapped one to the outside of a plane and flew it over the North pole in 1956.¬†

Celebrating Omega’s maritime and dive heritage, in 1957 Omega introduced the 300 Seamaster series created for the professional diver. This modern Seamaster has a 41mm polished stainless steel case. Manual helium escape valve at the 10 o’clock position. A Black ceramic unidirectional bezel with dive minutes marked clearly, domed AR-coated sapphire crystal. The dramatic Black dial has applied baton and disc indexes coated in lume marking the hours. Skeletonised hands have lume tips, making low-light visibility impressive. At 3 o'clock position sits the date window. On the case back we have the embossed Hippocampus along with Seamaster sitting on a deeply engraved wave pattern. Inside Automatic Omega Co-Axial Cal. 2500, 29 jewels, 25,200 beats per hour, Chronometer Certified. Fitted on a 20mm highly polished stainless steel bracelet with a signed deployment clasp including a push-button micro-adjustment, for the perfect fit. The watch comes with its Omega presentation box and papers.


Personal Note

If you have been considering a dive watch it would be impossible not to consider the Omega Seamaster 300, the question then becomes which one? For me, this is one of my favourites, all the bells, and whistles of the latest technology but with a far cleaner aesthetic on the dial, build quality that feels like a tank when you wear it, and also instantly recognisable for those in the know. The best part for me is the price, truly one of the best value for money dive watches from a major watchmaker.
