Formerly known as the La Generale Watch Co. 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. They are part of the Swiss Swatch Group.
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 Blue ceramic unidirectional bezel with dive minutes marked clearly, domed AR-coated sapphire crystal. The dramatic deep blue dial has applied baton and pips 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. Screw down crown and case back provides 300m/1000ft water resistance. 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 signed deployment clasp including a push-button micro-adjustment, for the perfect fit.
Points of Mention
This watch is sold with its original Omega box and Omega paperwork. The watch comes paired on its original Omega bracelet with a signed Omega clasp, all links included. The watch is from June 2019 and is sold in worn condition, but overall great condition as you can see. The watch comes with its original manufacturer warranty which is able to be used by whoever owns the watch and has the guarantee card.
The Seamaster is the quintessential dive watch, granted design-wise it won't be for everyone, but that is one of the things I really love about this watch! Whilst the design doesn't do it 100% for me, I really appreciate the fact it is just that little bit different from the sea of dive watches out there being offered, it's different whilst still being incredibly classic in its own right. If you are in the market for a dive watch and don't want to pay silly bonkers over retail, this is the watch for you.
