The updated Omega Seamaster 300M replica was meant to support the core feel and look from the popular Omega diver’s watch while getting the product’s materials and technology in to the twenty-first century. This is actually the first Seamaster 300M watch collection to incorporate an expert Chronometer certified in-house made Omega movement, which in my experience is a huge a part of maintaining your Professional nature of the sports watch intact.
The Watch History
Omega further doesn’t have lack of replica Omega Seamaster 300M Diver Co-Axial Master Chronometer 42mm versions including this standard all-steel with black dial model to some exotic models with gold and ceramic. During the time of penning this watch review article, Omega has 15 different versions from the Seamaster 300M Co-Axial Master Chronometer on its website.
Initially released in 1993 when Jean-Claude Biver what food was in Omega, the Seamaster 300M searched for to become a competitive option to the Rolex Submariner, that did not immediately seem like a Rolex Submariner replica. Now about twenty five years later I believe lots of people will agree the distinctive hands set together with hour markers is constantly on the assist the Seamaster 300M stand out from your competition.
The Rolex Submariner Replica
The timepiece also offers prices on its side if judged plus the Rolex Submariner. The retail cost of the specific steel Omega Seamaster 300M replica is under $200 contributing to $150 under the Rolex Submariner replica. With this stated, competition within the high-finish dive watch space is very fierce and consumers today spending up to $160 on the sports dive watch are mainly seeking status and prestige instead of utility and elegance.
Within the 1990s Omega’s recognition using the Seamaster 300M mainly difficult to do using the collection’s readily available prices. By today’s standards the Seamaster 300M feels costly, despite the fact that Omega has truly upped the worth proposition when it comes to materials along with the excellent in-house made caliber 8800 automatic movement.
The Watch Movement
Beginning having a Co-Axial escapement, the caliber 8800 can also be safe from the results of ecological magnetism, includes a reliable plastic balance spring, and boasts Omega’s impressive METAS Certification seal. Operating at 4Hz, the automated movement includes a power reserve of 55 hrs and includes time plus a date window complication. It makes sense a precise, reliable, and incredibly resilient mechanical movement, precisely what you’ll want inside a diver’s style timepiece.
The most recent generation of Omega Seamaster 300M Diver replica watch is slightly bigger compared to outgoing generation having a 42mm wide versus 41mm wide situation. Water-resistant to 300 meters, the situation is all about 12mm thick and it has a roughly 50mm lug-to-lug distance. Putting on comfort is high, but it’s huge and chunky watch, particularly when combined with the metal bracelet.
The Watch Dial
Probably the most interesting although subtle updates towards the situation may be the tapering from the helium release valve crown that is found at 10 o’clock around the situation. This slight design tweak is really a magic formula to visually separate the brand new versus old generation replica Omega Seamaster 300M models. Manual helium release valves on watches for diving are old-fashioned technology that are only necessary for rather rare situations.
If you’re not an industrial diver you most likely will not ever have to make use of the helium release valve. Automatic helium release valves are a little more helpful, however the valve is only helpful while in decompression chambers. Visual distinction may be the answer. Whilst not everybody even likes the feel of this 10 o’clock crown, it will help visually distinguish the Omega Seamaster 300M automatic replica using their company watches for diving available.
The Watch Bezel
So although this is intended to be a legit professional diver’s watch it’s also not without its branding quirks that remove from the product purely centered on streamlined utility. The good thing about the Seamaster 300M situation overall, including its swoopy lugs and distinctive bezel design, is constantly on the assist the collection have style appeal in addition to nostalgic attract high-finish watch consumers today.
Much more so than Omega’s other diver watches the Omega Seamaster 300M has additionally symbolized a entry-level tool watch side towards the brand. It had been the brand’s authentic professional diver’s watch with simply the tiniest component of luxury fluff to assist justify its high-finish persona. It had been always designed to the the replica Omega Speedmaster of dive watch, meaning it by design is much more about function and utility than purely form and elegance.
The issue for me personally regarding this 2018 and then Seamaster 300M is that if it maintains this character? Somewhat yes, however in other important ways no. Omega has reprocessed the initial 300M watch using the same sensibilities because the 1993 model as if it arrived on the scene today. This means that Omega designed a better vintage watch instead of creating a better dive watch out for today’s professional divers, that’s still an Omega.
If you have always such as the original Seamaster 300M and wish a refreshed knowledge about it, this timepiece will easily satisfy you. If you want a contemporary dive watch experience from Omega, apart from perhaps the movement, this can be a retro watch in freshly made skin. Let us discuss the dial for a short time. Legibility is really fantastic since the hands and hour markers are the size of they may be as well as high from the dial.
The applied hour makers and hands in addition have a polish which really accumulates light helping them contrast well using the black ceramic dial. The ironic outcome is that as this dial accumulates light and reflects it, it winds up being more legible. Normally the opposite holds true because light causes blurring and glare making dials less visible.
The black ceramic dial has horizontal wave patterns which stimulate the feel of the initial Seamaster 300M watch dials. Updated replica Omega Seamaster chronograph watches from in the past didn’t include waves around the dials, supplying a fresh look that did well on the market. For consistency’s sake and also to help demonstrate the neat laser etching around the dial, the brand new Seamaster 300M watches revives the dial waves for an entire new generation.
A really real upgrade towards the situation within the previous generation Seamaster 300M may be the bezel rotation tactility. Within the bezel is really a ceramic insert, which additionally to black is available in other colors for example blue for other models. The Seamaster 300M Co-Axial Master Chronometer situation also offers a azure very exhibition caseback that is new for that Seamaster 300M. Omega offers form of the timepiece on a steel bracelet or perhaps a rubber strap.
I am often a bracelet guy, however i really recommend thinking about the strap option. Allow me to discuss why. Omega’s Seamaster 300M bracelet is not much enhanced for that new generation of watches. The main design continues to be an kind from the Speedmaster bracelet and it has simply been augmented with Omega’s helpful micro-adjust delpoyant clasp. The bracelet is okay nevertheless its not really a looker and it is not going to beat the Rolex Submariner bracelet inside a contest.
This latest generation Seamaster 300M bracelet is much more fluid compared to original and definitely higher quality. It is not nevertheless the world’s best searching bracelet for me as well as does not put on as easily or stylishly as it can whether it was created differently. The accessible rubber strap for that Seamaster 300M does not just put on a lot more easily around the wrist, however it helps showcase the case’s attractive lug design all of the better.
The Watch Case
You are able to go for some fancy Omega Seamaster 300M Co-Axial Master Chronometer watches at this time with 18k Sedna or gold accents along with a ceramic and titanium model. The gathering will certainly be updated with increased models such as the popular Omega Seamaster 300M titanium replica watches of history. Like a late fan from the original Seamaster 300M watches I admire Omega’s expert capability to remake their early 1990s brand success with a much better form of the initial.
What Omega unsuccessful to complete however was put the Seamaster 300M into today’s generation of watch lover when it comes to relevancy or host to distinction. As the 1990s wasn’t that lengthy ago, inside a real sense this really is another retro-refreshed model by Omega. Lots of collectors want that in the logo and we admire their tenacity by doing this.

It will everything a great dive watch should, and also boasts great legibility in addition to a gracefully aging design.
