Although we have given the most of attention to Seamaster Planet Ocean and Aqua Terra Lines, this attractive sporty chronograph with the superb diving watch performances deserves the highest compliments. Everything about this bold model is truly impressive – from its slick design which is at the same time highly functional, to a high-end technology which is not the surprise when it comes to Omega’s creations. Also considering its size, comfort and readability, we can warmly recommend Seamaster Diver 300M Chronograph to all men who enjoy underwater activities, either professional or amateur. However, it is more likely that future owners of this great watch will prefer to wear it outside water.
The striking Ocean blue color immediately pulls the attention to a highly legible dial and a polished ceramic bezel. Both dial and bezel feature white SuperLuminova coated markers for the superb readability even in the most extreme conditions. In order to increase the legibility even more, the Swiss watchmaker implemented red chronograph hands. The 30-minute counter is placed at the 3 o’clock position, whereas at the 6 o’clock position, there is a 12-hour chronograph together with the date aperture, while the small-seconds sub-dial takes the 9 o’clock position. Including the unidirectional rotating bezel which is a key diving instrument for counting immersion time, we can say that Omega’s novelty offers a full set of diver’s watch performances. Besides, it is water-resistant up to 300 meters (990 feet) which is more than enough for most of underwater adventures.
A robust, stainless steel case with a combination of brushed and polished finishing has the diameter of 44 mm which is an appropriate size for a diving watch. It features a helium-escape valve and an integrated date corrector at the 10 o’clock position. The crown is screw-down, while prominent pushers ensure easy handling. Domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment protects the dial. The authentic shape of the case and its lugs look very interesting, as well as a beautifully executed stainless steel bracelet with five rows with brushed and polished surfaces.
The Seamaster Diver 300M Chronograph is powered by an OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 3330 self-winding movement. This COSC Certified Chronometer with a column-wheel and a Co-Axial escapement that guarantees high precision, stability and durability ensures 52 hours of power-reserve.
