OMEGA Seamaster DIVER 300M Ceramic & Titanium

Basel 2018 saw Omega reestablish the Seamaster DIVER 300M once again as one of its most important diver families.

The Diver 300M that dates back to the mid-90s was revitalized with a load of new features that included:

a re-engineered manual HEV, a new ceramic bezel inlay and ceramic dial with engraved wave-pattern and of course an updated 42mm case housing a METAS-certified, Master Chronometer Caliber 8800.

The Swiss brand which belongs to the Swatch Group will not be attending Basel 2019, so here we have a well-timed release just after SIHH and leading up to Baselworld –

with a new addition to the already 12 strong Diver 300M collection, that is bigger, lighter and dare I say it even better suited to diving.

The Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Ceramic & Titanium comes in a new 43.5mm form factor which imho is the absolute optimum size for a diver’s watch.

With its case made from black ceramic with a brushed finish, and a bezel and case-back both made of Titanium Grade 5, this new variant is also possibly the most high-tech Diver 300M we have seen.

Diver’s features include: Sapphire crystal glass and exhibition case-back, screw-down Ti G5 case-back and crown, Ti G5 bezel with ceramic inlay and enamel dive-time-scale, manual HEV and 300m.

The Diver 300M Ceramic and Titanium ref. is powered by a Chronometer-Certified, Omega Caliber 8806. Its hands and markers are with SLN. It will have an MSRP of 8100USD and will be available this Spring.

Thoughts? I absolutely love the look and imagine that the feel would be just as impressive – it’s a BIG yes from me. What do you think?
