As the vintage-style dive watch in Omega’s collection, the Seamaster 300 has to look to its past first with every update. For the latest version of the watch, Omega decided not only to look backward but also forward into the future by adding some high-tech advancements.
The new Omega Seamaster 300 Co-Axial Master Chronometer has been completely overhauled for 2021, and everything on the watch is brand new. The case has been slightly slimmed-down despite accommodating the new METAS-certified 8912 co-axial movement. The bezel is also slimmer and is now fully-lumed, while the dial has become a retro sandwich. Three variations of the watch exist, with two stainless steel models available with black or blue dials, hardened-aluminum bezels, and a lollipop seconds hands. But the real standout is the Bronze Gold variant. With a brown ceramic bezel and bronze dial, this version is crafted from a brand-new alloy created by Omega that offers the look of bronze in a more luxurious form. Bronze Gold can be worn directly against the skin, unlike regular bronze, and it is built to develop patina at a much slower rate, allowing the watch more time to tell its own story. The line will be available starting in June.
