More on Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Watches

Omega has been one of the cornerstones of Swiss luxury and exceptional value. Thanks to many iconic watches, such as the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M, it has cemented itself as one of the most highly sought-after luxury brands worldwide.

About Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Watches

The Omega Seamaster Diver 300M has become a fan favorite across the years, as legends like James Bond 007 and Prince William have been seen wearing this diver. For more than thirty years, at this point, the model line has undergone several upgrades and alterations.

However, the core values still remain the same: 300M of water resistance, the unique dive bezel, a polarizing helium escape valve, and an iconic bracelet to match. The watch has even seen the introduction of various complications and different colors as well.

Omega Seamaster Diver 300M History

The first Omega Seamaster Diver 300M saw daylight in 1993 as a replacement for the Seamaster 200m. Upgrades included a more traditional case design, 'lyre' lugs, and the unique 'scalloped' bezel. Of course, the wave pattern, which is now synonymous with the watch, was also present on the first model.

This first edition was featured in the 1995 James Bond 'GoldenEye' movie. The second edition was launched in 2006 with an improvement movement and a slightly revised dial. The third edition was unleashed in 2012 and featured a ceramic bezel, and the latest edition was launched in 2018, featuring numerous technological and aesthetic updates.

What's Unique About Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Watches?

There aren't many watches that present themselves the way the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M does - and for good reason. The first thing most enthusiasts will point out is the looks. You have a rather prevalent helium escape valve that is unlike anything else on the market.

A lovely wave pattern dial is present on most models, and to top things off, you have a 'scalloped' bezel. The movements within are also something incredibly special, as Omega is one of the leading producers of technologically impressive movements.

Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Movements

Since there are multiple different models, there are various different movements to cover:

  • Caliber 8806: A self-winding movement that features a Co-Axial escapement and is master chronometer certified, offering the wearer 55 hours of power reserve. Present in models such as the Seamaster Diver 300 007 James Bond Edition.
  • Caliber 8800: A self-winding movement that features a Co-Axial escapement and master chronometer certification, equipped with a free-sprung balance with a silicon balance spring and powering a watch for 55 hours. Present in models such as the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Summer Blue.
  • Caliber 9900: A self-winding chronograph movement that features a Co-Axial escapement and is METAS certified, resistant to magnetic fields reaching 15,000 gauss, and offers 60 hours of power reserve. Present in models like the Omega Seamaster Chronograph America's Cup.
  • Caliber 8801: A self-winding Co-Axial movement, certified by METAS, and presented with an 18K Sedna gold balance bridge and oscillating weight with Geneva waves in arabesque, offering 55 hours of power reserve. Present in models like the Omega Seamaster Diver 300 Master Chronometer 42mm.

Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Watch Colors

While the Seamaster Diver 300M may have begun its life with more plain colors and hues, throughout the past 30 years, the Diver 300M has seen an introduction of some more exotic colors. The classic Diver 300M remains a classic in the deep blue, represented on the wave pattern dial as well as the ceramic bezel. Another more sober color presented on this model is black, pairing quite nicely with two-tone variants.

Light silver and titanium silver present a different look on the dial and bezel, creating a more luxurious look. For a pop of color, Omega has also presented a white dial with contrasting black hands and a ceramic bezel. Staying with the times, Omega has also introduced a dark green variant, pairing a deep green hue on the bezel and dial.

Lastly, Omega introduced a new 'Summer Blue' variant in 2023, launched to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Seamaster collection, pairing a tone-on-tone light-to-deep blue bezel and dial.

Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Watch Materials

Omega has, unlike other companies, played it rather safe when it comes to the materials used on the Diver 300M.

Most of the Diver 300M models are presented with or in stainless steel. Omega uses 316L stainless steel, known for its resistance to corrosion and its ability to be polished after use. Both lighter and more durable than steel, the use of titanium on dive watches also makes sense, yet Omega goes further and uses this revolutionary material as an aesthetic factor as well.

Presented on the bezels of the Diver 300M, ceramic provides a bright burst of color while also being far more resistant to scratching than aluminum.

Sedna Gold is Omega's variant on rose gold, presented as an alloy of rose gold coupled with copper and palladium, offering a unique color and improved resistance to fading. Perhaps not as liberally used as Sedna Gold, Omega does make use of 18K yellow gold on various two-tone versions of the Diver 300M.

Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Watch Types

All Seamaster Diver 300M are divers, as the name suggests, yet there are a few chronograph models as well. Perhaps not as popular as the pure diver due to its impressive size, the chronograph models do still provide a massive amount of functionality.

Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Watch Complications

The Seamaster Diver 300M remains true to its roots as a dive watch with only a few complications being added to the model line over the years:

  • Helium Escape valve: Saturation diving involves managing gas pressure in the body during deep dives. Gas molecules from tanks enter the bloodstream, and controlled decompression is crucial to avoid gas bubbles. During decompression, growing helium inside the watch can blow off the crystal, and a helium escape valve solves this problem.
  • Date function: Most of the Diver 300M models are presented with a date aperture located at the 6 o'clock position.
  • Chronograph: Some variations of the Diver 300M come equipped with a chronograph movement within, the caliber 9900 in particular. This allows the wearer to time and event with the use of the pushers, which will be indicated on the subdials.
  • Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Sizes

    Most dive watches are on the bigger side, simply to withstand the depths and pressures they need to reach and sustain. The Diver 300M certainly isn't overbearing or cumbersome in size, as most models are presented with a respectable 42mm case. Some of the ceramic models dial this up to 43.5mm, whereas the chronograph models are the largest, presented with a 44mm case.
