After their conspicuous absence from Baselworld this year, OMEGA have finally unveiled this 2019’s newest models, which as luck would have include one or two new diver’s watches - well, at least some new variants.
Starting with this, the new Seamaster 300M Chronograph which joins last year’s SM Diver 300M on which it is based and shares all of its diving features with.
There are at least 4 variants (not all shown here) of which is this eye-catching 18K Sedna™ gold model with a dark laser-ablated black ceramic bezel and golden-ringed sub-dials.
In fact at least 3 out of 4 of the versions get blingy gold accents in one way or another, but fear not there is also a plain Stainless steel offering with a classic blue bezel and dial.
About those diver’s features - the watch’s 44mm case is equipped with the new conically-shaped HEV (designed for better grip), a diver’s bezel with ceramic inlay and of course 300 meters of WR.
Keeping track of time is an easy-to-read display that includes; central hour-minute and chrono-sec. hands, a 60min and 12hr recorder, a small seconds sub-dial and a date window at 6 o’clock.
All chronograph models are unique for their ceramic chrono-pushers, which perfectly match the color of their bezels and dials.
In addition to ceramic, bezels and pushers, the watches also get ceramic dials with laser-engraved waves as well as raised indexes that are filled with Super-LumiNova.
Power comes from a highly-precise, OMEGA Master Chronometer Calibre 9900 which can be seen through a sapphire exhibition case-back.
You can choose from black ceramic, stainless steel and 18K Sedna™ gold, or blue ceramic, stainless steel and 18K yellow gold.
The watches will be available from late summer. Thoughts? You can’t beat the classic steel and blue combo, the others aren’t really for me. What do you think; which is your favorite?
