Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Co-Axial

Omega Seamaster Diver 300M

 

The watch featured here is the gents automatic.   A ladies version is also available.

This exquisite watch is actually a chronometer, the Diver 300M Co-Axial is a marvellous timepiece for any occasion.

A full 80 years after the very first diver’s watch from Omega, the Seamaster collection of timepieces is still highly acclaimed by men and women alike. The design of this Seamaster Diver 300M is  based upon a timeless classic from 1957.  As a fully certified divers’ timepiece that can be used within depths of 30 bar (300 metres), Omega has also equipped the Seamaster with a helium escape valve, allowing it to function in even the most demanding of environments.

 

Presentation

Omega watches are genuine luxury items, so it’s no surprise that the timepiece is presented in a real leather box, lined with silk.  It honestly is an absolute delight to unveil this watch from the confines of its beautiful packaging.  The boxes can sell on eBay for £200 withpuit a watch, so you are buying something special here.

Timekeeping

What do you expect form a chronometer?  Omega watches (specifically the Speedmaster) were worn by Apollo astronauts outside of their spacesuits on the moon.  These watches are rated for pressures of 300 meters.  They keep perfect time!

Bracelet & clasp

Clasp

This heavy duty clasp will not not let you down

 

Although favoured by James Bond, this watch is actually a fully functional divers watch, and the steel bracelet and clasp reflect this.  Made from surgical grade steel, the two-tone (brushed and polished steel) bracelet looks fantastic.  The clasp is a serious piece of hardware and is almost impossible to open without you operating it.  This is not a watch you are going to lose on a boozy night out – it is not going anywhere.

Aesthetics

This is an amazing looking watch.  It’s just beautiful.  Look at it, it’s simply stunning.

Value for Money

These watches have gone up enormously over the past ten years, so the Seamaster loses points here.  It’s a shame because at around £1200 these watches were an attainable luxury to most working people, but they have now become much more exclusive since you will be lucky to find one below £2300 at current prices.
