This Best Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Co-Axial Chronograph ETNZ Replica Watch comes in a 44mm-wide grade 5 titanium case (I am not totally sure if this is the first, but I don’t recall previous cases like this in titanium – at least not grade 5). Speaking of the dial, you can see that Omega wanted to push the envelope, making its professional dive watch series look a bit more like a yacht racing regatta timer.
As you likely know, the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Replica Watch family is totally different than the Omega Seamaster 300 watch family. What a difference an “M” makes. In any event, the appeal of the various Omega Seamaster watches is very different whether you are looking at a 300M or a Planet Ocean.
A revised version of an existing model, this Omega Seamaster Replica Watch has a refreshed dial that is a bit more “nautical,” a titanium case, and a new rubber strap which has black on the outside and red on the inside. All the black/gray tones along with red are in honor of the ETNZ racing yacht colors. In addition to the titanium case, the dial of this specific Seamaster ETNZ watch is in grade 5 titanium which is sandblasted, making for a very legible outcome. While we don’t right now have pictures of the actual watch, we did see it hands-on with Omega at Baselworld 2015, so we can attest to the fact that the dial looks very nice.
While I love Omega’s dive watches, the Omega Replica Watch collection is admittedly a bit crowded, so getting the naming conventions correct is an art. Omega also sometimes throws in “Diver” to the name – you know, just to keep things interesting. While the chronograph still operates normally, there is a special (and quite ingenious) “regatta-style” hand on the chronograph minutes counter that runs over an outer track to allow for the 5-minute countdown before the start, as well as a compass-style design to the chronograph’s 12-hour counter. With a focus on functionality, we applaud that even the subdial hands are applied with luminant.
