With this edition of this Omega Seamaster 300M, Omega seamaster planet ocean chronograph replica watch brings the benefits of a METAS (Swiss Institute Of Metrology) accredited movement to the Seamaster 300M family. As James Stacey reported earlier this week, there have been a number of design and movement updates and updates and the outcome is a watch with a very powerful visual identity, as well as a motion that arguably reflects some of the most fascinating horological technology being done everywhere in Switzerland (or the world, for that matter).
The new Seamaster 300M currently includes a new version of the ceramic bezel in addition to a ceramic dial, which is laser-engraved with the famous wave motif; on this specific version, that’s the fundamental steel version with a rubberized band, the numerals on the bezel are full of white enamel. From a technical perspective, there are of course significant benefits to ceramic as a substance for the bezel of a diver’s view — that the substance will not fade and it is for all intents and purposes scratch-proof. Clearly none of us worry about scratching our view dials (if you do happen to do this you probably have other, bigger problems from a case-integrity standpoint) but the colorfastness of ceramic is certainly a plus for that program as well.
The mixture of a ceramic dial along with a ceramic bezel also makes for an incredibly visually striking wristwatch. In this version, the dial comes with a gloss finish that picks up the light beautifully, and both bezel and dial provide a feeling of rather high precision and quality in manufacturing. Transitions between regions of differing color are razor sharp, and there is only enough gleam coming from the dial to make for a nice glow; there’s a handsome subtle matte finish to the grooves forming the wave pattern. The implementation of this bezel and dial is indeed strikingly good that it sounds implausible to get a sub-$5,000 watch, and it is quite satisfying to see Omega seamaster professional 007 replica watches paying so much attention to fineness of execution in entry level models.
As James mentioned in our introductory coverage, this version of the Seamaster 300M also features a re-designed helium escape valve. Omega seamaster professional black ceramic replica ‘s material on this attribute says that the new valve design”. . .has been patented by OMEGA with an ingenious technology that allows it to be operated underwater.” James was not quite sure what to make of the and I wasn’t either initially — helium release valves are used to saturation divers undergoing dry decompression in a seafloor or even a ship-board habitat and under neither circumstance are either divers or their watches immersed. We have checked in using Omega seamaster aqua terra clone watches, however, and they have explained that the valve has been designed so that when it is accidentally left open, the watch is still water resistant, making much more sense.
The caliber 8800 is a Master Chronometer/METAS-certified motion — an update in the grade 2500 found in the previous Seamaster 300M version. These have shown to be very precise and durable motions, and also the fact that they are basically impervious to magnetic fields of any strength you are apt to encounter in actual live, is quite a considerable plus for customers. Much like the quality of the case, dial, and hands, it’s another quality that gives you the sensation that Omega seamaster diver 300m fake ‘s placing a great deal of quality in their watches, even at the entry level, where it actually counts. This extends even to the buckle and strap; the first keeper to the strap has a small metal insert to hold it rigid so that you can easily insert the tip of the strap, along with the second keeper has a small projection on its interior surface which notches to a hole in the strap, to keep it from slipping.
Hands On, the new Seamaster Diver 300M Co-Axial Master Chronometer provides the sensation of a really well made, very solid bit of well-engineered gear. The utilization of cutting edge materials feels justified by practical considerations rather than driven by a need for mere makeup, and fit and finish are all you could reasonably want in a watch with a starting price of $4,400.
