A Closer Look at the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M in Ceramic and Titanium

The Omega brand watchmakers announced the update of their Omega Seamaster Diver 300M last year in Basel. The update to the wrist watch is a serious one that offers a new perspective on an old favorite. We’re going to see a brand new version of its ceramic bezel with a dial in ceramic with engravings and a wave motif. In addition to updates in the aesthetics, the Master Chronometer receives an upgrade along with a new design in the helium-escape valve. The new Seamaster Diver 300M in Ceramic and Titanium exudes the familial DNA with a personality of its own. Still easily recognized as a member of the family, it emerges as a refreshed and revitalized approach to evolution in the lineage of the model. The new take on an older line is deserving of a closer look and careful inspection.

The case

The latest Omega Seamaster Diver 300M in Ceramic and Titanium features a case made of black ceramic n a round shape that measures 43.5mm. The case back is uniquely crafted with grade-5 titanium and features a flat sapphire crystal that allows you to see the inner workings of the mechanical parts of the watch with engravings around the sides giving a few specifications to make it interesting. The case features brushed and polished finishes on the case front and back. This watch is also available in a 42 mm case for its core variants. This just happens to be the larger iteration of the timepiece.

The dial

The dial is crafted of a black ceramic background with a brushed finish. The indexes are round and stick applied type with lume filling to give them high legibility in low lighting environments, such as one would encounter when diving. The new Diver is minus the date window. The diving scale is on the ring and contrasts marvelously in white enamel. It adds to the overall legibility of the watch. One the dial we also see the hallmark wave motif, which in this case is laser engraved in a positive relief styling. A black ceramic ring is placed just prior to the bezel crafted of grade-5 titanium.

The movement

The Omega Seamaster Diver 300M In Ceramic and Titanium is powered by an in-house Omega Caliber 8806 movement. It eats at a frequency of 3.5 Hz with 25,200 vph and 35 jewels. It’s an automatic winding type with a power reserve of 55 hours. The functions are hours, minutes and seconds and the diameter of the movement is 29mm. The chronometer is an upgraded Master Chronometer/METAS certified caliber 8800. This watch is water-resistant up to 300 meters.

The strap

The Omega Seamaster Diver 300M fastens to the wrist with a black rubber strap with a matching buckle in black ceramic.

Price and availability

This variant and the other members of the new line of Omega Seamaster Diver 300M series will be made available for sale to the public some time in the Spring of 2019. The exact release date has yet to be announced. This example of the new Seamaster Diver 300M with the black rubber strap will be offered for a price of $8,100. It’s worth noting that other members of the new line will also be made available in the Spring of 2019 as well. We’re told that there is going to be a decent selection to choose from with gold and steel variations on the bracelets, some going for as high as $9,700, with other models in the line for as low as $4,750.

Final thoughts

The new Omega Seamaster Diver 300M in ceramic and titanium will be one of the most unique variants offered in the new and redesigned collection in the Diver 300 collection. Omega realized that the timing was right for an updated line in an old favorite. When it comes to the quality of the watch and the value for the cost, we find this new watch to be quite a value. Considering the high-end materials in titanium and ceramic with the upgraded certified chronometer and the precision movement, this watch has a lot to offer for the price tag. We expect the new Seamaster Diver 300M collection to be a huge success within its niche market.
