They gave the Seamaster a sandwich dial. A what? you say, well it’s simply a two layer dial, with cut-outs for the numbers and superlume markers, so the black layer sit on top, like a wafer thin ham sandwich. That’s making us hungry, but let’s move on.
This latest iteration of the Seamaster 300 has a co-axial movement inside, here’s the word from Omega;
“OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8912. The movement and full watch are certified as a Master Chronometer, approved by METAS, and resistant to magnetic fields reaching 15,000 gauss. The calibre features a free-sprung balance with silicon balance spring, two barrels mounted in series, and is automatic winding in both directions.”
What that means is superb timekeeping coupled with low maintenance durability. The 8912 runs at 25,200vph, which is quite a bit less than rivals like the Tudor Black Bay or Rolex Submariner.
The Seamaster 300 has a 41mm case, 300m of depth rating of course, plus comes in steel bracelet or leather strap options. There are blue or brown dial options. Prices start at £5280.
