The New Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Black Black (Price, Pictures and Specifications)
Since 1993, the Seamaster Professional Diver 300M has enjoyed a legendary following. Omega’s 21st century models stay true to the original’s dive watch design, while introducing exciting new materials and movements.
On this 43.50 mm model, black ceramic [ZrO2] dominates. The case, bezel, wave-pattern dial, crown and helium escape valve, all in the same striking material, give the watch a very distinctive, uniform and sculptural look. To ensure visibility without affecting the overall aesthetic, Omega has introduced anthracite Super-LumiNova to the diving scale, the black PVD indexes and skeleton hands - and dot at 12H.
Completing the look is an integrated black rubber strap with black ceramic buckle. Adding some light to the darkness is a window with a clear view of the movement. Visible through the sapphire-crystal on the wave-edged caseback is Omega’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8806.
The Advantages Of This Watch
Inside this timepiece are the revolutionary components that guarantee the highest standards of performance. From the Co-Axial escapement for long-lasting precision, to the silicon balance spring for superior anti-magnetism, Omega has conquered every challenge that matters.
Omega has unrivalled expertise in the use of ceramics, dating back more than 10 years. Taking its origin from the Greek word "keramos", ceramic is an inorganic, non-metallic substance obtained by firing at high temperatures. It allows the creation of completely dense watch parts with exceptional mechanical properties. Ceramic is one of the most popular choices for customers when selecting their timepiece, thanks to its appealing colour range and specific properties, such as it being two times lighter than stainless steel, hardwearing, highly scratch-resistant, chemically inert, hypoallergenic, environmentally friendly and non-magnetic.
To really appreciate the finer details of a timepiece, Omega uses synthetic sapphire crystal with a highly scratch-resistant and anti-reflective treatment. Before the machining and finishing processes take place, the sapphire crystals are produced under the Verneuil process, also called flame fusion. It involves the melting of the raw substance using oxyhydrogen flame and the crystallisation of the melted droplets to form a cylinder. Graded 9 on the Mohs-hardness scale (graded 1-10), the resulting sapphire crystals are virtually scratch-proof and very hard, ensuring an unhindered vision at all times.
