The Seamaster is a beautiful collection of very stylish and modern timepieces that enjoy some of the most impressive functions and water exploration features. It is an iconic diving watch that was created for taming the deepest parts of the ocean. Nevertheless, on dry land the Omega Seamaster is equally appealing and suitable for making a statement of understated elegance and sophistication.
The best thing about the Seamaster series is that it includes so many diver’s watches families that you never grow tired of it. It is a collection that has continuously enriched its portfolio with new and innovative designs that have revolutionized the diving watches niche. Among the most distinctive and successful models we need to mention the Divers 300M, the Bullhead and the PloProf 1200.
The Seamaster Diver 300M Co-Axial
Below and above the water’s surface, the Seamaster Diver 300M is the sporty, but fashionable timepiece that provides reliable time keeping performances and valuable functionality. This sleek and modern device is able to sink to depths of 300 meters thus being the ideal watch for those who love mixing their passion for aquatic wonders with the one for beautiful timepieces.
Due to its connection with deep sea exploration and the world’s most famous secret agent, the Seamaster Diver 300M is one of Omega’s main stars. Upgraded with the new Omega Co-Axial Calibre 2500, with bold colors and innovative functions, the model epitomizes a truly lasting treasure.
This underwater icon completes any wardrobe or wet suit in a most attractive manner. Its case is available in a very diverse range of sizes: 28 mm, 36.25 mm, 41 mm and 44 mm. These models come with a lacquered black or blue dial, have white skeletonized central minute and hour hands and a red or yellow seconds hand. The chronograph version comes with three sub-dials that display 30 minutes, 12 hours and small seconds.
The Seamaster 300M includes two distinctive styles. One is the Seamaster 300M James Bond 50th Anniversary and the other one is the Seamaster Diver ETNZ. The James Bond 50th Anniversary special edition Seamaster features a unique 007-themed dial and a sleek case back. It is a stunning mix of Omega’s splendid watchmaking skills and the adventurous Bond spirit. The Diver ENTZ is a special edition model that marks Omega’s partnership with Emirates Team New Zealand and their campaign of wining America’s Cup, one of the most important sailing trophies.
The Omega Seamaster Bullhead
The Bullhead has a completely unique dial and case configuration. It is different than any model from the Omega collection. Its design was inspired by a Seamaster Bullhead that was produced in 1969, a very rare collectible chronograph that is easy recognizable for most watches enthusiasts.
The style of the contemporary Bullhead is intriguing. The timepiece is instantly identifiable even though the modern version has a few remarkable upgrades that do not match the original watch. The new models preserve the charm of the vintage model and the symmetries of the case and bezels, but somehow it enhances its aesthetics with a brand new personality. The round pushers of the classic watch were replaced with flat ones which look more stylish and masculine. Still, the most important upgrade can be found at the inside of the timepiece. The new Bullhead comes with an innovative Omega Co-Axial calibre 3113, a mechanical automatic movement that has a column-wheel chronograph and delivers stellar precision. The essence of its impressive aesthetics lays in the distinctive inner bezel and the extremely useful sub-dials located at 6 and 12 o’clock.
The Seamaster PloProf 1200M
Omega knows no limits when it comes to creating uniquely functional and stylish timepieces. Among its rich collection of extraordinary watches we find the PloProf 1200M, a polarizing diver model with cutting edge features. The first Seamaster PloProf was launched in 1968 and it was a limited edition piece that has attracted a huge number of admirers. Even though its production was discontinued, recently the brand felt the need of reintroducing this remarkable watch with an unparalleled passion for extreme diving.
The Seamaster PloProf 1200M comes with an extra-large angular case which measures 55×48 mm and an idiosyncratic bezel lock system. To be able to turn its bidirectional bezel you need to push the prominent orange button which serves as a safety guard. To set the time and date you need to unscrew the hefty screw lock crown. The first thing that makes an impression on you is the distinctive design of the watch. The chunky bezel, the mesh bracelet, the bulky crown guards and the large hands complete a look that is simply eye-catching. As the name also suggests, the PloProf is waterproofed to 1200M.
The OMEGA Seamaster is a timeless classic that attracts more fans than ever due to its fame as the world’s definitive divers’ watches. Its rich heritage, alluring design and outstanding performances are the key elements that trigger our interest for these fascinating models.
