The Backstory

You know the OMEGA Seamaster Diver 300M. It’s been a significant part of OMEGA’s lineup since 1993, developing a massive fanbase in a little over 25 years. It’s truly one of the best known watches in the world, and though we’re not one to talk about celebrities or pop-culture partnerships very often, we’d be remiss not to mention that this is the watch that’s been favored by James Bond since 1995.

The Seamaster name has a long and proud lineage within OMEGA, but – in our opinion – the Diver 300M series is the collection’s most important historical representative. Some of the model’s most recognizable attributes include the curvy facets of the lugs, the five-link steel bracelet with divers’ extension, a lollipop seconds hand, a helium escape valve, and a broadsword handset. 

The Seamaster Diver 300M series also contains OMEGA’s flagship series of diving chronographs under the Seamaster Diver 300M Chronograph banner. Introduced in the 1990s, the Seamaster Diver 300M Chronograph was one of the first diving chronographs available where the pushers could be engaged safely underwater, still a relatively rare feat in today’s watch market.

OMEGA most recently updated the Seamaster 300M collection in a major way in 2018, by adding the use of in-house produced and Master Chronometer-certified movements, and by refocusing the design language of the collection back to its core historical elements from case to dial to purpose.

Why We Love It

Being one of the most recognizable watches in the world, the OMEGA Seamaster Diver 300M needs little introduction. With a built-tough, professional-grade steel case, laser-engraved wave dial, and often finding itself as the modern watch of choice for James Bond, few watches maintain – and deserve – praise so much as the Seamaster Diver 300M.

This model, the ref. 2552.80.00, is a distinctly 2000s edition of the Seamaster 300M, featuring a classic style recalling the watch used in 1995’s “GoldenEye” and executed in a highly-versatile 36mm mid-size diameter. From the waves on the dial, to the pop of red on the seconds hand and cool steel bezel insert, to the case’s twisted lugs – there is so much to love about this watch that has come to embody OMEGA’s brand presence in the 1990s and early 2000s. 

While distinguished in terms of aesthetic to the era from which it was born, the model is nonetheless a classic example of the professional Seamaster collection, showcasing plenty of favorites like a curvy 300m water resistant case, polished and brushed finishing throughout, a 10 o’clock helium escape valve, and – of course – a signature wavy laser engraved dial harkening back to the waves for which the watch was crafted. The bracelet is something to write home about, too; nearly unique within the history of OMEGA, this ultra-comfortable piece of steel has become a real favorite among collectors.

Powered by the Omega caliber 1120, based upon the ETA 2892-A2, the automatic-powered model is ready for anything, serving as an ideal grab-and-go sports watch perfectly suited for your next adventure – whether that’s on the waves or in the office.
