Since 1993, the Seamaster Diver 300m has enjoyed a legendary following. This year, the collection celebrates 25 years with a full makeover from the inside out. The original design and ocean spirit are still there, but now with advanced materials and updates in every model.

The date window has moved from the 3 o'clock to the 6 o'clock position.

Now sized at 42 mm, every design detail has been rethought, including a new ceramic bezel with the diving scale in Ceragold™ or white enamel. Inside, the watches include the Master Chronometer Calibre 8800, instantly taking the collection into a higher realm of precision, performance and magnetic resistance.

The sleek dials are made from ceramic and are available in black, blue or PVD chrome colour. The popular wave pattern has been reintroduced (now laser-engraved) and the indexes have been raised and filled with Super-LumiNova. Even the skeleton hands have been subtly reshaped.

Limited Edition
Along with the other Diver 300M models, Omega is releasing a limited edition version of the Diver 300M using tantalum, a rare, corrosion-resistant blue-gray metal first used by the watch brand with the introduction of the Diver 300M in 1998.

Limited to 2,500 pieces, this rare model follows an original 1993 design by using tantalum for the base of the bezel, as well as in the bracelet. The metal's blue-grey tones offer a subtle contrast to the grade 2 titanium and 18K Sedna™ gold, which are used for the other features of the watch. The watch doesn't feature the deate window.

Agent 007 has worn Omega Seamasters in every James Bond film since 1995. Pierce Brosnan wore an Omega Seamaster Quartz Professional Diver 300M in GoldenEye, and an automatic Omega Seamaster Professional Diver 300M in Tomorrow Never Dies, The World Is Not Enough and Die Another Day. Daniel Craig wore a newer model Omega Seamaster Co-Axial Professional Diver and a large Planet Ocean with black bezel in Casino Royale (2006).
