Easily one of the strongest new high-end wristwatch product offerings for 2018 is Omega’s updated Cheap Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Replica.At the time in the early 1900s it was meant to reassert Omega’s relevance but also distinctive design ethos. In fact, the Seamaster 300M was supposed to NOT look like the Rolex Submariner – which at the time dozens and dozens of watches did indeed look like.Omega wanted to be more than just like Rolex, it wanted to be something totally refreshing and contemporary in its approach to a late 20th century luxury timepiece.
One of the most iconic design elements of the Omega Seamaster 300M is the manual helium release valve located at 10 o’clock on the case. I’m not sure why Omega Replica Watches opted for a manual versus automatic helium release valve at a time when automatic valves were easy to design. My guess is that Omega simply wanted the case to have the added character created by the addition of a second crown on the case. The curious feature draws anyone’s attention who notices it.
While I can’t say for sure, I believe that Omega has been continually producing at least some form of the Seamaster 300M for the last 25 years. Don’t forget that Omega Replica even added a few dive watch lines to the Seamaster collection over the years including the dressier Seamaster Planet Ocean, and the vintage-style Seamaster 300.
In my opinion, the Seamaster 300M dial with its distinctive hands and hour markers is a design that has aged well. I do admit that when I first learned about the design long ago it didn’t do much for me. It took years of looking at other sport watch dials to appreciate that High Quality Omega Replica made something with the enduring power of a Submariner – but with a more contemporary and active feel to it.
For a long time, titanium Seamaster 300M models complimented the steel ones. To begin with, the modern generation of Seamaster 300M watches for 2018 have only one titanium model – which is a limited edition produced in titanium, Sedna gold, and tantalum. Omega Replica Watches did however produce a fair number of two-tone steel and 18k Sedna or yellow gold models. Those two-tone Seamaster 300M models are truly lovely, but they include a rather steep price increase that in my opinion takes a lot out of the really high value-proposition fun of the entirely steel Seamaster 300M models.
To examine the important details of the 2018 Seamaster 300M watches let’s begin by looking at the movement. It goes without saying that Cheap Replica Watch has included the Seamaster 300M into its family of Master Chronometer watches, which means it contains an in-house made METAS certified “Co-Axial Master Chronometer” movement. The movement is the Omega caliber 8800 automatic. Operating at 3.5Hz (25,200bph) with a co-axial escapement, the caliber 8800 has a power reserve of 55 hours and uses a silicon hairspring and non-magnetic parts which give the movement a super high resistance to magnetic fields.
One change to the Seamaster 300M dial for the 2018 models is the position of the date window, which is now at a more symmetrical position at 6 o’clock. Charming Fake Omega Watches also tells us that new rules exist saying that dive watches need to have luminous points at all 12 hour markers. Thus, the Seamaster 300M has a small hour marker under the date window. According to these new rules, the Submariner would not pass given that on most models the date window replaces the hour indicator at 3 o’clock.
