The Omega Seamaster 300 prominently featured in the 2015 James Bond film, „Spectre“. When asked by the titular character what the watch was capable of, James Bond’s chief gadget-designer Q gave a dry answer:
“It tells the time“.
Although 007 later learned the watch was indeed explosive, the Seamaster 300 (Ref. 18.104.22.168.01.001) can be described as a simple timepiece.
Going back to the namesake launched by Omega in 1957, this watch has remained true to her role model in design. The sandwich dial with indices
in “retro” Super-Luminova, combined with the particularly scratch-resistant bezel in Liquidmetal™, exudes the 1950s feeling one would expect from
a faithful re-issue.
But its great strength, in addition to its vintage charm, is the calibre 8400
of the Seamaster 300: it is resistant to magnetic fields up to an astonishing 15,000 Gauss, and has two barrels installed one behind the other, which enables it to have an impressive 60 hour power reserve. Added to this is
a time zone function, i.e. if you pull the crown out to its first position, you can adjust the hour hand in hour increments while the second hand continues to move – ideal when travelling for quick changes to other time zones.
If you’re looking for a luxurious diving watch, the Omega Seamaster should definitely be included in the narrow selection, as it is a tough competitor
to comparable diving watches such as the Rolex Submariner and Breitling Superocean.
