Bronze has a long and traditional history with ocean exploration, having been used in nautical applications such as boat propellers and diving helmets. Today, OMEGA has revived this classical art in its own unique way; the Seamaster 300. First created by OMEGA in 1957, the Seamaster 300 represents one of the most famous watches in underwater history and we're thrilled to present this bestselling collection to our Hugh Rice customers. Admired by generations of divers, it has remained an iconic timepiece for more than 60 years. In late 2021, the newest collection of models will arrive. Not only are they thinner than previous versions thanks to the new sapphire glass, but they include plenty of vintage tributes and a brand-new Master Chronometer upgrade. Expertly crafted from satin-brushed Bronze-Au375 Gold, this round 41MM model has a much cleaner oxidized bronze dial with patina which features only the OMEGA logo and Seamaster 300 name. There are no longer any references to the movement, these have instead been moved to the case back. Perhaps the most noticeable changes can be found on the new dials. For this, OMEGA has utilised a sandwich concept, including a base layer with Super-LumiNova and a second plate over the top with cuttings for the recessed hour markers and numerals. In a nod to history, these numerals are in the vintage Arabic open style, which appeared on early Seamaster 300 models in the 1960s. The dial is complete with PVD bronze-gold coloured hour-minute & seconds hands, with its tip now filled with Super-LumiNova. The watch experts have also achieved a slightly slimmer Seamaster 300 thanks to a new domed sapphire crystal on the face of the watch. This thinner look is enhanced by the addition of a new conical crown at the side of the case. Mounted on the Bronze Gold case is a matching unidirectional rotating bezel, with a polished brown ceramic ring filled with stunning vintage details and a diving scale. As well as featuring a soft pink hue, during wear it offers incomparable corrosion resistance without Verdigris-oxidation and will therefore age slowly and retain its natural and beautiful patina over a longer period of time. The colour complementing, soft dark brown leather strap measures 21MM between the lugs, it has the ability to look great over time and it’s complete with a thinner, OMEGA branded buckle for the ultimate comfort underwater and an easy release. Finally, the case back includes a wave-edged design, as well as sapphire crystal that offers a view of the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8912. The movement and full watch have been certified by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS) at the industry’s highest standards of precision, performance and magnetic resistance. This timepiece is complete with a five-year brand warranty and it has an impressive 60-hour power reserve. It also comes with a splash-proof and water resistant to the depth of 300M, ensuring that it will look striking and perform brilliantly both above the waves and deep below. Please note; this OMEGA timepiece is available for pre-order now and is due to arrive late 2021.
