The Omega that numerous individuals allude to as the Bond watch is the Omega Seamaster Professional, otherwise called the Seamaster Diver 300M. Also, it’s back! Not that it was gone or anything, but rather things had gone somewhat tranquil. The watch that was once affectionately alluded to as the Bond watch or the SMP (Seamaster Professional) has been patched up as Omega dispatches fourteen new models.
Last year, Omega presented the Seamaster Diver 300M Commander’s Watch , helping us to remember the James Bond association. That story began in 1995, with Pierce Brosnan wearing the Omega Seamaster in the film GoldenEye. This particular Seamaster was presented in 1993, with either a quartz development or a programmed development – type 1109 upon presentation, yet before long changed to type 1120, both dependent on the ETA 2892 – including the notable blue dial with a wave design. The programmed model was known as the Seamaster Professional (short SMP) and has been in the assortment from that point onward, albeit in different executions, and on the wrist of James Bond in five movies.
The latest forms highlighted an artistic bezel addition and dial, however the dial didn’t include the conspicuous wave design any longer. With last year’s presentation of the Commander’s Watch , Omega moved the concentration back to the Seamaster 300M and to James Bond. At the time we contemplated whether this was a trace of what was to come, and whether it was planned as a revitalisation of this collection.
Today, we can share the uplifting news that the Bond watch is back. Simply somewhat unique in relation to previously, a touch more present day, marginally greater (at 42mm, so 1mm extra), and with the wave design reincorporated on the dial that is more suggestive of the notable Bond watch. For Baselworld 2018, Omega is presenting no less than fourteen new Seamaster Diver 300M watches.
The new watches are furnished with the Master Chronometer Caliber 8800 development, obviously, against attractive to 15,000 Gauss and tried in the Omega METAS labs. Also, this will be the initial Seamaster Diver 300M with a transparent case back!
The new ceramic dials are cleaned and come with a laser-engraved wave pattern. They are accessible in dark, blue or a PVD chrome colour. All the applied lists have been raised and loaded up with Super-LumiNova and the date window has been moved from the 3 o’clock position to 6 o’clock. The hands additionally have been reshaped, however they actually look a great deal like the ones on the first Seamaster Professional. The pivoting jumping bezel is currently produced using earthenware with the plunging scale in Ceragold or white veneer (both will give a more extended enduring whiteness and durability).
Of course, the Seamaster Diver 300M is as yet furnished with the helium get away from valve (at the 10 o’clock position), however with a more cone shaped shape. While the more established SMP came uniquely on a metal wristband, presently you will have a decision of a metal arm band or a coordinated dark or blue elastic lash. The new 2018 Omega Seamaster Diver 300M will in any case be sensibly estimated, and begins at CHF 4,400 – price relying upon the picked reference.
