Omega is re-issuing the Seamaster 300 this year, and here is your first look. Originally introduced in 1957, the OMEGA Seamaster 300 makes a comeback in 2014 complete with Omega’s most advanced design and watchmaking innovations. Interesting, among other details, is the “Master Co-Axial” notation on the dial (photo below), the “sandwich dial”, bracelet with polished center links with fine adjustment, ceragold bezel inlay (two-tone model), and “broad-arrow” hands. This watch will hit retail display cases November 2014.

This classic timepiece features a polished black ceramic unidirectional rotating bezel with a Liquidmetal OMEGA Ceragold™ diving scale. The dot at 12 o’clock is coated with Super-LumiNova that emits a green light.
Master Co-Axial” notation on the dial. And is that a “sandwich dial” with recessed (cut-out) hour markers? Nice creme-colored “vintage” touch as well.
The Seamaster 300 is available with a stainless steel case and matching bracelet or with a bi-colour blend of
stainless steel and 18K OMEGA Sedna™ gold – an exclusive material that is made with gold, palladium and copper.
41mm case, automatic mechanical Omega Cal 8400 (co-axial escapement, anti-magnetic, double-barrel, silicon balance spring)
The Seamaster 300 is equipped with the new OMEGA Master Co-Axial calibre 8400. This automatic mechanical movement has a time zone function and a three-level escapement wheel and, making use of the world premiere anti-magnetic technology the brand introduced in 2012 in the cal 8508, resists magnetic fields greater than 15,000 gauss.
A total of 6 different versions will be offered — steel, titanium, steel/gold and titanium/gold, gold and platinum. The ‘basic’ stainless steel version with black dial and bezel will price at 5,000 EUR titanium version with blue bezel and dial will price at 6,000 EUR (sorry no $ prices yet).
This one’s a winner, no doubt.
