My current trip to Myanmar (formerly known as Burma) has opened a dreamlike world of visual treasures. The new Omega Seamaster Diver 300M is my steady companion and a treasure of it’s own.

Open minded

Upon entering the country Myanmar you will be welcomed by an abundance of smiles. Maybe it’s because of the Buddhist roots or also because of the fact it still is a rather unspoiled destination – especially when compared to Thailand or Indonesia.

Residence

The first impressions of the country I collected were at the colonial style Governor’s Residence in Yangon. Probably the most beautiful hotel in the city – the wooden structures are adorned with lots of exotic plants and let you feel immersed into a green oasis amidst the city’s chaos. The residence immediately transfers you into a dreamy asian mood.

This place also created the perfect location to show you the new Omega Seamaster Diver 300m, which I get to wear for a while now. Well, yes – Yangon is not at the seaside and the pool also isn’t 300 meters deep – but the combination of luxury places like the Belmond Governor’s Residence and the unique craftsmanship of the Master Chronometer is quite intriguing.

The Diver

Diver watches have been fashionable outside of deep water since a long time. Their screwable crown and bigger indexes are iconic and give them that unique look. I already loved this look when I grew up, but obviously didn’t have the money to get a solid watch. So, now in my advanced age I’m more than happy Omega came up with this remake!

Heritage into the future

The Omega Seamaster celebrates it’s 25th anniversary with a full makeover this year. The Seamaster comes in a 42mm diameter and with a new ceramic bezel with the diving scale in Ceragold™ or white enamel. Inside, the watch includes the Master Chronometer Calibre 8800, which makes it one of the most precise timepieces on the market. The Master Chronometer also has magnetic resistance which keeps the precision ongoing.

The updates

The new patented conical helium escape valve of the Seamaster allows you to operate it underwater. To give the whole watch a more symmetrical look the date window has moved to 6 o’clock. The back got a wave-patterned edge as well as sapphire crystal glass, through which you can see the METAS-approved Master Chronometer Calibre 8800.
