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.
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.
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.
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 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.

My Omega Seamaster choice
One of my favourite options is the steel on steel Master Chronometer with black dial as shown in this post. An absolutely timeless and iconic masterpiece. – check the full specs here!
