Are you a seamaster?
“A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor.”
Franklin D. Roosevelt.
OMEGA’s new Seamaster is definitely capable of mastering even the roughest sea. You may have already read my last blogpost about the new Seamaster Diver 300m. I’m happy to be a longterm ambassador of Omega – so let’s dive a little deeper:
Omega Seamaster History
The OMEGA Seamaster line was launched in 1948 and is the oldest in the current OMEGA collection. The Seamaster was first intended as a robust yet elegant watch for active individuals who wanted a watch for “town, sea and country” – inspired by waterproof watches from the British military.
A traveller’s dream
So basically the best watch for travellers like myself. Okay, I have to admit – I’m an involuntary traveller since my wife always “forces” me to travel the world with her ;-) But since I have to travel with her I at least want to travel in style. This doesn’t only mean a stylish watch, but I appreciate a nice place to stay (with a proper wardrobe and enough space to hang clothes) :) Well, and the OMEGA Seamaster is indeed a beautiful and refined timeless gem for the traveller’s wrist.
The color palette
When it comes to style I also try to avoid too many colors while travelling – or at least, if you like colors, adjust the palette to the destination and don’t go for super sporty looks. Most of the time you don’t need to look like a sale rack from the sportswear shop. You can indeed also wear elegant clothes and maybe even a suit – okay, normally not for a swim in the ocean, but maybe fo a romantic dinner with your wife. ;)
Omega Seamaster Diver 300m
The new Seamaster got an updated caliber 8800 Master Chronometer/METAS-certified movement – an upgrade from the caliber 2500 found in the previous Seamaster 300m model. The new caliber is highly accurate and durable, and the fact that they are essentially impervious to magnetic fields of any strength you’re apt to encounter in real life is a considerable plus for travellers again.
Water resistance to the bone
The 300m new re-designed and patented helium escape valve has been designed so that if its accidentally left open, the watch is still water resistant. To underline the seamaster’s heritage the dial is engraved with an extremely precise rendition laser cut wave pattern. The Seamaster 2018 edition also is the first version to feature a see-through sapphire case back.
Besides the all new and highly advanced and precise technology the new Seamaster Diver 300m indeed is the most beautiful watch for me at the moment. I’m especially in love with the black version I showed you last time, but also the more playful blue version shown here is really an eye-catcher. Speaking of eye-catcher – you may have also already noticed the watch on the new advertising campaign with Daniel Craig, who is one of OMEGA’s ambassadors.
