Best Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Steel Replica Watches For 2018 Hands-On

It is important to talk about the original Omega Seamaster 300M Replica design because the new for 2018 updated models celebrate those core values and aesthetics that made the original so popular. 2018 isn’t the same as 1993 for the watch industry, but 25 years later, I think one can agree that contemporary watch tastes haven’t actually changed that much.

Omega had big marketing plans for the Seamaster 300M when it was new. Notably was its popularity both as a professional diving watch and also on the wrists of would-be 007s. Best Replica Watches used the Seamaster 300M as the British spy Bond watch during the 1990s which for many solidified the importance of the Omega Seamaster for men who followed pop culture. At the time Rolex was doing nothing of the sort to reach mainstream audiences.

One of the most iconic design elements of the Luxury Omega Seamaster 300M Replica Watch is the manual helium release valve located at 10 o’clock on the case. I’m not sure why Omega opted for a manual versus automatic helium release valve at a time when automatic valves were easy to design. My guess is that Omega simply wanted the case to have the added character created by the addition of a second crown on the case. The curious feature draws anyone’s attention who notices it. “What does that crown do?” is a common question.

While I can’t say for sure, I believe that Omega has been continually producing at least some form of the Seamaster 300M for the last 25 years. Don’t forget that Omega even added a few dive watch lines to the Seamaster collection over the years including the dressier Seamaster Planet Ocean, and the vintage-style Seamaster 300. The Seamaster 300M remained a good all-purpose mechanical sport watch, and it was also priced at an entry-level price for a mechanical Omega sport watch.

In my opinion, the Cheap Omega Replica Seamaster 300M dial with its distinctive hands and hour markers is a design that has aged well. I do admit that when I first learned about the design long ago it didn’t do much for me. It took years of looking at other sport watch dials to appreciate that Omega made something with the enduring power of a Submariner – but with a more contemporary and active feel to it.

For a long time, titanium Seamaster 300M models complimented the steel ones. To begin with, the modern generation of Seamaster 300M watches for 2018 have only one titanium model – which is a limited edition produced in titanium, Sedna gold, and tantalum. Omega Replica Watches did however produce a fair number of two-tone steel and 18k Sedna or yellow gold models. Those two-tone Seamaster 300M models are truly lovely, but they include a rather steep price increase that in my opinion takes a lot out of the really high value-proposition fun of the entirely steel Seamaster 300M models.
