OMEGA has released a new Seamaster 300 watch, the main change is the replacement of external materials. The basic specifications of the watch itself are exactly the same as other online models (the movement is still slightly changed), such as 41mm diameter, 14.65mm thickness, 300 meters water resistance, pointer and time mark style, etc. have not changed, but This time, the brand has added platinum or yellow gold, the former with lapis lazuli, and the latter with malachite. This is a new attempt for Omega, but there are also some brands such as Rolex, Piaget, or JJ Home and other used the same material, which may reflect the high-end market’s preference for such combinations.
The Seamaster 300 has recently launched two precious metal versions. In particular, the face plate has been replaced with lapis lazuli and malachite, which are highly decorative materials.
The new Seamaster 300 watch is equipped with the 8913 Master Observatory coaxial escapement movement. The movement uses an 18K Sedna gold automatic disc and balance bridge. As for the fixing screws and balance, they are all black-plated. In addition, the movement is equipped with a dual barrel that can output 60 hours of kinetic energy, and the vibration frequency is a relatively rare 25,200vph. Of course, since the name of the master observatory is attached, this means that the antimagnetic performance of the model has also reached 15,000 Gauss.
Compared with the current Seamaster 300 watch, the new model includes the same diameter, water resistance and pointer time stamp style, but the new model is replaced with the 8913 movement, and there are still some differences in the detailed configuration of the movement.
In heart, the lapis lazuli or malachite face plate is still relatively high-end and niche markets, but because the Seamaster 300 itself is quite a favorite diving watch in the market, you can easily change the strap on sports watches and formal watches The styles of the two dials are free to switch. The blue and green of the two dials are very special, with a little dreamy feeling. By the way, their pointer material also corresponds to the case material, from the dial to the case. All exude the Seamaster 300’s relatively rare aristocratic style.
Rare ore-made face plates, whether they are malachite green or lapis lazuli blue, look rich in layers and change the monochrome to be more attractive.
However, at present, both models are still only at the stage of staircases. It is known that the official sale will take place after October. The price of Taiwan dollars is currently unclear, but in terms of foreign quotations, the platinum lapis lazuli is again better than yellow K malachite. The models are almost twice as expensive, but at this price level, it seems that it is safer to treat these two models as formal watches.
