In the list of diving watches, Omega Seamaster 300 always manages its principal position. Many variants were then introduced and with each new model, specifications and features were upgraded in what people wanted and what an iconic watch should be in terms of design and precision.

The Omega Seamaster collection was first announced in 1948 made especially for the British Royal Navy, it was the time of celebration of the 100th anniversary of Omega. Seamaster is the oldest and longest-running line of brand and is still being produced. It is not wrong to refer this watch to be the most innovative version of Omega Marine ” First Divers Watch”.

The sophisticated design and the detailed expertise were carried forward from Marine to create the very first iconic model with enhanced specification never introduced before in the world of luxury watchmaking.

The original version of this series was only water-resistant to 60 meters and was not a part of professional diving, but with the introduction of the later 300 series, watch for divers was reintroduced in a robust manner and in a completely enhanced form to meet the needs of the new generation.

Omega’s famous Trilogy:

The first appearance of the most famous Iconic timepiece now and then was seen in 1957 as the part of the Famous Trilogy. The famous trilogy is a collection of 3 robust watches Speedmaster, Railmaster, and most importantly the Seamaster 300.  Speedmaster (also known to be the first watch worn at the moon) is an iconic version of the series and counted as one of the best watches in the collection due to its complicated features embedded in it. It was also part of the Olympic and still being used as the official timekeeper in the Olympics. Railmaster is a different kind of featured watch, as we are familiar with the watch that is water resistant, chronographs, and the timekeeper version of Omega series, but it is not wrong to say that Railmaster is a watch designed for Scientists. A watch that is unaffected by a magnetic field so that it can be used in the laboratory.
