Omega’s First Green-Dialled Seamaster Diver 300m

Omega Seamaster Diver 300m Green

The Seamaster Diver 300m has done hugely well for Omega since its inception in 1993. Between its connection to everyone’s most emotionally repressed superspy and its signature wavy dial, it’s always been a solid, practical diver at the kind of depths most of us will aspire to. Less extreme than the new Ultra-Deeps, but more of an everyday, versatile timepiece.

So, as green is still a huge part of the current horological zeitgeist (and will be for the foreseeable), it was overdue that the 300m gets its own verdant revamp – and the Seamaster Diver 300m Green has been worth the wait.

Now, aside from the colour there’s not much actually new here. The 42mm stainless steel case and protruding helium escape valve are the same as ever – solid and satisfyingly utilitarian – and the Master Chronometer calibre 8800 automatic movement is beyond reliable. In short, the Seamaster 300m earns the ‘Diver’ in its name.

So, onto the dial. The militaristic green suits a watch made famous by 007 and is a seriously lovely alternative to the incredibly popular blue version. I still don’t think this will quite get to that level of popularity but if the latest Speedmaster ’57 models are anything to go by, hopefully it bodes well for more colours in the future. The dial’s matched with a ceramic bezel with a bright diving scale in grand feau enamel. It’s the Omega equivalent of a Hulk and I love it.

The new piece is available on either a green rubber strap if you feel like actually testing out its specs, or a slightly redesigned stainless steel bracelet. A minor tweak it may be, but the bracelet has a new integration into the case, making it a touch more elegant. It’s still not dressy, but it’ll serve you well at the boat club post dive.
