Seamaster Diver 300M
Seamaster Diver 300M

OMEGA’s recent makeover of the iconic Seamaster Diver 300M collection has integrated many of the brand’s modern materials and technologies. In 2019, the evolution will continue with a bold new model built from black ceramic and titanium. This edgy combination delivers good looks as well as strength, and will certainly add an exciting new choice within the range.

Sized at 43.5 mm, the watch is distinguished by its polished/brushed black ceramic case and grade 5 titanium caseback. The bezel is also formed with a grade 5 titanium base and includes a black ceramic ring with a diving scale in white enamel.

On the brushed black ceramic dial, OMEGA has laser-engraved the Diver 300M’s famous waves. Unlike the core collection, however, these waves are raised from the surface in a “positive relief” to create a unique effect. Also on the dial are PVD titanium hands and indexes, which are all filled with white Super-LumiNova.

Turning the watch over reveals the wave- edged titanium caseback, which is designed with OMEGA’s NAIAD LOCK system to keep all wording in perfect position. Through the caseback’s sapphire crystal, you’ll find the OMEGA Master Chronometer Calibre 8806, tested and certified by METAS at the industry’s highest standard of precision, performance and magnetic resistance.

Finally, this new model is available on an integrated black rubber strap with a buckle in black ceramic.

 

 

SPEEDMASTER APOLLO
SPEEDMASTER APOLLO 11 50th Anniversary Limited Edition

There were many world-changing moments that defined the first lunar landing in 1969. From famous words to dusty footprints, it was a mission that remains unforgettable in so many ways. On the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11, OMEGA is proud to unveil a new Speedmaster Limited Edition that pays tribute to those iconic hours.

Now, you can wear the first watch worn on the moon and also relive its journey.

STILL A PIONEER

The Speedmaster made watchmaking history on the 21st of July 1969. Today its pioneering spirit still remains through the use of a new material known as 18K Moonshine™ gold. This exclusive patentpending alloy is a paler hue than traditional yellow gold and offers high resistance to fading over time. As you explore the surface of the watch, you’ll find 18K Moonshine™ gold throughout the design.

ENGINEERING AT ITS BEST

Innovation was key to the Apollo 11 success. OMEGA has followed that theme with a 42 mm case in stainless steel and a polished bezel made from 18K Moonshine™ gold. The bezel ring itself is polished black ceramic [ZrO2 ] with a radiant OMEGA Ceragold™ tachymeter scale. Two distinct zones make up the dial, including a varnished central grey zone and an outer black minute track. 18K Moonshine™ gold is used for the bevelled indexes, vintage OMEGA logo and all of the hands – except for the central chronograph seconds hand, which is “PVD-coated” in Moonshine™ Gold.

ICONIC TRIBUTES

Buzz Aldrin was wearing an OMEGA Speedmaster when he climbed down from the Eagle to reach the lunar surface at 03:15:16 UTC. At that second, his timepiece became the first watch worn on the moon. On the 9 o’clock subdial of this new Limited Edition, OMEGA has laser-engraved the image of Buzz on a Moonshine™ Gold plate. Distinct from all other indexes, the 11 o’clock hour marker is formed by an 18K Moonshine™ Gold number 11, in tribute to the Apollo mission. Going where no human had gone before. Featured on the caseback is an image of an astronaut’s footprint, which has been laser-engraved onto a black-coated plate with a moon-surface texture. «THAT’S ONE SMALL STEP FOR A MAN, ONE GIANT LEAP FOR MANKIND». Neil Armstrong’s legendary words have echoed through time. Now, they are written on the caseback of this watch in 18K Moonshine™ Gold-plated lettering.

THE CASEBACK

Only 6,969 pieces are available in this Limited Edition collection. Proud owners will find their unique number engraved in black on the caseback, along with APOLLO 11, 50th ANNIVERSARY and LIMITED EDITION. Also engraved, yet blending in with the steel, are NAIAD LOCK, Cal. 3861 and CO-AXIAL MASTER CHRONOMETER.

MOONWATCH MOVEMENT

The brand new OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 3861 takes the next evolutionary step for the famous Moonwatch movement. It took 4 years of trial-and-error to create the calibre’s most recent incarnation. OMEGA was determined to produce a movement of the highest standard, yet perfectly match the dimensions of the 1861. That goal has been achieved. Now crafted with Co-Axial technology, a stop-second function and OMEGA’s superior anti-magnetic innovation, the Speedmaster Moonwatch is resistant to magnetic fields of 15,000 gauss and has been able to reach the Master Chronometer standard, which assures the industry’s highest certified level of precision, chronometric performance and magnetic resistance.

ASTRONAUT KIT

The watch is presented on a polished-brushed metallic bracelet with a vintage Ω on the clasp: a design inspired by the bracelet of the 4th generation Speedmaster (ST 105.012-65). For the customer’s own mission, however, this new Limited Edition comes with another special option. Inside the NASA-style presentation box, you’ll find an additional Velcro® strap with black-coated cork. This innovative design is a salute to the Apollo-era “boost protective cover” – a fiberglass structure covered with cork which fitted over the Command Module like a glove, keeping the crew of the Saturn V rocket safe from the intense heat produced at launch. The box also includes two mission patches (50th anniversary / Apollo 11), two engraved plates (landing site coordinates / landing site and time) as well as a strap-changing tool. Best of all, it houses the ultimate Lunar Model display stand.

Since 1993, the Seamaster Diver 300M has enjoyed a legendary following.

This 42 mm model is a Limited Edition of 2,500 pieces and features a brushed case made from grade 2 titanium, with a crown, bezel ring and helium escape valve in 18K Sedna™ gold. In contrast, OMEGA has used tantalum to create the base of the bezel for a distinctive blue-grey tone.

The titanium dial features positive sun-brushed waves. The skeleton hands and raised indexes are 18K Sedna™ gold and are filled with white Super-LumiNova.

The watch is presented on a grade 2 titanium bracelet with tantalum and 18K Sedna™ gold links. An image of the OMEGA Seahorse can be found on the transparent case back, through which you can see the OMEGA Master Chronometer Calibre 8806 inside.

Self-winding movement with a Co-Axial escapement. Certified Master Chronometer, approved by METAS, resistant to magnetic fields reaching 15,000 gauss. Free sprung-balance with silicon balance spring, automatic winding in both directions. Special luxury finish with rhodium-plated rotor and bridges with Geneva waves in arabesque.
