OMEGA’s Seamaster 300 is an admired and renowned watch, with a history that stretches back to 1957. The classic design has provided the perfect starting point for this year’s new model in platinum-gold. For admirers of precious materials, it is distinguished by a lapis lazuli dial that radiates beauty.
Lapis lazuli is an intensely deep blue semi-precious stone. It is composed of lazurite, which gives it a fabulous “ultramarine” colour and was once described by Marco Polo as “the finest azure in the world”. The stone has been used by royal dynasties since antiquity, especially in ancient Egypt, where it was carved and polished into statues and other important objects.
In wonderful balance with the lapis lazuli dial, OMEGA has crafted the 41 mm case of this timepiece in platinum-gold. The facetted hands are in 18K white gold, while the bezel ring is polished blue ceramic with a platinum Liquidmetal™ diving scale.
Strap and Movement
The watch is presented on a blue leather strap and is driven by the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8913. The movement and the full watch have been officially certified by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS).
