Omega Seamaster 300M James Bond
The emblematic blue Omega Seamaster
The pioneer Omega Seamaster 300M diver was introduced in 1993, in both quartz and automatic versions. These are easy to recognize for their iconic features: the blue wave pattern dial, the scalloped bezel and the blue bezel insert, all inspired by Omega’s maritime legacy.
These are water resistant up to 300 meters (1,000 ft) and have an extra crown at 10 o’clock. This is the manual helium valve, which is used when completing saturation dives, to allow the helium gas to escape without blowing off the sapphire crystal.
It’s impossible to discuss this watch without mentioning its connection to James Bond. In 1995, it appeared on Pierce Brosnan’s wrist in GoldenEye, and became the first Omega watch worn by Her Majesty’s secret agent. What followed was decades of partnership, with Bond sporting an Omega Seamaster or two in each movie.
