The Seamaster 300 was Omega's response to the Rolex Submariner upon its introduction in 1957.
Featuring a robust steel case with a 300-meter depth rating, a rotating bezel graduated with dive-timing scales, and a metal bracelet with diver's expansion links, the early Seamaster 300 was not only functional a diver that would go on to see use in Her Majesty's Navy, but is arguably some of the handsomest sports watch designs of the past century.
As it evolved, the Omega Seamaster 300 went on to see numerous evolutionary changes, with nearly innumerable variants in a variety of materials and colorways produced in the past 60 years. This fact alone has made the Seamaster Professional line (as it came to be known) so desirable to a large portion of the collector community — simply because they don't all look exactly the same.
One of the watershed design motifs began in the 1990s with the introduction of blue and black “wave” dials popularized by Pierce Brosnan's 007 in the 1996 Bond film Goldeneye. This design language lives on well after the 90s ended in both modern James Bond-themed limited editions and in the core collection.
This particular piece, a reference 126.96.36.199.01.001, dates to circa 2020. It features the now-classic twisted-lug case design in 42mm with a helium escape valve at 10:00, a scalloped bezel in black ceramic, a black wave with luminous indices and matching skeletonized sword handset, 300 meters of water resistance, a matching steel bracelet, and the impressive Omega Master Chronometer Calibre 8800 automatic movement. True to the first 300 Professional from nearly 30 years prior, it’s a watch that nevertheless possesses "all of the usual refinements!"
In excellent, lightly worn condition, it comes with its inner and outer boxes, books, pictogram cards, warranty card, serialized hang tag and leather card holder.
