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 one 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.
Omega went on to create numerous limited-edition Seamaster 300s in celebration of its partnership with the James Bond 007 franchise. While some of these featured the now-famous “wave” dial motif popularized by the film Goldeneye, others featured gloss-black or other variants.
This particular piece, a Reference 22.214.171.124.01.001, dates to circa 2007. It features the now-classic twisted-lug case design in 41mm with a helium escape valve at 10:00, a scallopedbezel in black ceramic, a black dial with luminous indices and matching skeletonized sword handset (plus the 007 logo at the seconds hand’s counterbalance — cool!), 300 meters of water resistance, a matching steel bracelet, and the impressive Omega Calibre 2500 automatic movement with co-axial escapement. True to the first 300 Professional from nearly 30 years prior, it’s a watch that nevertheless possesses "all of the usual refinements!"
In good condition, this special collector’s-edition Seamaster — limited to 10,007 pieces — is perfect for both the Bond enthusiast or someone in search of a perfect everyday wrist companion.
