The OMEGA Seamaster Diver 300M has become one of the cornerstone products of the brand’s modern catalog. First introduced in 1993, the OMEGA Seamaster Diver 300M is a refined take on the professional dive watch that was chosen as the original James Bond watch when OMEGA began its collaboration with the James Bond franchise and was the model worn exclusively by 007 agents in the Bond films of the 1990s.
Featuring a scalloped diver’s bezel, skeletonized sword-shaped hands, and a manually operated helium drain valve protruding from the side of the case at 10 o’clock, the OMEGA Seamaster Diver 300M has a unique design language that permeates every watch in the collection. Regardless of the colors, complications, or materials of the swiss replica watches, all Seamaster Diver 300M watches are immediately recognizable as members of OMEGA’s iconic collection.
Since the standard time and date model (especially the blue dial variant) was the model worn by James Bond and the most popular configuration of the Seamaster Diver 300M, the chronograph model (as a whole) offers an impressive array of functions and a similar overall aesthetic – only with pushers on either side of the winding crown and a corresponding set of indexes on the dial.
Moreover, since OMEGA also produces a chronograph version of the Seamaster Planet Ocean, it’s easy to see how these other Seamaster chronographs could escape the attention of buyers. On top of that, the Speedmaster is probably the first watch that comes to mind when most people think of Omega’s chronographs, and with the brand’s many other great chronograph sports watches, it’s easy to see why these Seamaster Diver 300M chronograph models are often missed.
While these Omega dive chronographs are often overlooked, they have a lot going for them and their overlooked status means that they offer great value for money when you find them on the second-hand market. They combine the durability of a professional diver with advanced features that make them excellent sports watches that can be worn every day in a variety of different environments.
The Omega Seamaster Diver 300M model is a professional dive watch that also features a 12-hour chronograph. Otherwise, these Seamaster dive best swiss watches replica are not overtly in appearance; they offer a classic yet versatile look that retains a certain level of refinement despite being a highly capable sports watch. While the standard models of the previous generation could be found in 41.5 mm or 44 mm cases, the regatta and GMT versions are only available in 44 mm cases.
These Omega Seamaster Diver 300M chronographs follow to a large extent the core design language of the 1990s. However, they are completely modern timepieces from the inside out and offer the user many modern features such as ceramic bezel inserts and sapphire crystals. These watches are by no means traditional pieces, nor are they attempt to emulate anything from the past. Instead, they are modern sports watches that just stay close to the original design.
These multifunction chronographs are still dived watches at their core, and they offer all the standard features you might expect to find in them. Their stainless steel cases are water-resistant to 300 meters (1,000 feet), their clasps include foldable wetsuit extensions, and all models are equipped with 60-minute unidirectional chronograph bezels fitted with durable ceramic inserts. Protecting its dial is a domed, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, and all the different versions also include a manually operated helium vent located at 10 o’clock on the side of the case.

These newer versions of the Seamaster Diver 300M Chronograph feature an advanced gasket system that allows them to be operated at depth, making them one of the few dive chronographs that can actually be operated while diving.
