Omega Seamaster Professional Chronometer 300M 126.96.36.199.03.001 Men’s Watch

Almost 70 years back, a legend was born. The Omega Seamaster Professional Chronometer, since then, has evolved into a dressier, sportier watch; turning increasingly elegant with the passing years. Today, it goes as much with a suit as well as your weekend hiking boots and cargo shorts, making a true divers’ watch establish its reign on an urban territory. Courtesy: the 41 mm case diameter.
The Omega Seamaster Pro is one among the truly iconic pieces to find a permanent place in a serious watch collection. Omega upgraded the Seamaster a couple of years back and practically, every single upgrade turned the watch better than its predecessor.
There are only three things from the past that exist in the current Omega Seamaster Professional Chronometer 300M 188.8.131.52.03.001 Men’s Watch - a performance far beyond the capacities of the testing devices; a highly water-resistant crystal and crown and an iconic Seahorse on the case-back. Apart from that, nothing is common between the old and the new Omega Seamaster Professional Chronometer 300M 184.108.40.206.03.001 Men’s Watch.
The newer version of OMEGA Seamaster 300 M Chronometer boasts of a distinctive polished and brushed finish over the stainless steel. The anti-reflective, domed sapphire crystal is entirely scratch-resistant. Inside the case is OMEGA’s calibre 2500 self-winding mechanical movement, which gained both prominence and high-performance grades due to the revolutionary Co-Axial Escapement mechanism. The Co-Axial mechanism reduces friction between the moving parts, which translates into better accuracy in the long run, keeping its chronometer certification intact.
The Omega Seamaster Professional Chronometer 300M 220.127.116.11.03.001 Men’s Watch houses everything considered essential by professional divers. Among these, the unidirectional rotating bezel and the helium escape valve need to be mentioned first and while no desk diver or weekend party animal will feel the need of using the latter (the valve allows accumulated helium atoms from saturation diving to escape during decompression), the rotating bezel can be used to set the span of your every activity; from keeping track of the ticking of the parking meter to counting the minutes for moist heat cooking. The white, Super-LumiNova filled hands are essential to read time in darkness; it doesn’t matter if you are in the bed, in the wilderness or several hundred feet under water. The screw-in case back and crown ensure a massive water resistance. It has been built to allure the diver but its seduction powers go well beyond that. The Omega Co-Axial Professional Chronometer 300M 18.104.22.168.03.001 Men’s Watch fascinates everyone looking for something that’s rare and also state-of-the-art!
Now, this is the standard bezel version of the SeaMaster and not ceramics, which helps to keep the price lower. It also imparts the watch a clean look and gives it an excellent value. The watch owes its clean look also to the removal of the wave patterns on the dial and instead, brings a solid, glossy finish that has more access to both urban and professional sides of life.
