Recognising different Omega Seamaster Diver’s watch models

A glance at any of the current Omega Seamaster diver’s watches should be time enough to determine which stable it belongs to. If BOTH hands have arrowhead pointers – it’s an Omega Planet Ocean. If just the hour hand has the arrowhead it’s the Omega Seamaster 300. But, when the hands are hollow, with a triangular luminous marker on the minute hand and round luminous marker on the hour hand, it’s an Omega Seamaster Diver 300m. However, when it’s an Omega Ploprof … it’s obvious with it’s distinctive helium release valve. More detail below ….

Confused between models?

If you are finding it hard to distinguish between the dif[ferent Omega models – in particular the Omega Seamaster 300, the Omega Seamaster Diver 300m and the Planet Ocean hopefully this will help.
