Don’t confuse this Omega Seamaster 300 with the Omega Seamaster Professional Diver 300m or the Seamaster Planet Ocean. A quick glance at any of these models should be time enough to determine which model it is. If BOTH hands have arrowhead pointers – it’s an Omega Planet Ocean. If ONLY the hour hand has the arrowhead it’s the Seamaster 300featured here. The Seamaster Diver 300m is totally different with distinctive skeletal (hollow) hands.

Master Coaxial Movement

There’s no doubt the Seamaster impresses from the exterior – but it’s inside that the really beauty can be found. Powered by Omega’s Master Coaxial Calibres 8400, 8402 and 8800 movements (model dependent) – the Seamaster excels in mechanical chronometer accuracy.

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 Omega Planet Ocean hopefully this will help.

Omega Seamaster 300 hands

The hands of an Omega Seamaster 300 original

If it’s an Omega Seamaster 300 you are interested in – please check the hands look like these above. Just the hour hand with the arrowhead – the minute hand has no arrowhead. We see about 50 – 75% of eBay listings wrongly referring to the Diver 300m as a Seamaster 300. They are both great watches – but please ensure you are getting what you want.

The Omega Seamaster Diver 300m is far more common than the Seamaster 300. It’s clearly distinguishable from the others with it’s hollow hands. One with triangular luminous tip (minute hand) and the hour hand with a round luminous marker

Omega Planet Ocean hands

These are the hands of an Omega Planet Ocean. Both hands are solid and both terminate in a luminous arrowhead.
