The purpose of this page is twofold. One – to provide easy access to general information on this iconic Omega dive watch. Two – to help potential buyers locate pre-owned & new models online. Please support this site by visiting our shopping partners – thank you.
Don’t confuse the Seamaster 300 with the 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 300 – featured here. The Seamaster Diver 300m is totally different with distinctive skeletal (hollow) hands.

Seamaster 300 – rebirth of a classic
It was 1957 when Omega introduced the Seamaster 300. Designed specifically for divers and underwater professionals. Fast forward another 50 years and Omega have kindly reintroduced the Seamaster 300. Maintaining all the aesthetic qualities of the original Omega have completely upgraded and enhanced this classic watch. Stuffed with new and innovative technical features have ensured the Seamaster 300 is here to equip the next generation of adventurers on land and in the sea.
It was 2014 when Omega released this new version of the Seamaster 300. After several years in production the new MK2 is now available in over 16 different model variants. Available with leather, steel, gold or titanium straps and an equally impressive range of case materials. All models are powered by Omega’s superb Master Coaxial Calibres 8400, 8402 and 8800
Presented in the perfect case size – 42mm – the Seamaster Master Co-Axial is certified to depths of 300m or a pressure of 30Bar – a true diver’s watch with no compromise and style by the bucket full.
Counterfeit warning – shoppers must make their own judgement to determine the authenticity of any watch before buying it – avoid buying a fake watch

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.
The Omega Calibre 8400 – a Self-winding movement with Co-Axial escapement. It’s resistant to magnetic fields greater than 15,000 gauss. Featuring a free sprung-balance with silicon balance spring, two barrels mounted in series, automatic winding in both directions. The bridges and oscillating weight are both decorated with an exclusive Geneva wave design in arabesque
The Omega Calibre 8401 – a Self-winding movement with Co-Axial escapement. Featuring free sprung-balance, 2 barrels mounted in series, automatic winding in both directions.

Once fully wound from it’s automatic motion wound movement – the Seamaster will run for 60 hours. If the watch has been off the wrist for some time it can be boosted by manual winding without the need to pull out the crown (sometimes referred to as hacking)
