A Week On The Wrist: The Omega Seamaster Diver 300M

The brand new technology of Seamasters have been nicknamed “The Sub Killer” by the web and social media hive thoughts. However I feel it undermines the legacy and character of every of those watches to take present market circumstances into consideration. It is a Sub Killer within the sense that this watch steals gross sales as a result of substitution impact. However that additionally implies that consumers are certainly substituting this watch to satiate the need for a Submariner, when that isn’t fully the case. In fact, this may occur to an extent, however we have now to watch out to not pigeonhole. We frequently see it with Tudor – on this case, a Pelagos – one other watch to which we’re evaluating the Seamaster. “You settled for a Tudor since you couldn’t discover a Sub” is what you would possibly learn in feedback. Nevertheless, it simply merely isn’t the case more often than not. There are many individuals who need a Submariner, and there are many individuals who respect the legacy of the Seamaster as effectively.

Each fashions have a Bond tie-in. They’re related when it comes to specs, and so they typically have the identical total instrument watch design (though the Sea-Dweller is perhaps a greater comparability on account of the HEV). In virtually each facet on paper, they’re straightforward to check: a ceramic bezel, 300 meters of water resistance, stainless-steel case and bracelet, a stellar motion. However I feel we should always make a degree of not assigning any kind of attribute to the Seamaster based mostly on the shortage of the Submariner. That being mentioned, the Seamaster on a bracelet is $5,200 at retail and the comparable Submariner is $8,950.
