The Seamaster Diver 300M is a modern congener of the Seamaster 300. Like the Seamaster 300, the Diver 300M is water-resistant to 300 m (30 bar, 984 ft), but has the added feature of a helium escape valve, operated by a crown at 10 o'clock. The watch also boasts a bezel with a curved edge and a wave pattern on its dial.
The Omega Seamaster Diver 300M collection offers three-hand watches and chronographs in a range of sizes. The choice of available materials ranges from stainless steel to titanium and ceramic. Two-tone editions are also available.
While newer Diver 300M models are powered exclusively by modern Co-Axial calibers (most of which are certified Master Chronometers), older models are equipped with quartz movements.
Depending on the watch's material, caliber, and year of manufacture, an Omega Seamaster Diver 300M will set you back between 4,900 and 10,600 USD on Chrono24.
The Diver 300M, James Bond, and the Olympics
Since 1995, the Seamaster Diver 300M has been the preferred watch of movie-screen legend James Bond. In honor of the famous fictional double-oh agent, Omega releases special editions for each new Bond film. These timepieces are usually technically identical to the standard models, but feature Bond-specific touches like the 007 logo, Bond family crest, or gun barrel pattern from the celebrated opening film sequence on the dial, case back, or rotor.
Depending on the specific model and material, a Bond edition Diver 300M in stainless steel, titanium, or red or white gold will set you back between 8,700 and 46,200 USD.
As the official timekeeper of the Olympic Games, Omega releases special editions to commemorate every Olympics. These include some interesting variants of the Diver 300M, such as the Beijing 2022 and Paris 2024 editions, celebrating the Winter and Summer Games in those cities. In terms of design, the watches usually utilize the color concept of the corresponding Olympic Games and bear the official logo as well as the Olympic rings engraved on the case back.
Plan to spend between 4,750 and 9,600 USD on a Seamaster Diver 300M Olympic Edition, depending on the variant.
