    In 1957, Omega released the Seamaster 300 model, which, together with the Speedmaster and the Railmaster, was dubbed by watch enthusiasts as the “Holy Trinity” of Omega’s professional-grade wristwatches. The Seamaster 300 was a “professional” watch that met the challenges of the deep-sea. The design featured a spring device in the crown assembly that became tighter as pressure built during a dive, creating more waterproof capability.

    The present Seamaster 300 stands out by its beautifully ghosted bezel, which has metamorphosed into a gorgeous tone of midnight blue that contrasts nicely with the creamy indexes. The Seamaster 300 features the rare and attractive broad hands, giving the watch an extremely recognizable look which has become highly coveted amongst watch enthusiasts around the globe. This Omega Seamaster 300 wristwatch is a rare opportunity for collectors of sports watches to own an extremely rare example of one of Omega’s most sought after diver’s watches.

    Omega

    Swiss • 1848

    Omega's rich history begins with its founder, Louis Brandt, who established the firm in 1848 in La Chaux de Fonds. In 1903, the company changed its name to Omega, becoming the only watch brand in history to have been named after one its own movements. A full-fledged manufacturer of highly accurate, affordable and reliable watches, its sterling reputation enabled them to be chosen as the first watch company to time the Olympic Games beginning in 1932. Its continued focus on precision and reliability ultimately led their Speedmaster chronograph wristwatch to be chosen by NASA in 1965 — the first watch worn on the moon.

    Key models sought-after by collectors include their first, oversized water-resistant chronograph — the reference 2077, early Speedmaster models such as the CK 2915 and 2998, military-issued versions of the Seamaster and oversized chronometer models such as those fitted with their prestigious caliber 30T2Rg.
