  • Catalogue Essay

    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 professional-grade wristwatches. Although the Seamaster 300 was not Omega’s first dive watch model, it was the first true professional dive watch. It received an official water resistance rating of 200 meters - the maximum depth to which the company could test its timepieces back then. As with the other two references, the Seamaster 300 features the rare and attractive broad arrow hour hand, giving it an extremely recognizable look which has become highly coveted amongst watch enthusiasts around the world. The broad hands allow for high legibility in all conditions, and the revolving bezel was specially designed to aid with decompression time.

    The case of the present watch is in overall great condition with the lugs well preserved, and the hands and hour markers have developed a warm patina which further embellishes the beauty of this vintage Omega. Our research shows that the present watch is fresh to the auction market, making it a truly exquisite watch to collect.

  • Artist Biography

    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.
