THE SEAMASTER DIVER 300M COLLECTION
Since 1993, the Seamaster Diver 300M has enjoyed a legendary following. This year, the collection celebrates 25 years with a full makeover from the inside out. The original design and ocean spirit are still there, but now with advanced materials and updates in every model.
EXPLORING THE DETAILS
Now sized at 42 mm, every design detail has been rethought, including a new ceramic bezel with the diving scale in Ceragold™ or white enamel. Inside, the watches include the Master Chronometer Calibre 8800, instantly taking the collection into a higher realm of precision, performance and magnetic resistance.
“On the bezel, white enamel offers longer-lasting whiteness and durability.”
Again, at first glance, not too much has changed. The bracelet looks the same as previous versions, but it feels much nicer on the wrist and in the hand. It leans hard to dressy rather than utilitarian, but that’s absolutely OK by me (if the bracelet isn’t your jam, I’d highly recommend the equally excellent rubber strap option). Overall, the bracelet has a great quality feel – I suspect a lot of engineers and designers spent a lot of hours improving the fit and feel of this bracelet. Often the bracelet is an area where watch brands skimp on the quality, but that’s most definitely not the case here.
Turning the watch over reveals a wave-patterned edge on the caseback, as well as sapphire crystal, through which you can see the METAS-approved Master Chronometer Calibre 8800.
