It was just last year that Omega revamped one of its most prestigious models by updating the “Seamaster Diver 300M” collection with various new options. Now in 2019 they extended it a bit further by combining ceramic and titanium in this new stealth-like edition, set to enter the market in around spring.
The 43.5mm case is made of black ceramic with a transparent sapphire crystal exhibition case back, which allows to view the inner workings of the mechanical movement. The screw-on portion of the case back is made out of grade-5 titanium with the patented OMEGA “NAIAD LOCK” lock, which ensures all the technical information and other engraving always synch into the exact place.
Mounted to the case is a unidirectional titanium bezel with a black ceramic insert ring, which features a 60-minute scale made of white enamel. It comes equipped with a titanium setting-crown embossed with the Omega logo. There is also a helium escape valve at the 10 o’clock position, which assists the water-resistance on this watch being able to reach up to 300 meters (984 feet). All topped by a sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating on both sides.
Time is exhibited on a black ceramic dial with white round dotted hour index markers, single rectangle markers for the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions and a double rectangle marker for the 12 o’clock spot. Alongside the inner flange of the dial are portions of white printed railroad-type minute index markers, divided by single markers for every 5-minute increment.
In the background the black dial is characterized by a white-toned positive relief wave pattern, which runs through all of its surface. The tips of the hollowed out central hands and all the hour index markers have been given a luminescent filling, for an enhanced legibility.
