The Omega Seamaster is probably the highest quality in and out swiss automatic watch you can get for your money when diving into the depths of entry level luxury watches. It has all you will need for everyday use, diving, and much more packed inside this $3,000 watch.
Case And Dial
The Ceramic Seamaster is available in both black and blue color schemes. The case diameter is relatively close to its’ older brother, the submariner-coming in at 41MM. In terms of thickness we are looking at 13MM while the lugs are 20Mm. The case is finely brushed with hints of polishing comprised of solid 316L steel. The finishing is very good, but not Rolex good. This diver is capable of diving to depths of 300M and even has the typical Omega Helium Escape valve at the 10:00 position, if you would ever need it. The shiniest detail has to be the Ceramic polished bezel insert which sits on top of the 120 Click Uni-Directional dive bezel. The tints of blue shining off of the Anti Reflective coated Sapphire crystal really play nicely with the bezel.
Omega is known for packing a lot of punch into their movements at relatively affordable prices in the luxury sector. This model utilizes the Omega 2500 Co-Axial movement which is a really great movement, and two steps ahead of something like an ETA or Selitta. It contains 27 Jewels, Accuracy within +2 seconds a day usually on examples I have handled, and beats at 28,800 VPH. It also features beautiful geneva striping on the rotor and bridges.
The bracelet is your typical solid steel bracelet with screwed links and a combination of brushed and polished surfaces. The clasp is signed with the Omega insignia and features a nice milled clasp as well. A dual button deployment is utilized for extra security.
Where to Buy?
So, Yearning for the best price on an Omega SM300? I certainly would never pay full retail on a watch like this and neither should you. I do purchase luxury watches on the grey market, and have been doing so for a few years now after getting ripped off by Authorized Dealers. The thing is, if you pay full retail (20% Higher)
when you go to sell your watch, you will lose a lot of money. I do reccomend JomaShop located here
in Brooklyn as they have a wide selection of luxury and entry level timepieces in stock daily. They are the largest grey market watch dealer online, and for good reason.
