The trio of brand new Best Omega Seamaster 300 Replica references, which update the vintage-inspired Seamaster 300 Master Co-Axial collection introduced in 2014 with an even more wearable new 41mm case, and a fresh dial & bezel, all powered by Master Chronometer automatic movements.
Omega’s metallurgists even whipped up an entirely new semi-precious case material called Bronze Gold, which at first glance feels a little bit like an ‘also-ran,’ but then you realize that Omega is skipping the bronze trend entirely by offering something totally new.
The end result is an amber-colored 9k gold watch which uses less than half the amount of solid gold found in a comparable 18k Seamaster 300 clone watches. Thusly, the watch is slightly heavy only relative to its steel counterparts, and definitely lacks the very tactile “oh wow” factor that a traditional solid gold diver tends to elicit on the wrist.
And in a particularly clever twist, the Bronze Gold case frames a brown dial that has been subtly pre-aged from CuSn8, which is the more traditional bronze alloy used in many dive watch cases – just not this one.
Most of the Omega Seamaster 300 Replica dial text has been scrubbed as well, leaving only the brand wordmark and the name of the watch itself, producing a cleaner, more minimalist look that enables the timekeeping elements to remain the dial’s key focal point.
