The Watch-Insider´s number one Omega of the year 2014

After showing you my favorite Rolex two days ago you may now discover my Omega of the year 2014. It is probably not the one you might guess… Click on “read more” to see the watch…

 

There we go, my Omega watch of the year 2014 is the new Omega Seamster 300 Master Co-Axial.

I did choose the new Seamaster because it reunites all of the Omega´s actual technology. The new Seamster 300 Master Co-Axial is the technological spearhead of the brand.

Like the original Seamaster from 1957, the new 2014 Omega Seamster 300 Master Co-Axial features a symmetric case and a unidirectional rotating bezel as well as a dark dial, lighter indexes and big hands and numbers for easier reading in various lighting conditions.

The 41 mm Omega Seamster 300 Master Co-Axial is available in a variety of metallic materials including stainless steel, 950-platinum, grade-5-titanium and 18-carat Omega Sedna gold and bicolour options pairing grade-5-titanium and 18-carat Omega Sedna gold or stainless steel and 18-carat Sedna™ gold.

The black ceramic dial of the Omega Seamster 300 Master Co-Axial features transferred dial elements that are produced using a combination of gold and palladium. A patented process that involves a high temperature treatment enhances the white gold colour; the enamel under-layer creates the curving contour of the indexes. The 18-carat white gold central hour, minute and seconds hands are coated with so called vintage-Super-LumiNova and the hour and seconds hands emit a blue light as do the recessed hour markers. The minute hand is also coated with Super-LumiNova but emits a green light.

The stainless steel timepiece features a sand-blasted black dial which complements the polished black ceramic bezel ring decorated with a Liquidmetal diving scale. Recessed hour markers are coated with so called vintage-Super-LumiNova which emits a blue light as do the rhodium-plated hour and seconds hands; the minute hand and the dot on the bezel are coated with Super-LumiNova that emits a green light.

And one of the new models in the Seamaster 300 collection features a case and bracelet made from Omega´s 18-cata Sedna gold. This is an Omega-exclusive material that was introduced during Baselworld in 2013. Its sandblasted black dial is adorned with facetted 18-carat Omega Sedna gold hands and white transferred dial indications. The polished black ceramic bezel ring is enriched with an Omega Ceragold™ diving scale.

With the Seamster 300 Master Co-Axial Omega introduced the Master Co-Axial calibre 8400/8401. It incorporates the Co-Axial technology but also features the new anti-magnetic technology, which ensures that any timepiece equipped with a Master Co-Axial movement resists magnetic fields greater than 15,000 gauss (1.5 tesla or 1.200.000 A/m. That´s 15-times more than a Rolex Milgauss or an IWC Ingenieur can resist). The Master Co-Axial calibre 8400 powers the bi-colour, stainless steel and grade-5-titanium models while the Master Co-Axial calibre 8401, with its special luxury finish, powers the models crafted from 18-carat Omega Sedna gold and 950 platinum. Of course the calibre is an officially certified chronometer. All the Omega Seamster 300 Master Co-Axial are water resistant to 300 metres or 1000 feet. Omega offers a full four-year warranty.

The case back of each Omega Seamster 300 Master Co-Axial is engraved with “Si14”, “ANTI-MAGNETIC > 15’000 GAUSS” and, depending on what alloy the diving scale is made of, “Liquidmetal®” or “Omega Ceragold™”.

Bracelets of the Omega Seamster 300 Master Co-Axial are fashioned with the patented rack-and-pusher clasp, which is adjustable to six different positions making it possible for the watch to fit over the sleeve of a diving suit; releasing the clasp, pressing the “push” button and sliding the inner clasp to the desired fit adjust the bracelet.

  • Good Morning,

    3 hours to go until Omega is about to annannounce something according to the message above. Will you cover live, Alex?

    Kind Regards
    Michael

  • Hi All,

    I am looking for buying an Omega Speedmaster Professionsal. Can some one suggest good model in that. I liked Omega Men’s 3570.50.00. Please suggest

  • Truly a fine homage to the original look. I am still pleased with my Aqua Terra Seamaster >15000 Gauss.
    Seems as though Omega is sticking to their promise of moving to the Si coaxial as their base movement. A good move, why fight success?

  • Great choice, but I actually thought it might be the Tresor, which I LOVE, with it’s slim, rotorless Master Co-Axial movement. It is the perfect “gentleman’s” or “business” watch.

  • Perfect watch (there is no disturbing date). But not in gold or mixed. Only steel is the real thing.

  • Hi Alex.am looking to purchase a watch for my wife for our 20th anniversary. Have a budget of approximately 10000 euro.would like diamonds on the face of watch.could you give some advice on your recommendations please.

      • Am going to look at the Omega Ladies contellation today?
        Also the Jaegure Lecoultre rendevouis. And the Tag Heure Carrera.

      • Hi Alex.
        Please help.
        Went looking for my wifes watch and decided on the omega constellation with the co-axial movement 9850 euro. My wife loves the look of the watch. Then went to another jeweller’s and they tell that omega 60% of watches need to go back to the factory to get fixed. Is this true? i like the Jaeger-LeCoultre Rendez-Vous, This retails in Ireland at 12,700 euro. This is over my budget but would invest if the brand is that much better than Omega.Then the Tag Carrera automatic retailing at 6930 euro. y poor simple head is very confused.My wife would would be happy with my choice. What would you do in this situation. I greatly respect your view.
        Thanks,
        Paul

        • Paul, I don´t know why this guy told you this horror story about Omega… I can tell you THIS IS BULLSHIT. If your wife likes the Constellation, this is THE watch you two should buy…

          • Thanks. Thought as much. People will say anything to get a sale. But wanted to hear it from an educated man.this person was steering me towards tag carrera.which in a beautiful watch also.but the omega sits really well on my wife’s wrist.

          • Hi Alexander,
            Just a quick update.Have decided on the Omega ladies constellation 123.25.27.20.55.005.Which to my eye is a very beautiful watch.Thanks again for your advise.
            Regards,
            Paul.

  • Dear Alexander. I agree and i would have been disappointed had you chosen the ‘grey side’. Omega is doing a fantastic job in ‘re-issuing’ al of its ‘golden oldies’ but as usual, the original remains the favorite!

  • Alexander, how about something unusual like a Urwerk or a Devon watch, what do you think about those watches ?
