Hands-on – Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Ceramic and Titanium

Post by Racer-X » February 23rd 2019, 11:34am

"The Seamaster Diver 300M is one of the most beloved watches of Omega fans, and one of the best-sellers of the company. Part of this success is due to the link with James Bond, to the point that despite the long “Omega Seamaster 300M Professional” name, the watch is very often simply referred to as “the James Bond watch”. After a tasteful facelift done last year on the time-and-date version, we have this year an additional model dressed in black ceramic and titanium - see here - that has more than just different materials to offer. Here's our early hands-on with the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Ceramic and Titanium (ref. 210.92.44.20.01.001)."

A ceramic bezel on a titanium case - cool. A titanium bezel on a ceramic case - bleh.

Bleh.

Still, the SMP is a good watch in all respects. Even in not particularly attractive colourways.
I always hope for the best. Experience, unfortunately, has taught me to expect the worst.

I don't dislike the styling as much as Mr. MK, but I have such an affinity for the '90s Seamaster models (particularly since some were available in 36mm) that I remain quite happy with the one I own, which is still in pristine shape. That 8806, tho ... superb (yeah, METAS vs. COSC, the new-age argument; but it works, and it's nifty, and it was one of the highlights of last year's WatchTime show, at least for me; go to YouTube and check out the standards they adhere to).
