Omega raises pricing for Seamaster

Post by koimaster » December 3rd 2021, 9:52am

Of course they have and the people will pay the price asked because they "need" the watch.


This week, many members of the watch community noted that, once again, Omega has incrementally raised the pricing on one of their bestselling models, the Omega Seamaster 300M. While some wondered if this was a move to capitalise on the lack of availability of competing divers like the Rolex Submariner, the truth is likely far more boring. Every few years, brands like Omega, and even Rolex, will incrementally increase the retail price of their watches to account for inflation. Sure, it is not necessarily a devastating move for buyers worldwide, but it does make a bit of a difference over time. Once, if you asked me which watch you should consider purchasing under $5,000 USD I would have definitely mentioned the Omega Seamaster 300M on a rubber strap. But now, after an increase of $200 USD, the watch has surpassed $5,000 USD – moving up from $4,900 USD to $5,100 USD.

This is nothing compared to the idiotic frenzy about Rolex that started last year. The Seamaster is every bit the watch the Submariner is - and right now it's just around half the price, give or take a few hundred bucks. I'd go with the Seamaster 10 times out of 10.

Nothing new, the Swatch Group jacks up the prices every year.
