The Seamaster is already large on the scene, measuring in at 43.5 mm. But it’s not just the size that’s a standout. The case is made of a brushed black ceramic with a grade 5 titanium case back. The bezel is made of the same grade of titanium, and stands out sharply against the black ceramic. It wouldn’t be a diver without the signature waves, and for the Seamaster, those waves are engraved on the ceramic dial in such a way as to make them stand out—an effect Omega calls “positive relief.” Omega nixed the date window, opting to simplify the face of the watch.
Under the sapphire crystal, you’ll find the Master Chronometer Calibre 8806, which Omega states has been “tested and certified by METAS at the industry’s highest standard of precision, performance and magnetic resistance.” The watch is automatic winding and has a 55-hour power reserve. The Seamaster comes with a black rubber strap and a black ceramic buckle.
Pricing will put this watch somewhere between the USD$4,750 rubber strap and steel Master Chronometer Seamaster Diver 300m and the gold and steel version priced at USD$9,700.
