The Complete History of the Omega Seamaster
The Seamaster Omega watches for men, often recognized as the "James Bond watch," has a storied history dating back to its debut in 1948, celebrating Omega's 100th anniversary. It quickly became the brand's best-seller and remains the oldest model in Omega's current collection.
Omega Seamaster's Original Design
Omega's dive watch legacy began in 1932 with the Marine watch, worn by the diving pioneer Yves Le Prieur and later by Charles William Beebe during his oceanic expeditions. By 1948, Omega was renowned for its robust diver's watches, and the Seamaster was introduced. Unlike its predecessors, the Seamaster featured an O-ring gasket, enhancing its water-resistance. This innovation, inspired by submarine technology from World War II, not only made the watch resilient to extreme conditions but also established it as an enduring favorite among Omega watches for men.
The Seamaster 300
In 1957, during the rise of scuba diving as a popular sport, Omega launched a trio of "Master" watches, including the Seamaster 300 designed for underwater use. Although it could dive to depths of only 200 meters, it gained fame for its association with Jacques Cousteau's Conshelf II experiments in the Red Sea, where it was worn by oceanographers.
James Bond's Watch
The Seamaster's popularity soared when it was chosen as James Bond's watch in the mid-1990s. Pierce Brosnan wore the Omega Seamaster 300 in "GoldenEye" (1995) and subsequent Bond films. Daniel Craig continued the tradition, sporting various Seamaster models in his Bond films. In celebration of its 20-year partnership with the Bond franchise, Omega released the special edition Seamaster 300 Specter.
The 2012 London Olympics
In 2012, coinciding with the London Olympics, Omega released a special edition Seamaster 1948 Co-Axial London 2012, paying tribute to the watch's debut year. This limited edition featured a classic Seamaster dial and a yellow gold case back stamped with the London Olympics 2012 logo.
Omega Seamaster Watches 300 60th Anniversary Limited Edition
At Basel in 2017, Omega watches introduced the 60th Anniversary Limited Edition Omega Seamaster watches, inspired by the original Seamaster released in 1957. It closely resembled the original with minor material updates and advancements in its internal mechanism.
