The Seamaster Diver 300M is one of OMEGA’s most iconic timepieces. Since its launch in 1993, it has been admired for its striking design and innovative technology, as a dedicated companion on the wrists of divers, athletes, and, most notably, James Bond. In an event fit for the world’s most famous British spy, OMEGA held an exclusive party and exhibition to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the iconic timepiece this year.
The event was attended by a host of celebrity guests – including Pita Limjaroenrat, Chai Preeyanuch Bulakul, Karatphet Issara, Chulalux Piyasombatkul, Ingfah Damrongchaitham, Yumi Kiangsiri, Jarujit and Pimlert Bayoke, and Cindy Sirinya-Bishop – who came to admire and explore the history of the Seamaster Diver 300M in a subaquatic themed space.
Guests were invited on a true deep sea exploration with a showcase of rare vintage pieces, such as the Seamaster Titanium 150th Anniversary, the Seamaster Professional Diver 300M Jacques Mayol and the Seamaster 300M America’s Cup. Avid watch lovers were also able to explore materials and movements at a specially set up Watch Test Bar and submerge themselves in the signature wave patterns in the Infinity Room.
For the first time in Thailand, the latest Seamaster Diver 300M models were also introduced at the event. The 2018 collection features 14 unique models, with 6 in stainless steel and 8 in a mix of stainless steel and 18K gold. The details of the outward design have been delicately reimagined as the models are now larger at 42mm, and have each been given a Master Chronometer Calibre 8800. The iconic diving bezel is now made from ceramic and the diving scale is available in Ceragold or white enamel. The much-loved wave pattern makes a return as a laser engraving on the dial, in a beautiful homage to the original designs.
