Why We Love it

The Seamaster 300 line was Omega's response to the Rolex Submariner when introduced in 1957.

Featuring robust steel cases with a 300 meter depth rating, rotating bezels graduated with dive-timing scales, and a metal bracelet with diver's expansion links, the early Seamaster 300s were not only functional divers that would go on to see use in Her Majesty's Navy, but are arguably one of the handsomest sports watch designs of the past century.

As it evolved, the Omega Seamaster 300 went on to see numerous evolutionary changes, and nearly innumerable variants in a variety of materials and colorways have been produced in the past 60 years. This fact alone has made the Seamaster Professional line (as it came to be known) more desirable than their Rolex counterparts to a large portion of the collector community - simply because they don't all look exactly the same.

One of the latest additions of the Seamaster lineage, along with the Aqua Terra line, is the Planet Ocean. Introduced in 2005, these watches features a chunkier case design with a broad arrow handset, a new bracelet design, a revised design language on the dial, and increased water resistance - no doubt to complete with the Rolex Sea-Dweller.

This particular piece, a reference 2201.50.00, dates to circa 2008 and is from the first few years of the Planet Oceans inception. Featuring a 42mm twisted-lug case, a matte black dial with matching broad arrow handset, a signed black rubber strap with a signed steel pin buckle, and the always controversial helium escape valve at 10:00, these early Planet Oceans are aging quite well and really hit the sweet spot in design, proportions, and wearability.

Although large at the time, the Planet Oceans little sibling has surpassed this Reference in diameter - making this piece surprisingly versatile for daily wear. 

If it was good enough for a certain' Mr. B' on the silver screen back in 2005, then it's good enough for us.

In fact, we love this one.

Overall Condition

The case is in excellent condition overall showing light professional refinishing and light signs of wear from gentle use. Satin black dial with applied indices and Omega logo is in as-new condition with matching ‘broad arrow’ handset. Signed crown.

Brand Story

+
The story of Omega is one that captivates generations of horological devotees. The second-largest watchmaker in the world in terms of annual turnover, the Bienne-based firm has been continuously producing watches since 1848, which it does today under the auspices of the Swatch Group.

Founded in La-Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland as La Generale Watch Co, Omega was well ahead of the horological curve from the beginning, developing the first minute-repeating wristwatch in 1892 as well as the eponymous “Omega” caliber in 1894. This 19-ligne movement was revolutionary in that its parts could be replaced by any watchmaker in the world without modification, while its winding and time-setting via the crown provided an industry standard.

Omega became the timepiece supplier of choice for the British Royal Flying Corps in 1917, while the Americans followed suit in 1918, choosing their watches for the U.S. Army. Awards for precision chronometry became almost commonplace, while 1932 saw them become the first watch brand to time an entire Olympic Games. Their Marine, which debuted the same year, is regarded as the first commercially available diver’s watch.

During the Second World War, Omega supplied well over 100,000 timepieces to British forces, making it the largest watch supplier to the British and her allies. These watches, from the unique 6B/159 to the famed “Dirty Dozen” W.W.W, remain highly collectible today.

1948 saw the launch of the original Seamaster: Built upon the tool watch legacy of the brand’s timepieces from the War, it’s since become a byword for reliability and legibility, both as a dress watch and, more recently, as a serious diver’s tool. The Speedmaster, released in 1957 and originally marketed for the auto-racing market, first rocketed to space on the wrist of American astronaut Wally Schirra in 1962. However, it became a household name when, in 1969, it accompanied Buzz Aldrin on the Moon, and later helped save the space-stranded crew of Apollo 13 in 1970 by timing a critical rocket burn.

Today, Omega’s watches — all of which feature in-house movements — run the gamut from svelte dress pieces to the venerable Speedmaster in all its guises. Providing an unquestionable value proposition, Omega is a brand that deserves to be at the center of every serious watch lover’s collection.
