The Seamaster Diver 300M Nekton Edition watch celebrates OMEGA’s partnership with Nekton, a not-for-profit research foundation committed to protecting our oceans.
One of its projects, ‘First Descent’, a series of missions to explore and conserve the Indian Ocean, which began in 2019, will resume next year – with OMEGA in a strong supporting role.
OMEGA’s Diver 300M is the most appropriate watch to represent the partnership. The famous Seamaster has played a key role in OMEGA’s ocean story. A legacy acknowledged by the team at Nekton, who dubbed their research submersible Seamaster 2, in tribute to the boat skippered by the late Sir. Peter Blake. The legendary round-the world yachtsman was a passionate advocate of ocean conservation and a close friend of OMEGA.
The Nekton Edition features a laser ablated black ceramic [ZrO2] dial, matt finished with polished waves in positive relief, and unidirectional rotating bezel in grade 5 titanium with laser ablated diving scale in positive relief.
The oriented caseback of this special edition diving watch features an embossed Nekton submarine medallion and is engraved with NAIADLOCK, DIVER 300M and the watch’s water resistance.
Powering this timepiece is the Master Chronometer Calibre 8806 self-winding movement with special luxury finish, Geneva waves in arabesque and rhodium-plated rotor and bridges. Certified by METAS it can resist magnetic fields of 15,000 gauss.
Two Nekton Edition models are available. First one features an integrated black rubber strap with polished brushed buckle to complement the black ceramic dial. Second model comes with a stainless steel bracelet.
This timepiece will be available in stores from October 2020. Like all OMEGA watches, the Seamaster Diver 300M Nekton Edition watch will be delivered with a 5-year warranty that covers the repair of any material or manufacturing defects.
