As its name suggests, the Omega Seamaster watches are specially made for divers with a high water resistance rating. The Omega Seamaster series appears to be an unusual mix of watches at first look. There are diving watches, exquisite sports watches, and vintage-inspired timepieces, not to forget the many complexities.
However, let’s look a little closer. We can see that the current line reflects the original idea of the 1948 Seamaster watch: high-quality water-resistant timepieces designed for an active life.
Omega is recognized for creating a wide range of high-end timepieces, yet the company only has four primary collections: Seamaster, Speedmaster, De Ville, and Constellation. However, several sub-collections of various models are inside these major Omega watch collections.
Here are 4 best Omega Seamaster watches:
Omega Seamaster Plongeur Professional
The Omega Seamaster Plongeur Profesional version was initially produced in 2009. “Professional diver” is how the term is translated from French. This design is a limited edition built for divers with a waterproofness certification of up to 1,200 meters.
The watch’s most notable characteristics include its high water resistance, helium release value, distinctive crown location, and crown protection shifted to the 9 o’clock position rather than the 3 o’clock position. It is available in a 55mm x 48mm titanium casing for wider wrists.
Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Tokyo White Limited Edition
The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Tokyo White is a one-of-a-kind timepiece. A stringent restriction of 2,020 units applies. It has a stainless steel casing with a width of 39.5 mm. The Tokyo White model was created to honor the Tokyo Olympic Games and acted as the event’s Certified Timekeeper.
The panel is made of polished white ceramic. The center second’s hand is red-tipped in homage to Japan’s flag. The bezel is made of white ceramic Liquidmetal and has a diving scale with red liquid ceramic filling for the number 20. White leather is used for the strap. The front and display case back is constructed of scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.
Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra
In 2002, the Aqua Terra edition was produced, with a character similar to the classic Seamasters. This watch is more like a daily watch for beachgoers and scuba divers due to its informal to dressy appearance and water resistance.
Compared to other divers, the water resistance is low at 150 meters, but it’s a beautiful watch that has been spotted on several yachts. Magnetic fields are not easily penetrated by movement. The watch comes in various sizes for big wrists, including 30 mm, 34 mm, 38.5 mm, 41.5 mm, 44 mm, and the gigantic 49.2 mm.
Omega Seamaster 300 Master Co-Axial
The Omega Seamaster 300 Master is a unique limited run with a titanium casing that is 41 mm wide. A glass case back lets you see the mechanical motion’s internal workings, which is one of the watch’s unique characteristics.
The screw-in crown contributes to the water resistance, which is good for 300 meters or 1,000 feet. The bezel is a bidirectional revolving type with an anti-magnetic automated chronometer motor. This watch is in a league of its own.
