Famous diving watch embraces the dark side, with a new model in the blackest black
La Cote des Montres - July 13th, 2021

In 2021, Omega’s famous diving watch embraces the dark side, with a new model in the blackest black. On this exciting new addition to the Diver 300M collection first released in 1993, Omega has taken advantage of ceramic’s versatility, to create a watch in contrasting shades from a single colour. As always, Omega has stayed true to the 300M’s original design and ensures the watch meets all required dive watch functions. As well as being easy on the eye, the Seamaster Diver 300M Black Black is easy to read - even in the dark.


Overall design


To create a true sense of deepness, and to signify the darkest corners of the ocean, the 43.5 mm polished-brushed case in black ceramic [ZrO2] is fixed to the wrist by an integrated black rubber strap with a buckle in the same material as the case. To ensure every part of the watch blends in beautifully, Omrga’s watchmakers also created black ceramic versions of the crown and helium escape valve.


Light from the darkness


Although the new Black Black is the colour of night, its dial is easy-to-read at all hours. To ensure visibility without spoiling the Diver’s overall aesthetic, Omega has introduced anthracite Super-LumiNova to the diving scale, the black PVD indexes and skeleton hands, and dot at 12H. Although these essential markers all glow in different colours in the dark, the anthracite turns them dark-grey in daylight.


A laser-ablated name


Pour la première fois, Omega a gravé au laser presque tous les détails du cadran en céramique noire [ZrO2]. Des emblématiques vagues à la minuterie, en passant par les mentions et même le symbole Omega, les détails ont été façonnés en relief positif à partir d’une seule pièce. Cette architecture unique offre un superbe effet de contraste tout en donnant à la montre un look unique, uniforme et sculptural. On retrouve ce même design en relief positif sur l’échelle de plongée de la lunette unidirectionnelle.

The caseback


Adding some light to the darkness is a window with a clear view of the movement. The caseback, which is of course in polished- brushed black ceramic, has a sapphire crystal glass. Keeping everything oriented is Omega’s patented “NAIAD LOCK” with wave-edged design, which has been metallised with “NAIAD LOCK”, “DIVER 300M” and “300 m / 1000 ft”.


The movement


Through the caseback glass, proud wearers of the watch can view the Omega Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8806, certified at the industry’s highest standards of precision, performance and magnetic resistance by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS). Omega’s worldwide 5-year warranty is further proof of the brand’s confidence in the stunning new Seamaster Diver 300M Black Black.
