[Video] The Beauty And The Beast — Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Chrono in Sedna Gold
Omega shipped us this gold Seamaster Diver 300M Chronograph after my colleague Jorg decided he wanted to write a hands-on article on this beast.
Upon receiving it, he quickly called me and said, “You need to see and try this”. Not entirely sure what my feelings would be on a 44mm diver chronograph in gold, I went to our office and for the first time put the Seamaster Diver 300M Chronograph on my wrist. The end of the story is, that I didn’t give it back to him for at least a week. What an incredible piece! I find it quite interesting to think that this watch has remained under the radar for me all that time. It isn’t exactly a new watch, as Omega introduced its chronograph models of the Seamaster Diver 300M in 2019 already. I guess I was too busy focusing on that other gold piece from 2019, the Speedmaster Professional in Moonshine gold. Little did I realize what I was missing out on.
Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Chronograph Sedna Gold
Compared to the Speedmaster Professional Moonshine, the Seamaster Diver 300M Chronograph in Sedna gold is a little bit lighter. It weighs 189 grams (versus the 220 grams of the Speedmaster in gold), but keep in mind that the Speedmaster comes with a full 18K gold bracelet. The 44mm case diameter makes this a rather heavy and chunky watch, attached to a soft rubber strap with a matching gold pin buckle. In the video, I explain exactly how this combination feels on the wrist, and whether it’s comfortable or not.
There’s also a little bit of background information on the Diver 300M Chronograph series in this video, but for a full overview, I suggest you download a digital copy of our Seamaster 300M magazine that we published in 2018. You can find it here.
