Omega Seamaster Professional Diver 300M Co-Axial Luxury Watch Review

http://www.thewatchbox.com/watches/omega Back in the mid-90's, there was no hotter ticket in the Omega lineup than the "James Bond" Seamaster Professional Diver 300M. And that spirit lives in this Omega Seamaster Professional 300M Co-Axial. It's got the Bond factor, but it packs refinements that even Q-branch would envy. Unlike the original (quartz!) Omega Seamaster that debuted Pierce Brosnan in 1995’s GoldenEye, this later model is a highly evolved mechanical specimen of the breed. Its iconic dial sports the signature “blue wave” of the Brosnan models, and the addition of applied indices is an upscale refinement that 007 would have lauded. Likewise, an applied Omega logo and company name at 12 o’clock speak to the parent firm’s march upmarket since the mid-1990s. The skeletonized hands retain the elegance of the initial models and eschew the functional but hulking profile of the alternative “broadsword” hands. The faceted unidirectional rotating dive bezel remains, and the look that re-launched the James Bond franchise survives intact. Naturally, you won't admit a word of this fanboy fantasy to your office colleagues, but rest assured that the guy with the Rolex Submariner in the next suite is too preoccupied practicing his Sean Connery accent to pass judgment on you... All of the standard-issue Omega Bond-watch toys are present in force: helium escape valve; clasp diving suit extension; and COSC chronometer certification. Add a superior 48-hour power reserve, and result is a luxury dive watch that could make Pierce Brosnan second-guess retiring his license to kill.
