Omega Seamaster Professional Diver 300M Quartz Luxury Watch Review

Watchuwant is now WatchBox! Subscribe for the best luxury watch content. Ah yes, the dial that haunted my dreams in the late 1990s. Before I was the voice that welcomes visitors to the WatchBox YouTube channel, I was a high school kid staring at *THIS* dial through windows of mall boutiques. Half a lifetime (for me) later, I *STILL* adore this Omega Seamaster Professional Diver 300M Quartz luxury dive watch. Its iridescent dial still sings a siren tune whose blue notes resonate with my heart. Take one look at this style standout in high-resolution images on our website, and I'm certain that you'll feel as I do. But wait, this is a QUARTZ watch, so how can be so beguiling to a dyed-in-the-wool enthusiast of Swiss horology? Look again; the SMP 300M Quartz more than recovers in soulful style any enthusiast value it forfeits with a quartz movement. The Omega Seamaster Professonal 300M Quartz is defined by three features: the electrifying glow of its dial, the contrast of the key lime luminescent elements, and the mirror-like polish of the bezel. Together, these aesthetic virtues create a standout among the Omega SMP models from this era. Beyond the visible-from-space dial treatment, all cardinal virtues of the celebrated Omega "James Bond" Seamasters report for duty on the Omega Seamaster Professional Diver 300M Quartz. Helium release valve? Check. Supple bracelet and best-in-class deployant clasp? Check and check. Deployant diver's extension (also works over winter coats)? Verily. Want more? You got it: James Bond himself wore a Seamaster 300M quartz. In his first - and arguably finest - appearance as Agent 007, Pierce Brosnan wore the quartz 300M in 1995's blockbuster "Goldeneye." The Omega Seamaster Professional Diver 300M chronometer commonly associated with Brosnan's character didn't launch until Basel 1997. And quartz movements boast virtues of their own. This Seamaster features a robust ETA 1538 ticker whose minimal maintenance requirements (never again a $600 service), years of power reserve, chronometer-busting precision, and extreme resistance to rough treatment allow it to endure where mechanical movements drop dead. With the Omega Seamaster Professional Diver 300M Quartz, your watch will live to Die Another Day. Bond would approve.
