This watch is known for its unique design and marine technology. The original style of many years ago marked the return of Omega to the diving watch field. It also later established a long-term relationship between the brand and 007. In 2018, the 25th anniversary of the launch of this series, Omega reconstructed the classics, deliberately launched a refreshing new seahorse diving 300 meters watch series, to pay tribute to the brand classics.

The new series design uses a larger 42mm case, and each model is equipped with an 8800 Co-Axial Master Chronometer movement, taking the series to a higher level of technology, which is better than ever in terms of accuracy, performance and magnetic resistance.
The new version of the bezel is upgraded to a ceramic ring, the face plate is replaced with a wave pattern decoration, and the date window is also moved to 6 o’clock.
In addition to its internal structure, the watch’s exterior design is also infused with new elements, including the classic diving bezel changed to ceramic materials, and the diving scale is made of Ceragold ™ or more bright white and durable white enamel. The surface is made of glossy ceramic and is available in black, blue, or physical vapor deposition (PVD) chrome silver. The most noteworthy element is the original wave texture engraved by the brand with laser engraving.
The changed freshness can also be felt specifically on the helium exhaust valve. Omega transformed it into a cone, with its water resistance of 300 meters in depth, a professional diving watch type
The three-dimensional embossed hour scale is covered with a luminous coating; the newly designed calendar window has been moved to the 6 o’clock position to make viewing the date more convenient; the hollow hands with rhodium-plated, 18K gold or blue steel materials have also been modified. Loyal fans of the 300-meter watch are not difficult to detect. The helium exhaust valve is one of the most important designs in the entire hippocampal 300m watch series. The new watch has a tapered valve and applies patented technology developed by Omega to operate even during a dive.

Seahorse Dive 300m Titanium Limited Edition
Omega introduced the unique Tan metal for the first time when it launched the Seahorse Dive 300m watch 25 years ago. The color of Tanzania metal perfectly perfectly highlights this breakthrough design, including: professional functions and design of helium exhaust valve and telescopic diver buckle. In tribute to the first Hippocampus 300-meter diving watch series released in 1993, Omega presented a special edition watch made in Tanzania in 2018, limited to 2,500. Just like the classic of that time, the watch made of Tan metal still has an extraordinary design, and it is indeed a treasure of great collection value in the new series of 300-meter watches for hippocampal diving. This 42mm limited edition watch also uses the conical helium exhaust valve and the embedded bracelet of the latest hippocampal 300m watch series, and the bottom is also decorated with wavy texture.
In the same series, a limited Tan metal version is also launched. In addition to the material and color differences from the general version, the limited edition also cancels the date window to pay tribute to the 1993 publication.

The gray-blue tanned metal and the frosted case and bracelet made of titanium 2 form a pleasing contrast. The limited edition watch is also embellished with 18K Sedna ™ gold, including: crown, bezel outer ring, helium exhaust valve, bracelet section and hands.
