Do they make solid non exhibition caseback for a new Seamaster 300 wave dial divers?

Iíve been thinking about getting a blue 300m seamaster diver for years (the old 41mm ceramic bezel) but havenít pulled the trigger. The new 42mm blue wave dials look even better. However they have the see thru exhibition case back, which I donít like. I was just hoping Omega has a solid steel caseback, though I doubt they would. Thanks

Just out of curiosity and no disrespect, why is this of concern? The case back isn't visible when wearing the watch.

I have an LM Omega which i had second thoughts about buying because I didn't want visible Olympic logos. The watches only Olympic logo are on the crystal case back which is why I ended up buying it.

They get “sweatier” and stick to the skin a little more. That’s been my personal experience.

I had the older ceramic bezel 300m, and now have the new 42mm version and do not notice it being any stickier. I've been wearing it every day for about a month, and I am really particular when it comes to that sort of thing. Maybe I will change my tune in the Summer.

Robert, I see that you're new to TRF, and thought I should point out that rules of the forum prohibit solicitation such as this except in the Sales Corner (which you may be prevented from doing until a certain level of other activity as a member).

Exhibition case backs can be extremely uncomfortable on some wrists, especially flat ones without much hair where ventilation and lack of moisture evaporation becomes an issue. I had to sell my 2018 SMP for this exact reason - if there was a solid caseback I would pick up another one in a heartbeat.
