Seamaster 300 Diver 2018

For those of you who like the new Seamaster 300, which is your favorite dial variation? Grey, Blue or Black?

Voted black. Not a fan of blue-dial watches.

I voted for the grey. However, having been fortunate to try them all on (demos) at a boutique during a recent vacation, the tantalum and Sedna version was my favorite. It was stunning!

As a whole, I think Omega did an amazing job with all of these models and there isn't a stinker in the bunch.

On bracelet, it’s a toss up between black or blue. On rubber strap, the grey.

I cannot honestly remember if I played much with the bezel on the demos. I want to say the feel was smooth and felt very similar to the newer POs? However, I'm not sure if my brain is filling in a false memory.

The good news is I just got word yesterday from my AD that they have arrived in store. So, these should be out and available to see in the metal. I will be happy to report back on the bezel action if others do not beat me to it.

Voted blue but still think the 2531.80 trumps this one.

Went to the Omega Boutique at South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa, CA for some spring bars and got to check out the new Seamasters. They got their shipment in this past Friday and looks like they got each model in the store. Looks amazing in person. Wrist is 6 1/3in for those wondering about size. It fit my wrist better in person than it looks in this picture.

Plastic wrap + store lighting made it hard to take a glare free picture.

The old one scratched easy and faded badly.


Loved them, but they sure don't age well.

I prefer the blue, but if I am to buy one I may go black, just because I got another blue watch in my rotation, but no black.

The wave pattern on the blue looks absolutely amazing, think the blue has it for me.
