The Omega Seamaster 300M Goes Green

We are still at the beginning of 2022, and there is no shortage of green watches. You know what I say? Keep ‘em coming. While blue was the go-to color for something other than a black dial, I’m happy to see green enter the mix from more and more brands. The green watch in question today is Omega’s Seamaster Diver 300M. This popular design has been seen on the wrists of divers, international men of mystery, and watch enthusiasts everywhere since the early 1990s. There’s nothing particularly new about the Seamaster Diver 300M, other than its deep green dial and bezel, which looks stunning on the watch. 

2022’s model is clearly a Seamaster Diver 300m. Iconic design details like the 10 o’clock helium escape valve, the wave-textured dial, skeletonized hour and minute hands, and busy bracelet that almost looks like stripes on a nato strap are all present here, just as they were in ’93. Some things have changed though, and definitely for the better.


The dial is now a Zirconium Oxide ceramic polished to a high shine and laser engraved with a more minimal set of waves. The date is now down at 6 o’clock and printed on a date wheel that matches the dial. The modern Diver 300M still has the same beautiful twisted lugs and faceted bezel design which help the watch remain recognizable at a glance. The Diver 300M comes mounted on a stainless steel bracelet with a diver’s extension clasp or a handsome green rubber strap that looks excellent on the water-ready timepiece.

Inside, you’ll find one of Omega’s accurate and reliable Calibre 8800s. A Co-Axial escapement, Master Chronometer METAS certification, magnetic resistance, a silicon balance spring, and a rhodium finish. This updated feature set results in an accurate, reliable, and handsome movement that’s you can admire through the sapphire case back. 

This is a watch that I’ve gone back and forth on. As an Omega fan, there’s a lot to like, but there are also some design elements that look more at home in the 1990s than they do today. The two major ones are the handset and the bracelet design. There’s just something about them that calls back to that era of design which comes off as a bit too “in-your-face”. Even though the Seamaster 300M and myself have a few minor disagreements, it does look great in its new shade of green. The rich, deep forest green makes me want to run out and try one on, especially with that matching rubber strap. 

Omega’s 2022 novelty Seamaster Diver 300M is “available soon” starting at $5100 on a rubber strap or $5400 on the bracelet. Omega
