NEW: Omega Seamaster 300 Bronze Gold

Following on from the last post about a new alloy is another new model variant on a similar theme – the new Seamaster 300 using Bronze Gold, the first watch from Omega using this patent-pending alloy.

The Bronze-Au375 Gold case is 41mm (thickness of 14.4mm) and water resistant to 300m. The alloy is 37.5% gold (hallmarked as 9K) and also contains palladium and silver. The word ‘bronze’ may be in it, but it is corrosion-resistant and won’t oxidise. If you are wondering where it stands in Omega’s pantheon of trademarked alloys colourwise, they say that it is between their Moonshine™ gold and Sedna™ gold.

The sandwich dial with Arabic numerals is a deep dark brown, a colour achieved through the use of a bronze alloy (CuSn8) that is artificially patinated through oxidation, with an opaline finish. The first plate of the dial has the faux vintage Super-Luminova and the second, the recessed hour markers and cut-out numerals. The hour, minute and seconds hands are polished and faceted PVD-d Bronze Gold, all also filled with vintage-look Super-LumiNova.

The uni-directional bezel is filled with polished matching brown ceramic and of course, has Super-LumiNova for the diving scale and dot at 12 o’clock.

Through the open case back is the automatic Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8912, which is resistant to 15,000 Gauss. It beats at 25,200VPH and has a power reserve of 60 hours. The rotor and bridges are rhodium-plated.

Coming on a brown leather strap with a Bronze Gold buckle, it has an RRP of AUD 17,675 and will be available from June 2021.
