The family of dive watches by Omega is wide, as it includes the both robust and elegant Omega Planet Ocean 600m replica watch, the superlative Ploprof 1200m replica watch or the vintage-inspired 300 Master Chronometer replica watch . Those 3 are the high-end propositions but the range is also composed of a more affordable and professionally oriented tool-watch, the Seamaster Diver 300m replica watch. This legend that exists for ages is now the field for a new special edition celebrating the partnership between Omega, the America’s Cup and the ETNZ.
This new Omega Seamaster Diver 300m Replica special edition watch can be called a Yachting / Regatta watch because of its specific chronograph function. Let us explain what such a watch is. In the world of yachting races, navigators have to aligned on the starting line – like in every race. However, a boat is not static and the starting line has to be crossed at a certain moment. To help navigators, the organization teams of such races are launching a 5-minute countdown before the start to help the boats to align on the starting line. Aware of such a countdown, some brands decided to create Regatta watches.
Omega choose the simple solution for this new special edition of the Seamaster Diver 300m replica watch– a solution which is however not void of interest and known to be easier to use. This is not a first for the brand, as they already uses the same base watch for the Louis Vuitton Cup Edition. As said, the solution to have the 5-minute countdown is here simple. Omega goes for an inverted minute scale that works as a countdown.
