Omega Seamaster - The watch of choice for the most sophisticated of society

The Omega Seamaster is perhaps the Swiss watchmaker's most well-known timepiece, debuting in 1948 in celebration of Omega's 100th anniversary. Many may recognize the Seamaster as James Bond's watch of choice, being a fixture of the spy's wardrobe ever since Pierce Brosnan wore the Omega Seamaster 300 in GoldenEye. The model remains the brand's best seller even after over 70 years since it was first released. For those who want sophistication and technical superiority in a single elegant timepiece, look no further than the Omega Seamaster.

The Seamaster by Swiss watchmaker Omega debuted in 1948 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the brand's founding. The Seamaster has its roots in the Marine watch first released in 1932, a watch that was worn by the legendary French diver, Yves Le Prieur. When the American explorer William Beebe began wearing the Marine in 1936, Omega's image as a cutting-edge and technologically advanced watchmaker fully cemented itself. The horologists designing the first Seamaster took inspiration from the Marine to create a watch that was both stylish and functional.

The first Omega Seamaster was designed to be fully waterproof, like the wristwatches made for the British navy during World War II. What distinguished the Seamaster from the earlier diving model was the ground-breaking O-Ring gasket technology, which created an air-tight vacuum improving the watch's water-resistance. Omega was inspired by the technology used during the Second World War. The case of the Omega Seamaster could remain intact at depths up to 60 meters and temperatures between -40 degrees and 50 degrees Celsius.

Despite the first model being released over 70 years ago, the Omega Seamaster is still the Swiss watchmaker's most iconic timepiece in its range. The Omega Seamaster replaced the Rolex as James Bond's watch, worn both Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig in the films. Omega was the official timekeeper for the London Olympic Games in 2012 and released a limited-edition watch to commemorate the games. Omega released the Seamaster 300 for the watches 60th birthday, which played homage to the first Seamaster, looking almost identical to the original.
