Last year, Omega introduced the revamped Seamaster 300M with a 42-mm case. This year, the Bienne-based brand is launching a 43.5 mm version with black ceramic case (as well as dial and bezel insert) and elements made of titanium (caseback, bezel, and crowns). Here’s a brief preview courtesy of our sister blog, Watch-Insider.com.
The transparent caseback uses Omega’s NAIAD system, which means that it is perfectly aligned. Inside is the Omega Caliber 8806 movement, which comes with Master Chronometer certification (and no date). The latest Seamaster Diver 300 Diver with black ceramic and titanium is equipped with a black rubber strap and a buckle in black ceramic. Price of the Ref. 126.96.36.199.01.001 will be CHF 7,500.

Where I can get it? How much?
Looks great. And the best thing – IMHO – is that there is no disturbing date.
Is it a GPS controlled watch for time setup ?
This past October I looked at the new 300m and picked the 2017 model to take home that day. It wasn’t the price it was the size and the exaggerated waves carved in the dial. Now a new 300m in black with some nice features. I’m sure it will look great on NFL line man with 8 inch wrists. I have no idea why you would go bigger.when most of these watches will be worn in conference rooms and at desks. I know you care less about my opinion after all I already bought my 300m 41mm and love it.
finally, they have manufacturer to watch that actually want to buy. I emailed to bury approximately 10 years ago stating my desire for one of his watch has to have both an automatic Swiss movement, and a helium release valve. His reply at the time verged on the condescending about how there was no need for that and they were never going to do it. I might actually pony up the money for this one.
