Showing at WatchTime New York 2019: Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Chronograph Sedna Gold


America’s largest luxury watch extravaganza, WatchTime New York, is returning for its fifth consecutive year at Midtown Manhattan’s Gotham Hall on October 25 – 26, 2019. This year’s event is shaping up to be the biggest yet, with 37 participating watch brands displaying their latest and greatest timepieces. Among these brands is Omega, which will showcase its entire 2019 lineup of releases, including the brand-new Seamaster Diver 300M Chronograph in Sedna Gold.

Since its introduction in 1993, the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M has been one of the most popular watches among divers and collectors worldwide. Last year, the brand worked to bring on the next chapter in this series’ history with a significant revitalization of its standard designs, and this year Omega continued the effort with a number of new Seamaster Chronographs being added to the collection, including today’s highlight watch.

The new chronograph uses a completely Sedna gold case, and features a laser-ablated black ceramic bezel contrasted with a single white dot of Super-LumiNova at 12 o’clock. Like the other models in this new collection, this watch has a 44-mm diameter and uses a bicompax dial configuration; however, one place where the new chronograph stands out is the golden rings around the two sub-dials to match the metal of the case. Another new feature of the watch is the presence of ceramic pushers. This specific model uses the Omega Co-Axial Master Chronometer Caliber 9901, which is differentiated only from the more standard Caliber 9900 due to the specialized finish of the rotor and balance bridge in 18k Sedna gold.

Sedna gold, an alloy developed entirely in-house by the Swatch Group, blends gold, copper and palladium for, Omega says, an uncommonly long-lasting reddish hue. The alloy requires a minimum gold content of 75 percent, along with a precise portion of copper, to create the vibrant red color, while the palladium strengthens the material’s luster and makes it longer-lasting. “Sedna” is the name of a Trans-Neptunian object — i.e, a body in space that orbits our sun at a greater average distance than the planet Neptune — whose surface has been described as one of the reddest in the Solar System.

The Seamaster Diver 300M Chronograph in Sedna Gold is priced at $26,000. You can see the new Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Chronograph in Sedna Gold at WatchTime New York 2019 on October 25 – 26 — get your tickets now!

    Following on from other posts below regarding the raised markers on the Bezel and innovation.
    Rolex released the Yachtmaster with raised markers in 1992 with that “look”
    In so far as innovation is concerned Rolex has been at the forefront of innovation for over 100 years.
    Rolex is all about incremental improvement and not step change.
    Rolex was the first to introduce a Chronometer grade movement into a wrist watch. It introduced the concept of the Waterproof Oyster Case and double and triple lock crowns as well sending their watches to the depths of the Mariana Trench and to the heights of Everest to prove how rugged they are.
    100 years later Rolex is still the largest producer of luxury watches in Switzerland by $ value taking 22% of sales whilst Omega which is an older company is running at 9%.
    There is a very good reason for this.
    How can a company who used ETA based movements in the 70’s,80’s,90’s,00’s ever hope to compete with a brand that stayed true to its values?
    With the exception of the Speedmaster, let me say that copying is not innovation.

    I’m not partial to either side here, but I must say it gave me a bit of a Yachtmaster lookalike feeling when I looked at the pictures. If I were Omega, I would have put a bit more distance, maybe by changing a few design elements, like the bands on the strap.

    Nearly perfect. Just give us legible hands. The Skelton hands are invisible.

    Being a Rolex collector and for that matter having a Yachtmaster in my collection can anyone not see that the Bezel on the Sedna Gold Seamaster resembles the raised numbers of the Yachtmaster and in particular the rose gold version of the Yachtmaster ?
    It is dissapointing to see ….

      Before Rolex fanboys start criticising perhaps some research would stop you looking stupid. The Seamaster 300M Diver ETNZ Limited Edition Ref.212.92.44.50.99.001 released in 2015 had a matt black ceramic bezel with a raised polished diving scale. The Rolex Yachtmaster in red gold was also released in 2015 with an almost identical black ceramic bezel with raised polished markers. So neither Rolex nor Omega got there first with this style of bezel. Shocking as it might be for some Rolex is not always first with innovation. In fact these days Rolex rarely innovates which is very sad.

    A logical progression from the standard Seamaster 300m Diver of which I’m a proud owner, it’s good to see Omega on an upward trend. This timepiece deserves to be a best seller.
