Omega Dives Into The Nineties

A tantalising return to the past with a ‘materialistic’ new Seamaster Chronograph.

By Terry Christodoulou 22/09/2020

Tantalum came to market with Omega in 1993 – earning a special place in Seamaster history.

And now, like so many things making a ‘90s comeback (though please, let’s forgo bucket hats this summer), the material returns in the brand’s latest diver.

Tantalum, for the uninitiated, is a lustrous blue-grey metal rarer than gold; harder too than steel and highly corrosion resistant – making it the ideal material for such a piece.

Here, the Omega 44mm Seamaster Chronometer 300M Gold Titanium Tantalum is a numbered edition made from titanium, 18-carat Sedna gold (a rose/red gold alloy resistant to discolouration) and the aforementioned tantalum on the base of the bezel and bracelet’s middle links.

The 18-carat gold bezel ring features a laser-ablated diving scale while the polished blue ceramic dial sports laser engraved waves, date window, and subdial rings with further gold touches.

The reverse sees an engraved Omega seahorse and lacquered white on the sapphire crystal and a chance to gaze upon the Omega co-axial master chronometer calibre 9900.

The timepiece is water-resistant to 300-metres and strapped via Omega’s patented extendable bracelet.
