The Omega Automatic Seamaster 300 was “specially designed for professional and amateur divers”. Although originally guaranteed waterproof to a depth of 200 meters, the model was named “Seamaster 300” instead of “Speedmaster 200” because its performance was far beyond the capacities of the testing devices of the time. This outstanding result was essentially due to the high-resistance of the crystal and the “Naiad” crown. This very 14755-2 has a three-body case with down-turned massive lugs with strong proportions, a revolving steel and black untouched bezel and the classic screw-down back engraved with the Seamaster logo. The mat black dial is immaculate with large luminous painted dagger indexes, triangular markers that gained a supercool orange color that somehow recalls the strap while the inner painted Arabic numerals for the quarters are white clean. Complete the watch steel arrow hands with luminous material.
