Omega introduces the Seamaster Diver 300M Nekton Edition: a dive watch on a mission to save the seas.

In line with its pledge to make time for the planet, Omega is a proud partner of Nekton, a not-for-profit research foundation committed to protecting our oceans. The vital work is already underway. ‘First Descent’, a series of missions to explore and conserve the Indian Ocean, which began in 2019, will resume next year – with Omega in a strong supporting role. “Our friends at Nekton are protecting the ocean with the global goal of 30% protection by 2030, says Raynald Aeschlimann, Omega’s President and CEO. As a pioneering brand with a long history of pushing at the boundaries of what is possible, we have the utmost respect for this bold, confident vision and we’re thrilled to help make the goal a reality.”

Omega’s Diver 300M is the most appropriate watch to represent the partnership. The famous Seamaster has played a key role in Omega’s ocean story. A legacy acknowledged by the team at Nekton, who dubbed their research submersible Seamaster 2, in tribute to the boat skippered by the late Sir. Peter Blake. The legendary round-the-world yachtsman was a passionate advocate of ocean conservation and a close friend of Omega.

The Nekton Edition features a laser ablated black ceramic dial, matt finished with polished waves in positive relief, and unidirectional rotating bezel in grade 5 titanium with laser ablated diving scale in positive relief. As a tribute to the hard-working foundation, the oriented caseback features an embossed Nekton submarine medallion and is engraved with “NAIADLOCK”, “DIVER 300M” and the watch’s water resistance. Driving the Nekton Edition is the Master Chronometer Calibre 8806 with special luxury finish, Geneva waves in arabesque and rhodium-plated rotor and bridges. Certified by METAS it can resist magnetic fields of 15,000 gauss.
