The OMEGA Seamaster collection has one of the most varied aesthetic and technical backgrounds of any modern watch. The history of the line itself is rich, dating back to 1948, and its modern interpretations – spread out through the sporty Seamaster 300M, the vintage-inspired Seamaster 300, and the versatile Aqua Terra, among others – has more combined references and variants than perhaps any other watch collection today, from any brand.
We’ve tapped into that expansive line-up to showcase a total of eight Seamaster watches today, five of which are Seamaster 300Ms and three of which are Aqua Terras, and all available now in the HODINKEE Shop. Each represents a different aspect of OMEGA’s collective watchmaking philosophy, but they also retain an adaptability that fills the entire Seamaster line with potential daily wearers. You could consider it the ultimate multi-hyphenate in the watch world: stylish-sporty-attractive-accessible, all in a single line of timepieces.

Although the overall design tenets of the revived 300M were all present in this new watch, the execution was completely different. Instead of using stainless steel, this Seamaster 300M featured a …read more
