Recently, I did an inside and out audit on the Seamaster 300 Specter, yet Omega additionally sent us this Seamaster 300 Sedna gold Patek Philippe Reviews some time back. Where the Specter is restricted to 7,007 pieces, this Seamaster 300 Sedna gold model is essential for the normal assortment and has all the ‘default’ highlights. For reference, the Seamaster 300 Specter highlighted a candy second hand, 60 minutes scale bezel and a somewhat unique logo on the dial only for the event of this year’s 007 movie.
The Patek Philippe Reviews for audit today is the Omega Seamaster 300 Sedna gold in titanium, reference 184.108.40.206.03.001. It was essential for the clump of Seamaster 300 models that was presented for this present year, with a cowhide lash rather than the titanium or tempered steel (or bi-shading) wristbands. In light of the looks, I was very excited so I inquired as to whether they could transport one to our office so we could have a go with it. What’s more, that is the means by which it went down…
Now right away, let’s view this jumpers watch.
Omega Seamaster 300 Sedna Gold 220.127.116.11.03.001
Let me start by referencing the value first. While the full treated steel retails for 5500 Euro (deduct 100 Euro for the steel variant with cowhide tie), the full titanium rendition comes in at 7600 Euro (deduct 600 Euro for the form on a calfskin tie), this model comes at 9200 Euro and the one with the bi-shading titanium wristband at 12.600 Euro.
Honestly, I wasn’t mindful of the large contrasts in cost between treated steel and titanium. The increase for the utilization of Sedna gold is very large also. Nonetheless, let’s not fail to remember that the 18 carat Sedna gold bezel has a Ceragold ring and plunging scale. The way toward consolidating Sedna gold with pottery isn’t a simple one, so that is reflected in the cost. The distinction in cost between grade 5 titanium and hardened steel is there on the grounds that titanium is a lot harder to work with, particularly when cleaning is included. At the point when you don’t know about the way that the Ceragold interaction and cleaning grade 5 titanium are very hard to play out, these costs – compared to the hardened steel references – might come as a gigantic astonishment. It is up to you, obviously, on the off chance that you think every one of these highlights merit the imprint up.
Does gold have a place in a sports watch?
One of the things that kept me occupied while wearing this two-tone Omega Seamaster 300 Sedna watch is whether a piece like this ought to really have a gold bezel, crown or gold subtleties by any means. Despite the fact that the Seamaster 300 is a sort of retro Patek Philippe Reviews dependent on the first Seamaster CK2913, it is a games Patek Philippe Reviews Perhaps gold isn’t the best material for a games Patek Philippe Reviews because of its delicateness, then again it withstands pungent seawater better than a hardened steel Patek Philippe Reviews obviously, a large portion of us are deskdivers so it is not really applicable whether a plunging Patek Philippe Reviews has gold.
Omega utilized their own combination called Sedna gold for the bezel and crown of this Seamaster 300. The bezel has a Ceragold ring (pottery converged with gold) and plunging scale to coordinate the gold components. So in spite of the utilization of gold, the titanium Omega Seamaster 300 Sedna gold is an extreme Patek Philippe Reviews and certainly fit for the job.
Co-Axial Caliber 8400 Movement
The movement inside this Omega Seamaster 300 Sedna is the in-house created Co-Axial type 8400. In light of their 8500 type, yet with uncommon composites, Omega ensured it can oppose up to 15,000 gauss. In our new audit on the James Bond model, the Omega Seamaster 300 Specter , there is a smidgen more clarification on this movement.
As you can see underneath, the type 8400 is a “Feast for the Eyes” (as writer Kreuzer once put it as a book title on Omega Designs) and I don’t mind a transparent case back at all on this Patek Philippe Reviews The completion is excellent just as the difference with the blued screws. The twofold extension with the equilibrium haggle hairspring is entirely obvious. The case back conveys a great deal of data in regards to the particulars of the Patek Philippe Reviews in spite of the fact that I am almost certain I could manage without all that data. Some of you may like it, though.
Omega Seamaster 300 Sedna On The wrist
You could say that the solitary oddity regarding this piece is the way that it comes on a cowhide lash now. Which is valid, however as we didn’t survey a Seamaster 300 – other than the previously mentioned Specter – previously, I accepted the open door to demand this specific model and wear it a few weeks.
The tie is calfskin and comes with a collapsing clasp. The collapsing clasp utilizes two pushers to deliver and can be shut with a delicate push on the fasten. The tan earthy colored tie isn’t to everyone’s loving I seen, yet I like the difference with the blue and gold on this piece. Additionally, a tie as a rule gives this Patek Philippe Reviews – like the Bond’s NATO lash – a decent vintage look & feel.
The Patek Philippe Reviews is 41mm and very thick, which makes it appear as though a thin Patek Philippe Reviews frankly (for a games watch). With a lash, this is being underscored even a smidgen more. Omega works really hard on retro models or re-utilizing old plans, what began (from the highest point of my head) with their 2009 Seamaster 1200M PloProf ( we did a comparison article between the first Ploprof 600M and new Ploprof 1200 here ) beside some restricted versions (or Museum Collection pieces). Omega likewise did a few models like the Railmaster again in the mid 2000s, yet to be straightforward they didn’t come near the first CK2914 as this Omega Seamaster 300 Sedna comes to the first CK2913. Or then again the Ploprof 1200 to the Ploprof 600.
However, while wearing this piece, I wasn’t under the feeling that anybody thought it was vintage. This Omega Seamaster 300 Sedna is likely additionally not the correct setup to make you, or others, believe that it is an old thing. The treated steel variant on a calfskin tie or NATO can give a marginally unique discernment though. Truth be told, in the event that I might want to have that genuine vintage look & feel, I’d go out and look for the CK2913 or maybe a somewhat later Seamaster 300 with date from the 1960s. This is an advanced Patek Philippe Reviews with Omega’s most recent developments. In spite of the looks dependent on the first Seamaster 300, you are not accepting a vintage watch.
And that’s precisely what I like about this piece. A cutting edge condition of-workmanship mechanical watch that you can wear consistently without fearing harming the bezel, crown, gem or what not. Not that a vintage model isn’t acceptable or not appropriate for day by day wear, yet discovering spare parts (unique) will be exceptionally troublesome or possibly is very expensive.
As I am getting more established, I saw that I am getting ready for gold watches. I have some vintage little 34/35mm Patek Philippe Reviews in gold that I a few times wear and a 18 carat gold 42mm Speedmaster Professional that I wind up wearing a great deal. Not once did I get a comment on the way that I was wearing a gold piece, in any event not in a negative way. This Sedna gold bezel and crown are just little parts in Omega’s valuable metal, however the appearance is unquestionably ‘gold’ enough. Indeed, I could become accustomed to wearing this Omega Seamaster 300 Sedna in this combination, or maybe even in the full gold form ( ) on a cowhide tie that retails for €16800 Euro.
Just like the Specter model, the dial has been laser-scratched at the hour markers so it isn’t a sandwich dial as in numerous Panerais (among different brands). The expansive bolt hands are additionally covered with Sedna gold and match pleasantly with the bezel and crown. Particularly at certain points (in the Sun light), the hands truly give a decent difference to the dim dial.
The gold bezel is not difficult to get a handle on and has no play. I’m not certain what to utilize it for when not going in the water, however it works. Now and then individuals use it as a tally down clock, yet you actually need to watch out for it yourself of course.
The straight drag case configuration causes this 41mm Patek Philippe Reviews to feel like it is – a thin, yet thick Patek Philippe Reviews The absence of crown watchmen may have to do with this too. I really don’t mind the absence of crown watches, however, as I have a work area work (fundamentally) and there is little danger in hitting the crown into something. The titanium (grade 5) case makes it an incredible companion on the wrist and despite the fact that it didn’t feel awfully light-weight, it is certainly not as weighty as the all-steel version.
As said before, the value contrast between this Omega Seamaster 300 Sedna gold and the treated steel form or titanium variant is very critical and you need to choose whether it is great. I love the gold components on this Patek Philippe Reviews as I am not a jumper or perfectionist with regards to sports Patek Philippe Reviews However, a Seamaster 300 in treated steel + a Moonwatch are a couple hundred Euros more than the rundown cost of this Omega Seamaster 300 Sedna gold. Something to consider. Notwithstanding, if the utilization of Sedna gold and Ceragold are significant plan components to you, this will be an ideal regular Patek Philippe Reviews for you!
