Omega’s iconic 300-meter diving watch from the hippocampus series returned last year. It has achieved comprehensive innovation by incorporating many innovative materials and watchmaking technologies from the brand. In 2019, the brand once again released a new 300-meter diving watch for the hippocampus series, creatively made of black ceramic and titanium. This combination of materials gives the watch an exquisite appearance and hard quality, which will surely become the favorite choice of many watch lovers.
The watch has a diameter of 43.5 mm and is made of black ceramic, polished and brushed. The bezel is made of grade 5 titanium, and the black ceramic scale ring is decorated with white enamel diving scales. The back of the case also uses grade 5 titanium, which is distinctive.
The watch is fitted with a black frosted ceramic dial and laser engraving presents the popular wave pattern in the collection. Unlike the 300-meter seahorse diving watch launched last year, the new watch’s wave pattern uses relief technology to present a more three-dimensional wave effect. The hands and hour markers are made of PVD titanium and are coated with white Super-LumiNova.
The new hippocampus 300m diving watch features an integrated black rubber strap with a black ceramic buckle. The titanium case back has a corrugated edge design and uses Omega NAIAD lock technology to ensure that the lettering is kept neat and elegant. Through the sapphire glass case back, the movement beauty of the Omega 8806 Zhenzhen Observatory is clearly visible. The entire watch and movement have passed the rigorous approval by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS) to the Astronomical Observatory certification test, which meets the higher standards of watchmaking in terms of accuracy, anti-magnetism and overall performance.
