In a truly pioneering moment, this year’s new Seamaster 300 collection will also include a 41 mm model crafted from Omega’s exclusive Bronze Gold. The watch represents the very first Omega to be created in this patent-pending alloy.
Bronze has a long and traditional history with ocean exploration, having been used in nautical applications such as boat propellers and diving helmets. There is also a historical reference to copper being blended with gold or silver to create an alloy once known as Corinthian Bronze. While details of its exact composition are limited, various ancient Greek texts reinforce the reputation of Corinthian Bronze as a highly prized metal for the creation of statues, vases, vessels and more. Echoing its own Greek inspired name, Omega has revived this classical art today in its own unique way !
Bronze Gold was specifically developed to produce a pleasing aesthetic and hue, while also offering a bronze alloy that could be worn with direct contact on the skin, thanks to its distinctive composition.
Used for the entire case and buckle, the oneof- a-kind alloy is enriched with noble elements such as 37.5% gold, hallmarked as 9K, as well as palladium and silver, to create a unique colour which sits exactly between the brand’s 18K MoonshineTM gold and 18K SednaTM gold.
As well as featuring a soft pink hue, during wear it offers incomparable corrosion resistance without verdigris-oxidation, and will therefor age slowly and retain its natural and beautiful patina over a longer period of time. For fans of bronze watches and innovative materials, this is great news !
To complement the impressive Bronze Gold, the bezel ring of this timepiece has been created in brown ceramic with a diving scale in vintage Super-LumiNova. Thanks to the fact that the dial is an internal component, Omega took the opportunity to use a common bronze alloy (CuSn8) in order to offer a unique dark brown colour with a patina that was created after a special aging process had taken place. The contrast with the exclusive Bronze Gold is therefore particularly captivating !
The model comes with a full 5-year warranty and is powered by the Omega Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8912.
