Omega has released a special edition Seamaster Diver 300M, dedicated to the brand's collaboration with the British organization Nekton. The Seamaster Diver 300M Nekton Edition pays tribute to Sir Peter Blake, the captain of the Seamaster, and supports the mission of saving the seas and oceans.

The talented yachtsman Peter Blake, awarded a British knighthood, retired from sports after winning the 1995 America's Cup and devoted himself to exploring and protecting the oceans. Sir Peter Blake worked in collaboration with the British non-profit charity Nekton. A passionate advocate for protecting the oceans, Blake was a close friend of Omega replica, which continues to sponsor the Nekton Research Foundation.

In 2019, Nekton, together with the University of Oxford, launched a series of "First Descent" missions in the Indian Ocean. To conduct its research, Nekton uses a deep-sea submersible, which the team named Seamaster 2 after Peter Blake's Seamaster. In 2001, Sir Peter Blake was shot and killed by pirates while on an expedition through an insecure section of the Amazon.

To support Nekton's research work, Omega has released a special edition of the Seamaster Diver 300M Nekton Edition. The watch replicas uk features design elements typical of the Seamaster Diver 300M line, as well as features on the front and back of the case.

The unidirectional bezel of the Seamaster Diver 300M Nekton Edition is made from grade 5 titanium, unlike other models in the line. The rough sandy surface is obtained through a laser ablation process. The diving scale is made in the form of relief.

The dial is made of black ZrO2 ceramic and has a smooth matte surface. The laser engraved wave pattern is clearly defined and polished.

Other dial elements are inspired by the Seamaster Diver 300M line. For example, large indexes and skeletonized hands coated with Super-LumiNova. Accented with a red seconds hand and red Seamaster lettering, the watch's monochrome design is highlighted.

The Seamaster Diver 300M Nekton Edition replica watch uk has a stainless steel case with a diameter of 42 mm and a height of 13.5 mm. A helium release valve is located at 10 o'clock.

The case back of the Seamaster Diver 300M Nekton Edition speaks volumes about the exclusivity of the new watch model. The cover is engraved with the Nekton Seamaster 2 submersible. The matte wavy design around the boat represents the sand on the seabed. The watch is equipped with a NAIAD LOCK system and is water resistant up to 300 m.

The Seamaster Diver 300M Nekton Edition is powered by a METAS-certified Master Chronometer 8806 movement. The automatic caliber 8806 with a co-axial escapement and a power reserve of up to 55 hours is resistant to magnetic fields of up to 15,000 Gauss. The precision of the mechanism is ensured by a silicon balance spring. Although the caliber is hidden behind a case back, the rhodium-plated rotor and bridges are decorated with the traditional Geneva waves pattern.
