The Return Of Tantalum Metal – Omega Released The Hippocampus 300m Diving Watch Titanium Tantalum Limited Edition Watch

In 2018, Omega’s iconic 300-meter diving watch from the hippocampus returned strongly with a completely new design and leading innovation in watchmaking technology. Today, the Omega Seamaster Series 300m Diving Watch Titanium Tantalum Limited Edition is officially on the market. This watch continues the extraordinary design while inheriting the unique material of the prototype model-tantalum metal.

 In 1993, when the first 300-meter professional diving watch of the hippocampus series came out, Omega creatively incorporated tantalum metal into it. Tantalum is commonly used in the manufacture of electronic devices and medical devices. This blue-gray metal is rarer than gold, harder than steel, and extremely resistant to corrosion. Because of these characteristics, the processing technology of tantalum metal is very difficult, so the use of this metal element in the watchmaking industry is also extremely rare.

 At that time, the unique color of tantalum metal complemented the revolutionary design of the first 300-meter professional diving watch in the hippocampus series. Once launched, it was highly respected by watch lovers. Today, Omega has once again used tantalum to create a limited-edition titanium and tantalum watch for the 300-meter hippocampus diving watch, with a limited edition of 2,500 pieces worldwide.

 The innovative use of Sedna® 18K gold is also a feature of this limited edition watch. The crown, scale ring, helium exhaust valve, bracelet, hour scale and hands are made of Sedna® 18K gold. In addition, there is a Sedna® 18K gold plate on one side of the case, engraved with a limited number.

 The watch’s transparent back is printed with Omega’s iconic hippocampal motif and brand logo. Omega’s NAIAD lock technology ensures that the lettering and patterns are 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 antimagnetism, accuracy and overall performance.
