It also reached the feat of timing the 1932 Los Angeles Olympic Games. Undoubtedly, this watch is of unrivaled accuracy and precision, emerging on top of the clock engineering game.

The conception of the Seamaster watches

For most of us, Seamaster watches are also known as James Bond watches. But it is more than just being James Bond’s accessory; it is a watch with the prestige of its own, especially appealing to divers not only because of its precision but also because of its high water resistance rate that sets it apart from all the other collections of Omega Watches.

The collection has surprised the watchmaking industry with its unique O-ring gasket, which enhances the timepiece’s water-proof quality, withstanding the most drastic temperature shift underwater. It is assured that the watch will perfectly stay still in underwater exploration through its hardy rubber gasket.

We will be talking about its aesthetics, what vibe it exudes, what it is specifically made of; from its case, band down to its dial. We will also be talking about the accuracy of the watch and dive into how strong it can withstand the underwater depth and pressure.
