Set a course for adventure with this classic Omega Seamaster 300M stainless steel men's automatic chronometer watch, part of Omega's James Bond collection. You'll be able to negotiate all manner of adventures and still look stylish in the boardroom or at the baccarat table. This highly accurate, self-winding timepiece is also a great diving watch, with water resistance to 300 meters (984 feet) and a helium escape valve, which allows helium to escape from inside the watch when the watch is worn in highly pressurized environments (such as long-term underwater work evading the bad guys). The large silver rhodium-plated case measures 41mm wide (1.61 inches) and it's complemented by a handsome stainless steel bracelet band. A blue elapsed time unidirectional bezel frames a wavy blue dial that includes luminous dotted hour markers, luminous-tipped skeleton hands, and a date window at 3 o'clock. Other features include a 48-hour power reserve and scratch-resistant and glare-proofed domed sapphire crystal.
It's powered by Omega's break-through Co-Axial escapement. Developed in conjunction with master watchmaker George Daniels, it's based on double co-axial escape wheel, a lever with three pallet stones and impulse stone on the balance roller, together with a free sprung-balance. The Co-Axial escapement system reduces sliding friction compared with the lever escapement and thus ensures greater accuracy over time.
This watch also features the Omega 2500 caliber automatic movement, which has been certified as a chronometer by the COSC (Swiss Official Chronometer Control). Only 3 percent of watches produced in Switzerland are "chronometer-certified." To achieve this highly coveted certification, the movements are subjected to numerous tests over a period of 15 consecutive days and nights, in five positions and at three different temperatures.

When I was applying for real jobs after a stint in the IDF I told myself that as soon as I could, I would buy this watch. I saved and saved, and the time came. I ended up first getting the mid-size version off a really good eBay deal. Well, I am 6'4 and 200 pounds. So, I'm not a small person really. The mid-size should be avoided at all costs - it's not the watch you want.
Look, I could write a novel about my Omega that I purchased here on Amazon. I bought it back in 2012, and it has been a workhorse ever since. I only take it off to exercise, sleep, and serious manual labor. I love wearing it when I shoot guns or do manly stuff, just like Bond would do.
The 2220.80 is amazing, and Amazon gives you a mint, brand new, in box, absolutely legit model. Pull the trigger, my friend, and join the SMP club.
I received the watch via UPS and the packaging was neat and complete. To erase all doubts about the authenticity of the watch, I took it to an OMEGA boutique store and had them inspect he watch. Although they could not officially "certified" the watch, the boutique manager had no doubts the watch I purchased from Amazon was authentic.
I have been wearing the watch for about one month now and I am glad I went with Omega. The watch keeps its time well as I wear it everyday. The design fits well with any setting.
I have no regrets purchasing my first high end watch through Amazon!!!
I had somewhat of a concern by ordering a "gray market" watch, but I had ordered a Luminox ETA automatic from Amazon about 4 or 5 years ago and had good luck with it and also saved about $200.00.
I read all of the reviews here on Amazon and even went to watch forums such as [...] and read reviews. The folks on timezone appear to only purchase through authorized dealers. Fortunately by going to a forum I learned about some very important things surrounding the watch such as serial numbers and a little "red dot" that Omega applies to watches out of the factory. I had concerns about this and thought that if I saw anything suspicious that I could just return the watch to Amazon. Man was I happy after inspecting it! Sure enough, all of the serial numbers were there from the multiple cards that come with the watch to the little "medallions" that are tied to the watch upon opening. The watch itself has the laser engraved serial number in the appropriate place also. I had heard that some "gray market" watches do not come with everything, from what I have seen, my purchase from Amazon did. I realize that it can only be covered under warranty through Amazon, but by saving hundreds if not close to a "grand" that's fine with me.
Now to that little "red dot". Sure enough it is there and it acts as a tiny little "bridge" between the case and the screwed on case back. It tells you if anyone has opened the case since it came from the factory as the little dot will break upon opening the case. I guess if someone really wanted to take the time they could "paint" it back on, but it would be difficult as I'm not sure it's exactly paint.
This is the new "007" watch with the Co-Axial movement in it and it is super quiet! If I didn't know that it was an auto, I'd think it was a quartz. You can't feel it moving around either on your wrist.
The fit and finish of the watch is second to none. I'm really not sure why Rolex charges as much as they do, the Omega seems like a bargain actually, even though it's still an expensive watch. So far, as I write this review at 4:31 p.m., it seems to be keeping fine time. I'll have to wait and see how it is tomorrow. When I received my Luminox I had to take it and have it calibrated as it was way too fast upon arrival, it keeps perfect time now. I'm hoping that this Omega Chronometer will not need adjusting. You'd think since it is a "certified chronometer" that you would not need it, but I've read of several people having to have theirs adjusted, even folks that bought from authorized dealers.
I can see why this model is so popular, it's just a really fine time piece. Those luminous hands and hour markers as just as stated, they glow bright and for a long time!
I know that some say that they would NEVER buy "gray market", but I've always had excellent service with Amazon and since I had no issues with my first watch from them, I'm sure glad I took advantage of their offer and purchased this fine time piece! All in all, for the savings it was worth it and I'll continue to purchase my time pieces from Amazon.
Hope this review helps anyone with reservations about purchasing an expensive time piece from Amazon.
UPDATE: December 13, 2009
Merry Christmas all. Just wanted to give a short update on my SMP 300. As You can see, I purchased this watch back in August. This has to be one of the finest watches that I have ever purchased hands down! It keeps perfect time. I can set it to an atomic clock and it will still be within 1 second 72hrs later. Amazing. Again, by purchasing mine through Amazon, it came with all of the cards, boxes, matching serial numbers, red dot on caseback in tact, everything!
UPDATE 10/24/2010 - This still has got to be one of THE best purchases I have ever made! This watch is just truly fantastic. I have had zero problems with it and it just keeps fantastic time. It's amazing that a mechanical watch can keep this good of time. The watch is just plain solid and wears extremely well. I wear this thing everyday to work and to work out in the yard in and it still looks brand new. If you've been contemplating this watch and Amazon is offering it directly, then you will not be sorry if you purchase it. I stress though, I would only feel comfortable purchasing it though if Amazon were the merchant and not a 3rd party. I realize that there are fine and honest 3rd party vendors, but with Amazon, you know that they will take care of you. It also comes with all cards, papers and such from Amazon. I love this watch!
A Swiss watchmaker with whom I deal has told me that the Omega Co-Axial movement is the finest automatic movement in the world. Judging by the way the Seamaster keeps time, I can't argue with him. You can easily spend twice as much on a Rolex or Bulgari, to name just two brands, but you will not find better build quality or time keeping.
I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase!
But my Dad loves it and is always wearing it. To be completely honest, at first glance, it does not look like a watch worth over $3,000. But when you look at it closely, the mechanics and details are just perfect.
