This self-winding, highly accurate is designed for deep diving, with water resistance of nearly 1000 feet (300 meters). The helium escape valve allows some amount of helium to be released when the watch is used deep underwater.
The Omega Men’s 2220.80.00 Seamaster measures 1.61 inches and it is complemented by an exceptional stainless steel bracelet band. There is a date indicator at “3” o’clock position, along with luminous-tipped skeleton hands and dotted hour markers. Other features are glare-proofed domed sapphire crystal and a 48 hours power reserve.
The watch is powered by Omega’s innovative co-axial escapement. Developed by master watchmakers, Omega’s solution is based on an intricate system with free-sprung-balance, double co-axial escape wheel and impulse and pallet stones on a balance roller. This technology is useful to substantially reduce sliding friction and ensure more accuracy over time.
The Omega Men’s 2220.80.00 Seamaster is certified by Swiss Official Chronometer Control and only 3 percent of wristwatches produced in the country receive this certification. Omega achieves this high coveted standard by undergoing more than two weeks of tests, in varying temperatures and positions. To prevent forgery, Omega also uses engraved serial number in certain spots.
The Omega Men’s 2220.80.00 Seamaster is known for long battery life and owners don’t need to replace its battery every one or two years. It looks robust and very solid; while feels bit heavier than Omega’s other watches. Omega is also known for very accurate watches and its products are usually only a couple of seconds faster than atomic clocks every day. This watch seems to gain fame after being used by the”James Bond” character in the Port Royale film.
Based on the user manual, owners only need to service the watch every four years if used normally. The watch should also appeal divers with its quick extension feature. Unfortunately, automatic watches are not always accurate and you may need to contact the customer service if the watch fails to meet the COSC’s rigorous standards, but this should be a very rare occurrence.
If you use this watch only for special events, it could be necessary to wind it manually after being kept in the drawer for a long time. In this case, it is a good idea to purchase a watch winder. The helium relief valve is unnecessary if you only plan to have some shallow scuba diving sessions. Nevertheless, this could be a feature you don’t mind to have. Owners should be aware that the Omega Men’s 2220.80.00 Seamaster can be rather expensive to repair.
