Master of the sea
Although Omega is a Swiss company based in the canton of Berne, its watches usually bear English names. This usually facilitates international understanding, but not everyone speaks English. So what does Omega Seamaster 300 M Diver Co-Axial Master Chronometer mean in German? Omega, the last letter in the Greek alphabet, is the name of the manufacturer of the watch, the alpha and omega of the watch world, so to speak. Seamaster translates as Seemeister, the master of the sea. In view of its popularity with divers, this is no inappropriate name for this watch. 300 M refers of course to the water resistance to 300 m and Diver is the English word for diver.
Master of time
Co-Axial means coaxial or equiaxed. Master means master and chronometer is a word for timepiece in German and English. The word Chrono refers to Chronos, the ancient Greek god of time and creator of the universe. Yes, not Zeus, the father of the gods, but the god of time created the Greek world, because time brings order to the previously existing chaos. According to this philosophy, the Omega Seamaster 300 M Diver Co-Axial Master Chronometer can be seen as the master of the world. It governs the sea and with the proven measuring accuracy of all Omega watches also the time.
