Omega Seamaster

Since it is the Royal Wedding and all, I thought we have a look at what watch Prince or the Duke of Cambridge wears. The watch is none other then the Omega Seamaster 300M Mid Size Quartz. The watch, reference 2561.80.00 is the mid-size version of the Seamaster 300M or also known as the Bond Omega. The other difference is that the watch is a quartz powered Omega Seamaster 300M. Sadly Omega no longer makes the watch.

The Seamaster is believed to have been a gift from his mother, the late Princess Diana. From photographs of Prince William, he seems to only wear this watch and has been wearing this watch for more then a decade. 

Basic specifications:

Functions: hours, minutes, seconds and date(3 o'clock position)
Movement: Omega calibre 1538
Case: stainless steel, 36.25 mm diameter
Crystal: domed sapphire
Water resistant: 30 ATM

The watch.
