Established in 2015, Nekton is a not-for-profit research foundation committed to the protection and management of the world’s oceans. To achieve these important goals, the UK registered charity works in collaboration with the University of Oxford and draws support from committed partners willing to unite behind a common purpose, such as OMEGA.

OMEGA’s partnership

From the creation of the first divers’ watch made for everyone, to our role in the record-breaking Five Deeps Expedition, OMEGA is a brand with a strong connection to the sea. As well as producing depth-defying watches, OMEGA supports individuals and organisations committed to expanding our knowledge of the world’s oceans.

“Nekton undertakes missions for and on behalf of island and coastal nations.”

First Descent

In 2019, Nekton began a series of expeditions carried out across the Indian Ocean, aiming to develop the skills, knowledge and networks within marine science and ocean management.

Seamaster 2

The famous Seamaster has played a key role in OMEGA’s ocean story. That legacy has been acknowledged by the team at Nekton, who dubbed their submersible Seamaster 2, in tribute to the boat skippered by the late Sir. Peter Blake. The legendary round-the-world yachtsman was a passionate advocate of ocean conservation and a close friend of OMEGA.

Sea change

The Nekton team believe a healthy planet is dependent on a healthy ocean. With this mission statement in mind, they’re aiming to support the protection of at least 30% of the ocean by 2030, by using cutting-edge technology to find out how the ocean is changing - and why.

“Nekton’s aim is to conserve, inspire and exchange knowledge, through applied research.”

OMEGA’s Nekton Editions

To support Nekton, OMEGA has produced two editions of the Diver 300M. One with integrated black rubber strap, the other on a steel bracelet. Both Seamaster timepieces in polished-brushed stainless steel, feature a laser ablated black ceramic [ZrO2] dial, grade 5 titanium bezel and caseback embossed with Nekton submarine medallion.
