I'm not so sure about this. I love Seamasters. Seamasters are a lot like cookies to me. I can't get enough of them.I really think it's a no brainer for OMEGA to release a no-date Seamaster Diver 300M. Not only to compliment the Diver 300M line, but also to fill the gap left by the short supply of ROLEX Submariners.
I wonder if this might be their way of testing the waters to see what kind of reception a no date variant would get. They create a unique Diver 300M no-date model with a view to only releasing it to the Swiss military. They leak the picture on their website and sit back to see what kind of response it gets from the community. If the demand is great enough, then they release a no-date variant of the 126.96.36.199.01.001, with polished ceramic dial, white lumed indices, and the usual, white, unlumed, enamel filled, polished, ceramic bezel.
I just think they'd be missing a HUGE opportunity to provide an option to all those folks hoping for a Submariner, but not knowing if they'll ever be worthy enough to receive "the call". They can't be oblivious to the fact that the market is primed for a watch like this.
However, IMO a Seamaster isn't going to satisfy someone who wants a Submariner. They're esthetically very different.
I've always bought a Seamaster because it IS a Seamaster.
