Seamaster Apnea is a dive watch by Omega.

This diver's chronograph, launched in summer 2003, was developed by Omega in cooperation with the known free-diver and world record holder Jacques Mayol. (The life story of this extraordinary man, who without breathing apparatus, reached more than 100 m as the first, and his rivalry with his former childhood friend Enzo Maiorca served as the basis of the cult film The Big Blue. During the filming Mayol acted as advisor.)

The special feature of this watch are the seven color discs. At the start of the chrono function, starting from the left, per minute a half slice fills up with red, so that after 14 minutes all the colored areas are red. This provides free divers (apnea divers) a simple way of reading time. Also other divers can use this feature, since with only one tank reserve of breathing air they may stay underwater no longer than 15 minutes.

On the screwed caseback of the watch the name of Jacques Mayol and a stylized representation of human and dolphin is imprinted.
