The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean

We live on a blue planet.  2/3 of our planet's surface is covered by water.  It's only natural that humans yearn to explore the sea.  We swim.  We sail.  We dive.  We need watches that will stand up to the rigors of the sea.  Many Omega Watches are engineered for the sea.  According to Omega, the Swiss firm created the first watch ever designed expressly for divers back in 1932.  Today, that heritage continues with a watch called the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean.

The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean is water resistant to 600 meters (2000 feet) and has professional dive features such as a helium escape valve and a screw in crown.  It also has a scratch resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment.  Despite the big features at 45.5 millimeter diameter case is well within the normal range of watch sizes. It's big enough to be bold, but not silly big.  



As a mechanical watch, the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean is a wonder.  It has an innovative co-axial automatic movement that is double-barreled to allow for winding in both directions.  The fast winding of the co-axial movement is combined with a 60 hour power reserve for a watch that keeps on going.  To see the beauty on the inside, a transparent caseback is provided.  The Omega Planet Ocean is an amazing watch for our amazing planet.

  1. A great luxury dive watch without question. However, there are many others to choose from for 1/10th the price that perform just as well.
