Omega’s new diver adds colour to the trend for all-black time­pieces.

TAK­ING A DEEP DIVE INTO OMEGA’S LAT­EST PIECE.

GQ (Australia) - - INSIDE -

First re­vealed in June of last year, you can now fi­nally get your hands on an Omega ‘Planet Ocean Deep Black Col­lec­tion’. With its 45.5mm ce­ramic case, METAS (Swiss Fed­eral In­sti­tute of Metrol­ogy) cer­ti­fi­ca­tion for mag­netic re­sis­tance and 60-hour re­serve, this div­ing watch has in­tegrity but, to be deeply su­per­fi­cial, it’s all about the stun­ning new colour. This may well mean we’ve reached peak all-black pieces, so think of its stylis­tic vari­a­tions with colour ac­cents – in gold (pic­tured, left), blue or red – like a pop of colour on a dark out­fit. Shades aside, there are other dif­fer­ences – the black and gold ac­cented edi­tions have pol­ished cases and di­als, while the coloured mod­els are brush fin­ished. And the gold ver­sion comes with a leather strap, de­spite the other mod­els boast­ing fab­ric-look­ing rub­ber. Take your pick, but in GQ’S opin­ion the red ver­sion goes faster – while keep­ing per­fect time.

CE­RAMIC ‘PLANET OCEAN 600M DEEP BLACK’ WATCH, $15,075, BY OMEGA.
