DEEP DIV­ING

The Peak (Malaysia) - - The Brief -

Omega in­tro­duces a mas­ter­piece that seam­lessly melds ocean and time­keeper.

Wa­ter­proof watches are not a nov­elty in the world of horol­ogy. Omega’s lat­est Sea­mas­ter Planet Ocean “Deep Black”, how­ever, is truly an epit­ome of tech­ni­cal ex­cel­lence and stylish de­sign. Evolv­ing from the Speed­mas­ter Dark Side of the Moon that was first re­leased in 2013, this new time­piece rep­re­sents as next step in the evo­lu­tion of ce­ramic watch­mak­ing. In a first for Planet Ocean, a sin­gle block of black ce­ramic forms the 45.5mm case body of each watch. On the black and 18K Sedna gold mod­els, the ce­ramic cases and dials have been pol­ished, while the blue and red ver­sions are brushed for a matte ef­fect that of­fers bet­ter vis­i­bil­ity un­der­wa­ter. The uni­di­rec­tional bezels are also made of black ce­ramic. Driven by the Omega Mas­ter Chronome­ter Cal­i­bre 8906, this en­tirely ce­ramic watch is for those who take their div­ing se­ri­ously as it is able to with­stand the pres­sures of the ocean at 60 bar (600m).
