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).
