OMEGA

An­other model re­leased in 2016 is this take on Omega’s Sea­mas­ter Planet Ocean line with a Sedna gold case that, at the time of re­lease, was billed as a ladies’ watch. Sized at 39.5 mm, we think this is a watch that can ef­fort­lessly bound be­tween the bar­ri­ers of gen­der and could be per­fect for shar­ing be­tween a hus­band and wife. While the de­sign and lay­out of this watch are sim­i­lar to pre­vi­ous Planet Ocean it­er­a­tions, the move­ment used here was the real dis­tin­guish­ing fac­tor. For the first time in the Planet Ocean lineup, Omega used a Master Chronome­ter des­ig­nated cal­iber. Vis­i­ble through the watch’s ex­hi­bi­tion case­back, Cal­iber 8801 re­ceived the brand’s METAS cer­ti­fi­ca­tion and boasted anti-mag­netic prop­er­ties up to 15,000 gauss. The 39.5 mm siz­ing was also a new avail­abil­ity for Omega (who pre­vi­ously of­fered a uni­sex Planet Ocean op­tion at 42 mm). The us­age of the pro­pri­etary Sedna gold al­loy for the case, buckle and in­dexes was a good choice as well, ef­fec­tively com­ple­ment­ing the at­trac­tive, ma­hogany-brown dial and brown leather strap with rub­ber lin­ing. Did we men­tion it’s wa­ter­proof to 600 me­ters? Price: $21,000.
