Omega Goes Big, Goes Deep, With the Seamaster Planet Ocean

Omega has been busy refreshing some of their most popular watches for the spring.

Let’s start with the word on the Seamaster Ultra Deep, which adds some serious James Cameron The Abyss type depth resistance to the mix. It’s got a stunning blue dial, although it does look a bit like a porthole with that huge bezel.

You can get an orange version, plus you can choose steel – sorry Megasteel – or NATO/silicone straps.

Here’s the press info;

ULTRA DEEP, ULTRA TECH

Tested in real ocean conditions during its development, the design is water-resistant to 6,000 metres (20,000 ft.) and meets the ISO 6425:2018 standard for saturation divers’ watches.

This 45.5 mm wide model in robust O-MEGASTEEL features a polished black ceramic bezel with its diving scale in Liquidmetal™. Through the protuberant and domed sapphire crystal, the lacquered gradient dial transitions from blue to black, and has been given 18K white gold hands and hour markers, which are all coated with white Super-LumiNova.

The watch is set on an O-MEGASTEEL bracelet with OMEGA’s patented extendable foldover rack-and-pusher with complementary length adjustment and an extra diver extension, while on the caseback’s Grade 5 titanium medallion, there is a laser-engraved Sonar emblem with the iconic OMEGA Seahorse at its centre. Inside, the watch is driven by the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8912.

It retails at just over 10K in the UK by the way.
