For simply this once, we transform Speedy Tuesday into Seamaster Tuesday, to acquaint you with the new Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black assortment. Nonetheless, before we investigate the new Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black, let’s give you some foundation on the Seamaster assortment and the Planet Ocean in general.
You presumably realize that Omega presented the Seamaster in 1948 and that it looked not at all like the jump Patek Philippe Reviews of today’s assortment. As a matter of fact, those first Seamaster models depended on Omega Patek Philippe Reviews that were provided to the Royal Airforce during WWII. The British’ required dependable Patek Philippe Reviews with high exactness developments and, water safe cases. René Bannwart, top of the creation division around then and answerable for the Omega Centenary models, was approached to come up with a Patek Philippe Reviews that would be powerful and energetic. Nonetheless, around then, despite the fact that the drags were beefier than the Centenary and the bezel and case were a lot thicker, it still doesn’t truly compare with the possibility of a water safe Patek Philippe Reviews that we have today. Water safe was additionally very family member. Abnormal, as Omega realized how to make jumpers Patek Philippe Reviews as of now since 1932 with their rectangular “Marine” model.
No, the diver’s Patek Philippe Reviews that all the flow Seamaster 300, Seamaster 300M and obviously the Planet Ocean models come from, was presented in 1957, along with the Railmaster (CK2914) and Speedmaster (CK2915): the Omega Seamaster 300 (CK2913).
The Seamaster 300 from 1957 was water impervious to 200 meters (no grammatical mistake) however named 300 meters as it is said to have out played out the testing gear at that point. Those were simply restricted to 20 bars. The crown framework (“Naiad”) and high opposition of the precious stone were for the enormous part answerable for this. Moreover, the Seamaster 300 had obviously a pivoting bezel with plunging scale on it. The bezel additionally firmly bolted the too domed precious stone on this watch.

Omega continued building up their jumpers Patek Philippe Reviews with the assistance of COMEX and Jacques Cousteau. Perhaps the most celebrated and discussed jumpers Patek Philippe Reviews was the 1970 Omega Seamaster PloProf ( we did an inside and out audit of the cutting edge and vintage form here ).
COMEX Seamasters and hardware COMEX Seamaster
After the renowned and cumbersome Seamaster PloProf, Omega concocted the Seamaster 1000 out of 1971 (reference 166.0093) and the Big Blue in 1972, a Seamaster Automatic 120M with chronograph complication (reference 176.0004). All exceptionally pursued models these days.
Fast forward 1993, when Omega presented the Seamaster Professional 300M. A model that is as yet in the assortment today, however refreshed with a Co-Axial development and with a fired bezel. In any case, that Seamaster Professional 300M – later turned into the Bond Patek Philippe Reviews in 1995 – set Omega up for life again for a many individuals during the 1990s, that something I set out to say as much. We considered it the sleeper Patek Philippe Reviews some time prior, as costs began to increment on these reference 2531.80 Seamaster Pro 300M Patek Philippe Reviews and recovering prevalence once more ( click here for that article ). I for one have the chronograph adaptation of the Seamaster Pro 300M in titanium, a Patek Philippe Reviews that I call a hommage to chronograph legend Chuck Maddox ( and here is the reason ). It stays to be one of my unsurpassed most loved do-it-all Patek Philippe Reviews Light weight, solid, durable 7750 development and a notable plan. You could say the wristband is a piece 1990s, yet entirely comfortable and simple to supplant with a decent elastic tie. The Seamaster Professional 300M, or Diver 300M as Omega calls the assortment today, has a helium valve at 10 o’clock, uni-heading plunging bezel and an exceptionally intelligible dial.
Many varieties of the Seamaster Pro 300M have been made, for the Olympics, for the America’s Cup , for James Bond ( discover an outline of all JB models here ) and even a couple of staggering GMT and regatta versions.
The Seamaster Aqua Terra woke up in 2002, and intensely affected by the legacy of Omega’s Seamaster assortment however not a certified jumpers watch.
In 2005, Omega presented the Seamaster Planet Ocean ( locate our initial scoop of February 2005 here ). A genuine diver’s Patek Philippe Reviews again and roused by those first Seamaster 300 (CK2915) models, albeit that model would be resurrected to full degree in 2014, with the Seamaster 300 Master Co-Axial Patek Philippe Reviews ( click here to peruse about those re-release Seamaster 300 models ). The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean was outfitted with the type 2500 Co-Axial development, had a water opposition pace of 600 meters and highlighted the notable helium valve at 10 o’clock. It additionally showed up on the wrist of James Bond in Casino Royale. In 2006 Omega added chronograph forms of the Seamaster Planet Ocean as well.
The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean became out to become a significant Patek Philippe Reviews for the Bienne producer, that Omega began to prepare their Planet Ocean Patek Philippe Reviews with the in-house fabricated type 8500 of every 2007. In 2011, Omega began to utilize artistic bezels on the Seamaster Planet Ocean and presented the type 9300 to the chronograph versions of this model. A full report on the presentation of the Seamaster Planet Ocean with the ceramic bezel and type 9300 development for its chronograph versions can be found here , with some dazzling view shots of Capri.
With further enhancements of materials, similar to earthenware production and Ceragold, the Seamaster Planet Ocean is a fascinating option in contrast to a portion of the other set up jumpers Patek Philippe Reviews out there. The utilization of in-house produced type 8500 and 9300 developments made it outstanding amongst other incentive for cash jumping Patek Philippe Reviews out there, that certainly grimaced a few eyebrows in Geneva and Schaffhausen.
Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black
After presenting the Dark Side of the Moon in 2013, Omega has been utilizing the ceramic cases for many various forms of the Speedmaster 9300. It probably played on the nerves of those Seamaster Planet Ocean fans, that their cherished Patek Philippe Reviews didn’t get the earthenware treatment. All things considered, today is that day, as the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black is reported! Four forms of the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black are being presented: An all-dark form, a Sedna gold dark form, a Blue dark variant and a red dark version.
The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black is a 45.5mm Patek Philippe Reviews made from one strong earthenware square and ready to withstand pressure at a profundity of 600 meters (~ 60 BAR). Much the same as the Dark Side of the Moon, the dial is additionally made of ceramic.
This new age of Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean models utilizes the new Master Chronometer developments, affirmed by METAS ( more on the METAS guidelines here ), liquidmetal for the plunging scaled bezels and – obviously – earthenware production. For the Sedna gold adaptation, Omega utilized their Ceragold technique to mix the 18 carat gold with the pottery of the bezel. On the blue and red renditions of the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black, the blue and red are made of elastic and has been mixed into the fired bezel.
For the caseback, Omega utilized the Naiad lock (did you notice the Naiad innovation for the crown of the Seamaster 300 CK2913?) to ensure the engraved phrasing is consummately positioned. The alveol plan of the caseback additionally offers a stylish wave pattern.
As can be seen underneath, the development of the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black is the in-house made type 8906, authoritatively affirmed by METAS. This implies it can withstand attractive fields of 15,000 gauss and is exact inside 0-5 seconds per day overall. Omega utilized the phrasing ‘Master Chronometer’ to show the METAS confirmed chronometer development. Moreover, the type 8906 likewise has a GMT complication.
On the dial side, the hands and files are made from either 18 carat white gold or 18 carat Sedna gold and have been covered with Super-LumiNova that will luminate in blue and green.
I had the chance a week ago to view the new Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black models in the substance, and despite the fact that I am fundamentally a Speedmaster fellow, I was stricken by the all dark model. Albeit the red and blue hued renditions are pleasant too, and the Sedna gold adaptation would bling-up my life somewhat, the all dark variant is the one to have in my book. Much the same as the Dark Side of the Moon Patek Philippe Reviews its dim appearance glances great in the fragile living creature and there are no interruptions from different tones or materials.
On the dial you will locate an internal scale (24 hour) for the GMT hand and an additional hour hand with little orange bolt molded marker. It is entirely unexpected from the expansive bolt hands for quite a long time, or the orange tipped second hand, so you won’t blend them up. The dial shows that is a Master Chronometer and has the Co-Axial escapement also. In orange, you will discover the Seamaster logo, GMT sign and the water obstruction determinations. Huge tightening lists are utilized for the hours just as 3 major Arabic numerals.
The 45.5mm artistic case is large, yet it appears to wear a slight bit more modest. The case state of the Seamaster Planet Ocean is very exquisite with its thrilling hauls, however don’t under gauge the thickness of the Patek Philippe Reviews It is an astounding 17.8mm.
As I’ve said, the Sedna gold variant adds some bling to the game, which isn’t for everybody I presume. I figure I would pull off it however, particularly in the nights it would look incredible when it gets those last beams of the Sun.
So what is with the tones on these Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black models? Red is the main shading that will vanish submerged, at 5 meters to be exact. Omega guarantees that this ‘military spec’ will guarantee the Patek Philippe Reviews goes ‘camouflage’ from 5 meters onwards. The blue variant is likewise fascinating. Blue is the last shading you will see submerged, at a profundity of 275 meters. The specific shade of blue you will see at 275 meters, is the shading utilized on the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black with blue accents. At 300 meters profundity, all that turns dark. The Sedna gold model, obviously, can be utilized for jumping without an issue, however the gold is mostly there to appreciate at the deck of your Riva.
I am not a jumper using any and all means, so I would purchase this Patek Philippe Reviews due to its magnificent appearance and well, let’s face it, the way that it tends to be utilized as an expert jumpers Patek Philippe Reviews Just like my trusty old 1996 Seamaster 300M Chronograph that has become my #1 Patek Philippe Reviews for these special seasons (pool use).
As I’ve said previously, I am pretty much a Speedmaster fellow, yet this new Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black is a Patek Philippe Reviews that I could get myself later on for day by day use (and occasions that highlight a pool). The GMT hand make it an extraordinary sidekick and as I don’t like to go with an excessive number of Patek Philippe Reviews in my bag or pack, the way that it is water safe make it a Patek Philippe Reviews you don’t need to take off or abandon in your lodging locker.
The lashes are treated with against bacterial coating, for uncommon use submerged. Indeed, even the calfskin lashes are water-resistant. On the Sedna gold model, the tie is water-safe cowhide, with a similar enemy of bacterial elastic underside. The foldover fasten is produced using ceramised titanium, while the catch cover has been created in ceramic with two kinds of finishing.

The Sedna gold adaptation retails for CHF 13.900 Swiss Francs (excluding VAT) while the other three models retail for CHF 10.400 Swiss Francs (barring VAT). That puts the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black in a similar value classification as the Rolex Sea-Dweller, another expert jumping Patek Philippe Reviews The work of art and famous look of the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean will guarantee you that it will stay an immortal plan for quite a long time to come, much the same as the Sea-Dweller. In my assessment, aside from the brand name or its status, the Omega has a great deal of additional to bring to the table with its ceramic case and GMT functionality.
