Bringing together luxury and performance, Omega has consistently redefined state-of-the art mechanical watchmaking since 1884 – paving the way for precision timepieces that are captivating, inspiring, and beautifully engineered. Omega have been witness to some of mankind’s most historic moments: from having supplied NASA with the Speedmaster Professional which went on to become the first watch worn on the moon during the Apollo space missions, to being the official timekeeper to the Olympic games, witnessing some of sport’s greatest achievements. Exploring the dark side of the ocean, OMEGA has evolved its ceramic expertise to produce the Seamaster Planet Ocean “Deep Black”�. This remarkable 45. 5 mm lifestyle timepiece is the combination of a GMT model and a diving watch. The glossy brushed case body has been crafted from a single block of ceramic, while the 18K Sedna gold bezel features a ceramic bezel ring with a Ceragold diving scale. 18K Sedna gold is used again to create the crown and helium escape valve, as well as the hands and indexes that are coated in white Super-Lumi Nova. On the black ceramic dial, a GMT ring has been added, as well as 18K Sedna gold Arabic numerals. In another first, OMEGA has created an oriented screw-in case back so that the engraved wording sits pleasingly in position. This has been achieved through OMEGA’s new and patented ceramic Naiad Lock. Other features include an alveol pattern on the screw-in case back and a water-resistant leather strap with a rubber lining that has an anti-bacterial treatment. The Planet Ocean “Deep Black”� is water-resistant to 60 bar and is driven by the OMEGA Master Chronometer calibre 8906. To achieve Master Chronometer status, it has passed the 8 rigorous tests set by METAS (The Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology).
