Black Dial Black Rubber Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Replica Watch
The Black Rubber Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Replica Watch family is a core range of Omega’s watchmaking heritage and the sportiest member of the 1950’s trio, which also includes the classic Railmaster and the Speedmaster, the first and only watch worn on the moon. All three share design features such as the distinct case design, the curved horns and contrasting polished and brushed surfaces.
The chronograph push-buttons, made of steel and decorated with a coloured aluminium ring, are functional to 600 metres/2000 feet while the domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal has received an anti-reflective treatment on both sides for optimum clarity.
For all the technological advances, the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Replica Watch range is a Seamaster through and through. We are reminded of its origins by the Seamaster’s traditional Seahorse emblem on the screw-down back, the fluted bezel and strong use of contrasting colours on the dial. The facetted rhodium-plated arrowhead hour and minute hands have SuperLuminova inserts and a highly visible orange tip further enhances the luminous arrowhead seconds hand. Along with the luminous dot on the bezel, the high visibility of the markers and hands are invaluable for measuring precise dive times, even when descending to the darkest depths of the ocean.
Positioned at 10 o’clock and embossed with the chemical symbol for helium “He”, the helium escape valve allows any atoms of this gas to escape during decompression. This is a vital function when using a diving bell, as minuscule helium atoms are able to penetrate the case and could damage the watch when expansion occurs during decompression.
The matt black dial offers excellent contrast thanks to applied luminous hour markers and the use of Arabic numerals in either white or orange at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock.
The Omega Seamaster Replica Watch Calibre 2500 high-quality self-winding mechanical movement with a power reserve of 48 hours drives the Planet Ocean. The Co-Axial escapement, proprietary Omega technology, considerably reduces friction in the heart of the watch mechanism and offers improved long-term reliability and accuracy. A free-sprung balance further improves this COSC-certified chronometer.
Beyond the requisites of a professional diver’s Omega Replica Watch (300 metres/1000 feet) this model is water resistant to 600 metres/2000 feet. Other features that distinguish this as a professional diver’s instrument are the screw-in crown and screw-down case back, the helium escape valve, the fluted uni-directional rotating bezel featuring a luminous dot and the highly visible hands on the dial.
