Omega Planet Ocean

As many of you might know, Omega watches are built like tanks and have delivered precision timing for many years. The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean is the watch of choice of Mr. Bond, James Bond. The Planet Ocean is featured in the newest Bond movie: Quantum of Solace. Omega was also the brand chosen by NASA when deciding on a chronograph that would be suitable for the astronauts on their space missions. Even though the “Moon Watch” was the Speedmaster Professional Chronograph (which will be shown in a later post), it is a great honor for Omega watches.

Getting back to the main topic, the Omega Planet Ocean is a very spirited divers’ watch, which is often compared to the Rolex Sea-Dweller. The model that I featured is 42mm, Automatic Co-Axial movement, official chronometer, stainless steel case and bracelet, unidirectional rotating bezel, helium escape valve and is water resistant up to 600m (2,000ft) (the highest resistance offered by Omega). Even though I do not personally own this model, I love the new look of the Omega Seamaster, especially this model showing the orange numbers. It also offers the very attractive big arrows on the hands, the date shown at the 3 o’clock position and has an impressive power reserve of 48 hours. Omega watch reference: 2201.51.00

  1. Great post, Jim! I'm also a fan of the orange numbers and feel like it is one of Omega's trademarks that you can see from a mile away. Is this what you do at work while trying to hit call time? LOL JK
