Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean

The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 45.5mm Chronograph has a two-tone look, with a large case made of 18K Sedna gold and stainless steel and a bicolor bracelet combining the same materials. Both the dial and the unidirectional rotating bezel are in polished, deep blue ceramic; the numerals and diving scale notations on the bezel are in Omega’s own Ceragold material. The screw-down caseback, as on all the new Cheap Omega Replica Planet Ocean watches, is enhanced with an alveol wave pattern design. The movement in the watch is Omega’s Master Chronometer Caliber 9900, an automatic with a column-wheel chronograph function and a power reserve of 60 hours. Like all Master Chronometer calibers, it features a silicon balance spring and a co-axial escapement and is antimagnetic to 15,000 Gauss. The case is 18.87 mm thick and water-resistant to 600 meters. The dial’s bicompax design has a 60-minute and 12-hour chronograph counter combined in a single subdial at 3 o’clock, running seconds in a subdial at 9 o’clock, a central chronograph seconds hand, and a date window at 6 o’clock. The hands and applied indices are in Sedna gold and enhanced with Super-LumiNova.

The Seamaster Planet Ocean 43.5mm Auto marks another watch-world first for Omega, namely the blending of rubber with ceramic in a dive watch bezel. A bright orange rubber covers the first 15 minutes of the bezel’s dive scale, while Liquidmetal — a substance used in other Omega Replica Watches models and by other brands throughout the Swatch Group — is used for the numbers and scale increments. The 6000-meter water-resistant, 43.5-mm case is made of stainless steel (another model is available in titanium with a sandblasted titanium dial); the polished, black ceramic dial has new, applied Arabic numerals with an orange varnish. The structured rubber strap is black with a black-and-orange rubber inner lining. The watch is powered by the Master Chronometer Caliber 8900. Like all Semasters, it has a screw-down crown and a helium-release valve.

The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 43.50mm GMT, which contains Master Chronometer Caliber 8906, makes a stark, striking visual statement with its polished bi-ceramic black-and-white bezel ring. This watch’s bezel, with its 24-hour numbered scale, rotates in both directions — it’s for displaying a second time zone, not for diving — and serves as a day-night indicator for the central GMT hand. The numerals and indices on the black and white sections are in the contrasing ceramic color for easy legibility. The hands and indices are treated with Super-LumiNov, as is the dot at 12 o’clock, which also glows green. The stainless steel watch comes on a black leather strap with rubber lining and is fitted with a foldover clasp in stainless steel.

Both new Aqua Terra watches have cases made from grade 5 titanium and feature white lacquered dials highlighted by blue elements inspired by the color of the ocean — diamond-polished blue applied hour indices, faceted blue hands, and applied blue Omega logo. The dials are also notable for their lack of the distinctive “teakwood” motif found on other Aqua Terra dials. Both Cheap Omega Replica come on blue-coated nylon fabric straps with white stitching and foldover clasps; the 43-mm watch is also available on a polished-and-brushed titanium bracelets with butterfly clasp. Both cases have nonreflective sapphire crystals and screw-down crowns embossed with an Omega symbol.The larger of the Aqua Terra “Goodplanet” models has a 43-mm case and contains Omega Co-Axial Caliber 8605. In addition to the blue hands indicating the hours, minutes, and seconds, its dial has a red-tipped GMT hand that the wearer can use to keep track of a second time zone on a 24-hour time-zone scale, and a date window at 6 o’clock. The Omega Replica Watches movement is visible through a sapphire window in the caseback, which also includes the words “Goodplanet Foundation” in varnished blue type.

1744
The other new timepiece measures 38.5 mm in diameter and 12.84 mm thick. Its simpler dial layout features the blue hour markers and hands along with a date window at 3 o’clock. The movement, visible through a sapphire caseback, is Cheap Omega Replica basic Caliber 8500. It features bidirectional automatic winding, a co-axial escapement, silicon balance spring, free-sprung balance, and extreme antimagnetic properties, resisting magnetic fields to over 15,000 Gauss. Both calibers in the Aqua Terra Goodplanet watches have power reserves of 60 hours. The decorative finishes include “Arabesque” Geneva waves on the rotor and plate, rhodium plating, and a blackened finish on the screws, barrels, and balance wheel.

Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Collection

Just months after Omega fitted its Seamaster Planet Ocean dive watch collection with new models that feature the Omega Master Chronometer certification, the Bienne-based watchmaker this week again expands its Planet Ocean range with four black-ceramic-cased models.

Called Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black, the collection adds touches of color and gold to a one-piece 45.5-mm case of black zirconium oxide ceramic (ZrO2 technically, referred to as ceramic) complemented with similarly black ceramic bezels and dials. Cheap Omega Replica has devised a ceramic case for this collection that has been tested for water resistance to 600 meters, or about 2,000 feet, which the firm claims is the first ceramic watch case tested to reach such depths.

1595
The Planet Ocean Deep Black models differ by accent color (red, blue, black, or gold) and one features its bezel, crowns, hands and indices forged from Omega’s own 18k Sedna gold (above). All also boast a new GMT ring that has been fixed to the dial, while each model’s diving scale is built directly into the ceramic bezel using markers and numerals made with Liquidmetal (a substance used in other Omega Replica Watches models and by other brands throughout the Swatch Group) or Ceragold, a proprietary Omega gold-ceramic alloy.

1596
Omega injects red or blue vulcanized rubber directly into the bezels of two models to colorfully mark the 15-minute dive-time indication, as well as to match the hands and the 12, 6, and 9 indication colors on those models. (You’ll find similar color accents on the steel Planet Ocean watches that debuted at Baselworld this past March.) Rubber-injected “He” marks the Helium valve on the red and blue models, while the symbol is in Liquidmetal on the black model.

1597
Two Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black models — the Black and the Sedna gold versions — feature ceramic cases and dials polished for a glossy effect. The blue- and red-accented versions feature cases and dials that are matte finished, which Omega Replica says offers better visibility underwater. For the gold model, Omega uses its 18k Sedna gold to accent the hands and indices; the three other Deep Black dials feature hands and indices of 18k white gold.

1598
A look at the caseback of these new Deep Black models reveals more than a clear view of that Caliber 8906, which features a silicon balance spring, Omega’s proprietary Co-Axial escapement and a 60-hour power reserve. Developing a new ceramic case for dive models necessitated new technology, specifically a patented ceramic Naiad Lock, to ensure a water-resistant caseback for a material rarely used to case dive watches. With the caseback thus locked tight, Omega added another aesthetic touch to the Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black design by orienting the caseback so that the engraved wording always sits perfectly in position, with “Deep Black” at the top of the caseback and “Planet Ocean” below.

1599
Aeschlimann added in a statement that the new Deep Black collection “takes everything we’ve learned and developed over the years and combines these advancements into a truly striking collection of timepieces. It is a momentous occasion for Cheap Omega Replica to be here in New York and to share these watches for the first time.”

Omega Speedmaster Mark II Replica Watches

As many watch enthusiasts are aware, the wide-ranging Omega Speedmaster series — with its Moonwatches and auto-racing legends — has become one of the most popular and iconic series of watches available today. Each of the collection’s modern pieces, and subsequent “sub-series” like the Moonwatch, Speedmaster ’57, and Mark II families, have all built individual stories around themselves, attracting plenty of appreciation, for both the modern and historical versions, from connoisseurs and collectors of horology.

The Omega Speedmaster, originally released in 1957, went on to become the timepiece of choice for racecar drivers, astronauts, and various other adventurous types. But the line did not become iconic overnight: it was through years of tedious research, development, and field-testing that the Speedmaster series foiund its way onto the wrists of the people who needed them most. One instance of this testing was in the late 1960s, as part of a secret research project, conducted jointly by Omega and NASA, called “The Alaska Project.” Cheap Omega Replica, looking to continue to improve its space-ready watches, worked with NASA to produce a number of prototypes to replace what would later be called the Moonwatch.But in 1969, after about a million Swiss francs had been spent, and several years’ worth of man-hours had been worked, in trying to produce the perfect space watch, NASA ultimately decided the original Omega Moonwatch was sufficient for its mission to exploring the great beyond. Thus it happened that Omega, rather than creating the ultimate watch for space, used its findings from the project and began applying them to other models that would be available to the general public.

1536
From this was born the Mark series, originally the Mark II Ref. 145.014, easily recognizable as an example of the funky, 1970s style of watches characterized by thick cases, hidden lugs, and unusual colors. This series, while not as recognizable as the Moonwatch or George Clooney’s 1957-inspired Speedmaster, has nevertheless over the years developed its own well-deserved following, and still today represents a distinct watchmaking era in Omega Replica Watches history. Thus, in 2014, Omega revived the original 1969 piece in a largely faithful re-interpretation for modern consumers. It produced two interesting models to pay homage to ‘70s classic, and one with a unique dial and case variant in honor of the 2016 Summer Olympics.These modern watches have each been designed to reflect the maximum amount of “vintage flair,” while still offering excellent modern attributes. With a 42.4-mm brushed steel case and accompanying Omega Replica link bracelet, the modern piece is no longer the wide behemoth it might have been viewed as a few decades ago, but still sits rather thick upon the wrist as a result of its unusual, ovular-shaped case. There are two dial options — either the grey “Racing” style with its eye-catching orange accents or the classic black dial more reminiscent of other Speedmaster sub-series. Both feature a black outer tachymeter scale; an outer minute ring; three subdials to measure running seconds, chronograph minutes, and chronograph hours; and a date window at the 6 o’clock mark.

1537
Of course, as with any modern re-interpretation of a vintage watch, Omega Replica Watches has made a few minor adjustments for the benefit of the contemporary consumer. These include a modern automatic chronograph movement, which replaces the 1969-era, hand-wound Caliber 861; more indented subdials; the modern Speedmaster chronograph seconds counter; and, perhaps most obviously, the 6 o’clock date window. Other subtle changes include the tachymeter scale being slightly thinner to increase the visibility of the dial, as well as a slight coloring on the outermost edges of the minute ring, which are most noticeable on the “Racing” dial variant.

1538
The Cheap Omega Replica line will continue its status as a legend within the world of horology, an honor well-earned after the watch’s trip to the moon, not to mention the millions of dollars spent in research, development, and advertising. As such, it is to the brand’s benefit to continue producing modern watches with much of the flair of their historical predecessors. Furthermore, it is to its benefit to continue catering to that growing base of educated consumers looking to own a modern watch heavily based on a lesser known historical model—such as today’s contemporary  Omega Replica Watches Speedmaster Mark II.

Testing the Omega Seamaster Ploprof Replica

It was 1970, in the midst of an era that delighted in unusual shapes and bright colors, when Cheap Omega Replica first released the attention-getting Seamaster Professional 600m, nicknamed the Ploprof. The watch, designed in collaboration with the French industrial diving company Comex, was conceived for professional use: the name “Ploprof” stands for plongeurs professionels, or professional divers. While Omega emphasized its functions, the model perfectly suited the styles of the 1970s, with a gigantic and unusually shaped case, a red button to unlock the divers’ bezel, a bright orange strap and a minute hand of the same color.Program, with which Comex tested saturation diving for the Elf petroleum company. Three divers manned a pressured chamber 200 meters below the surface of the Omega Seamaster Replica Watches Gulf of Ajaccio, off Corsica, for eight consecutive days, during which they worked on the seafloor at 250 meters’ depth for up to six hours each day, setting a new depth record.

A nearly 0.5-cm-thick sapphire crystal ensures adequate resistance to pressure on the front of the case, enabling the Ploprof to withstand pressures equivalent to those found 1,200 meters underwater. Thanks to the case’s new construction, with its removable back, the Ploprof now also has an automatic helium valve so professional divers can wear it during saturation dives. The Omega Replica valve is positioned on the underside of the orange button’s outrigger and marked with the chemical abbreviation “He”beneath a coating of clear lacquer. The case is very well crafted; the beveled and polished edges contrast beautifully with the other surfaces, which have a matte-brushed finish.Minor changes have also been made on the dial. The date is no longer located at the 3 o’clock position but has been shifted to 4:30. A luminous index now occupies that space at 3 o’clock, adding to the dial’s very symmetrical appearance. The luminous indices on the new model are applied and polished, which makes the dial look much more valuable than it had looked with the old lacquered indices. The same is true for the stainless-steel button that unlocks the bezel. It is surrounded by an orange, anodized aluminum ring, which replaces the old model’s rubber ring. The combination not only looks better, but it’s also significantly harder.

1495
The new rotatable bezel is considerably sturdier, too. Its predecessor had been made of Bakelite, which easily developed hairline cracks; now the rotatable divers’ ring is covered by a calibrated scale made of scratch-resistant sapphire printed with a luminous minute-circle and a black background. Nonreflective coating on its outer surface ensures that it remains easy to read under all lighting conditions.Another alteration simplifies the operation. The Cheap Omega Replica rectangular crown on the original Ploprof had been set flush with its protector; the wearer had to turn a screw in front of the protector to operate the crown. Also, the crown’s shape made it somewhat difficult to turn when resetting the hands. The modern system is much more user-friendly: when screwed outward, the front part of the closed protector moves along with the crown, which is easy to grasp and to turn.The redesigned bracelet increases the wearing comfort of the new Ploprof, despite the watch’s heavy weight of 279 grams and brawny overall width of 55 millimeters. However, the raised relief of the seahorse emblem and stripes on the caseback presses somewhat uncomfortably against the wrist. The new model, like its 1970s predecessor, is also available with either an orange or a black strap. The modern strap is made of rubber and goes well with the watch’s styling, but it offers very little counterweight to the heavy case and makes the watch look top-heavy on the wrist.
With its large dimensions and martial exterior, the Omega Replica Watches Ploprof is certainly not the right wristwatch for every occasion, and even with the nearly perfect rate results, the cost-benefit ratio could still be better. Its price of $9,700 is high, but is at least partially justified by the impressive water resistance, successful 1970s styling, outstanding craftsmanship, clever extension system for the bracelet, and, above all, the top-quality manufacture movement that’s both well designed and very precise.
