Just as with the past generation, the new Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Master Chronometer GMT uses a 43.5mm-wide steel case that measures some 17mm thick. This initial black/white version features the world’s first bi-ceramic polished bezel insert, with past models featuring a similar 24-hour scale, but limited to a single color. This new bi-directional bezel looks fantastic and is vaguely reminiscent of the black/silver aluminum bezel of the long-discontinued Seamaster Professional GMT 2234, with excellent legibility and strong contrast.
The dial continues the strongly legible design with the same layout we saw on previous models, with wide hands, large applied markers and a simple but easily distinguished GMT hand. Unlike most versions from the last generation, this new Cheap Omega Replica Seamaster Planet Ocean Master Chronometer GMT does not feature a GMT hand with any additional coloring. Most past models, aside from the versions with a platinum or gold case, have featured GMT hands with some use of orange.
Aside from the new dial and bezel materials, the main story here is the inclusion of the Planet Ocean models in Omgea’s growing Master Chronometer family. Thanks to the METAS-certified Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8906, the new Omega Replica Watches Seamaster Planet Ocean Master Chronometer GMT is magnetic resistant to 15,000 gauss, using Omega’s Si14 balance spring and a free-sprung balance. Ticking at 3.5Hz, the automatic 8906 features 60 hours of power reserve thanks to a pair of series-coupled barrels. The movement, replete with its rhodium-plated rotor and bridges, Geneva wave finishing, and blackened screws can be viewed via a newly designed sapphire display caseback. We’ll have to wait for hands-on images for that, though.
The new movement provides the same functionality and is controlled via a single crown at three. The HeV at 10 o’clock, now a signature element of modern Omega Replica Seamasters, also remains unchanged. As expected, the crystal is sapphire and has a dual-sided anti-reflective treatment, allowing for an unobstructed view of the polished black ceramic dial. As with other Planet Ocean models, the lume is blue Superluminova for the hour markers and hour hand, while the minute hand and bezel pip use a green material that provides faster low-light reading.
With a splash of orange, we welcome the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Master Chronometer watch in 43.5mm. You may have seen the teaser for this in your Instagram feed, and the reveal does not disappoint. Building upon the new brand standard set by the 2015 Globemaster, this Cheap Omega Replica Seamaster Planet Ocean Master Chronometer features the familiar Co-Axial Master Chronometer 8900 movement and can also be seen as an example of Omega’s vision moving forward with its use of atypical materials like a partially rubberized bezel.
The bezel looks stunning and actually features a grey silicon nitride rubber blended with ceramic over the first fifteen minutes, and the minute scales on the bezel after the first fifteen minutes are in Omega’s Liquidmetal. Moving to the polished black ceramic dial, the numbered Arabic numeral hour markers are applied, and there is a black recessed date window at 3 o’clock. Flipping the watch over will reveal a pattern that produces a wave effect on the case back, though we’ll need to wait to see it hands-on in person for a look at that. Of course, the Omega Replica Watches Seamaster Planet Ocean features the nearly standard helium escape valve which might actually come in handy if you decide to take it underwater near the 600m it is rated for.
Brand-wide implementation of the METAS certified Co-Axial Chronometer movements are a central part of Omega’s mission, and this watch runs on the Calibre 8900 movement. This is the same movement used in the Omega Globemaster, the inaugural watch to feature a Master Chronometer movement. This affords the watch magnetic resistance up to 15,000 gauss and a frequency of 25,200 vph, which allows for a 60-hour power reserve.
The sporty nature of the Omega Replica Seamaster Planet Ocean Master Chronometer is refreshing and the orange against black meshes well here. This is a bold diver, and it comes on an integrated black or grey structured rubber strap with orange lining. It’s the most affordable of the new Omega Planet Ocean watches.
We haven’t seen major changes to Omega’s signature dive watch since the 8500 revisions, but even then, the pace of updates since the Planet Ocean’s conception in 2005 has remained glacial at best. This time around, however, the refresh is considerably more significant – starting with the movement: all Planet Ocean watches are now equipped with the 9900 series co-axial master chronometer developed by Cheap Omega Replica and certified by METAS for accuracy and long-term reliability. Even more importantly, though, these movements are fully anti-magnetic and boast an impressive 60-hour power reserve, making them not only beautiful, but exceptionally practical for the modern age.
This particular Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Master Chronometer Chronograph marks the first time we’ve seen a METAS-certified master chronometer chronograph movement, but it’s something we’ve long suspected wasn’t far away. However, why Omega chose to debut this movement in a dive watch rather than starting with its signature Omega Replica Watches Speedmaster chronograph collection isn’t immediately clear, though it probably suggests that the movement just wasn’t quite ready last year when we were assaulted from every possible side of the moon in the massive Speedy refresh.
Either way, the new Planet Ocean watches are here, and they bring not only a new movement for their new, thinner cases, but a full implementation of Omega’s best technologies like 18K Sedna gold, Liquidmetal, and ceramic. This particular Omega Replica Planet Ocean Master Chronometer Chronograph uses all three – marrying a 45.5mm stainless steel and 18K Sedna rose gold case with a black, or deep blue ceramic dial and bezel. The dial itself is fitted with Omega’s applied Ceragold indices and finished with an arabic “12” at the top of the dial – which, you’ll note has also been subtly updated with modernized font that seems to more closely reflect the font used on the bezel. It also could be a more concerted effort to drive the Planet Ocean into the future while distancing itself from the vintage-inspired styling expressed on previous Planet Oceans and the Seamaster 300.
