Today, the stylish OMEGA Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M Master Chronometer replica pays homage to OMEGA’s dive watch heritage. It was with OMEGA’s maritime legacy in mind that the brand launched its Planet Ocean line in 2005.
Other features include an alveol screw-in caseback and a grey structured rubber strap with orange stitching and lining.
The OMEGA Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M Master Chronometer is water resistant to 600 metres / 2000 feet / 60 bar, and has a helium-escape valve. The OMEGA Master Chronometer calibre 8900 at the heart of this timepiece can be seen through the transparent caseback. To achieve Master Chronometer status, it has passed the 8 rigorous tests set by METAS (The Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology).
This model, with its scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, features a sand-blasted grade 5 titanium dial with Arabic numerals and a date window at the 3 o’clock position. Mounted on the 43.5 mm grade 5 titanium case, is the world’s premiere grey silicon nitride ceramic bezel with orange rubber. The diving scale of the bezel is crafted with Liquidmetal®.
The new collection of mens fake Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Deepblack models is quite impressive. But, there’s more. The new Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M Master Chronometer models in titanium with ceramic bezel and orange rubber inlay are worth exploring.
In this article we take a look at two of the new Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Master Chronometer models. The regular ‘three-hand’ version with caliber 8900 and the chronograph caliber 9900 version.
We cover Omega and their Speedmasters every (Speedy) Tuesday, but hardly anything on the Seamaster Planet Ocean. It is an all-round performer, more versatile than the Speedmaster watches I collect myself. I have an old Seamaster 300M Ti Chronograph Diver from the 1990s that I use as my ‘holiday’ watch and while I love this model, it does show its 1990’s roots. The Planet Ocean is a bit more timeless due to some of the 1957 Seamaster 300 influences, but as I said, I rarely came across one that I really would love to own. Until now, 2016.Somehow, I have never considered a Planet Ocean for my private collection of watches when they first came out. That changed already a bit with the introduction of the caliber 8500 models a few years ago.
Like all Planet Ocean watches, the titanium versions also have the helium escape valve. Whether this is useful to you, heavily depends on the type of diving you do. I guess it makes sense for professional – or commercial – divers who need to stay in a decompression chamber.
Both variations of the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M Titanium have a grade 5 titanium case and a sandblasted titanium dial. The bezel on these watches are grey as well, with a touch of orange. It gives the watch a sporty look. The titanium cases have both polished finish as well as a satin finish. The design of the case is based on those first ‘professional’ watches by Omega from 1957: the Speedmaster, Railmaster and Seamaster 300. It makes the Planet Ocean a recognizable titanium Omega watch replica to be honest.
