Omega’s Seamaster collection is destined to become one of the premier sports watch collections ever designed. Omega has several versions of the Seamaster: the Planet Ocean, Aqua Terra XXL, 300 M GMT, 300 M Chrono Diver, 300 M Chronometer, 300 M Mid Size, and several more. Omega’s recent advertising campaign to promote the Planet Ocean model has made this the watch to have this year. The Planet Ocean is a true dive watch in every sense of the word. It is available in five different dial and strap combinations including black dial/bezel on a brown strap, black dial orange bezel on rubber, black dial/bezel on steel, black dial orange bezel on orange leather strap, and black dial/bezel on rubber.
The Planet Ocean is a certified Chronometer that will keep time down to 600 meters. The crown is set at three o’clock and the hour and second markers feature easy to read oversized arrow pointers. There is an easy to read date window at three o’clock and helium release valve set at ten o’clock. Omega manufactures this watch with their Omega 2500 Caliber movement. The case is stainless steel and features a unidirectional rotating bezel. The case measures 42 mm in diameter.
The Seamaster 300 M is slightly smaller than the Planet Ocean; measuring 41.5 mm. Omega offers several different dial color combinations. The 300 M comes with a blue or black dial. The 300 M GMT has an edgy black dial with a guilloche wave treatment. The Aqua Terra is offered with a clean white dial with dark blue markers and hands. The Chrono version of the Aqua Terra is available in a black, blue, gold on white, gold on black, and silver on white.
