As of now, the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m replica watch was available in 4 sizes: one edition dedicated to men with a 45.5mm case, one for the GMT editions at 43.5mm, one more “unisex” edition at 42mm and one edition dedicated to ladies at 37.5mm. Then, in terms of materials, the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m replica watch was mainly available in stainless steel but also in titanium, in platinum.
Even if visually extremely close to its sisters of the collection, the Omega Planet Ocean 600m Replica Master Chronometer 39.5mm Sedna Gold changes everything in the details: new movement, new dimensions, new dial, new materials and even new strap. Same same but better… First thing to note is the introduction of the new series of movements by Omega, the Master Chronometer (introduced in the Globemaster and coming with the METAS certification, explained in details here and here), that is used for the first time in the Seamaster Planet Ocean collection. This new edition features the Calibre 8801 (visible thought the caseback) with the same architecture as the 8500 (Co-Axial escapement, double barrel and automatic winding) but now with highly antimagnetic properties (as resistant to 15,000 Gauss). It seems that for the coming years, Omega will implement the Master Chronometer movements in the entire range of watches – and they have already started in the Speedmaster collection, with the new antimagnetic chronograph with moon-phase.
Then, not only the movement is new but so is the size of the case. The new Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m Master Chronometer 39.5mm Sedna Gold replica watch takes place right in-between the 42mm and the 37.5mm . At 39.5mm, Omega says this edition to be a ladies’ watch but we have to disagree. It could easily be seen as a large feminine watch but also as a more restrained men’s watch, for those in need of something dressier, more understated – or simply for those with smaller wrists, as the 42mm is already quite a large, thick and heavy watch. The last update concerning the case is that not only has Omega increased the size of the ladies model but also reworked it “for a slightly thinner case”.
This is the first time that Sedna Gold has been used for the Omega Planet Ocean replica watches. The material has also been used for hands and indexes, as well as the foldover clasp.The warm tone of the red gold is beautifully complemented by the fascinating brown colour - evocative of chocolate - used for the ceramic bezel and dial of the Omega Planet Ocean 600m replica watch.
The numbers and new minute markers of the diving scale on the bezel of the Omega Planet Ocean 600m replica watch has been obtained using the Ceragold technology, process that enables the incrustation of 18K gold into zirconium-based ceramic bezels, resulting in a blended material that is absolutely smooth to the touch.
As the name of the new modelsuggests, the model has been updated as a Master Chronometer, the new standard of certification adopted by Omega. For women, this is among the first ladies’ timepieces to attain the METAS-approved rating.Slightly thinner than previous models, the new Omega Planet Ocean 600M replica watch is matched to a brown leather strap with a rubber underside.
