Omega Seamaster and Seamaster Planet Ocean replica watches get a fair amount of attention for good reason, and today we are going to look at the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean replica watch in detail.We are serious dive watch guys even though not all of us actually dive. Such is the power of the high-end sport watch and the allure of “desk diving.” Omega has evolved a lot over the last decade but is thankfully strongest where it counts when producing refined tool watches with a lifestyle twist. When the Planet Ocean versions of the classic Seamaster replica watches were originally released in 2005, they were touted as a more durable, high-end range of divers meant to compete with timepieces such as the Rolex Submariner- but without fitting into the same exact mold.
The Omega Planet Ocean replica watches collection has a different approach, being about modern size, style, and options. Omega more-or-less produces the archetype of a modern luxury dive watch, while the competing Submariner focuses more on being the “timeless dive watch.”
Allow me to say that the Omega Planet Ocean replica watch range has always been very difficult to photograph as well as reproduce in marketing images. While the watches look lovely when Omega dolls them up in fancy photography, you really need to see one in the flesh to appreciate it. Omega designed the case, dial, and sapphire crystal to play with light in a particular manner that is simply hard to capture in photography. While the watch is very legible, Omega offers it with a curved crystal and reflective elements on the dial on purpose. It is supposed to offer a “hint of bling” that adds a twist to the otherwise sober refined package. It is an item that literally plays with the light, being an almost flirtatious item on your wrist.
Omega has also really made an Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean replica watches for everyone. In addition to a range of colors and dial styles, there is a three-hand, chronograph, and GMT model available. The Omega replica watch has a third case size in addition to the existing 42 and 45mm wide models. The GMT is 43.5mm wide and in my opinion it is the perfect size for an Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean replica watch.
The Omega Planet Ocean replica watch is the large 45.5 mm Planet Ocean. It is fitted with a matt black ceramic ring dive ring, with the colours of the flag of the Russian Federation: minutes 1 through 5 are lacquered in blue; minutes 6 through 10 are lacquered in red.
I don’t think we have to introduce the Seamaster Planet Ocean replica watch entirely, so I will focus on the particular features of the Omega Planet Ocean replica watch. The applied indexes and the polished, facetted rhodium-plated hands are coated with white Super-LumiNova. All indexes and hands emit blue light, except the minute hand, which emits green light, as does the dot at 12 o’clock on the diving bezel. Omega says this feature makes it easy for divers to keep track of their time at a glance.
The Omega Planet Ocean replica watch has a 45.5 mm brushed and polished stainless steel case and a matching bracelet. Like always, the first 15 minutes are marked with thin stripes on the black ceramic bezel. On these models, the minutes 1 through 5 are lacquered in blue and minutes 6 through 10 are lacquered in red. The caseback of the Omega Planet Ocean replica watch is embossed with the limited edition number. At the 10 o’clock position, in the side of the case, is a helium escape valve.The Omega Planet Ocean replica watch has a depth rating of 600 meters / 60 bar / 2000 feet. The 37.5 mm brushed and polished stainless steel case has a white ceramic unidirectional rotating bezel with a diving scale.
