OMEGA Seamaster Planet Ocean Ultra Deep: Diver’s Watch With Record-breaking Water Resistance

OMEGA-Seamaster-Planet-Ocean-Ultra-Deep-Cover-comparison-overview-5-models

OMEGA is presenting the Seamaster Planet Ocean Ultra Deep, a diver’s watch with exceptional water resistance of up to 6,000 metres. In fact, the new line is based on a prototype that survived the record depth of 10,934 metres unscathed in 2019. The civilian models now unveiled come in seven variants, six of which feature a case with a new stainless steel alloy. The titanium edition resembles the research model the most and comes with fixed lugs similar to those found on the Tudor Pelagos FXD.

The Case of The Seamaster Planet Ocean Ultra Deep

OMEGA is presenting a total of seven different variants, six of which are made of a new in-house stainless steel alloy called O-MEGASTEEL. In addition to being up to 50% harder and also brighter in colour, the material is said to offer optimised corrosion resistance. In addition, an Ultra Deep in titanium is unveiled. Yet all the new diving watches have the same case diameter of 45.5 mm. To withstand the pressure at a depth of 6000 metres (600 bar), the new diver’s watch also measures 18.12 mm in height.

The watch made of titanium has so-called “Manta lugs” to which the NATO strap attaches. These solid lugs have a gap through which the strap runs. The other watches use regular lugs and spring bars instead. The titanium version also features an asymmetrical case reminiscent of the first Ultra Deep. It also bears a brushed ceramic bezel with a diving scale made of Liquidmetal. The other six versions, on the other hand, have a symmetrical case and a shiny ceramic bezel.

Meanwhile, a domed EFG sapphire crystal protects the front. The back of all Seamaster Planet Ocean Ultra Deep watches have a solid titanium case back bearing a sonar emblem and the OMEGA seahorse. The words “Diver’s watch 6000 m for saturation diving” also indicate the exceptional water resistance of the watch.

The Dials

The titanium version is made of black, ceramicised titanium and has cyan blue numerals and a blued seconds hand with a colour gradient. With a steel case, there are three dials to choose from. First, a gradient from blue to black. This dial combines white indices and numerals with a black bezel. Secondly, there is a gradient from grey to black, which comes with orange lacquered numerals. The bezel also appears in orange. Finally, there is a white dial with blue numerals, which is paired with a blue bezel.

Both the indices and the hands of all Seamaster Planet Ocean Ultra Deep models are luminescent. With the exception of the minute hand and the luminous dot on the bezel, which glow green, the elements appear blue. Both the hands and the indices are made of 18K white gold. The lacquered dials also feature a colour-matched model designation and a reference to the water resistance.

An Anti-magnetic Co-Axial Movement Powers The Watch

Behind the solid case back lies the OMEGA Calibre 8912, which integrates a Co-Axial escapement with silicon parts that provide resistance to magnetic fields. In addition, the movement offers automatic winding with a power autonomy of 60 hours. Meanwhile, The time zone function allows the hour hand to move independently of the minutes hand. Last but not least, the METAS certificate guarantees respective accuracy. The independent institute also tests the water resistance according to the standard ISO 6425, thereby validating the manufacture’s claims.

The Straps: NATO, Rubber And Steel

The titanium version of the Seamaster Planet Ocean Ultra Deep has a striped NATO strap in cyan blue and black. The material polyamide yarn comes from 100% recycled fishing nets. The buckle is of titanium. Due to the special fixed lugs, the watch is only compatible with fabric straps. The steel models, on the other hand, are available with either a steel or rubber strap. The bracelet made of O-MEGASTEEL offers a folding clasp with a stepless extension and an additional diver’s extension. The rubber strap, on the other hand, appears with a diving suit structure on the surface and a buckle made of O-MEGASTEEL.

Price & Availability of The OMEGA Seamaster Planet Ocean Ultra Deep

Those interested in the OMEGA Seamaster Planet Ocean Ultra Deep will have to be patient, as the pieces are not yet available. Instead, OMEGA is offering a waiting list. However, the prices are already known. The steel models cost 11,700 euros on the rubber strap and 12,000 euros on the bracelet. The special titanium variant costs 12,800 euros and is only available with a NATO strap.
