Omega Updates Its Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M for 2020
Standing at the top of its diving range.
Swiss luxury watchmaker Omega has updated its Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M for 2020, enhancing the already top-of-the-range diver for professional use.
Opting for a more subtle use of orange compared to its 2019 counterpart, the new timepiece features a blacked-out dial and corresponding ceramic dive bezel insert complemented by orange accents, such as the “Seamaster” and “600m/2000ft” inscriptions, the tip of the seconds hand, and the Arabic numeral indices at 6, 9 and 12 o’clock. A date window sits neatly at 3 o’clock, working together with the other lumed indices to provide ample legibility. The stainless steel case itself measures in at a larger 43.5mm size standard for deep-sea divers, featuring a signed screw-down crown at 3 o’clock and a helium escape valve at 10. Powering the watch is an in-house Master Chronometer automatic Calibre Omega 8900 with Co-Axial escapement, carrying a power reserve of 60 hours and resistant to magnetic fields reaching up to 15,000 gauss. The watch is then sandwiched between a domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating as well as a transparent caseback, nonetheless offering a staggering 600m of water resistance. Completing the look is a stainless steel bracelet or orange and black striped NATO.
For those interested, the 2020 Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M is now available over on the company’s website, retailing for $6,550 USD. Head over to learn more now.
