Luxury sport automatics are the hottest segment in the watch industry, and Omega has been a leader of the segment since their founding by Louis Brandt in 1848 in La Chaux-de-Fonds. So when Omega announced the release of the Seamaster Plant Ocean – a brand new entry in this ultra-competitive sport watch segment at the 2005 Basel World watch show, the entire industry stood up and took notice.
The Seamaster Planet Ocean is the first significant redesign of the Seamaster since the introduction of Omega Seamaster Professional in 1993. The Planet Ocean is offered in two different size variations – one in 42mm, and one if 45.5mm, and is available with either a strap or bracelet. The Planet Ocean was the first diver Omega outfitted with their calibre 2500 movement that featured a co-axial escapement, and it came in three variations when it was launched.
There was nothing completely new about the calibre 2500 movement when the Planet Ocean launched in 2005, though the movement had slowly been refined since 1999 when Omega purchased the co-axial technology from the legendary George Daniels. The link with James Bond is front and centre for modern Planet Ocean watches, with every James Bond since Golden Eye featuring the famous Omega creation.
This particular piece is from 2009 with water resistance up to 600m. Enquire for more information.
