A New Look for Omega’s Deepest-Diving Watches

Omega relaunches its deep-sea collection, featuring its two deepest-diving watches, the Planet Ocean 600M and Seamaster Planet Ocean 6000M Ultra Deep. The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M is a dive watch measuring 39.5 mm by 14.2 mm, featuring a solid case back with the new Poseidon motif, a ceramic bezel, and HELIUM escape valve. While the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 6000M Ultra Deep measures 45.5 mm by 18.1 mm, with a ceramic bezel and a “flowing” enamel gradient blue dial.

Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M – A Solid Investment of $7,400

Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M is an overbuilt dive watch priced at $7,400 that features a co-axial master-chronometer caliber 8900 movement, allowing a 55-hour power reserve. Its dark and powder blue colors on the white ceramic bezel along with a blue PVD coated ceramic dial that is brushed to form a gradient catches one’s eye. Although the METAS-approved movement offers resistance to magnetic fields reaching up to 15,000 gauss, the large three-dimensional Arabic numeral hour markers and vertical brushed pattern make this watch stand out. However, Omega could have done without the “ZrO2” on the dial, which refers to the zirconium oxide PVD-coated and brushed dial treatment.

Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 6000M Ultra Deep – An Investment for Passionate Divers

The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 6000M Ultra Deep priced at $13,000 is an intense tool watch that includes an engraved case-back with gradient blue enamel coating and HELIUM escape valve. The dial is an “accurate representation of the bottom of the Challenger Deep,” which was mapped by the Five Deeps team using nearly a million sonar points. Additionally, when you shine a UV light on it, hidden text appears, which reads “Omega was here,” signifying the world record of dive at 10,935 meters.

Closing Thoughts

Overall, the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep-Sea Collection continues to deliver solid and reliable features along with vibrant designs. Despite the price tags being in the high range for each model, the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M’s AR coating on top of crystal, along with its Co-axial Master-Chronometer Caliber 8900 movement, make it a solid investment under $10,000. On the other hand, Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 6000M Ultra Deep is for passionate divers that don’t mind paying for new diving technology used in the watch.
