Buy Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600 M watches new, vintage and used with certificate
The history of the Planet Ocean 600 M
For the first time, the Planet Ocean 600 M was launched in 2005 as part of the Seamaster collection. It is not only a tribute to the sea and water sports, but 600m waterproof a diver's watch of superlatives. It was available in different variations with and without chronograph function and different calibers. These models also had their first appearances in the James Bond films "Casino Royale" and "A Quantum of Solace."
In 2011, the series received a visual and technical revision: the bezel has since been made of ceramic; Another eye-catching innovation is the transparent caseback, which provides insights into the movement of the watch. The predecessor models were available in 38 mm, 42 mm, and 45.5 mm, plus a 43.5 mm version was added. The movement has been replaced by more powerful calibers, e.g. the caliber 8500 for the model without chronograph function.
In 2016, the next revision followed. The new Planet Ocean 600 M is designed as an exclusive wristwatch for the professional sector and offers top performance paired with elegant sporty design. Visually it takes over elements of the first Seamaster from the year 1957, but is equipped with Omega's co-axial escapement technically. The technical sophisticated movement has been tested by METAS and certified as a “Master Chronograph”. It is available in stainless steel or 18 carat sedna gold. Another change is the imprinted minute ring, as well as the alveolar grain of the movement, which can be seen through the transparent case back.
Features of the Omega Planet Ocean 600 M
In addition to the one way rotatable ceramic bezel, the helium valve at 10 o'clock is a striking visual feature of the powerful diver's watch. The dial and bezel of the current collection are mostly ocean blue, but they are also available in white and black. Even hour and minute hands in the iconic arrow shape are special eye-catcher. In order to guarantee the best readability even in low light conditions, the watch is provided with blue luminous indices. The orientation point at 12 o'clock and the minute hand, on the other hand, contrast in color with a green glow. Another visual highlight is the transparent caseback, through which one can see the running movement. Another innovation is the Arabic numerals at 6, 9 and 12 o'clock. At 3 o'clock you´ll find the window for the date display.
