Omega made a splash with the Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Omega Replica three years ago, a variant of the Moon Watch made entirely of black ceramic. Now offered in white and all the colours in between, the ceramic case of the Speedmaster was merely the start.
Available in four variants – with the top the line being the black ceramic and 18k Sedna red gold – the Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black features all of Omega’s latest case technology. The 45.5mm Omega Replica ceramic case has a black ceramic metal insert with markings in Liquidmetal, a specialised amorphous metal alloy. On the red and blue versions of the Deep Black, the bezel also has coloured rubber inlays to mark the first 15 minutes.
The dial is black ceramic, mirror polished on the black and gold versions, but matte on the blue and red models. But regardless of the variant, the hands and hour markers are 18k white gold. The Cheap Omega Replica second time zone hand is tipped with an orange arrow, with the 24-hour second time zone scale on the inner flange of the dial.
The case back is also ceramic, and unusually for the material, the back screws in the case. Thanks to what Omega Replica Watches terms Naiad Lock, the back sits perfectly aligned with the case.
The strap is rubber, moulded to resemble fabric on the front, and attached to a black ceramic coating folding clasp.
