Called Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black, the collection adds touches of color and gold to a one-piece 45.5-mm case of black zirconium oxide ceramic complemented with similarly black ceramic bezels and dials. Omega Replica Watches has devised a ceramic case for this collection that has been tested for water resistance to 600 meters, or about 2,000 feet, which the firm claims is the first ceramic watch case tested to reach such depths.
The Planet Ocean Deep Black models differ by accent color and one features its bezel, crowns, hands and indices forged from Cheap Replica Watches own 18k Sedna gold. All also boast a new GMT ring that has been fixed to the dial, while each model’s diving scale is built directly into the ceramic bezel using markers and numerals made with Liquidmetal or Ceragold, a proprietary Omega gold-ceramic alloy.
Omega injects red or blue vulcanized rubber directly into the bezels of two models to colorfully mark the 15-minute dive-time indication, as well as to match the hands and the 12, 6, and 9 indication colors on those models. Rubber-injected “He” marks the Helium valve on the red and blue models, while the symbol is in Liquidmetal on the black model.Two Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black models — the Black and the Sedna gold versions — feature ceramic cases and dials polished for a glossy effect. The blue- and red-accented versions feature cases and dials that are matte finished, which Omega says offers better visibility underwater. For the gold model, Omega uses its 18k Sedna gold to accent the hands and indices; the three other Omega Replica Deep Black dials feature hands and indices of 18k white gold. All are coated in white Super-LumiNova that emits green and blue colors.
You’ll recall that Omega announced the Master Chronometer certification last year, explaining that each Master Chronometer watch will be certified as having passed eight tests set by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology. The tests are said to replicate or exceed real-life wearing conditions highlighted by the enhanced resistance to magnetic fields. This standard, first offered with the new Omega Globemaster late last year, is meant to verify the watch’s precision and performance and is added to the COSC certification Omega Replica Watches already extends to these watches. Omega also adds a four-year warranty to this expanded certification.
A look at the caseback of these new Deep Black models reveals more than a clear view of that Caliber 8906, which features a silicon balance spring, Omega’s proprietary Co-Axial escapement and a 60-hour power reserve. Developing a new ceramic case for dive models necessitated new technology, specifically a patented ceramic Naiad Lock, to ensure a water-resistant caseback for a material rarely used to case dive watches. With the caseback thus locked tight, Omega added another aesthetic touch to the Cheap Omega Replica Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black design by orienting the caseback so that the engraved wording always sits perfectly in position, with “Deep Black” at the top of the caseback and “Planet Ocean” below.
Aeschlimann added in a statement that the new Deep Black collection “takes everything we’ve learned and developed over the years and combines these advancements into a truly striking collection of timepieces. It is a momentous occasion for Omega to be here in New York and to share these watches for the first time.”
