Omega announced a few days ago a world premiere with the Seamaster Planet Ocean Orange Ceramic and its new bi-directional 24-hour GMT rotating bezel whose polished ring is made from orange ceramic (patent pending). This is not the first time we see a Planet Ocean with orange colours all over, in fact I am not a huge fan of the previous models with orange, but this piece has the perfect balance of orange colour. You are maybe asking yourself “What is so special with a ceramic bezel in orange?” Due the complex process to get ceramic in colour this is a big thing in the world of watches. Omega has showed the way before: first dive watch (Marine 1932), first watch on the moon (1969), first co-axial escapement (1999), first Liquidmetal (2009), and first orange ceramic (2014).

The case size maintains a diameter of 43.50 mm and offers water resistance to 600 metres / 2000 feet. For this limited edition model of just 8 pieces, Omega chose platinum for the case with brushed and polished finishing. The ceramic bezel has 850-grade platinum Liquidmetal numerals, division lines, inner ring and downward triangle. The dial is also made of sand-blasted 950-grade platinum with 18k white gold indexes, hands, and the orange elements are made of aluminium.

The watch is powered by the Omega Co-Axial calibre 8615 automatic movement which comes equipped with a Si14 silicon balance spring. The see-through caseback is engraved with “World Premiere” along with the limited edition number.

The watch comes on a matching orange leather strap with platinum stitching and a platinum foldover clasp. An orange rubber strap is also delivered with it along with a special tool to change it.

Omega has always had a special place in my heart thanks to their watches that carries distinctive design and strong character.

Price: CHF 59,000.- Swiss Francs (excl. VAT)
