These four remarkable timepieces represent the next step in the evolution of ceramic watchmaking which began with the Dark Side of the Moon. By combining a GMT model with a diving watch, OMEGA has created a stand-alone collection of “Deep Black” watches that are truly state-of-the-art.
The collection includes four models – all black, with red accents, blue accents and a very handsome model with Sedna gold accents.
The term “deep black” is not a shallow boast. These are serious divers’ watches, able to withstand the pressures of the ocean at 60 bar (600 m) and packed with crucial tech for exploring beneath the waves.
At the heart of all four “Deep Black” watches is the OMEGA Master Chronometer calibre 8906. Resistant to magnetic fields of 15,000 gauss, the movement has been tested at the industry’s highest level, passing all 8 tests set by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS).
In a first for Planet Ocean, a single block of black ceramic forms the case body of each watch. On the Black and 18K Sedna gold models, the ceramic cases and dials have been polished for a glossy effect. The blue and red versions are brushed for a matt effect that offers better visibility underwater. The unidirectional bezels are also made of black ceramic.
Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean “Deep Black” timepieces cost EUR 10,400 for the Black, Blue and Red models, while the Sedna Gold model will set you back exactly EUR 13,900.
