Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m Master Chronometer“Chocolate”

Featuring luscious brown colour as a nod to Switzerland’s chocolate manufacturing tradition , the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m Master Chronometer “Chocolate” is among the first ladies’ timepieces to attain the impressive rating approved by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS).

Certified as a Master Chronometer, the industry’s highest standard of certification, this sensual timepiece houses the new calibre 8801 which is visible through the sapphire crystal caseback, complete with an oscillating weight crafted from 18K Sedna™ gold.
This is, in fact, the first time that 18K Sedna™ gold has been used for the Planet Ocean collection. The material has also been used for the case, hands and indexes, as well as the foldover clasp on the strap.

And to perfectly complement the soft reddish tone of the metal, OMEGA has created both the dial and bezel from chocolate brown ceramic. The colour is both rich and appealing, bringing yet another dimension to the Planet Ocean collection. On the bezel itself, OMEGA Ceragold™ technology has been used to create the numbers and new minute markers of the diving scale.
At 39.5 mm, this model is wider than some previous models, but has allowed for a slightly thinner case. Another aesthetic update can be found on the caseback, where a new undulating pattern offers a subtle yet captivating change.
The Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m Master Chronometer“Chocolate” watch is presented on a brown leather strap with a rubber underside for a sporty and comfortable combination.
