Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Master Chronometer Collection: Seamaster Planet Ocean 45.5mm Chronograph, Seamaster Planet Ocean 43.5mm Auto & Seamaster Planet Ocean 43.50mm GMT

This year bring some impressive updates to the Seamaster Planet Ocean Collection. For the first time, all Planet Ocean watches have become Master Chronometers. This means they have all passed rigorous new testing standards set down by the independent Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS). In addition, in new models, we can find new sizes, thinner cases, innovative bezels, fresh designs and exciting materials, including 18K Sedna™ gold, Liquidmetal®, rubber and ceramic.

Seamaster Planet Ocean 45.5mm Chronograph
The Seamaster Planet Ocean 45.5mm Chronograph features an 18K Sedna™ gold and steel case and polished blue ceramic dial to create a watch that truly dazzles. It also includes a bi-colour bracelet in stainless steel with a stripe of 18K Sedna™ gold.
The deep blue of the ceramic dial and bezel is offset beautifully by the OMEGA Ceragold™ numbers and diving scale.
The Seamaster Planet Ocean 45.5mm Chronograph also has a unique alveol design on the screw-in caseback. The OMEGA Master Chronometer 9900 movement powers this timepiece.

Seamaster Planet Ocean 43.5mm Auto

The striking uni-directional rotating diving bezel on the Seamaster Planet Ocean 43.5mm Auto is a true innovation as well as a world premiere. For the first time, rubber has been blended with ceramic, with orange rubber covering the first 15 minutes. Liquidmetal® numbers and scales have then been used to stand out boldly for the diving and minute scales.
The black ceramic dial includes new applied Arabic numerals, and if you turn the watch over, a stunning alveol pattern on the caseback creates a special wave effect.
Completing the look of the stainless steel watch is the black leather strap with a black and orange rubber underside. The Master Chronometer 8900 movement powers this timepiece.

This timepiece features another first for Planet Ocean: the world's premiere polished bi-ceramic [ZrO2] black and white bezel ring. On the stainless steel case, the bi-directional rotating bezel separates night from day, with numerals and scaling in contrasting colours.
If the colour of night wins out on the black ceramic dial, the numbers and scales shine through. Further brightness is provided by the dot at 12 o'clock in white Super-LumiNova.
The black leather strap with rubber lining is held fast with a foldover clasp in stainless steel. The Seamaster Planet Ocean 43.50mm GMT houses a revolutionary movement: the Master Chronometer 8906.
