The Seamaster Planet Ocean from Omega delivers exceptional performance and great style, both above water and below. The extra large steel case frames a black dial with luminous hands and markers for excellent visibility, even in low light conditions, a red-tipped luminous seconds hand and seconds indexes, and a date display. The dial is capped with a virtually scratch-proof sapphire crystal and framed by a unidirectional rotating steel bezel, in black, with minute markings and fluted edges for grip. A handsome and durable steel link bracelet completes the look. This Omega watch features self-winding Swiss automatic movement enhanced by Omega's breakthrough co-axial escapement, a technology that ensures high precision and stable accuracy over long periods of use. It is rated water resistant to a full 600 meters (or 2000 feet).
The Omega Story
The Omega watch story begins in 1848, when founder Louis Brandt began hand assembling key-wound precision pocket watches from parts supplied by local craftsmen in his principality La Chaux-de-Fonds, in the northwest corner of Switzerland. However, the Omega name didn't appear until 1894, after Louis Brandt had passed away and his watchmaking traditions were taken over by his sons, Louis-Paul and Cesar Brandt. Omega watches have long been associated with glamorous screen and sports stars--the Omega Seamaster is famous for being the watch of choice for James Bond--with current ambassadors including Pierce Brosnan, Nicole Kidman, tennis player Anna Kournikova, and swimmers Michael Phelps and Ian Thorpe.
But Omega is more than just a fashionable watch. In 1965, the Omega Speedmaster chronograph was "flight-qualified by NASA for all manned space missions" as the only wristwatch to have withstood all of the U.S. space agency's severe tests, including passing grades for extreme shocks, vibrations, and temperatures ranging from -18 to +93 degrees Celsius. The greatest moment in the Speedmaster's history was undoubtedly 20 July 1969 at 02:56 GMT, when it recorded man's first steps on the Moon's surface as part of the Apollo 11 mission. Today, Omega is known for its rigorous testing of new movements, cases, and bands. Each new Omega movement is tested on the wrist in existing Omega models, while various laboratory tests are conducted to determine temperature-resistance, shock-resistance and vibration-resistance.

At 45.5mm, this is an imposing watch on small hands or wrist. Consider the smaller version as an alternative if a heavy watch will make you uncomfortable. Read morePublished on October 11, 2009 by czrem
