New Omega watch look like most of the other models Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m, with the same body style, hands and dial, and diving features. However, the name of the watch says about 3 new items: Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m / Master Chronometer 39.5mm / Sedna Gold. Namely, a new clock mechanism (a first Planet Ocean collection), the new, smaller size, and finally, the new material.
Contrary to the visual similarity with its “sisters” from the collection, the clock Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m Master Chronometer 39.5mm Sedna Gold radically change everything: a new clock mechanism, new dimensions, new face, new materials and even a new strap. The first thing to note the introduction of a new series of movements Omega Master Chronometer. The new product differs Caliber 8801 (visibility through the back of the case) with the same structure as the 8500 (coaxial trigger, double drum and automatic plant), but now with significant properties (resistance to 15 000 Gauss).
The diameter of the new model of Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m Master Chronometer 39.5mm Sedna Gold is 39.5 mm. The timepiece is quite large for a female model and are rather moderate male model for those who are in need of elegant business class watch. Omega has not only increased the size of the female version (or, conversely, decreased for men), but also redesigned the housing to make it more subtle.
Recent changes relate to materials. The case is made of gold Sedna, own alloy rose gold Omega, more scratch-resistant and no discoloration over time. This special pink gold used in the creation of housing, fastening the rear of the chassis, as well as the hands and indexes. The bezel is made of Ceragold – brown ceramics filled with liquid to create a rose gold numbers and scales. Another change is the dial brown (for the first time for Omega), made of ceramics (as Zr02 reads the inscription on the dial). New straps combine rubber and alligator skin, when in previous models are made only on the classic alligator.
Regarding the rest of the clock Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m Master Chronometer 39.5mm Sedna Gold remains true to the collection, with water resistance to 600 meters, helium valve in the 10 o’clock position, the large arrows and indices coated with luminescent material. The cost of the timepiece is about 18 800 EUR.
Each watch brand has its own history. But not every brand makes it so huge and worldchanging as did the Omega. The history of Omega brand is rich in a variety of achievements in the field of watchmaking, which sometimes literally shook the world.
The most famous chronograph caliber 861, which since 1968 provides the watch Omega Speedmaster Professional. It is the only watch that visited (and perfectly functioning!) the Moon. They have been the greatest in the history of watchmaking number of tests. Composed of more than 125 parts, the assembly process includes more than 1000 operations. Most Omega mechanisms sent in C.O.S.C., the prestigious Swiss chronometer testing institute, which after a 16-day test on five parameters at three different temperatures awards them high precision sheet – an official certificate chronometer. This is true for 1,200 new mechanisms Omega, whose bridges and pendulums are designed to reproduce the traditional mechanisms of brand. The final processing machinery parts and is an example of the know-how, worthy of the best manufacturers of Swiss watches.
