OMEGA‘s Seamaster collection has always been a testament to revolutionary technology and a commitment to pushing boundaries. The latest addition to this prestigious line, the Seamaster Planet Ocean Dark Grey, takes innovation to new heights by incorporating silicon nitride ceramic on an unprecedented scale. This bold timepiece not only marks a milestone for OMEGA but also promises a new era of adventure-ready, lightweight, and robust watches.
For the first time in watchmaking history, OMEGA has embraced silicon nitride ceramic [Si3N4] on a large scale, elevating the Seamaster Planet Ocean Dark Grey to new heights. This cutting-edge material is employed in the 45.5 mm casebody, patented NAIAD LOCK caseback, and bezel ring. The use of silicon nitride not only ensures exceptional toughness but also keeps the overall weight of the watch down. This lightweight characteristic adds an extra level of comfort for wearers, making it an ideal companion for serious explorations.
The dark grey hue of the silicon nitride ceramic lends a distinctive and rugged aesthetic to the timepiece. The use of Grade 5 titanium for the bezel body, strap folding clasp, and the sand-blasted dial with anthracite hands and indexes adds a contrasting touch. This specific grade of titanium, favored by the aerospace industry, enhances the watch’s durability without compromising on weight, aligning perfectly with the Seamaster’s reputation for robustness.
Continuing the theme of darkness, the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8906 takes center stage. Encased in Grade 5 Titanium, this ultra-light movement boasts a GMT function, ensuring a sublime level of precision and performance. The movement is showcased behind a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides, allowing enthusiasts to admire the intricate craftsmanship. With water resistance up to 600 meters, the watch upholds the Seamaster’s legacy of impressive ocean technology.
