Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Chronograph: Malaysia Price And Review

Suit up with Omega's new dive buddy.

Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Chronograph

Omega has a longstanding commitment to saving the world’s oceans, and the Planet Ocean line — launched in 2005 — not only honours this undertaking, but also represents the brand’s relentless quest to elevate its dive watch heritage to the next level with every release.

This year, the spotlight falls on titanium and its integration into a classic Omega underwater timepiece. A cursory glance makes it abundantly clear that the new Seamaster Planet Ocean is one of the most attractive examples of its genre out there today.

The chronograph’s 45.5mm stainless steel case has a burnt orange ceramic bezel ring with a diving scale filled with white liquid ceramic and Super-LumiNova (a new process patent pending). The pushers have also been given a touch of colour thanks to their polished ceramic rings. This striking design certainly ups the fun factor by a couple of notches, while tipping its hat to the hue that’s most often associated with the Planet Ocean line.

The bright case frames a contrasting, matte-grey ceramised titanium dial, which while both tough and light is also appealing for its obvious coolness. This is further accentuated by rhodium-plated hands and indexes coated with Super-LumiNova as well as a splash of orange on the three o’clock sub-dial’s varnished hand, applied number 12 and tip of the central seconds hand.

Keeping it fresh and casual is a five-stripe orange, grey and white polyamide NATO strap with a polished buckle and strap keepers in stainless steel.

The Seamaster Planet Ocean is powered by the Omega Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 9900, which is certified by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS). Visible through the sapphire crystal caseback, it beats at 28,800vph and boasts 60 hours of power reserve.

Diving may allow you to escape to a whole other world, leaving behind the humdrum of everyday life, yet this recreational activity is not without its dangers. Hence, a well-designed, robust watch that’s able to withstand the rigours of the sport remains the top priority when it comes to ensuring you surface safely. The Seamaster Planet Ocean certainly meets the brief — just like previous iterations did — only this time, with a touch of summertime magic.
