Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Ultra Deep Professional

Post by Racer-X » June 28th 2019, 11:02am

"This year isn’t just the year of the Speedmaster, it’s apparently the year of the Planet Ocean too. Omega has just announced its latest creation, the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Ultra Deep Professional, successfully made the world’s deepest dive, breaking the previous world record set in 1960. The previous record was made with the Rolex Deepsea Special watch, piloted by Captain Don Walsh and Jacques Piccard on board the bathyscaphe Trieste that went to ocean depths of 10,916 meters.

Omega’s expedition is made with Victor Vescovo, a private investor who also has a penchant for adventure. Having scaled all the highest points of the earth, he’s now set himself the task of conquering its deepest, with his self-funded Five Deeps Expedition, which would become the world’s first manned expedition to the deepest point in each of the five oceans."

"Isn't wearable for most." What? 52mm and thicker than a pack of smokes? Sasquatch couldn't pull off wearing this thing without being laughed at by all the woodland creatures.

That being said, from the top looking down, it looks lovely. Fix the lugs, add a bracelet and cut the thickness by over half and knock 12mm off the width and you have a nice watch.
