Planet Ocean Vs. Seamaster 300

Post by Darksider » July 21st 2020, 9:46pm

Since 1948, Omega have been perfecting their formula for conquering the sea. What began as a splash-proof dress watch, quickly spiralled into a race for innovation amongst Switzerland’s finest as to who could plunge the deepest depths and still tell the time.

The Seamaster line is Omega’s crown jewel in technical achievement and design, with mesmerising good-looks intrinsically linked to having the utmost legibility under the waves. 2017 saw a revamped edition of the Seamaster 300, Omega’s famed 1957 release that has become an all-time classic. Last year saw the Planet Ocean Ultra Deep Professional reach a staggering 10,929m underwater, breaking the world record for a wristwatch in the Mariana Trench. Now, the Seamaster 300 Master Co-Axial and the Planet Ocean are engaged in their own battle at the top of Omega’s steel-diver catalogue.

Great article and both great watches...each handsome in its own right. Having tried both on in person, as well as the SM300 with the wave dial, I went with the PO 43.5, the exact model pictured in this article - and I love it. Yes, it's a bit of a chunk, but for a larger diver, it's made comfortable by the bracelet's fully pivoted end links and its relatively constrained lug-to-lug measurement.

I ABHORRED the HEV at first, and then came to realize that it's simply part of Omega's design language and now I don't mind it. I wear suits to work, and although the PO is more of my weekend/leisure/pool watch, the height's never been problematic in terms of shirt cuffs. Bonus - my aging eyes can read this mofo from across the room haha.
