OMEGA, renowned for its legacy of technical innovation, has once again pushed the boundaries of watchmaking with its latest release, the Planet Ocean Dark Grey. This remarkable timepiece is a showcase of OMEGA’s pioneering spirit, marking the brand’s first extensive application of silicon nitride ceramic [Si3N4] in a watch. The result is an adventure-ready watch that combines exceptional toughness with a surprisingly lightweight.
The use of silicon nitride ceramic is a game-changer in the world of luxury timepieces. Known for its lightness, this innovative material provides wearers with an unprecedented level of comfort on the wrist. Simultaneously, its robust properties ensure the watch is more than capable of withstanding the rigours of serious exploration. The design cleverly incorporates this dark grey material in the 45.5 mm case body, the patented NAIAD LOCK caseback, and the bezel ring, creating a watch that’s as sturdy as it is striking.
OMEGA hasn’t stopped there. In a masterful contrast of materials, the watch features Grade 5 titanium for the bezel body, strap folding clasp, and the sand-blasted dial adorned with anthracite hands and indexes. This particular grade of titanium, commonly used in the aerospace industry, enhances the watch’s robust integrity while maintaining a light profile.
The aesthetic of the watch extends to its movement, embracing a sleek, dark look. The OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8906, crafted in Grade 5 Titanium, is an exemplar of lightness and precision. With a GMT function, it guarantees a level of accuracy and performance that is truly sublime. This advanced movement is visible through a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides, adding to the watch’s luxurious appeal.
True to its Seamaster heritage, the Planet Ocean Dark Grey is water-resistant up to 600 meters, a testament to OMEGA’s commitment to exceptional ocean technology. This timepiece is a fusion of advanced material science and OMEGA’s dedication to creating watches that are both technically superior and aesthetically pleasing.
The OMEGA’s Planet Ocean Dark Grey is retailing at SGD 32,000.00.
