In this article, we shall go over all the essentials of what you need to know about the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 43.5mm.
Omega is a watch company that has been around since 1848, giving the brand nowadays a very rich history. With over 170 years’ experience in watchmaking, you can expect that they have learnt and mastered the art of watchmaking. Alongside the history of the company, they have been making and selling the Seamaster since 1948. In 2005, they released the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean, creating a new line of the model Seamaster. Eleven years later, in 2016, when the Planet Ocean was most recently updated, Omega announced that the Planet Ocean series would be the first Seamaster’s to be certified as Master Chronometers. This watch was made for collectors, avid timepiece lovers and adventurous individuals. Alongside the elegant style of this watch, the capabilities are what sets this model apart from the other Seamaster professional models such as the SMP 300 and the Aqua Terra.
This gives you the confidence to wear your Planet Ocean whenever and wherever, and whilst most would say that these dive watches are never really going to be worn for their purpose, it is still nice to know it can do it. Not to mention, if you are into diving, even at shallow depths, it is never a bad thing to have a watch that is more than capable of handling the depth, so you’ll never have to worry about it. The movement's resistance to magnetism is especially handy in airports where your watch passes through security as it can sometimes happen that a watch starts to lose time due to its exposure to the magnetic field in the airport security section. However, this is of no concern to the Planet Ocean!
