There’s a diver’s watch that can go deep, then there’s an Omega
diver’s watch that can go even deeper. Omega Planet Ocean Deep Black has just been unveiled in Asia, featuring an entirely ceramic material, the first of its kind. Ceramic is harder, lighter, and more scratch-resistant than traditional watch materials. The Asia launching was remarkable since Omega didn’t reveal the diver’s watch in Baselworld
, the biggest watch event in the world. The company seems to send a signal that Asia—particularly China—presents the future of Omega sales. Back to the watch, the model can go deep as far down to 600 meters. That’s almost twice as the standard diver’s watch. The watch houses the Omega Master Chronometer Calibre
8906, a 60-hour power reserve, and a silicon balance ring, among others, that make this watch truly indestructible.
Omega is available at at Schiffman's at Friendly Center and in Winston-Salem.
