This Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Platinum Orange Ceramic (ref. 18.104.22.168.99.001) looks like an extremely expensive crossover between their flashy Seamaster Planet Ocean chronograph that the brand has introduced almost three years ago and a tad fresher Co-Axial GMT model. From the latter, it gets basic design and the Cal. 8615 automatic movement, and the former supplied this beautiful artifact with its ostentatious orange-and-polished-metal color scheme. The expensive part is delivered courtesy of mirror-polished and sand-blasted platinum, lots of it.
ML has updated its “active lifestyle” Pontos family with a couple of new versions. Besides the sporty Pontos S Extreme and Pontos Chronographe that are similar in styling to the last year’s Pontos S Diving Chronograph, the Swiss watchmaker has also revealed a professional-grade Maurice Lacroix Pontos S Diver. Rated for water resistance of impressive 600 meters, it is claimed to be designed to professional specifications, but, for some unknown reason, is supplied on a not particularly practical leather strap.
It looks, just like it is with their new Graham Chronofighter Prodive Professional diver, the British-based brand has finally found a good use for its (in)famous trigger-style chronograph push-piece. Capable of starting, stopping and resetting the chronograph even deep underwater, the trigger looks like an ideal choice for a watch, which is supposed to be operated by gloved hands. I mean, just imagine how comfortable it could be to operate the time measuring complication in situations where you just don’t have time to feel a small, traditionally shaped pusher whether it is located somewhere on the piece’s back or even on the winding crown itself!
Last May Omega has presented its refreshed Planet Ocean collection. Besides a gorgeous (but too posh) Liquidmetal model and a couple of watches designed for ladies, there was presented a sweet pair of practical and robust-looking Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean chronographs (ref. 22.214.171.124.01.002 & ref. 126.96.36.199.01.001).
Right after presenting its limited-edition SUB 5000T Seaconqueror model, DOXA reveals its vintage-inspired 2008 SUB 600T-Graph collection. Looking mean and cool, the gadget boasts a water-resistance rating of 600 meters and is legible enough to give you all the necessary information at a single glance.
