This Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Platinum Orange Ceramic (ref. 188.8.131.52.99.001) 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.
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the legendary franchise, the Swiss watchmaker has released its new Omega Seamaster 300M James Bond 007 50th Anniversary Collector’s Piece diver. Sporting numerous references to the immortal franchise, the device may be of great interest to the huge crowd of fans. As one might have expected, the new timepiece was presented by Mr. Daniel Craig himself.
In 1948, when London happened to host its first Olympic Games, the Swiss watchmaker has also presented its very first Omega Seamaster hand-wound timekeeper. Now, 63 years later, as the British capital is making the final preparations to host the 2012 Olympic Games, Omega reintroduces the model as the Omega Seamaster 1948 Co-Axial “London 2012” Limited Edition Automatic.
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. 184.108.40.206.01.002 & ref. 220.127.116.11.01.001).
While the 2008 year Five-Counter Speedmaster Chinese Olympic Games featured a daring five-compax dial layout, the 2011 Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 44 London Chronograph sports a more subdued, traditional design with only three sub-dials.
The 2010 Seamaster Aqua Terra XXL Small Seconds is inspired by Omega’s pocket timepieces from the 1930s. Presented at the SIHH 2010, it was issued as a limited edition of just 176 pieces: half of them in white gold and the other half in 18-karat rose gold. Equipped with a Unitas-based pocket watch caliber, the timekeeper boasts an extra-large body almost 50 whopping millimeters in diameter!
