Seamaster Planet Ocean Ultra Deep
In 2019, Omega sent its Planet Ocean Ultra Deep watch to the bottom of the ocean. While it was strapped onto a submarine, the watch returned safely from a deep dive of 10,928 meters. Now, this exotic timepiece is available to civilians. Crafted in Titanium or the super strong O-MEGASTEEL, this watch is different from the 2019 seafarer. It is approximately 10 mm smaller in diameter & thickness i.e. 45.5 mm & 18.12 mm respectively. You can go underwater to 6000 meters with this masterpiece. Certified with ISO 6425, the Ultra Deep watch doesn’t require a helium escape valve. Much of it is the result of patent pending technologies i.e. two piece case back, crystal gasket, crown & crystal. It’s bracelets come with clasps, push button micro adjust, & a 2.3 mm extension
The Titanium timepieces are compatible with NATO straps & they are made from purely recycled materials. On the other hand the O-MEGASTEEL is an engineered alloy that is 50 percent stronger than 316L steel. It is whiter & shinier than Titanium.

The Seamaster Diver 300 has glorified the wrist of 007 onscreen. The legacy watch for divers since 1993 returns with the new 42mm deep green dial. It’s best features include the exclusive waved dial, a diving bezel, & a helium escape valve. Adorned with the best laser engravings, the Seamaster Diver 300 can be worn with a metal bracelet in formal settings, or take on a NATO strap or a rubber bracelet to slip into shadowy waters.
