In 2005 Omega established its Planet Ocean series, another collection of dive watches, positioned above the Seamaster Professional collection (the James Bond watch) and it’s been a massive success since day one. We are planning to review that the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m GMT Goodplanet for you now.
The Seamaster Planet Ocean GMT, or brief PO-GMT, is offered in the known colour codes of the Planet Ocean, using a black dial and silver/white markers and handson. Just the tip of the GMT hand along with the word GMT on the dial are in orange. There’s also a particular version with a navy blue dial and bezel that’s created as a tribute to the partnership between Omega seamaster planet ocean goodplanet gmt replica watch review and the GoodPlanet Foundation. And that is the version that we are taking a look at today. We got the version on the (very comfortable) blue rubber strap with single folding clasp and enjoyed wearing it. But let’s first start with a very small bit of background…
Omega’s Seamaster models have a very long history and through the years we’ve seen quite a few variants. The first version that was introduced in 1948 appeared like exactly what we would describe today as a dress watch and it wasn’t until 1957 when the Seamaster captured the looks of what we now-a-days look like a dive watch. The Seamaster 300 reference 2913 is now a collectable piece and this season Omega seamaster planet ocean 600m goodplanet gmt fake watches introduced a good looking re-issue of it (see here).
Though Omega says the Seamaster 300 was the first at the’Professional’ lineup, the in 1988 launched Seamaster 200m is the very first Seamaster using the word’Professional’ printed on the dial. It was the third variant with’Professional’ on the dialup, found in 1993 and unofficially referred to as the’James Bond’ variant, that offered the Seamaster Professional its huge popularity among a much bigger audience. Afterwards Omega seamaster planet ocean 600m gmt 43.5mm goodplanet replica watch included a Seamaster Professional 300m GMT to the collection, and earlier this year our contributor Mario wrote about his experience of sporting the newer Seamaster Professional Co-Axial 300m GMT for an entire year.
The plan of the in 2005 introduced Seamaster Planet Ocean recalls that of the first Seamaster 300 meter models which were found in 1957. Since 2013 there is eventually a GMT version of this Seamaster PO, and it is outfitted with Omega’s in-house calibre 8605 with GMT time zone work. In our review of this Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M Chrono we already concluded the Rolex Sea-Dweller Deepsea got some serious competition. Now we’re interested to determine whether the Rolex GMT-Master II also receives a true competitor for this Omega seamaster planet ocean gmt titanium goodplanet clone Seamaster PO GMT.
Sporty, robust, contemporary, practical, stylish, tasteful. Just a couple words to describe the new Seamaster PO GMT I heard from individuals when asked to capture the opinion in a word (or 2 ). I also feel that all these words are applicable and perhaps some more words, such as for example’comfortable’. While the other words to describe the Seamaster PO GMT were determined by the circumstance, it had been comfortable in most situations. This is however not something that may be seen by other men, however it’s a very important feature of the super all-round watch.
The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m GMT Goodplanet (that is a very long name) packs a lot of interesting and incredibly convenient features. To start with there is the nice dimensions 43.5mm stainless steel case that is extremely nicely finished. There is the in-house motion with co-axial escapement, there’s the (convenient) 60 hours of power reserve when fully stopped and finally there is of course the exact suitable GMT function! All these features will be clarified, but we will need to explain a little more about the GMT function.
OFFICE GMT VS. TRAVELLER’S GMT
There are several methods to show the time in another, second, time zone. Watches using a GMT purpose are quite common and feature an extra 24-hour hand to indicate time in a different time zone.
The traveler’s GMT watch has a different flexible hour , such as the Rolex GMT-Master II and all variations of this Omega Seamaster GMT (such as this new Seamaster PO GMT.) This is the best watch for travellers as it is simple to adjust the”local time” that is signaled from the hour, minute and second hand. If you unscrew the crown, pull it in first place, you can correct the hour hand using one-hour increments. The 24-hour GMT hand won’t be affected and keeps indicating the correct home-time. The date is connected to the local time, so you’ve got perfect indications for the location where you just landed: the local time, local date and the 24-hour hand will indicate your home time.
DIAL / HANDS
In total there are 9 versions of the Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m GMT; five with a black dial and four using a navy blue dial. The blue dial is a sign for either the titanium model, or, like the one we reviewed, for the Goodplanet variant that underlines the partnership between Omega and the GoodPlanet Foundation.
The dial is at the well-known Planet Ocean style, also features style elements like the old 1957 Seamaster, exactly like the recently introduced Seamaster 300. Applied on the dial are the glistening, facetted and rhodium-plated hour mark. Between the hour mark is a second railtrack that functions as instant markers and a date window at the 3 o’clock position. Great detail: the date disk is black and also the date numerals are in white. The upper half of the dial features aan applied Omega seamaster planet ocean gmt black fake watch logo and name, and”GMT” in orange.
The stainless steel case includes a beautiful mixture of polished and directly brushed finishing. The domed (and needless to say scratch-resistant) sapphire crystal is enhanced using anti-reflective treatment on both sides which works wonderful. Frequently, when you look at the moment, it looks like there is no crystal at all.
The part which usually intrigues the team here in the Monochrome headquarters, is your movement. And in this case (pun intended) the motion is quite interesting, and we have covered it on several occasions before. So please check our previous posts and I’ll be short’n sweet in the description today. Since Omega is going to present their brand new Master Co-Axial moves to the whole collection, we wouldn’t be surprised if that Seamaster PO GMT will soon be armed with Omega’s 100 percent anti-magnetic motion soon.
The self-winding movement is equipped with Omega’s three-level Co-Axial escapement and Si14 ion equilibrium spring. The winding mass winds in both directions, to reduce twisting period, and is completed with exclusive Geneva waves at arabesque.
Here is the easy part for me to compose, since the Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m GMT Goodplanet is this a great watch I can only recommend. Yes, it’s an annoyingly name. The size is right, the burden too, the choices for strap or bracelet provides choices for men and women who either want it onto a metal bracelet or on a leather or rubber strap. And when that is insufficient, and also the wight is simply too much, you can opt for the titanium model.
I have been a lover of the Seamaster Planet Ocean since the first moment I saw it. Now it has been equipped with a GMT function (to be exact, a pupil’s GMT) it has come to be much more complete. In my opinion this is the best alternative for those who want an alternative to the Rolex GMT Master II. It’s actually the only true competition for Rolex in this section.
