Replica Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean, in 2005, Omega launched a new professional diver’s watch collection dubbed the Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M. Although modern in terms of design, materials, and mechanics, the Omega Planet Ocean models draw inspiration from the brand’s rich legacy of diving watches. Today, the Planet Ocean is Omega’s signature pro dive watch line and in true form, there are plenty of variations available. Eight years after the initial 2005 introduction of the Planet Ocean collection, the Omega Planet Ocean GMT made its debut in 2013. The model also introduced a new 43.5mm case size to the lineup, which was in between the existing 42mm and 45.5mm Planet Ocean cases. Similar to other Planet Ocean models, the GMT edition is water-resistant to 600 meters (2,000 feet), includes a manually-operated helium escape valve at 10’clock, and a highly luminous dial.
However, unlike the unidirectional 60-minute dive bezels of the other Planet Ocean watches, most of the Planet Ocean GMT includes a bidirectional rotating bezel marked to 24 hours. This is, of course, because the 24-hour bezel is used in conjunction with the additional GMT hand on the dial to display a secondary time zone. A particularly appealing design touch on the Planet Ocean is the use of Omega’s iconic double broad arrow hands where both the hour and minute hands include large arrow tips. The Planet Ocean GMT also includes a date window at 3 o’clock, which accompanies 6, 9, and 12 Arabic numerals and tapered baton indexes at the rest of the hours. Protecting the face of the watch is the domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal treated with an anti-reflective coating on both sides.
