Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean “Big Blue”Replica Watches

While Omega’s biggest news at this year’s Baselworld was the 60th anniversary of its Speedmaster collection, the brand also introduced several interesting pieces in its other watch families. One of the most notable is this week’s Watch to Watch: the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean “Deep Blue,” a GMT-equipped divers’ watch with a case milled from a single block of blue ceramic.

Omega says that the new watch is inspired by the success of last year’s Planet Ocean “Deep Black” editions, which were the first ceramic-cased divers’ Cheap Omega Replica built to be water-resistant to 600 meters. The “Deep Blue” model is the first Omega watch with a case, and a dial, made entirely of blue ceramic. As orange and blue are considered by Omega to be the signature colors of the Planet Ocean Omega Replica series, orange highlights abound: a 24-hour GMT scale surrounds the dial; the first 15-minute-sector of the 60-minute diving scale on the rotating divers’ bezel is made from a blend of orange rubber and ceramic; and orange rubber injections have been used to create the Omega logo on the crown and the “He” symbol on the helium-release valve at 10 o’clock. The central GMT hand and the applied numerals at 12, 6, and 9 o’clock are also in blue’s complementary color. The hour hand, minute hand, and applied hour indices are in 18k white gold. The numerals on the bezel’s diving scale are made of LiquidMetal, a material used frequently in Planet Ocean Omega Replica Watches.

The 45.5-mm ceramic case of the Planet Ocean “Big Blue” is pressed into shape from a special zirconium-based powder, with the blue pigmentation added at this early stage. Afterward it is heated to temperatures reaching 1,400º Celsius in a sintering process, making it extra hard and scratch-resistant. Diamond-equipped tools are then used to define the edges and grooves, after which the case is lubricated and cooled by high-pressure oil solutions. Finally, a three-hour plasma treatment in a 20,000º C furnace prepares the case for its precision laser engraving. The resulting case is six times harder than steel and never scratches, discolors, or fades.
The screw-down caseback, with its familiar Seamaster alveol pattern, is equipped with Cheap Omega Replica patented Naiad Lock, which ensures that the engraved text around the big sapphire window remains in readable position. On display through that caseback window is Omega Master Chronometer Caliber 8906, an automatic movement with a co-axial escapement and a 60-hour power reserve that powers the timekeeping, GMT function, and date indication at the 3 o’clock position. Like all Master Chronometer movements, it has passed eight rigorous tests set by METAS, the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology, ensuring a high level of endurance, precision, and resistance to magnetic fields.

To wind itself.” The Speedmaster Mark III’s other interesting features include the cross-shaped 60 minute chronograph hand and its unique 24-hour day/night indicator at 9 o’clock.

Continuing its secret project to build the perfect space watch for NASA, which started with 1969’s Alaska I, Omega produced another prototype, this time in a Omega Replica style that retained some of the original features of the Alaska I model, including the large red heat shield. The watch’s white dial, engineered to better reflect the heat of the sun, was also retained. Other updates included the rocket-shaped subdial hands, luminous markers and radial numerals on the subdials, and the 0 – 60 numbered bezel.This model is nicknamed the “Lobster” due to the unusual shape of its bracelet, which resembles the tail of a crustacean. With the desire for electronic Omega Replica Watches growing during this period, Omega created the Speedsonic was with an innovative electromechanical movement to meet demands for greater precision and reliability. Interestingly, the crown was deliberately made smaller in size, to emphasize the reduced need the wearer would have to manually change the time or date.

This model — the world’s first automatic chronograph to receive an official Chronometer Certification — was released to celebrate the founding of the Cheap Omega Replica brand in 1848.

When the Omega Replica Watches briefly went digital, during the heyday of quartz digital watches, this prototype was created for the astronauts at NASA based on the commercial models. It had all the same functions but also included a BETA light system that could illuminate the display without using a typical lightbulb. 12 pieces were sent to NASA astronauts, who tested the watch in training and on the Space Shuttle. Ultimately, they chose not to adopt the watch.
