Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Chrono 600m

Posted on

As I previously posted about the Omega Planet Ocean non chronograph version 42mm, thought it made sense to follow with reference to the “big Brother” 45mm Chronograph 600m with orange bezel.  The Omega seamaster planet ocean chrono model number 232.30.46.51.01.002 is a nice big lump compared to the 42mm non chronograph, made in stainless steel brushed with subtle polished shoulders and pushers and rotating bezel. It houses the calibre 9300 co axial movement Omega’s bullet proof in-house chrono movement they use on a lot of their chrono watches. One of the big changes from the old chrono’s is 2 slit seconds sub dials instead of 3.

The watch is water resistant to 600m as the old one was but this wears very big on the wrist as is very thick indeed, date window at 6 o clock, a great combination with the orange bits on the pushers and little chrono hand plus number 12 on the dial.  This model has see through caseback as well always nice to see the movement in my opinion although folk thinks it pointless on the wrist. I do like the chrono version probably one of my favourite planet oceans all round, far better than the older versions also added bonus of a true diver’s tool like Rolex Submariners but big and beautiful.

Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m

The Omega Seamaster planet Ocean 600m co axial reference 232.30.42.21.01.002 this is a current model on the market which is 42mm in size and comes in 45mm too.  The Omega has a calibre 8500 co axial movement bulletproof in-house movement by Omega.  The orange bezel always stands out as a Omega planet ocean and is very distinctive to a watch enthusiast I have always notice them on the folk wrists in passing.

The orange bezel as most people think it is made of ceramic like most of Omega current models, that is not quite correct unfortunately Omega could not get it right manufacturing ceramic bezel with the orange so they sacked the idea.  The black version of the same watch are ceramic thou, do love the planet ocean with orange bezel water resistant to 600m with stunning see through caseback always a nice touch with many swiss watches although cannot actually see the caseback on the wrist.

Omega has scratch resistant sapphire crystal and the finish of the watch is brushed steel with polished shoulders a tad heavy the watch is, the chronograph versions are very heavy indeed. Overhaul the Omega seamaster planet is well respected great everyday watch and great value on the used market and I think if you love watches you after to try one.
