HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
From warranty card, which matches the serial number on the case lug, we can accurately date this watch to being sold in March 2007.
Launched in 2005, the Planet Ocean range of Seamaster’s had double the depth rating of the standard watch, and were known for there bright orange tones. They are still available, and the closest current model to this watch is this one that retails for £5,280.
This is the larger 45.5mm case, which is now only available with the chronograph. The specification is impressive – the George Daniels developed Co-Axial escapement, unique to Omega, is fitted to the COSC Chronometer rated calibre 2500 movement that also has a two day power reserve and quick set date. The internal dust cover is still in place (pictured), and the movement underneath is very clean. The crown screws down, the bezel is unidirectional and the crystal is domed sapphire. The case has light marks, a good sign this watch has not been polished. You have the helium escape valve at 10, which you will never use, but you will use the quick set date. The dial is excellent, as are the hands, and the lume is impressive. The rubber strap is the original and attached to the Omega deployant clasp. The original rubber strap does have some wear, but you can tone down the orange on this model if you want by fitting a black strap. This model of Planet Ocean never had a bracelet fitted, so the options are open.
This watch will be supplied with the original presentation box, papers (instruction book, warranty card, chronometer certification and pictograms) and our Certificate of Authenticity.
