OMEGA – SEAMASTER PLANET OCEAN “BIG BLUE”
The Bienne watchmaker has a new addition in its collection of diver’s watches coated from top to bottom in blue ceramic; a colour that would sink into the ocean if it wasn’t splashed with orange.
Last summer Omega took us deep into the ocean abysses with its Seamaster Planet Ocean quartet called “Deep Black”, diver’s watches with a GMT function made mainly of black, lightweight and scratch-resistant black ceramic. This time the Bienne watchmaker has chosen briny blue to adorn its Seamaster Planet Ocean “Big Blue” without neglecting its signature bright orange that was on the first model unveiled in 2005.
The blue ceramic on the latest in the Seamaster collection has washed over not only the case but also the dial, bezel and deployment clasp. The colour is halfway between sea and electric blue and is enhanced by splashes of orange on the case, dial and strap.
We’re going “mechanical” again
After more than 30 years, Ronda is getting back into the production of mechanical movements. At Baselworld 2016, we presented our R150 automatic caliber from the “Ronda mecano” line.
Our new in-house construction demonstrates a very high vertical range of manufacture and is based on industrial production technology.
The exclusive “Ronda mecano” line is Swiss Made and destined for high-quality timekeepers.
