The Watch

Here we have a 2016 Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m Co-Axial 232.30.42.21.01.003 that pays tribute to its dive watch heritage, with a 42mm stainless steel case that curves over your wrist with the characteristic twisted lugs, and a lug-to-lug length of 47.5mm and a case thickness of 15.5mm give the watch an impressive wrist presence. On the right side is a signed screw-down crown and on the left side at 10 o’clock a manual Helium escape valve. The unidirectional bezel has deep knurling for grip and a black ceramic dive insert with silver numerals and markings. A domed sapphire crystal AR coated on both sides sits above a black dial, an outer minute track has applied baton indexes filled with Super-LumiNova, orange 12, 6 and 9 mark the hours, at 3 o’clock a colour-matched date window. Broad arrow hands have a stripe of Super-LumiNova and are complemented by an orange-tipped swapping second hand, at 12 o’clock Omega motif, orange “Seamaster” “Professional” printed in white and at 6 o’clock “Co-Axial” “Chronometer” “600m/2000ft” completes this vintage-inspired sports dive watch. On the reverse, the exhibition case back showcases the Automatic Omega Cal. 8500, 29 jewels, 25,200 beats per hour. This in-house movement released in 2007 is Chronometer Certified with a bi-directional rotor which reduces winding time and a Co-Axial Escapement for excellent stability and durability. Decorated with Cotes de Geneve. The watch comes paired with its 20mm Omega bracelet with an upgraded Omega-signed push deployment clasp, the original clasp is in the box, and all links are provided, and the watch comes with its Omega presentation box and papers.


Personal Note

Is it an Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean without a pop of orange? This 42mm reference 232.30.42.21.01.003 certainly has that pop of orange along with an upgraded Omega glide adjust clasp which brings this into the realm of adjustable comfort within seconds and helps with this size of the watch for those with smaller wrists, allowing you to get that absolutely perfect fit. This is one well worth booking an appointment to come and see if you are unsure of the size, I was amazed by how well and comfortable it wears on my wrist and I love smaller watches, so don't rule it out without trying it on first!


The Brand

They were formerly known as the La Generale Watch Co. in 1848 founded by Louis Brandt in La Chaux-de-Fonds. When he died in 1879, his sons carried on his dream. In 1880 they moved to 96 Rue Jakob-Stampfli where they remain today. The brothers produced their first mass-produced calibre, the Labrador In 1885. Just a few years later in 1892, they produced the first minute-repeater. In 1903 they renamed the company Omega until 1982 when they officially changed their name to Omega SA. During WW1 Omega watches were used as official timekeepers for the Royal Flying Corps and the US Army. In 1930, Omega and Tissot merged together to form Société Suisse pour l'Industrie Horlogère (SSIH) In 1931, another group was formed - Allgemeine Schweizerische Uhrenindustrie AG (ASUAG). Where SSIH was primarily French-speaking, ASUAG was founded by the more German-speaking members of the Swiss watch industry. In 1948 they introduced the first edition of one of its most symbolic watches: the Seamaster. Omega first introduced the Constellation in 1952. At the time it was Omega's flagship timepiece. The first models had a Cal. 354 bumper movement in them. Later in 1955, Omega introduced the Automatic Cal. 50x, followed in 1959 by the Cal.55x (no date) and 56x (date) versions. Many of the Constellations came with pie-pan dials, diamond indexes, and fancy lug configurations. All the gold Constellations of that time have the Observatory of Geneva's hand engraved on the back. The stainless steel and stainless steel/gold versions had a gold medallion on the back with the Observatory of Geneva. The eight stars above the Observatory stand for the many exploits of Omega in the world Chronometer competition. Celebrating the fact that all Constellations are Chronometer Certified. In 1962, when astronaut Wally Schirra wore a Speedmaster on his Mercury Sigma 7 Mission, making it the first Omega watch to enter space. After rigorous tests, NASA used Omega for all their Apollo missions including the 1969 Moon landing of Apollo 11. Today Omega is still an astronaut's first choice. In 1969, President Nixon famously said it was “too valuable” and turned down the first-ever all-gold Speedmaster Professional Deluxe. As a response to the ever-growing threat of electronic watches to the manufacturers of mechanical watches, Omega and many Swiss brands such as Rolex and Patek Philippe formed Centre Electronique Horologer (CEH). Prototypes began to appear in 1967 with their production starting in 1968. Then In 1972, Omega introduced the reference, 198.030, which included the Omega calibre 1250, a ‘tuning-fork electronic movement which was made under licence from Bulova. Later we saw a merger of SSIH and ASUAG into SMH, or Société de Microélectronique et d’Horlogerie. This merger took place in 1983. In 1992, the company acquired Blancpain, and in 1998 it officially rebranded itself from SMH to the Swatch Group. Then, in 1999, they purchased and integrated Breguet into the Swatch Group.
