39 years after the introduction of the first Ploprof model, a watch designed to withstand extreme pressures for divers working at great depths, Omega decided to launch a new completely updated version. The present Seamaster Ploprof 1200M, that has been presented to the world in 2009, is the result of modernizations and further researches that gave birth to an object able to combine advanced modern technology with an absolutely iconic watch, capable of making tribute to Omega’s rich diving heritage. The look and the design are on the whole similar to those of its predecessor but its steel case, ceramic bezel and updated Omega Co-Axial Master Chronometer 8912 caliber are a revolutionary technology perfect to resist magnetic fields and capable of excellent chronometric performance. The present model is in impeccable and almost NOS condition: the sturdy and bold steel case features the orange 2 o’clock chronometric button that recalls the color of the minute hand; the black bidirectional rotating bezel, with its numbers and the immersion scale painted with white Super-Luminova has been specifically designed to be able to withstand strong pressures and shocks. The black dial with a date window between 4 and 5 o’clock and white applied indexes maintains the same line of the bezel: the choice of dark colors reflects Omega’s desire to recall the sea depths, the environment for which this watch was specially designed. The stainless steel “sharkproof” link bracelet adds a further touch of exploration and adventure to an object that not only follows in the footsteps of its iconic predecessor, but forms new ones to create its own personal path within history.
