As a tribute to its maritime heritage, Omega decided to launch the Planet Ocean collection in 2005. These exclusive models continue to celebrate the brand’s diving watchmaking heritage today. The lot here offered is a very nice and colorful example of the Seamaster Coaxial Planet Ocean reference 22.214.171.124.04.001. This 43.5 mm stainless steel model features a glossy white ceramic dial, with applied orange Arabic numeral hour markers at 6, 9, and 12 and luminous applied steel baton indexes around a perimeter minute/seconds scale plus a date aperture at 3 o’clock. The unidirectional rotating orange “liquid metal” bezel has a 60-minute graduated time scale with Arabic numerals every ten minutes from 20 to 50, and a luminous Super-LumiNova dot/triangle at the 60-minute position. Other features include a honeycomb screw down case back and a polyamide NATO strap with orange, gray and white stripes complete with a polished stainless steel buckle and loops. The timepiece is waterproof up to 600 meters/60 bar and equipped with a helium escape valve. The OMEGA 8900 Master Chronometer caliber that powers this timepiece is visible through the transparent case back. To achieve Master Chronometer status, it passed the series of 8 rigorous tests set by METAS (Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology). Furthermore, the watch is provided with its original full set and invoice.
