Swiss luxury watch brand OMEGA expands its iconic Seamaster collection by introducing the new Planet Ocean Dark Grey, a new professional diving instrument crafted in silicon nitride ceramic [Si3N4].
Silicon nitride is two times lighter than Zircon ceramic. This is the first time that OMEGA has employed this modern material on such a large scale in a watchmaking piece.
The lightness of silicon nitride ceramic gives the users an extra level of comfort on their wrist, while the robust qualities provide reliable strength for serious explorations. In design, this dark grey material has been used for the 45.5 mm case-body, patented NAIAD LOCK caseback, and bezel ring.
Elsewhere OMEGA has used contrasting Grade 5 titanium for the bezel body and strap folding clasp, as well as the sand-blasted dial with its anthracite hands and indexes.
Water-resistant to 600 meters, the Seamaster Planet Ocean Dark Grey houses the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8906. Made of grade 5 titanium, this ultra-light self-winding mechanical movement with GMT function guarantees exceptional levels of precision and performance.
