I’ve been waiting for Seamaster Planet Ocean like this! Taking a page from its Speedmaster “Dark Side of the Moon” collection, these new SMPO’s features a black ceramic mono block case, bezel, and dial. On the Black and 18K Sedna™ gold models, the ceramic cases and dials have been polished for a glossy effect. The blue and red versions are brushed for a matt effect that offers better visibility underwater. The unidirectional bezels are also made of black ceramic. In addition to hour/minute/date functions, there is also a GMT hand, with scale on the rehaut (the vertically oriented ring between the dial and the crystal).

Finally, at a depth of 300 m, everything goes black, except of course, your still highly-visible Planet Ocean divers’ watch with Super-Luminova.
The straps have clasps made of ceramic-covered titanium:
