First look…world premiere orange ceramic bezel…platinum case, dial and strap stitching…
Omega has just upped the bar, unveiling the new Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Orange Ceramic with a brushed and polished 43.5mm case crafted from 950-grade platinum with a bi-directional 24-hour GMT rotating bezel whose polished ring is made from orange ceramic (patent pending), a world premiere. This stunning wristwatch has been produced in a limited edition of only eight pieces.
Adding to the watch’s striking appearance are the 850-grade platinum Liquidmetal numerals, division lines, inner ring and triangle on the bezel. The dial is also platinum, with a sand-blasted finish. You can only catch a glimpse from the images provided by Omega, but “Pt950” is engraved on the dial, just below the orange “GMT” lettering and just above the center hole. The hands and indices are 18K white gold, and the 6 – 9 – 12 numerals, GMT applique and the central GMT hands are made of orange aluminum.
The watch is fitted with an integrated orange leather strap with platinum stitching and a 950-grade platinum foldover clasp. An orange rubber strap is also delivered with it along with a special tool to change it. This timepiece is delivered in a special wooden presentation box, with a full four-year warranty. No word yet on price. WOW what a watch. Looks like Omega has big plans for 2014!
“World Premiere” engraved on the caseback along with the limited edition number. Also you get a view of the OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 8615 an automatic mechanical movement with Si14 silicon balance spring.
p.s. Nice job Omega cutting into the SIHH thunder and putting the spotlight on yourselves!
