replica Breitling Navitimer 1 Automatic 41 Watch

The Breitling Navitimer is easily one of the most respected pilot’s watches on the market. First conceived in the 1950s, these watches were no-nonsense tools meant to help a pilot calculate ground speed or fuel consumption on the fly (hah). The Breitling Navitimer 1 Automatic 41 watch was an effort on the brand’s part to blend some of the expected replica Breitling Navitimer 1 Automatic 41 Watch features into a highly functional timepiece, all the while maintaining that classic design we know and love. The Navitimer 1 draws much of its inspiration from the Navitimer 806, a simple three-hander released in the 1950s. The Navitimer 1 Automatic 41 is being released in two different 41mm-case versions. The first is an all stainless steel construction, and the second has a stainless steel case but is accompanied by an 18k red gold bezel. (Previously, these were only available in 38mm, seen here.) The Stainless steel version will be available in one of three dial colors: black, blue, and silver, whereas the red gold bezel version will be available with a silver or anthracite dial. The watch will be powered by Breitling’s chronometer-certified Caliber 17, which ticks away at 4hz and boasts a 38-hour power reserve.

The watch is resistant to 3bar (30 meters) and will be available on either an alligator strap or a stainless steel bracelet.
This seems like a nice generation of the Navitimer. It’s firmly rooted in Breitling’s best-known strand of DNA, but has been modernized and sized appropriately in an attempt to widen appeal. Sized at 41mm, it will be appropriate for a wide array of wrist sizes for those who might have found the previous version a little small. The dial layout retains the information-packed aesthetic of other Navitimers but has been balanced well with the date placement at 6 o’clock. I do expect a greater power reserve from an in-house movement from Breitling. It seems to me that 38 hours is particularly low, when 72-hour power reserves are almost becoming table Swiss replica uk watches stakes these days. Even the Breitling B01 movement has stretched out to approximately 70 hours.

Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Titanium Tantalum Limited Edition

I t has been 25 years since Omega first introduced us to the Seamaster Diver 300m. In those 25 years we have seen a lot of development including new colorways and new technology. This year at Baselworld 2018 Omega is reintroducing us to the Seamaster Professional with the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Titanium Tantalum Limited Edition. A version of this watch that will feature Tantalum as the base metal of the bezel and middle links of the bracelet as well as grade 2 titanium for the case and contrasting links in the bracelet. This watch will also feature details of Omega’s proprietary 18k Sedna Gold on the crown, bezel ring, helium escape valve, and the hands of the watch. All of this is mechanically backed up by the newest iteration of Omega’s Master Coaxial movement, the Master Chronometer 8806 that will be METAS-certified.

Brand: Omega
Model: Seamaster Diver 300m Titanium Tantalum Limited Edition
Dimensions: 42mm
Case Material: Titanium with a Tantalum base on the bezel and bracelet center links
Crystal/Lens: Sapphire
Movement: Omega In-House Master Chronometer 8806
Strap/Bracelet: Titanium bracelet with Tantalum and 18k Sedna Gold center links

My very first impression when I saw this Titanium/Tantalum version of the Seamaster Professional was that it came across as strikingly feminine and that it wasn’t something that I would normally consider. It wasn’t until I started to dive into some of the technology behind the use of Sedna Gold and Tantalum that my interests were piqued. Tantalum is an inert lustrous material similar to Titanium that does not corrode and looks silvery blue when polished. It’s impressive when it can be incorporated into something like a watch due to its extreme hardness and difficulty to work with. That mixed with Sedna gold, a proprietary alloy of gold, copper, and palladium that Omega uses to ensure its luster over a long period of time makes this watch very impressive to me. While it’s still not a watch that would fit my personal aesthetic, I do think that it shows Omega’s abilities when it comes to watch manufacturing.


The Omega Seamaster Diver 300m Titanium Tantalum Limited Edition might seem like, “just another,” version of an otherwise established and less-exciting series from Omega. It’s not until you really dig into what this watch is made of and what that represents before you start to see its appeal. Tantalum was introduced, in part, to the watch-scene by Omega with the debut of the original Seamaster Diver 300m 25 years ago, and their use of it today as a reference to their own history is an important detail to catch. We’ll share pricing when we confirm with Omega and be sure to stay tuned for more Baselworld 2018 coverage.

Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Chronograph Watches For 2019

For 2019, Omega is following up last year’s refreshed Seamaster Diver 300M with a Chronograph collection. There are six new Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Co-Axial Master Chronometer Chronograph watches, all done in 44mm-wide cases in material ranging from steel to solid Sedna Gold case on a rubber strap. Unlike the Seamaster 300M Chronographs of the past, these new models have seriously cut down on clutter from ubiquitous older versions and the use of only two chronograph sub-dials breathes fresh new life into the collection.
Of course, these new Diver 300M Chronograph watches have the new features that the upgraded 2018 time-only versions were outfitted with, such as: date window moved to 6 o’clock and the laser-cut wave pattern dial. Inside, you’ve got the METAS-certified caliber 9900 that’s been seen in Omega chronographs like the Seamaster Planet Ocean, as well.


Brand: Omega
Model: Seamaster Diver 300M Chronograph
Dimensions: 44m wide
Water Resistance: 300M
Case Material: Steel, two-tone steel and Sedna gold, Solid Sedna Gold
Crystal/Lens: Sapphire Crystal
Movement: Calibre 9900/9901
Power Reserve: 60 hours
Strap/Bracelet: steel bracelet, rubber strap


Adding the chronograph version to last year’s highly lauded Seamaster Diver 300M was a logical move from Omega, and editing down the dial is a savvy move for contemporary buyers. A 60-minute counter at 9 o’clock and 12-hour counter at 3 o’clock leave space for that awesome looking 6 o’clock date window. The Seamaster 300M Diver Swiss replica uk watches Chronograph has never been known for balance, but it’s a new collection for a new generation of buyer.

Each version has a dial done in ceramic with laser-cut wave engravings, but you’ll Best Quality Fake Omega Watches also notice that they all have ceramic chronograph pushers as well. Of note, the priciest version is referred to as the Sedna Gold edition, which has a solid gold case, gold ringed sub-dials and gold inner bezel. Finally, this version has a laser-ablated black ceramic bezel that has a more matte than glossy look.c

replica Breitling Transocean Chronograph 1915 Watches

As I mentioned in my recent review of the Breitling Transocean 38 watch, Breitling was not really a brand that I found myself drawn to, as they felt overly-complicated for my own daily use and preferences. The Breitling Transocean collection, however, shows a slice of their lineup that takes things in a different (and dare I say, cleaner) direction. It is in this collection that we find an homage to the first chronograph with an independent pushpiece, in the form of the Breitling Transocean Chronograph 1915.


I have to say, I was surprised by how much I liked this watch. I mean, yes, there was a lot to like with it’s relatively clean dial, and plenty of vintage cues, including a domed (and raised) sapphire crystal which gives the sense of the high-rise acrylic crystals of the past. It is also a chronograph, however, which is a complication that I, frankly, have not found a lot of utility for in my life. As such, the design seemed to not sit well with me. While the Breitling Transocean Chronograph 1915 is not making me rethink that stance, it is one that I was happy to spend time with.
First and foremost, I think it is due to the monopusher design, which is right up at the 2 o’clock position. So, not only have we dropped one of the pushers that would normally flank the crown, we also have a different shape, curving gracefully up from the side of the case. Actually, if you look below the crown, you can see the horn shape actually starts there, with the line continuing through the crown. Yes, it is a little odd to see something jutting out from the case like the pusher does, but I appreciate the design they created here. Also of note? The pusher is nicely rounded off, so I did not experience any issues with it getting caught on a shirt cuff, or even feeling like it dug into my wrist.


Secondly, the almost monotone vintage-inspired dial helps the sub-registers blend in quite nicely. Overall, I would call the tone a champagne color (not overly yellowed, thankfully) with a lume hue on the numerals and in the hands that gives that aged feel. I will not pretend that the subdials disappear, which they don’t. You have them set slightly Swiss replica uk watches lower than the main surface of the dial, so there is a crisp delineation around the subseconds (at 9 o’clock) and chrono minutes (at 3 o’clock), along with them having a slightly darker shade. It still worked to make it so it was not screaming that it’s a chronograph at you, and that is something I liked.

I have reviewed other watches with numerals cut off, and of course, read reviews of watches with that styling, as well as comments about those watches. While it has been a polarizing design direction (at least it seems that way to me), it was something here that, on the Breitling Transocean Chronograph 1915, finally got stuck in my teeth. Perhaps that was its destiny, given that the Transocean lineup finally has me warming up to Breitling. That, or I finally just reached the tipping point on this, and that particular switch has flipped for me to set another preference that has formed from the watches crossing my desk.
I think I have pretty well-covered the dial side of the watch, so let’s  buy Breitling watches flip it over. Here, we see through a fairly large sapphire crystal the new Breitling B14 manually-wound double column-wheel movement. This is not, perhaps, the most stunning movement that I have ever seen, but it is well-finished (to my untrained eye), and it is interesting to watch those column wheels in action when you kick the chronograph off. Realistically, when you are looking at a movement like this, unless you are really into the intricacies, you are looking for the kinetic bits – the balance wheel and then pieces related to the chronograph. So, in that regard, it’s well done. I am also of a mind to equate it to what we are seeing on the dial – understated, and supremely functional.

replica Cartier Rotonde De Cartier Earth And Moon Watches

In the past couple of years, under the guidance of Carole Forestier-Kasapi, Cartier’s Director of Movement Creation, Cartier has established itself as a major player in haute horology. Some notable recent pieces include the Cartier Rotonde de Cartier Astrocalendaire watch, the Cartier Rotonde De Cartier Grande Complication, and the watch you see here, the very special Cartier Rotonde de Cartier Earth And Moon Tourbillon watch. The Cartier Rotonde de Cartier Earth and Moon Tourbillon watch was actually first introduced in 2014, with this being a pink gold version.
The Cartier Rotonde de Cartier Earth and Moon Tourbillon watch in pink gold is identical mechanically to the one released in 2014 except for the case material and dial styling. The first Cartier Rotonde de Cartier Earth and Moon Tourbillon watch came in a platinum case and had a striking lapis lazuli dial. It was also limited to just 50 pieces, so not everyone who wanted one could have one.


This version comes in a pink gold case. Case dimensions are unchanged at 47mm wide and 16.55mm thick. The case is expertly designed and the gently curved lugs mean it will even fit quite well on thinner wrists. It also helps that the brown alligator strap is so well-made, which is something that maybe does not need to be clarified with a watch that costs about a quarter of a million dollars. The case finishing is also top notch, with perfectly polished surfaces and well-defined lines throughout. Another noteworthy feature of the case is the beaded crown, also rendered in 18K pink gold, and set with a blue sapphire cabochon.
However, the highlight for me has got to be the dial. While the original  buy cartier watches in platinum had a lapis lazuli dial, this new model in pink gold has an “openworked” dial with two gorgeous meteorite discs. The use of meteorite is fitting because it calls to mind the surface of the moon since this is, after all, a watch with a moon phase complication. That aside, the meteorite dial has this ethereal quality and invokes the adventure of space like few other watches can.

However, the Cartier Rotonde de fake Cartier watches Earth and Moon Tourbillon watch’s pièce de résistance is its on-demand moon phase indicator. Activating the pusher at 4 o’clock will cause the second meteorite disc to swing into position to indicate the current phase of the moon. The phase of the moon is read by telling how much it obscures the tourbillon. A full moon would mean that the tourbillon remains completely exposed, while a new moon would mean that the meteorite disc completely covers the tourbillon. It’s also worth mentioning that the moon phase indicator is accurate to a single day every 126 years. All in all, it’s a very creative take on one of the oldest horological complications.


The caliber 9440 MC that powers the watch has been excellently finished. On the dial side, there is expertly applied perlage, and flipping the watch over to its sapphire case back exposes an intricate series of bridges Swiss replica uk watches that resemble stars and have been finely beveled. The wheels have circular graining and the jewel sinks have been polished. Caliber 9440 MC is hand-wound and is made out of 362 parts, including 40 jewels. It beats at 3Hz and has a power reserve of 72 hours.
The Cartier Rotonde de Cartier Earth and Moon Tourbillon watch is an excellent demonstration of Cartier’s watchmaking abilities and it is a creative take on the moon phase complication. It’s one of the most impressive and whimsical watches that Cartier makes.

replica Breitling Superocean Heritage II B20 Automatic 42 Watches

In 2017, Swiss emblem Breitling ultimately updated its high-quality-promoting Superocean historical past series with the Superocean history II own family, which arrived in some case sizes, movement options and, of route, shade and fabric picks.


on a easy level, this is an acknowledgment of why blue-dialed watches are so famous. I put on loads of blue colours and feature located that having a blue-dialed — and otherwise easy and universally generic steel — sports activities watch fits my needs so very frequently. I additionally generally choose the bigger replica Breitling Superocean Heritage II B20 Automatic 42 Watches  46mm-extensive model of the Superocean background II, but clearly observed that this 42mm-wide model is higher appropriate to my wrist. there’s perhaps nobody location in which the Superocean background II B20 automated forty two timepiece excels, other than imparting the right mixture of favor, poise, consolation, legibility, and sheer application so much of the time. different human beings have genuinely caught directly to this reality, as well, which helps provide an explanation for why the Superocean heritage has, for so many years, been a top-supplier for the emblem (at least within the usa).


Breitling’s Superocean circle of relatives commenced in 1957 and, buy breitling watches while this timepiece isn’t an exact duplicate (a great factor), the Superocean history II lower back the unique fashion-palms. I wasn’t superb into the hand-set at first, but at the same time as carrying the watch i discovered them to be legible and not the reason of any distractions. Luminant is not where the Superocean historical past II series excels — which is its weakest point as a “severe dive watch.” Lume excellent is good, however in case you study the dial, the hands and, to a extra extent the small lume dots, eight of the 12-hour markers will no longer compete with other sports watches which might be more lume-heavy. For maximum conditions (specifically urban-dwelling), this isn’t an problem. but for the reason that this is still a diver’s watch, it’s well worth declaring.


this is one of the first-generation Breitling watches to have the brand new (again) replica Breitling  watches emblem with out the aviator wings. The dial is symmetrical with carried out, polished hour markers and a date window located at 6 o’clock. usual dial refinement is excessive, and the polished factors on the dial work properly because the slightly domed sapphire crystal over the dial is so properly AR-covered that it does not generally have glare. If the crystal have been now not so properly-tailored to this specific dial, then we’d have double the glare state of affairs, which would have led to a less expensive look. I’m sure watch collectors Swiss replica uk watches can consider such watches of their minds (lots of which are tons extra luxurious than this Superocean heritage II B20 automated forty two).

Replica Breitling Navitimer 1 B01 Chronograph 43 Swissair Edition Watches

New for 2019, replica Breitling releases an all-new Navitimer with a few exciting have an impact on and aesthetic changes. The all-new fake Breitling Navitimer 1 B01 Chronograph 43 Swissair edition appears to be the primary of an airlines series that Breitling guarantees to enlarge. closing yr, Breitling made a formidable move and launched an “updated” fake Navitimer 8 watches series to mixed critiques. Later, they launched their extra contemporary B01 take on the traditional Navitimer layout, and that turned into lots less debatable if a chunk predictable. Now, quite unpredictably, drawing from the Navitimer’s early days and airways from that technology, the new watch takes affect from what Breitling claims is the “maximum emblematic airways of the time,” starting with this Swissair version.


this is an exciting move for Breitling, and one which appears to be the start of cheap Navitimer 8 Collection watches a brand new subset of Navitimers. This Swissair edition seems to be the cornerstone of what cheap Breitling claims will be a “capsule collection.” it is becoming, I suppose, thinking about the brand’s Swiss nature, in addition to a previous Swissair “collaboration” signified handiest by way of the watch’s call and an aircraft-tipped seconds hand. This watch particularly is unique-searching, if now not a piece  buy Breitling watches seemingly racing-inspired, however I bet there’s no way around that whilst you’re working with a pink and black colour scheme.


The Breitling Navitimer 1 B01 Chronograph 43 Swissair edition has all the identical capabilities as your fashionable Navitimer, including the slide rule bezel and panda dial sub-registers excluding the crimson colorway, and “Swissair” brand at the sapphire caseback. interestingly, Breitling makes use of the present day logo of Swissair (publish 2002 financial ruin) notwithstanding the stated have an impact on of the Fifties and ’60s (although i’d argue it’s extra ’70s). Regardless, the greater cutting-edge branding is unlike so a few of the Pan-Am branding we’ve seen within the industry through the years. in contrast to the TAG Heuer x Gulf Monaco, Breitling hasn’t exactly  Breitling B01 take on the classic Navitimer design had a wealthy historical past with this airline especially, so I will be inquisitive about seeing how properly it fares.
Regardless, that is a cool-searching watch. i’m able to’t assist however Swiss replica uk watches see a bit of racing have an impact on in this watch – I’m without delay reminded of the panda dials of the Chopard Mille Miglia – which doesn’t exactly match the mildew of an average aviation inspired watch. What I do see right here is a completely unique colorway, but strange the branding. at the same time as Swissair is simplest the primary in a sequence, it’s a tremendous start to an interesting course the logo is taking. charge for the fake Breitling Navitimer 1 B01 Chronograph 43 airways Swissair edition watch hasn’t been announced yet, however i would believe it’ll be right around the $8,500 mark – maintaining it consistent with previous 43mm stainless-steel models, and taking into account a piece of a top class for the collaboration and bracelet alternative.

cheap Breitling Premier Automatic 40 watches

Recently, Breitling announced a number of new models and even an entirely new collection of vintage-styled watches. Well, the Breitling Premier collection is “new” for the modern perfect Breitling watches brand, at least, as it resurrects a name from the 1940s. The collection includes a number of models including, naturally, many chronographs, but the new three-hand-and-date Breitling Premier Automatic 40 watch is the simplest of the bunch. Alongside the Premier Automatic Day & Date 40, it is also the most buy Breitling watches affordably priced.


The Premier collection is less part of Breitling’s hyper-masculine, air or sea military-themed personality, and rather all about “vintage styling,” “elegance,” and reminding us of the brand’s history. copy Breitling watches has been shifting in this direction since Georges Kern took over as CEO, but then again, the whole watch industry has been shifting in the “vintage” direction. The new Breitling Premier takes its name and “design inspiration” from the Premier watches introduced in the ’40s, although the five total cheap Breitling Premier Automatic 40 watches models that debut the collection do not represent the reissue of a specific historical model.


Breitling has a very convenient habit of putting the width measurement and other useful information in watches’ names. That is sometimes because it helps differentiate size options for versions of the same basic watch. The sale Breitling watches 40 is, of course, 40mm wide in steel, 11.4mm thick, and water-resistant to 100m. There are anthracite, blue, Swiss replica uk watches and silver dial versions with a bracelet and various strap options. Note that the seven-link bracelet is “oblique,” lending to a retro vibe, to my eye.


As is the case with other Breitling lines, the Premier collection includes models with in-house movements, specifically the Premier B01 Chronograph 42 that we saw hands-on here at its launch, as well as those with sourced movements. The Breitling Premier Automatic 40 is the latter, with the Breitling Caliber 37 which is the brand’s renamed ETA 2895-2. This is a small-seconds version of the thin and generally well-thought-of ETA 2892 automatic movement with a power reserve of around 40 hours and a frequency of 4Hz. Like all fake Breitling watches movements, it is a COSC-certified chronometer with a daily average accuracy within -4 to +6 seconds per day. You won’t be seeing the movement, however, as the Breitling Premier Automatic 40 has a solid caseback.


A 40mm watch is not big by any standard, nor is it particularly small in the wider world of watches – but for Breitling, the Premier Automatic 40 might seem almost petite. That said, replica Breitling watches name and personality loom large, and we should expect to inevitably pay a little more for that as well as the build quality and details the brand is known for. Regardless of dial color, retail prices in the US for the Breitling Premier Automatic 40 start at $4,000 on a nubuck strap and go up to $4,750 on a steel bracelet, with other strap options falling somewhere in between

Baselworld 2018: Breitling Novelties 2018

Even with the massive Navitimer 8 unveil barely behind us, we were kind of wondering whether Breitling would still deliver a healthy dose of novelties at Baselworld in 2018. And luck would have it, Georges Kern still had a few tricks up his sleeve that speaks to his new vision of the brand, and by and large, things are looking good for the future of the brand. Though one of the brand’s much larger release (both in media attention and in sheer physical size), the Navitimer Super 8, was unavailable during our press appointment, we still had a few gems to see and feel for the first time this year.
The name of the game is clear at Breitling for the first time Baselworld 2018: Breitling Novelties 2018 in a while—heritage is king, and the days of mega-sized watches is slowly fading into the background. Given the dwindling demand for larger 46mm+ timepieces, and the fact that the vintage market is still booming, the move is entirely logical. Thankfully cheap breitling watches heritage runs deeper than most, providing the much-needed legitimacy that is sorely lacking from many other brands who presently offer “vintage inspired” timepieces.


Case and point to the vision noted above, the Breitling has rolled out a very compact version of the classic Navitimer for 2018 in the form of the Navitimer 1 Automatic 38. While technically presented as a ladies’ piece, the model is already garnering attention from collectors from both sexes with a penchant for vintage timepieces. Available in stainless steel with either a black or blue dial, as well as the two-tone configuration seen here, this new automatic model is powered by a COSC-certified buy breitling watches Caliber 17 (not one of their in-house calibers) with a modest power reserve of roughly 40 hours. Given that the Navitimer 1 is the true heritage line of the collection we would have liked to see the brand move to an in-house caliber with this model, but it’s highly likely that this will happen in the coming years. Given the rising popularity of two-tone watches these days—a style that was a huge part of Breitling’s collection in the ‘80s and ‘90s—this addition to the collection make sense, though we suspect that either the black or blue variants will be slightly more popular overall.


fake breitling watches Superocean Heritage line got a proper refresh just recently, however, for 2018 the newest addition to the line is an important one; the addition of a B01 chronograph reference to the collection. replica breitling watches pride and joy, the B01 self-winding in-house column wheel chronograph caliber has been fitted in a 44mm Superocean case, and the end result is just about perfect. The moderately large case still wears well on smaller wrists due Breitling Novelties 2018 to its short lugs, and being a dive watch any concerns about case thickness are pretty much a non-issue. Sticking with the design cue first unveiled with the Navitimer 8, every model fitted with this caliber features contrasting subdials. As it stands, the watch will be sold with a black dial with cream subdials, a blue dial with cream subdials, and a silver dial with black subdial (effectively a panda-dial configuration. If anything, the latter of the pack I would file as the least appealing of the pack, but we don’t doubt the brands certainly appreciate it.
Though technically part of the Navitimer 8 launch in February, this is technically the first time the world timer version of the collection has been presented in the metal. To be frank, when first seeing the renderings I was far from convinced at how I would like this particular model, however seeing it in the flesh in this sunbrushed black dial with red accents, this is a perfect example of a situation where judgement should be reserved until the piece has been seen “in the metal”. This new release features the B35 in-house manufacture caliber from sale breitling  watches , which is COSC certified, and features a very healthy 70-hour power reserve. The 43mm case features a smooth brushed bidirectional rotating bezel, and an oversized crown that very much suits the piece’s overall utilitarian design. The white text indicating its cities are very legible against a black background, and it’s safe to say from a functional standpoint this particular dial color is the most legible of the pack by a landslide. By comparison, its silver dialed sibling, while still quite sharp from a visual standpoint, will require more care and attention when trying to read out the different Swiss replica uk watches time zones around the world. Priced at CHF7,900, the Breitling Navitimer 8 Unitime isn’t the most approachable world timer on the market, but considering its in-house caliber and other specifications the price is at least fair. Shown on a steel bracelet, this model can also be had on a black alligator strap with contrasting white stitching for CHF7,550.

replica Omega Iconic Modern Dive Watches

When texting with friend and fellow aBlogtoWatcher Zach Piña about the cheap Omegawatches  , he messaged me the above quote that I think perfectly encapsulates why I find this collection so special. Introduced in 2005, it seems like the Planet Ocean has been around for as long as many of us have been watch lovers and enthusiasts, as a staple in the brand catalog that fits in as comfortably as the Speedmaster. In this article I am going to go through the evolution of this luxury dive watch and track the various models, major milestones, and short but robust history of this luxury dive watch.


Of course, in modern replica Omega Iconic Modern Dive Watches history, the Planet Ocean came fairly late. The Seamaster Professional arrived in 1993 and was the watch first used in their second-greatest marketing feat (after the Speedmaster being the “Moon Watch,” of course). Indeed, the Seamaster Professional (SMP) adorned the wrist of Pierce Brosnan’s take on James Bond 007 in 1995’s Goldeneye (the Planet Ocean got this honor over a decade later in 2006’s Casino Royale). After the SMP 300 came Swiss replica uk watches the dressier Seamaster Aqua Terra in 2002, with the PO arriving in 2005 as the line’s higher end sibling and rounding out the collection.


Too often I find myself frustrated with the historical baggage so many watches I love are saddled with. What I mean by “baggage” can mean a lot of things: unwillingness to innovate because of a romanticized view of a piece’s history; watches focused on anniversaries or years commemorating landmarks; ad nauseam mention of iconic “effortlessly cool” celebrities who wore a watch 50 years ago (seriously, imagine it’s 1970 and watch enthusiasts are losing their minds over what Charlie Chaplin or Cecil B. Demille wore just before the Roaring Twenties). I love that the Planet Ocean line has to deal with none of this and can proudly present itself as a genuinely modern dive watch offering. It’s obviously important to note that that my points above are restricted to the Plant Ocean, not the brand as a whole because that’s an entirely different conversation altogether.

perfect Omega watches created the Planet Ocean to be a modern luxury dive watch that would compete with the “tried and true” comparable offerings like the Rolex Submariner. It’s also worth noting that the Seamaster line overall has always been intended as more of a luxury piece in the body of a solid tool watch rather than a tool watch that eventually found its way on the wrists of well-heeled watch lovers.
One point of note, I am going to keep this list to non-precious metal models and will also not go through the history of the Planet Ocean chronograph because that discussion, or any discussion of a non-Speedmaster chronograph from buy Omegawatches would require a thorough side by side look with the various Speedmaster references being made at any given point, and that is a very long conversation for another day. That being said, all the core references, along with the GMT models, and ultra-modern innovations like the Deep Black, will all be accounted for
The Planet Ocean was the first diver the brand outfitted with their calibre 2500 movement that featured a co-axial escapement, and it came in three variations when it was launched, which is hilarious compared to the 27 models and 109 variations I see in the catalog now, some thirteen years later in 2018. The first Planet Oceans came in either 42mm or 45.5mm, with a black or orange bezel. The color orange is the unofficial color of the Planet Ocean line, claimed to be one of the most visible colors underwater (a claim I have heard refuted a few times, actually), but I have a feeling the aesthetic stamp was alluring to sale Omegawatches as well.
