I have now had the pleasure of enjoying this watch since mid-july. Mine was bought at Ethos Ludhiana and the staff, specially Mr Ralhan were very helpful all the way, from the order to the delivery. When you get the this Planet Ocean in hand, you are at first glance in no doubt that this is an Omega.
The case at a glance, leads one to think of the classic Speedmaster, though the diameter here is markedly larger. The watch i acquired, has a case of entire 45.5 mm in diameter. So-called "over-sized" watches are in vogue these years, and it reflects in the Planet Ocean range also, as the other popular size it comes in is 42 mm.
The design of the hands is known from previous models, as last seen in Broad Arrow. Though in the Omega PO, both hands end with an arrowhead, and not only the minute hand. The numbers on the dial also has a design reminiscent of classics from Omega. Generally one can say that the design of Omega PO is very classic, and in my opinion, very successful. The combinations possible with leather straps makes this appeal to many and it can easily be used as a dress watch. With rubber strap, this watch has a look that signals "Beater watch", and hopefully, one should not forget that this is a serious diver, although most people use it as a daily/regular wristwatch.
The overall quality impression of the watch is very good, and there is nothing to put a finger on regarding the finishing of the watch- this is exactly as we know from other Omega models. Combine it with a rubber strap, and it is really very comfortable to wear. The bracelet of this watch has a satin-like surface, and the familiar Seamaster folding clasp. This is a sturdy buckle triggered by two push buttons, and therefore is not going up by accident.
Omega caliber used is a 8500, which is a manufacture caliber
The calibre is a co-axial movement, also known from the new Seamaster Aqua Terra models. The co-axial escapement decreases, according to Omega, the friction of the clock, providing better reliability and accuracy in the longer term. The watch I have keeps time to -1 seconds per day, I'm sure you'll agree that this is excellent timekeeping.
It usually requires a large wrist to wear a watch with a diameter of 45.5 mm, but this may partly be met if the horns of the watch are slightly pointing diagonally downwards. This is right in the case with the PO, and therefore the requirement for wrist size for the watch to fit properly, is the just a bit over standard wrist. The thickness of the watch creeps close to 2cm and as the case is made of stainless steel this makes the whole package feel very solid and very heavy. Though the case is very large, it does wear a little smaller than its heft would suggest, but it remains an imposing timepiece. Staying with the case, another thing that is easy to notice is that the finish of the case is second to none in this segment.
The dial is incredibly easy to read, has applied indices and the luminosity is superb in the dark. Planet Ocean is considerably above average with its bright lume. The omega logo is polished and applied. As is the brand name. This serves to further enhance the premium feel of the watch and are very pleasing to the eye as it catches the light. A divers watch is easy to read is considered a big plus.The bezel is easy to turn, due to the grooves on the edge. the back is a sapphire crystal, designed much like a ship's port hole, through which the owner may gaze at a nicely decorated movement in operation. This is a nice, if superfluous touch as many owners will enjoy marveling at the engine of their watch in motion.
On the whole a hugely satisfying premium package with incredibly enhanced finishing and feel. This is every inch the luxury diving watch and Omega have landed firmly at the doorstep of their competition.
