The OMEGA Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M range of watches is a fine reminder of the brand’s maritime tradition, and the implicit trust placed by divers and sailors on the Seamaster range of professional diver’s timekeepers. Launched in 2005, the Planet Ocean line under the Seamaster collection includes features and movements that make the range a class apart from its peers.
Every inch of the Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M OMEGA Co-Axial 45.5mm (model no. 188.8.131.52.01.001) watch exudes resilience and reliability, and has been made for use by divers and regular men alike. Design-wise, it features a 45.5mm stainless steel case, with a prominent and sturdy uni-directional turning bezel construction in ceramic. The case has a sapphire crystal lens to protect it from scratches and accidental bumps. In addition to its scratch-resistant feature, the lens also sports an anti-reflective coating on both the sides for an improved reading. The hour-markers found in this model are presented in both Roman numerals and indexes, giving the watch a greater versatility not found in any other model. Even the hands of this model are finely polished, which go a long way in enhancing its appearance. A date window appears at the 3 o’clock spot of this model. Made of stainless steel, the bracelet is a showcase of the brand’s resilience without compromising on a comfortable fit.
The mechanism that the watch runs on is the Co-Axial calibre 8500, which lends the watch with durability, precision and reliability not found in any other watches. When not in use, this model offers a power reserve of 60 hours. The OMEGA model is water-resistant to a depth of about 600 metres, and can handle all kinds of water sports with ease. Further enhancing its water-resistivity is its screw-in crown design that fastens into the case in a highly secure manner. The ceramic bezel, besides serving the purpose of pointing out time, also protects it from any kind of impact. For a safe diving experience, and to prevent the watch from sustaining damage, the helium-escape valve design construction enables an easy release of excess helium gas.
Launched in the year 1948, the Omega Seamaster Collection was inspired by the waterproof watches made toward the end of World War II for the British military. The watches in this collection have acclaimed worldwide fame due to their combination of exceptional stability and awe-inspiring designs. These watches are ideal for serious underwater sports and adventures.
This collection features several amazing series under it. First introduced in 1957, the Seamaster 300 Master Co-axial features the same dark dial, symmetrical case, big numbers and hands, and lighter indexes like its predecessor. The Planet Ocean 600M Collection showcases several watches with stunning designs and exclusive Co-axial movements. The Aqua Terra 150M Gents’ collection is easily recognizable because of its “Teak Concept” pattern on the dials. The Seamaster Aqua Terra Ladies’ Collection was the first to be equipped with the cutting-edge anti-magnetic Omega Master Co-Axial calibres. Available in lacquered black or blue dials, the Diver 300M Collection showcase white skeletonized hour and minute hands. The Ploprof 1200M is equipped with Co-axial caliber 8500 and is water-resistant up to 1200 meters. The winding crown located at the 12 o’clock position, surrounded by the two chronograph pushers at its sides; give the Bullhead collection its unique name.
In the James Bond movies since the release of GoldenEye in 1995, the character has consistently worn an Omega Seamaster. The Omega brand ambassador, Michael Phelps, an Olympic swimmer and multiple times gold medallist, wears the Seamaster Planet Ocean.

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.
