Sure, you’ve heard of black, but have you heard of “deep black”? You have now, thanks to premiere watch brand Omega, who has just unleashed a collection of watches so unique the company had to invent colour names just to talk about them. And what is “deep black” you ask? It’s the colour of the patented black ceramic that forms the insanely durable case body for each watch in Omega’s Each Seamaster Planet Ocean “Deep Black” Collection.
Put simply, these watches are truly state of the art. That’s because the Planet Ocean Collection has built its reputation on an ability to endure the pressures and conditions of deep sea dives. Accordingly, the “Deep Black” watches are good for up to 600m and loaded with tech and features that divers will relish–features like a fully-tested Master Chronometer calibre 8906, which resists magnetic fields of 15,000 gauss.
If “deep black” is a little too intense for your taste, then by all means consider the red or blue versions for stealth and underwater visibility. For these models, the colours actually change the deeper underwater you go, eventually giving way to black except for the Super-Luminova feature.
Few companies combine the thrill of exploration with the straightforwardness of a timepiece the way Omega does. Furthermore, they incorporate such great design that these are watches you should check out regardless of any intention of going diving. Who knows? Maybe you’ll get inspired to plunge the ocean depths.
