Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean: The Best Dive Watch Value? View Preowned Watches For Watch Collectors

Contact Team Mosso for pricing and availability; Either I have it, or I can get it! Email: tmosso@thewatchbox.com Phone: 610-632-5307 The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean stars on today’s episode of “Weekend Watches!” Today, we pit a first-generation Planet Ocean against a spectacular and rare gem-set Rolex Submariner 116659SABR. It’s blue-collar vs blue sapphires on today’s exhibition of luxury preowned watches from the world leading WatchBox inventory. Omega launched the Seamaster Planet Ocean in 2005. The 600-meter dive watch was intended as a flagship for the long running Seamaster model line and a rival to Rolex’s mighty Sea-Dweller diver. The 45.5mm stainless steel Planet Ocean featured today was retailed in 2007, and it includes all of the characteristics that lead many watch collectors to cite the first models as their favorite generation of Planet Ocean divers. At 15.3mm thick, this Seamaster is one of the thinnest Planet Oceans ever offered. The solid caseback and early caliber 2500 movement permits a far thinner profile on the wrist than later display caseback models with caliber 8500 bases. With a 48-hour power reserve, COSC Swiss chronometer certification, and a co-axial escapement, this diving watch is well equipped for action below or above the waves. The matte black dial with applique indices and printed tri-Arabic numerals includes several elements designed to reference vintage Omega Seamasters from the late 1950s and early 1960s. Omega’s 600-meter divers – dormant since the 1970s – made a comeback with the 2005 Planet Ocean. For good measure, Omega includes the helium escape valve from its popular Diver 300M watch series. Watch collectors who prefer a more exotic dive watch will thrill to the inclusion of the rare 2018-2020 Rolex Submariner 116659 SABR, a white gold Rolex Sub set with 3.90 carats of blue sapphires and 1.72 carats of diamonds. • 24:19 Audemars Piguet Jules Audemars Chonograph 26100BC.OO.D002CR.01 $21,950 o ivory dial, tachymeter, white gold, deployant clasp • 02:58 Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Self Winding 15500ST.OO.1220ST.01 $49,950 o Stainless steel, blue dial • 00:34 Bulgari Octo Finissimo Automatic 103431 o Satin and polished stainless steel, blue dial, 100-meters o Not priced yet: email tmosso@thewatchbox.com for a quote • 09:34 F.P.
