OMEGA ensures the right timing during the Volvo Ocean Race
The Volvo Ocean Race 2017-18 is coming up and for the occasion partner OMEGA launches the Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M “Deep Black” in red. The Volvo Ocean Race is the world’s longest and most heavy sailing competition and the Races starts this year in Alicante, Spain on the 22nd October. For the sailing crew timing is everything and while they race against the clock OMEGA ensures accurate timing. OMEGA has always been connected to sports and therefor this partnership for the Volvo Ocean Race comes very natural.
The Seamaster Planet Ocean “Deep Black” is a remarkable 45.5 mm timepieces which is a combination of a GMT model and a diving watch. The addition of red represents the first colour that is no longer visible at a depth of approximately 5m. The watch comes with a self-winding movement with Co-Axial escapement.
The matt casebody has been crafted from a single block of ceramic and for the first time rubber has been blended with ceramic to create a unique unidirectional bezel. This colourful innovation can be seen covering the first 15 minutes while Liquidmetal completes the rest of the diving scale. Red rubber injections have also been used to colour the OMEGA logo on the crown and helium escape valve symbol.
Celebrate endurance with this fabulous new watch. Although it’s a men’s watch we love it for women too with the right styling.
