Omega to Commemorate the 36th America’s Cup with the Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M
Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M America’s Cup
Swiss luxury watch manufacturer Omega is launching a new product to fall in line with the 36th edition of the America’s cup. The company, which is serving as the timekeeper for the event, created a celebratory edition of their Seamaster watch in a new color scheme. The Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m for this year is a tribute to the sailing event and an inspiring look for watch enthusiasts worldwide.
The 43.5 mm case is made out of stainless steel. The special edition uses patriotic colors including red white and blue in a diving bezel insert. In addition, there are white and red markings to complete the color scheme. The colored hands have red numerals around 12, 6 and 9 o’clock, 3 o’clock and throughout the date window. The American shades continue through the strap and they are made from a red edge lining, blue rubber and white stitching.
The movement on the watch is powered by Omega’s creation of the master chronometer calibre 8900 and a co-axial power reserve capable of deploying 60 hours of power. The device is resistant to magnetic fields as well.
The blue face and the striking professional logo as well as the 600m water resistance, makes this a truly astounding product for any collector.
As an iconic sailing watch, the colors and the look of this product are sure to make it a collectors item. It is limited to just 2,021 units as well. The 600m edition will be taking pre-orders which should be selling out quickly. The retail value of the watch sits at $7,050 US and it is only available for purchase on the Omega store at this time. Be sure to watch for the release falling closely in line with the 36th edition of the America’s Cup.
