Omega launches the Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black

Seamasters have been part of Omega’s collection for decades, and it was 2005 when Omega first added the Planet Ocean watches to the Seamaster roster. Planet Ocean timepieces are designed to be true divers watches and now, just three months after Baselworld, Omega has announced four all new Planet Ocean timepieces.

The Speedmaster is no longer the only ceramic Omega you can get your hands on. We're partial to both the blue and red references.

Omega teases Planet Ocean Master Chronometer

BaselWorld 2016 is still a while off but Omega has already sent word that it will be showing a Planet Ocean 600M Master Chronometer. This is said to be a lady’s model, and it will feature a 18K Sedna-gold case, and a chocolate-color ceramic bezel and dial.

The Swiss are known for their watches, and for their chocolate. This is most certainly a watch but you also get a chocolate color dial that looks delicious.

Review: Omega Seamaster Bullhead Rio 2016

The Seamaster Bullhead Rio 2016 that you see here is part of Omega’s long running Olympics collection. We first heard whispers about it after Baselworld 2015, and Omega officially announced it a couple of months after the world’s largest watch show. This watch, reference 522.12.43.50.04.001, is limited to just 316 pieces, and we recently had the opportunity to spend some quality time with it.

The Bullhead rides again, this time as part of Omega's Olympic collection.

No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to die!

The Seamaster has been associated with the James Bond films since 1995’s Golden Eye, when Pierce Brosnan first assumed the role of the super spy. Since then, Seamasters haven’t been far from Mr. Bond’s wrist, and for the forthcoming Spectre film, Daniel Craig will once again show off Omega’s handiwork.

Since its association with the James Bond franchise, Omega has released limited edition (LE) watches to celebrate the films and commemorate anniversaries, and that tradition continues with the new film. The Omega Seamaster 300 ‘Spectre’ Limited Edition watch is the second, new, James Bond watch, and it is limited to 7,007 pieces.

Daniel Craig is reprising his role as James Bond for the third time with Spectre.

Omega introduces its new Seamaster Bullhead Rio 2016

Omega has a long history of associations with events, organisations, and people of celebrity. In fact, one of its oldest associations is with the Olympic Games, for which it has been the official timekeeper since 1932. It’s an association that continues to date, and ahead of the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics, the Swiss watchmaker has released a new tribute watch, known as the Seamaster Bullhead ‘Rio 2016’.

The name is Terra, Aqua Terra

In December last year, the script for the forthcoming twenty-fourth James Bond film, titled Spectre, was leaked. Despite this and several other issues that arose during filming, Spectre is still expected to premiere towards the end of the year, at the previously announced date of November 6.

While fans of the suave spy will have to wait in suspense, watch lovers are more fortunate, as Omega’s new James Bond watch has just broken cover. Say hello to the Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M James Bond Limited Edition.

We’re anticipating several limited edition watches from Omega at Baselworld this year, including new limited edition Speedmaster moonwatches.
