https://www.crmjewelers.com – Omega Watches – Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Mens Watch Review
Omega watches have a bit of a cult following, just like Rolex.
This is actually our first Omega watch review. The exact model that I’m reviewing is the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean, a watch from my own personal watch collection.
I like to think of the Omega Seamaster, which is a diver’s watch, as the Submariner line for Rolex, and the Omega Speedmaster, as the Daytona, both car racing inspired watch models.
Even though the first original James Bond watch was a Rolex (the Submariner worn by Sean Connery in the 1962 Agent 007 thriller “Dr. No”), Omega eventually took over as the watch of preference of the infamous British spy. The James Bond movies actually went a long way into helping Omega build the notoriety that the watch brand enjoys today.
One thing about the Omega Seamaster watch is that it is BIG! With a 45.5mm case diameter, the stainless steel Planet Ocean’s weight is enough to bring the wrist of many a collector to his knees! That’s the main reason why my Omega Seamaster spends most of it’s days in my watch safe!
The watch is a very nice looking diving watch with a chronograph function. It has a manual helium escape valve (as opposed to Rolex’s automatic escape valve) and a dial I find quite attractive.
Omega has always been a very big sponsor of sporting events. In fact, Omega was a sponsor of the most recent 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.
In addition to this watch, when it comes to Omega mens watches, I also like the new, all-black, ceramic Omega Speedmaster. Even though I’ve never owned one, I do find it quite attractive.
Prices for the Omega Seamaster Watch
Even though the retail price for the Omega Seamaster is $7,200, I would personally aim to buy the watch pre-owned close to $4,000 or less. The thing is that, even though Omega watches have as much brand recognition as Rolex, they do not preserve their value as well as Rolex watches do. If you can find the Seamaster in the price area that I mentioned above, then it would definitely make a good starter or entry-level watch for your collection.
So what are your thoughts on the Seamaster or on Omega watches in general? Is Omega a go-to brand in your collection? Let me know in the comments section below.
