To start with, the Swiss Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean ‘PyeongChang 2018’ Olympics Watch Replica comes in a familiar 43.5mm stainless steel case which is water-resistant to a healthy 600 meters and also features a manually operated helium escape valve at 10 o’clock. Although the helium escape valve is not a function which watch wearers would use often, this vestige remains. The hour markers are presented in the form of applied rhodium-plated indexes with Arabic numerals at 12, 9, and 6, and being a serious dive watch, the indexes along with the entire handset have been applied generously with Super-LumiNova.
The Planet Ocean line of watches from Omega comprises some visually striking and technically innovative dive watches, and the Swiss Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Watch Replica feels right at home in this respect.
The dial on the Omega Seamaster Watch Replica has been rendered beautifully in polished blue ceramic (that’s what the “ZrO2” on the dial refers to), which together with subtle hints of red in a few instances resonates with the Olympic theme of this watch, and representing the colors of the host country’s flag.
The 2016 Olympics in Rio got the Omega Watch Replica, and Omega has now shifted focus to their more upmarket Planet Ocean line of watches, offering the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean watch in a new blue and red colorway, paying a tribute to the flag of South Korea.
