This is the watch you buy when you know something about watches
Simply stunning watch. The new 8500 calibre takes this heritage watch to new levels making it a direct competitor to Rolex especially towards their Deep Sea Dweller and Sub range.
The watch is made of high quality steel, has a cut crystal glass domed front achieving a water resistance of 600 meters. The new 8500 now has a crystal back to show off the new inner workings which can only be described as watching a mechanical heart beat.
The strap is strong and very masculine which includes a divers extension for those looking to test it's deep sea features.
Overall, this is a luxury watch for someone wanting to make a statement about knowing their watches. Its style lends itself as a dress watch but it's rugged good looks and hardwearing materials make it something worth showing off on a daily basis.
Some people have been slightly put off by the new high prices of the Planet Ocean, but don't let this put you off. You'll be buying a watch that has been engineered to the highest of standards that only a few watch brands in the world can achieve.
Stop thinking about it and do it...

Good enough for 007 :)
Owned this watch for two and a half years and still love wearing it. Anyone who knows anything about automatic movements will know what to expect in terms of gain/loss of time. This was my second Omega and I will be buying another very soon! Please don't let one bad review put you off, although unfortunate, in my experience, it is certainly not the norm.
