The new Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Chronographs are among the best new watches to be announced for 2011. Like the 2011 Omega Speedmaster I wrote about earlier, the new Omega Seamster Planet Ocean features Omega’s new Co-Axial Caliber 9300 movement (itself the first in-house Omega Caliber to feature a chronograph function). I like the 45.5mm case size (smaller wrists can often wear this watch) and the orange “PloProf” (diver-style) mini-chronograph hand on the 3’oclock sub-dial is really a great touch. As well, the watch boasts the usual Planet Ocean diver features including 600 meter water resistance rating, unidrectional rotating bezel, helium escape valve — all of the high quality divers we have come to expect from Omega. The new Caliber 9300 chronos are available in the variations shown below, black ceramic or orange bezel insert.
