About Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Ultra Deep Watches
The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Ultra Deep collection is where Omega's unwavering commitment to pushing the boundaries of engineering and design reaches its zenith. The year was 2019 when Omega unveiled the Seamaster Planet Ocean Ultra Deep Professional, setting a new world record for the deepest dive ever recorded by a wristwatch.
The world record dive took place in the Mariana Trench, the deepest place on Earth. The dive descended to an astonishing depth of 10,928 meters (35,856 feet), reaching the Challenger Deep, the deepest part of the trench. This unprecedented feat was achieved by an innovative team of experts and divers, including adventurer Victor Vescovo, who piloted the submersible vehicle Limiting Factor to these depths.
The Seamaster Planet Ocean Ultra Deep Professional watch, affixed to the submersible's robotic arm, was subjected to extreme pressures and conditions far beyond what most watches could endure. Yet, it emerged from this remarkable dive unscathed and continued to function flawlessly.
Expanding upon the triumph of the Ultra Deep Professional prototypes, Omega unveiled the retail editions of the Planet Ocean Ultra Deep in the year 2022. Although marginally more compact than the initial prototype (the watches used by Victor Vescovo measured a staggering 55 x 28mm), these commercial iterations steadfastly retained their exceptional water resistance.
They now boast an astonishing capability of withstanding depths of 6,000 meters (approximately 20,000 feet), cementing Omega's status as a symbol of resilience and innovation in the world of horology.
Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Ultra Deep History
Omega's journey into the world of dive watches began in the early 20th century, a time when the demand for reliable and robust underwater timepieces was growing rapidly.
It was against this backdrop that the Swiss Marque released the "Omega Marine" in 1932. It was the world's first waterproof diving watch, created in collaboration with Swiss inventor Charles-Edouard Guillaume.
Omega continued to innovate, releasing the Seamaster Collection in 1948, which evolved to include sub-collections like the Seamaster 300 and the Seamaster Planet Ocean Collection in 2005, with a water resistance rating of up to 600 meters. Then, the audacious vision of explorer Victor Vescovo came on board, and so did the demand for more extreme underwater timepieces aimed at conquering the deepest points of the world's oceans.
Omega recognized the need to push the envelope even further and collaborated with experts in various fields, including metallurgy and materials science, to create something extraordinary. The result was a timepiece with an innovative case construction crafted from grade 5 titanium, which provided both strength and lightness.
The watch was rigorously tested to withstand extreme pressures up to an astonishing 15,000 meters below the Ocean's surface. It descended to an astonishing depth of 10,928 meters (35,856 feet), with adventurer Victor Vescovo reaching the Challenger Deep, the deepest part of the Mariana Trench.
Building upon the success of the Ultra Deep Professional prototypes, Omega released commercial versions of the Planet Ocean Ultra Deep in 2022. These watches, while slightly more compact than the original prototype, retain their exceptional water resistance. Subjected to authentic ocean trials, this remarkable series of dive watches are water resistant to 6,000 meters (20,000 feet) and hold official ISO 6425 certification.
