Woohoo Steve !!! What a SENSATIONAL review, and of course watch sir !
are right on with the whole design of this watch. ..Really IS perfect, and actually kind of
majestic in so many ways. Like you mentioned the brushed, along with polished sections
are definitely something to enjoy ! ..Omega could have left the surfaces one way, but
instead decided to show off what the watch actually is, and what they as one of the elite
watch companies are capable of doing. ..You just really get to see what TOP NOTCH
watch making is all about here.
The way the brushing, mixed with polishing helps
to show off the case shape is extremely ingenious. Again, they could have just left the
case one way, but because they didn't you see more shapes, more reflections, and
more detail about the case that Omega gives you with the Planet Ocean. Really have
to appreciate how on the one hand, the case is very prominent, and stands out as
an iconic watch case of today. While on the other hand, those brushed, and polished
sections along with the multiple cut angles make the case more subtle. Seemlessly
fading, or continuing right into the bracelet with ease. It's just TOO GOOD !
again it is an Omega, so it's really not a surprise I guess sir ! ..Also no surprise is how
GREAT the dial is as you also mentioned. Genuinely DOES look like a very easy to read
design. You have that iconic marker look where each one has that superb dive watch
marker shape, but also a fluctuating of size back, and fourth between them that helps
set this watch apart from other watches. It's very unique, along with just plain cool
how the 12, 3, 6, and 9 actually have smaller markers at their positions. However,
the way in which you have numbers, along with three of those positions is pretty
PHENOMENAL, and something that you are just not going to see on other watches
out there in the watch world. That arrow shape on the hands that you point out is
simply EPIC as well !!!
There truthfully aren't a ton of watches, or watch companies
that you can tell the watch by just lookng at their hands, but this would be one of
them, and you have it Steve ! Just love how from a distance you see this classic,
refined shape, and then as you get closer, and closer in on the hands you discover
the various shapes involved within them. Just seeing the sharp angles inside other
sharp angles, as well as the mixing of diamond shapes, and harpoon-like triangles is
again epic, and part of that majestic feel of the Planet Ocean in my opinion. There
seems to be a real flow to the watch. A combination of everything Omega has
learned over the many many years of watchmaking here with this one. Even the
deep black dial gives this amazing special effect with the markers, numbers, and
hands. Making it feel like a deep "ocean" or abyss ! ..In any case, it's once again,
..TOO GOOD ! Same goes for this bezel with it's modern/vintage style that brings
you back to the best of dive watch bezels past, but also to the future with it's ultra
cool finish, markers, numbering, and coin edge. Also want to just mention that this
case size couldn't be any nicer, or better for you Steve. 45.5mm on this one looks
just right as you said, and the bracelet pulls it ALL together ! What an epic, as well
as majestic looking watch sir. Congratulations, and as always ..I hope you enjoy it !
Epic watch, review, specifications, and photos sir. Thanks !!!
