In 2019, Omega launched the largest and highest-performance version of its modern Seamaster Planet Ocean watch with a model known as the Ultra Deep. This watch is widely seen as Omega's answer to the Rolex Deepsea Challenge.
Over-Engineered Diver's Watch
The Ultra Deep watches are rated at having 6,000 meters of water resistance, which is a considerable amount more than most other diving watches on the market. While it is unlikely that anyone will ever need that much water resistance in a watch, it is still a impressive feat of engineering.
The Ultra Deep is available in two case materials: titanium and steel. The titanium model is lighter and has a more matte finish, while the steel model is heavier and has a more polished finish. Both models are 45.5mm wide and 18.1mm thick, with 22mm wide lugs.
The Ultra Deep is powered by Omega's in-house made Caliber 8912 "Co-Axial Master Chronometer" movement. This movement is METAS-certified and operates at 4Hz with 60 hours of power reserve.
Comfortable and Cool Looking
The Ultra Deep is a large watch, but it is surprisingly comfortable to wear. The NATO-style strap or rubber strap help to keep the watch snug against the wrist. The steel bracelet is not as snug, so it may not be the best option for people with smaller wrists.
The Ultra Deep is not a cheap watch. The steel model is more than double the price of the next largest Planet Ocean, which is the 43.5mm model. The titanium model is also significantly more expensive than the 43.5mm Planet Ocean 600M in titanium.
The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Ultra Deep is a large, bold watch that is sure to turn heads. It is also a very capable diving watch, with 6,000 meters of water resistance. If you are looking for a high-performance diving watch that makes a statement, the Ultra Deep is a great option.
The Ultra Deep is available in four different dial colors: white, blue-to-black gradient, blue-on-deep blue, and black-to-gray gradient with orange accents.The Ultra Deep is a limited edition watch, with only 6,000 pieces being produced.The Ultra Deep is a great choice for anyone who is looking for a large, bold watch that makes a statement.
