Omega Planet Ocean – ULTRA DEEP

Six models in the Omega Ultra Deep collection have been built in brand new O-MEGASTEEL. This high-performance stainless steel alloy once again proves OMEGA’s leadership in the production of advanced materials, with qualities that surpass the normal standard. O-MEGASTEEL is notable for its superior strength, whiter colour and incomparable shine. It also offers exceptional resistance to corrosion for a longer-lasting appearance

Mounted on each O-MEGASTEEL symmetrical case is a ceramic bezel with diving scale, as well as a protuberant and domed sapphire crystal,which is neatly bevelled and designed for maximum strength under pressure. A new crown guard is also integrated to the watch’s case, assuring protection when deep under water. Browse all Omega Planet Ocean watches currently for sale

The choices include white or gradient-effect dials, which transition from grey-to-black or
blue-to-black, and include a glossy finish as well as 18K white gold hands and indexes. Each piece includes a grade 5 titanium caseback with the same laser-engraved Sonar emblem and wording as the full titanium model.

Each design is completed by either a rubber strap or an O-MEGASTEEL bracelet. The rubber straps feature a technical diving suit structure on the upper surface, along with an O-MEGASTEEL buckle. For the metal bracelets, OMEGA’s patented extendable foldover rack-and-pusher has been included, with a complementary length adjustment and an extra diver extension – perfect for use around a thick wetsuit.

Depth Tested and Certified

Driven by the Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8912, all watches in this collection are
Master Chronometer certified at Switzerland’s highest standard of precision, performance and magnetic-resistance. What’s more, OMEGA’s Ultra Deep was ocean-tested at a depth of 6,269 m (20,567 ft) in the Mariana Trench in 2021.

The markings “For Saturation Diving” are included to meet the ISO 6425 standard for saturation divers’ watches which is certified by Switzerland’s independent testing body METAS – a premiere in the watch industry

2019 – to the Deepest Depths – 10,935m

In 2019, the very first Ultra Deep watches made history when they reached the deepest place on Planet Earth. In 2022, the technology that made the dive possible has been transformed into a game-changing 6,000 m collection available to the public. 45.5 mm models with high-performance materials and patent-pending designs, that represent the very pinnacle of OMEGA’s dive watch legacy.

In April 2019 three Ultra Deep watches joined explorer Victor Vescovo on a mission to the bottom of the Mariana Trench in the Pacific Ocean. Originally recorded as 10,925 m (35,843ft), the depth was later updated to 10,935m (35,876 ft) and is the deepest any human or watch has ever dived.

Two of the Ultra Deep watches were attached to the submersible’s robotic arm, while another was strapped to a data-gathering unit known as a Lander. Thanks to their ingenious build and design, all three watches completed the 12-hour dive without a problem and surfaced completely unscathed.
