At Baselworld 2016, Omega replica watches UK finally delivers on their promise to update the popular Seamaster Planet Ocean collection with “Master Chronometer”-rated, in-house-made movements. This is also the first major update to the Seamaster Planet Ocean collection since the debut of the 9300 movement-based Seamaster Planet Ocean Chronograph watches in 2011. In this article, I go hands-on with the updated Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Master Chronometer Chronograph, which is very much like the outgoing model, but with an upgraded movement and some overall design updates and refinements.
Omega isn’t exactly sure what it wants to call this watch, apparently. The two official names are “Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 45.5mm Chronograph fake watches” and “Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Master Chronometer Chronograph.” Perhaps both are right, or perhaps there is another official name. In any event, the watches are really nice, even though there might not be seriously compelling reasons for owners of the outgoing generation Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Chronograph watches to upgrade.
Omega actually didn’t release any totally new models at Baselworld 2016, but rather updates and extensions. That isn’t per se a bad strategy, and it is a good idea for them to improve the value proposition of their existing family of watches. Nevertheless, no one would argue that Omega lacks SKUs or product families. For this year, the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean collection is most notably updated with a movement that is now a “Master Chronometer.” This basically means that the movement goes through the extensive METAS testing in-house at Omega, and that compared to the outgoing 9300 movement the new caliber 9900 (9901 on the precious metal case model) has the highly antimagnetic properties which make Master Chronometer watches resistant to 15,000 gauss.
The 9300 movement Omega replica watches UK family was already one of the best movements Omega ever made (something that Omega even admitted a short while after they released it). The 9900 should prove even better, and continues to be beautiful and visible through the large sapphire crystal caseback on the watch. Again, recall that it isn’t common to have exhibition caseback windows on 600m water-resistant dive-style watches.
