Omega Seamaster is one of those watches that has been around that feels like a lifetime. And you know that it is an amazing watch if it can stay around for that long. Yes, it has been around in the watch industry for over 65 years.
This quartz timepiece has an amazing caseback that is carved with the logo. A mechanical winding feature with bracelet and stainless steel case. On top of that, it is water resistant to 1200m and has phosphorescent hands. One can get different types of dials that come in silver, black or blue color with helium release valve, etc.
If you are currently looking for an Omega seamaster, you will be confused which one to choose from since there are so many of them available in the market. Every different model that you look at, has a different type of color, movement, bracelet and casing size. So, yes, you really have to be carefully and be picky if you are going for a certain model of the Seamaster. Planet Ocean, Planet Ocean Chrono, Aqua Terra Annual Calendar and Ploprof 1200M are one of the most popular models out there.
You can do the research about all of them and choose which you like the most and go for it. The great thing about the Seamaster is that you can never really go wrong with it. If you are looking for a classic gentleman look, or just want a casual watch that you can wear in parties, as well as while working in the office, you will be set with almost any Seamaster model.
But if you want the best one for you, here are a couple of things that are common about almost all the different types of Omega Seamaster models. Almost all of them have a similar chronometer, date and screw-in crown.
If you are not very well-versed into watches, let me give you details about all those things to have a better understanding of what we’re talking about here.
Screw-in crown: It’s basically a self-locking crown that is screwed in the tube of the case. This is to ensure that the watch is as water resistant as possible because most Seamaster owners love to dive while wearing these watches.
Chronometer: This is basically a certificate that the watch gets after it has gone through the accuracy test by the official body, aka, the manufacturers of the watch.
Date: One can see the movement inside the watch. Even though it might look transparent to the naked eye, it is actually made of sapphire.
Now you might asking yourself, why don’t they have something special for the men’s version of the Seamaster?
Well sir, there are a couple of things that might fancy you.
For instance, if you check out the Planet Ocean model, it has a helium escape value. This is where the decompression technology enables the helium to escape from the inner part of the timepiece when the watch is being worn.
Another thing that you can find in the Planet Ocean models is that they have a unidirectional bezel. Because these watches are being mostly used by people who love diving, the unidirectional bezel helps them measure their diving times accurately. This is because the bezel can only rotate in a single direction. Many divers accidentally rotate the bezel in the wrong direction and that causes them to misjudge their diving times.
If you are not a diving enthusiast, you can check out the Ploprof 1200 M which has a bi-directional bezel. This means that the bezel can be turned both clockwise and anti-clockwise. This feature is mainly for people who would like to time the events and read the second and third time zones.
