Released earlier this year, the Seamaster Planet Ocean “Deep Black” Collection represents the evolution of ceramic watchmaking. Evolution because Planet Ocean Deep Black is a combination of GMT model with a diving watch. As a result, Omega has created a stand-alone collection of “Deep Black” watches that are state-of-the-art.
The black-ceramic-cased models also come in four different executions, each with Master Chronometer certification. Take a dive into the deep black Planet Ocean video below.
The Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black Collection
The Planet Ocean Deep Black collection is differentiated by four colors (black, gold, blue, and red). In a first for Planet Ocean, a single block of black ceramic forms the case body of each watch. Chemical formulas are used to mark on their ceramic cases, while zirconium dioxide is used on the lug and also on the dial. The 45.5mm case seems to fit nicely on most wrists.
In addition, each dial has a new GMT ring attached to it, while each model’s diving scale is built directly into the ceramic bezel using markers and numerals made with Liquidmetal or Ceragold.
Planet Ocean Deep Black (Red & Blue)
Blue or Red vulcanized rubber are mixed directly into the ceramic bezels, or mark the 15 minutes dive time indicator. Their cases and dials have matt finishing to allow better visibility underwater. The hands and the 12, 6, 9 indication colors are done in the same fashion as well.
Why the colors red and blue? According to Omega: “Dive to 5m and red is the first color to disappear, blending stealthily with a diving suit. Go deeper to 275m and the last color you can see is blue”. Then at a depth of 300m, everything goes black, except the Seamaster Deep Black’s Super-Luminova glow.
Planet Ocean Deep Black (Black & Sedna Gold)
On the other hand, the Black and the Sedna gold versions feature ceramic cases and dials polished for a glossy effect. For the gold version, Omega uses its 18k Sedna gold that emphasizes the hands and indices. Comparatively, the other 3 Planet Ocean Deep Black uses 18k white gold instead.

OMEGA’s new patented ceramic Naiad Lock keeps the engraved wording perfectly positioned, so the case back is even easier to admire. As the watch is a Master Chronometer, it is armed with METAS certification; Omega’s latest magnetic resistance to 15,000 Gauss (just like the Omega Tresor Master Co-Axial and Aqua Terra). The Omega 8906 caliber not only supports GMT function but also has a time zone function as well.
Overall, the Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black Collection has a defying technology, yet still looks beautiful and perform brilliantly as well. The Planet Ocean Deep Black price is around $10,700, while the Sedna Gold edition cost about $14,500.
