Black beauty: OMEGA Deep Black collection
OMEGA has unveiled its Deep Black collection, the new generation of Seamaster Planet Ocean timepieces. The watches, a dual utility timepiece for diving and GMT, were created using the brand's signature know-how including liquidmetal and Sedna gold.
The 45.5mm timepieces were made from a single ceramic block, including the bezel and dial. For the bezel, rubber has been mixed in for the first time ever, resulting in a one-of-a-kind creation. The dial features hands and indexes that were made from Sedna gold or white gold and have been treated with Super-LumiNova to allow them to glow green and blue in darker environments.
The four colours – red, blue, black and gold – have been carefully selected to reflect the ocean lover's adventures; gold to symbolise luxury on the deck of a boat, red to signify the first colour that fades as you dive deeper, blue as the last colour visible before diving deeper than 275m before the ocean turns black beyond that. Even the black rubber straps have been given extra attention, specially designed to mimic the look of fabric.
The OMEGA Deep Black collection will be in OMEGA boutiques across the Middle East from October 2016.
