Omega Planet Ocean 600m Review & Why It’s A Great Value

If I had to criticize this watch it would be its hands. I’m not the biggest fan of the arrows but I’m not everyone and this watch is a giant hit to many. It’s hard and maybe impossible to find the perfect dive replica watches for sale so we may be getting a bit nit picky here. Some would argue the hands add to the legibility but I personally prefer something a little less subtle.

The indicies on the dial are spot on. They are raised and highly polished which adds to its elegant design. Arabic numerals accompany the incidies at the 12, 6, and 9 o’clock positions with the a date window appearing in the 3 o’clock position. The combination is executed flawlessly.

The movement housed in the Omega Planet Ocean 600m is the in-house Calibre Omega 8800. This calibre is part of the Master Chronometer in-house movements by Omega. I own this movement and I can attest to its accuracy and reliability. Omega has taken their movements beyond stand chronometer certifications to include improved accuracy under high stress environments that include magnetism. The calibre 8800 has a gauss rating up to 15,000 and can maintain normal accuracy during those intense conditions of magnetism. Power reserve has been a large upgrade compared to older Omega movements. This movement has a power reserve up to 55 hours. Other quick specs on the movement include accuracy of 0/+5 seconds per day, 25,200 vph, free sprung silicon balance spring, and 35 jewels.

The Omega Planet Ocean collection is revered by many and rightfully so. These dive watches are true diving instruments that combine both design and functionality. We were fortunate to be able to spend four days with the Blue Omega Planet Ocean 600m 39.5mm watch provided by Moyer Fine Jewelers. During our time with this watch we confirmed much of what we already thought, which was the Omega Planet Ocean 600m is absolutely stunning.

I’m an owner of the Seamaster 300m so I’m no stranger to Omega dive watches. Upon handling the Planet Ocean 600m blue dial I was initially very impressed. To be honest I do view my Seamaster as the better replica watches usa, both function and design. Yes I know the Planet Ocean can double the dive depth but hardly anyone is going a 1/10th of that distance below the water.

We’ve done a full hands on video review on YouTube. Check out our Omega Planet Ocean 600m Review & Unboxing Blue Dial.

For this hands on review of the Omega Planet Ocean 600m we had the pleasure of handing the blue dial. The blue dial is considered by many to be the most desirable out of the collection. Like all true dive watches, time must be legible at a glance and in low light conditions. For this watch that is no issue. We did a great job during our video review showing a great lume shot.
