Omega Watches – Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Mens Watch Review

https://www.crmjewelers.com – Omega Watches – Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Mens Watch Review

Omega watches have a bit of a cult following, just like Rolex.

This is actually our first Omega watch review. The exact model that I’m reviewing is the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean, a watch from my own personal watch collection.

I like to think of the Omega Seamaster, which is a diver’s watch, as the Submariner line for Rolex, and the Omega Speedmaster, as the Daytona, both car racing inspired watch models.

Even though the first original James Bond watch was a Rolex (the Submariner worn by Sean Connery in the 1962 Agent 007 thriller “Dr. No”), Omega eventually took over as the watch of preference of the infamous British spy. The James Bond movies actually went a long way into helping Omega build the notoriety that the watch brand enjoys today.

One thing about the Omega Seamaster watch is that it is BIG! With a 45.5mm case diameter, the stainless steel Planet Ocean’s weight is enough to bring the wrist of many a collector to his knees! That’s the main reason why my Omega Seamaster spends most of it’s days in my watch safe!

The watch is a very nice looking diving watch with a chronograph function. It has a manual helium escape valve (as opposed to Rolex’s automatic escape valve) and a dial I find quite attractive.

Omega has always been a very big sponsor of sporting events. In fact, Omega was a sponsor of the most recent 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.

In addition to this watch, when it comes to Omega mens watches, I also like the new, all-black, ceramic Omega Speedmaster. Even though I’ve never owned one, I do find it quite attractive.

Prices for the Omega Seamaster Watch

Even though the retail price for the Omega Seamaster is $7,200, I would personally aim to buy the watch pre-owned close to $4,000 or less. The thing is that, even though Omega watches have as much brand recognition as Rolex, they do not preserve their value as well as Rolex watches do. If you can find the Seamaster in the price area that I mentioned above, then it would definitely make a good starter or entry-level watch for your collection.

So what are your thoughts on the Seamaster or on Omega watches in general? Is Omega a go-to brand in your collection? Let me know in the comments section below.

Thx for the review Eric, really nice and with James Bond music in the background just perfect. The Seamaster planet ocean it´s really one of my favourites from Omega too, but i prefer the Co-Axial Master Chronograph with rubber bracelet.

Thomgxx100 says:

The piece on display happens to be a diver chronograph, regardless, the PO has some serious heft to it and it remains the absolute best alternative to the Submariner. I simply love mine (Liquidmetal 1948 piece limited edition) and it always makes me feel absolute equal to any Sub wearer regardless of the price difference.

Rob Logan says:

Omega is coming out with the new ceramic Planet Ocean Deep Black.  Very nice watch, check it!

Omega Love says:

Too bad this is a very old (pre-ceramic) model. Newer lines of Omega are much more beautiful with better( in house made) movements. Also you should mention omega has different sized PO’s. 42 and my favourite 43.5 GMT
Keep up the good work my man

Thomgxx100 says:

My best advice to everybody – Should you by any chance stumble over a first generation Planet Ocean, BUY! BUY! BUY!, now is a good time to buy, eventually those pieces will be in high demand !

Koji Takata says:

Erick I think you should do a comparision between the Speedmaster vs Daytona!

toobalkain says:

Imho this is the ugliest Seamaster, the third subdial is just an overkill, looks awful. Also looks better with at least the 12 in orange.

Maurie Barnes says:

Great review. I have the Speedmaster Mark II which is a great piece but you are right about the weight on these Omega’s they are ‘heavy metal’ for sure.

Rodney Thomas says:

Great video Eric…BTW I would never picture you as an Omega type guy, I actually like Omega a lot but, didn’t think you would be into the brand due to some of the higher end brands you reviewed.

Michael Lee says:

Once again, great video man! Keep losing focus towards that beautiful white gold YM2 you got on tho :p

Ghujvan'Dumènicu Ghjuvan'Dumènicu says:

Nice watch!My fav Omega is the speedmaster 397mm,s.steel or rose gold.

mazubamful says:

Aaaaaaaaaaand I just bought this last week…after owning a speedmaster for a year….both great watches…always respected your reviews Eric…nice one!!!

theZombieSlayerSxg says:

So does this mean we might see you cover a Breguet at some point?

Kato 忍者 says:

why u say a 7 grand watch is for beginners ? to to be advanced u must waste over 50k Really?

dima rabiner says:

Seamaster 300m blue dial is way way better!

King Ridez says:

Ok so check for Omega … But im still Waiting for a Breitling review…

lancer7610 says:

Make a review of the seamaster 300 vs the rolex submariner please

Kato 忍者 says:

Did you really pay 7 grand for That watch?

britewire s says:

I have the SeaMaster 300m Chrono pro (swordhands) now for about 5 years. The seamaster’s are watches you could beat a bull to death with and they won’t show a scratch. The Seamaster is my daily wear. About your comment on the weight, the Deep Sea is heavier than the Seamaster 300m. I don’t know about the Planet Ocean though.

avalonmed11 says:

I had the Planet Ocean 600m Chronograph 45.5 and holy cow it was big and heavy. I sold it, which I should not have, because it was not comfortable on my 18 cm wrist. It was a quality watch, though.

Arturo Navarro says:

hey eric what´s your favorite watch?

Robin Love says:

What a surprise Eric, this is my daily watch! 🙂 I think it´s good to have a chrono and a diver in one watch, you can use it at the gym to count the rest time between sets and then go swimming.

Eduardo Abrão says:

rolex or omega?

Maq Shar says:

Omega wow, now we have something that fits our budget. Thanks Eric.

Gijs Timmermans says:

eric can you do the other seamaster planet ocean 600m

Shafir Iqbal says:

Nice watch…. love the music also. Happy new year guys to all those that find the ‘happy’ in the new year- God willing.

M.Poorvesh Muthraman says:

Do a video on the Speedmaster series.

MICKEY MICHAEL says:

Can you please review Piaget watches. Thanks love your channel

Introduce Forex says:

Awesome Seamaster video Eric!

Marc Goldberg says:

Just my two cents but if you want to enter the luxury market, I would buy the Omega after you’ve saved up and already gotten the Rolex.

jewbacca says:

+CRM Jewelers Hey Erick, what watch are you wearing in this video? Looks like some sort of Rolex but I can’t tell… Thanks in advance!

Michele Calò says:

Excellent review, Eric. I think what makes Omega really important in the watch market it’s for the “moon watch” thing. The Speedmaster was the first watch that astronauts wore in the 1969 mission to the moon, then as you said James Bond did his part with the Seamaster.
Keep up the good work!
Michele.

z00h says:

So would you say you’re a bit of a size queen?

The SilverPhist says:

offen found of the wrist of a quare….

Keekee Fries says:

I’d buy that watch under $4k, beautiful piece. BTW, Omega has been the official timekeeper for the Olympics since the 1930s, and yet they still don’t get the recognition that Rolex gets.

d lamp says:

spot on man, how do you feel about the 41mm master co-axial seamaster for a young man’s first watch?

DJKingMagneto #1 says:

Ya got Me with the helium escape valve, Very Nice Watch!. Puts Me in Mind 007!.
Thanks!!!!!.

Dan Alvarez says:

I love Omega watches, especially the Seamaster. Great job Eric!

itsKibble Talks Watches says:

Great video! Love the watch 😀

Edgar Flores says:

Great vid Eric, can u please do A review on Corum Admirals cup Chrono…

Rich Guy says:

Great vid Eric, can you please review top five watches serve as pussy magnet

hopey1809 says:

About brand recognition: Here in Germany Breitling has a way higher status than an Omega Watch. But nonetheless still a great brand!

The Omega Speedmaster Grey Side of the Moon is one of the most beautiful watches ever made.

Eric you mentioned the Darfk Side of the Moon, but it looks very cheap in real life. The polished dial shines like a fucking mirror. I was very disappointed by that.

Arthur Scargill says:

It’s a pretty looking watch but if I were buying a Seamaster today I’d either be looking at a pre-70’s Seamaster 300 or the heritage inspired latest version: they just reek of class. Anyway, thanks for the review Eric, I could listen to you talk about watches all day. Take care.

10000000peso says:

Nice review  45mm  wow,   doesn’t look that big…..

Stephen Leslie says:

That yacht Master two you have on is one of my favorite watches. I love the platinum Watch bezel with the white gold bracelet

Gary Smith says:

Hi Eric, I appreciate your videos. You tend to provide your opinion rather than a review of the watches. I know you’re keeping the videos to a specific time limit but any chance you could put the watches on your wrist?
