Omega’s popular Seamaster line is joined by the Seamaster Planet Ocean Liquidmetal watch, which is limited to 1948 pieces, in memory of the year when the Seamaster line was created.
Judging from the appearance, the new watch seems have no big difference from previous models. But take a close look, you will find that the bezel of the watch is really something. And that is the biggest shining point also the selling point of the watch. The bezel itself is made of ceramic, while its numbers and scaling is presented on Liquidmetal alloy – a metallic material with a disordered, non-crystalline atomic structure. The Liquidmetal details just give off enchanting silver glow that lightens up the whole bezel. And it is reported that, Liquidmetal alloy is three times harder than stainless steel what the 42mm case is made from, and thus is particularly resistant to scratching and corrosion.
Beneath the thick convex sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both sides, there is a ceramic dial well matching the bezel. Thanks to the rich Superluminova applied on the hour indexes and hands, the dial stands out with excellent legibility in places of poor lighting. Obviously, Not a few improvements are done to make the dial more eye-pleasing with much better three-dimensional design.
Beating inside the watch is the Co-Axial calibre 2500 famous for long-term chronometric performance. The movement with 42-hour power reserve also features not a few parts made from ceramic and Liquidmetal alloy.
Benefit from the seamless structure composed of stainless steel, ceramic and Liquidmetal alloy, the watch maintains an impressive water resistance to 600 meters. And it is secured to the wrist by on a stainless bracelet with the Omega dual-pushbutton folding clasp.
From the corporate site : “More than twice the strength of Titanium with the processability of plastics, Liquidmetal alloys are poised to render obsolete current materials technology.” Liquidmetal technologies, is a creator of a new metallic, glass, substance that stores energy much better than stainless steel or Titanium.
