OMEGA launches limited edition Planet Ocean watches in celebration of Sochi 2014

In February of 2014, in the Russian Federation city of Sochi, OMEGA will assume its Olympic Games timekeeping responsibilities for the 26th time, and is looking forward to Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games marked with tradition, culture and the spirit of modern Russia.

To commemorate these unique Olympic Games, OMEGA has created two special editions of its Seamaster Planet Ocean wristwatches to commemorate the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. The OMEGA Seamaster Planet Ocean “Sochi 2014” watches have been created in ladies’ and gents’ versions, each in an edition of 2,014 pieces.

The OMEGA Seamaster Planet Ocean 45.5 mm “Sochi 2014” Limited Edition

The gents’ watch has a 45.5 mm brushed and polished stainless steel case and a matching bracelet. Its unidirectional rotating diving bezel is fitted with a matt black ceramic ring with a chromium nitride divers’ scale. The white dot at 12 o’clock on the diving bezel is followed by blue- and red-lacquered markers for minutes 1-5 and 6-10, respectively – a tribute to the flag of the Russian Federation. True to the Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M design, minutes 11-16 are also indicated on the bezel in a subtle silvery lacquer.

The timepiece has a brushed screw-in caseback embossed with the “Sochi 2014” Olympic logo and engraved with “Si14” and the limited edition number (0001/2014). There is a helium escape valve located at 10 o’clock on the case.

The applied indexes on the matt black dial and the polished, facetted rhodium-plated hands are coated with white Super-LumiNova emitting a blue light. The exception is the minute hand which emits a green light, as does the dot at 12 o’clock on the diving bezel. This feature makes it easy for divers to keep track of their time at a glance. The timepiece has central hour, minute and seconds hands and there is a date window at 3 o’clock.

The Seamaster Planet Ocean 45.5 mm “Sochi 2014” Limited Edition is powered by the OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 8500, the movement that has defined the way mechanical watches are being made in the 21st century. The movement is equipped with the brand’s exclusive Si14 silicon balance spring and the result is a timepiece so reliable that OMEGA delivers it with a full four-year warranty. The watch is water resistant to 60 bar / 600 metres / 2000 feet.

In 1932, when OMEGA presented the Marine – the world's first watch divers’ watch – the product designers would have been pleased to know that more than eighty years later, the brand is still synonymous with underwater timepieces. But they may have been surprised to learn that the women who enjoy adventure are among the most avid fans of the Seamaster Planet Ocean.

The OMEGA Seamaster Planet Ocean 37.5 mm “Sochi 2014” Limited Edition shares the same robust qualities and the professional divers’ features with the model in the gents’ collection but it has some distinguishing highlights that will make it one of the most appealing souvenirs of the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games.

The 37.5 mm brushed and polished stainless steel case has a white ceramic unidirectional rotating bezel with a diving scale. As with the gents’ version, the minute markers at 1 through 5 are lacquered in blue while minutes 6 through 10 are lacquered in red.

This timepiece, ideally sized for women, has a brushed screw-in caseback embossed with the “Sochi 2014” Olympic logo and engraved with “Si14” and the limited edition number (0001/2014). There is a helium escape valve located at 10 o’clock on the case.

The applied indexes on the lacquered white dial are coated with white Super-LumiNova emitting a blue light as are the polished, facetted rhodium-plated hands. The minute hand and the dot at 12 o’clock on the diving bezel both emit a green light. This feature makes it easy to read the elapsed time at a glance. The timepiece has central hour, minute and seconds hands and there is a date window at 3 o’clock.

The Seamaster Planet Ocean 37.5 mm “Sochi 2014” Limited Edition is powered by the OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 8520, a member of the brand’s family of exclusive Co-Axial movements. Its Si14 silicon balance spring is anti-magnetic and particularly resistant to shock and external disturbance. The reliability and outstanding timekeeping performance over time allows OMEGA to deliver the watch with a full four-year warranty. Like all Seamaster Planet Ocean wristwatches, it is water resistant to 60 bar / 600 metres / 2000 feet.
