Steel on rubber strap
Note: watch no longer available
This watch is a tribute to American swimming legend Michael Phelps, the most successful Olympian of all time.
Cased in stainless steel with a blue ceramic [ZrO2] and rubber ring, it features a uni-directional rotating bezel, in polished blue ceramic, with orange rubber for the first 15 minutes. The striking polished white ceramic dial has blued applied indexes and an Arabic numeral 12 in orange.
The screw-in, wave-pattern caseback, engraved with "PLANET OCEAN", includes a "Michael Phelps" logo etched in chronium. Powering the watch is the Master Chronometer Calibre 9900, which can be seen through the sapphire crystal caseback.
The watch is presented on an integrated blue structured rubber strap with blue-orange rubber lining and orange stitching, and limited to just 280 pieces in recognition of the legendary Olympian's 28 medals.
The movement is unaffected by exposure to strong magnetic fields, even those greater than 1.5 tesla (15,000 gauss).
Complicated watch with a function for measuring short time periods in addition to its function for permanently displaying hours, minutes and seconds.
Label given to a watch which has undergone precision tests and received a certificate from an official body (COSC).
