The Seamaster Planet Ocean 37.50mm, Caliber 8520
This year Omega launches the first Planet Ocean models with 37.50mm cases, ideally suited for women who want the technologically advanced mechanical movement and diving features offered by the collection but prefer to wear smaller watches. There are 37.50mm Planet Ocean wristwatches in stainless steel with either black or white ceramic bezels that sparkle with 42 diamonds with a weight of 1.55 carats.
These watches are powered by the co-axial caliber 8520 equipped with the Si 14 silicon balance spring.
The selection of straps includes a choice of black or white integrated leather. The 37.50 mm Planet Ocean watches in stainless steel are also available with bracelets in the same metal.
Along with the new Planet Ocean collection, Omega announced its collaboration with Yann Arthus-Bertrand to create a film about the Earth’s oceans, to raise awareness of what can be done to protect them.
Asked why Omega chose to work with environmentalist/filmmaker Arthus-Bertrand on the project, brand president Stephen Urquhart said, “No one could do it better. Yann Arthus-Bertrand is both an environmentalist and the world’s leading specialist in aerial photography. He has a unique combination of skills that will allow him to communicate the majesty and the beauty of the oceans cinematically.”
Arthus-Bertrand said of his partnership with Omega, “We will work together to create a film which meaningfully reflects the beauty of the oceans and reminds everyone to save these amazing sources of life.”
At the same event, Omega announced that it has entered into a partnership with GoodPlanet, an organization founded by Arthus-Bertrand. GoodPlanet has established a strong reputation for its dedication to the promotion of sustainable development.
Omega and GoodPlanet are establishing an initiative that will help to raise awareness of the need to protect the oceans by showing their beauty and explaining the challenges humankind and the oceans are facing together. They plan to collaborate on the production of books and materials that will focus not only on the majestic splendor of the oceans but will also educate people about what might be done to preserve them.
