SEAMASTER PLANET OCEAN CASINO ROYALE LIMITED EDITION

15 November 2006 - Even whilst relaxing on the beach, only the best is good enough for James Bond, an ethos perfectly reflected in his choice of diving partner. The Seamaster Planet Ocean Casino Royale is a potent combination of technical complexity and aesthetic elegance.

The Planet Ocean model is identified by its distinctive bezel, which recalls the original Seamaster 300 metre models, albeit with a choice between classic and highly contemporary interpretations of this historical theme. Meticulous attention to detail resulted in a slightly different bezel design with a model taking on a resolutely sporty look. The unidirectional rotating bezel has minute graduations for the first fifteen minutes, numbers for the subsequent ten-minute sectors and a luminous triangular marker at 12 o’clock. Other features indicating that this is a professional divers’ watch are the watertight screw-in crown, a screw-in case back and the helium escape valve (located at 10 o’clock and embossed with “He”). The Seamaster Planet Ocean is water resistant to 600 metres (2000 feet).

The matt black dial also offers excellent clarity, thanks to applied luminous hour markers and Arabic numerals at 12, 6 and 9 o’clock, with date window at 3 o’clock. The facetted arrowhead hour and minute hands also have luminous SuperLuminova inserts, and a luminous arrowhead seconds hand with orange tip offers ultimate visibility down to the last second. Beneath the surface is Omega’s calibre 2500 Co-Axial Escapement movement, which is a COSC-certified chronometer and has a power reserve of 48 hours.

The Seamaster Planet Ocean Casino Royale is available with a 45.5 mm diameter case and a black rubber strap. This Limited Edition has exclusive features: the central second hand bears the “007” gun logo in orange, that recalls the code name of the famous MI6 secret agent. The stainless-steel case back is embossed with the “Casino Royale” logo as well as the series number of each Limited Edition watch.

Limited to 5’007 pieces, the Seamaster Planet Ocean “Casino Royale” will be a perfect collector’s item for all James Bond aficionados.
