Orange and blue is back in the new Omega GoodPlanet PO! The in-house caliber 8605 is a great movement, and we really enjoy this GMT/Planet Ocean Combo. When we saw the introduction of this blue and orange beast at Basel, it just seemed to be perfectly designed watch aesthetically and movement-wise. This big guy still measures in at almost 44mm which is fine, but we might find the masses enjoy 42mm. However, for this model the larger size works and works well.
The orange was a long time coming with ceramic bezels and will be a great seller. Coming in at just over $8,000.00 the price range is still reachable for many dive watch lovers and has the bonus of the GMT. Dual functionality makes this a excellent travel watch and vacation watch to boot.
OMEGA has committed a portion of the proceeds from this Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M GoodPlanet to fully funding a project to preserve the mangroves and seagrasses in Southeast Asia and educating the local population about the conservation of these important natural resources that are such a critical part of a balanced eco-system.
