In 2005, Omega added the Planet Ocean to the Seamaster line of dive watches. The new offering boasted double the water resistance of the original Seamaster Pro and a more robust design overall.

Omega offers 5 variations of the Planet Ocean model. For the purposes of this post, KeepTheTime is going to cover the top 3 most popular versions. The ladies 37.5mm and the chronograph have been left out, perhaps for another post.

In the photo above, we lined the models up according to size: biggest to smallest from left to right.

Planet Ocean XL

  • Thickness of 17mm
