OMEGA Seamaster Planet Ocean Chrono Cal.9300/9301

By TLex OMEGA extends the Planet Ocean family with the new Planet Ocean Chronograph Calibre 9300/9301. As with all Planet Ocean models the new PO Chronos are equipped with unidirectional rotatable divers bezels and helium escape valves. Their 45.5mm cases have a water-resistance of 60 bar or 600 meters. From the exterior the new chronos boast some attractive new styling details; there's choice of either a matte black ceramic or orange matte aluminum bezel insert and a fantastic new set of mini-plongeur hands for the chronograph's 3 o'clock sub-dial.




However its under the hood where the real action is taking place with the inclusion of an exclusive OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 9300/9301 in-house movement, which combines the Co-Axial escapement and free sprungbalance for a level of reliability that has allowed Omega to offer a 4-year warranty. It is also the first in Omega's family of in-house movements to incorporate a chronograph function. The performance of this extraordinary movement can be observed through its sapphire crystal exhibition caseback.
