OMEGA Seamaster PO 600M Co-Axial Master Chronometer Chrono DEEP BLACK Volvo Ocean Race

I’m not a huge fan of these Volvo Ocean Race POs if I’m honest, their names are getting a bit too long, aren’t they - besides I find them a little garish, but that’s not to say they aren’t nonetheless impressive because they are.

In celebration of Omega’s continued role as the Official Timekeeper of the Volvo Ocean Race, this year’s PO Ref. is once again based on a PO Deep Black model and so boasts a 45.50 mm black ceramic case and bezel with red rubber 15 mins while Liquidmetal has been used for the rest of the dive-time scale.

More red rubber has been used for the chrono-pushers, the Omega logo on the crown, and for the He symbol on the Helium Escape Valve.

Its face is in brushed black ceramic with contrasting 18K White Gold hour-minute hands and markers. On the sub-dial at 3 o’clock, Omega has included a red Volvo Ocean Race ring that features the watch’s Limited Edition number as well as red-colored hands and number 12.

As well as having a Volvo Ocean Race logo on its solid case-back (unlike the GMT, no exhibition back), the watch includes a Master Chronometer Caliber 9900 and is presented on a black rubber divers strap with red stitching.

Owing to the famous race’s inauguration in 1973, just 73 examples of this OS have been made.
