The standard maximum depth traversed by scuba divers is about 130 feet (39 meters). Well-respected dive watches are rated to around 660 feet (220 meters). Most submarines have a projected maximum depth of around 2,250 to 3,000 feet (675 to 900 meters); anything further than that, and their hulls will crush and collapse.
We’ve said all that to say this: The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Ultra Deep watch is rated to be water-resistant to 20,000 feet (6,000 meters). No, you did not misread that, and yes, it is incredible beyond comparison. To even test these groundbreaking watches, they had to be strapped to the outside of Victor Vescovo’s record-breaking deep sea vehicle.
At this point, would it even matter how the watch looks? Probably not, but these have the same bold Omega looks that have made their timepieces collector’s items since the brand’s founding in 1848.
