The recently released Summer Blue Edition of the iconic OMEGA Seamaster PLOPROF 1200m watch features a solid mono-bloc case in O-MEGASTEEL and sun-ray brushed blue dial. The OMEGA Ploprof (from PLOngeur PROfessionnel – French for “professional diver”) is one of the most robust and innovative divers’ wristwatches ever made.
The new Summer Blue Edition Ploprof takes its design cues from OMEGA’s original model, which arrived on the market in 1971. The bezel ring is a sapphire crystal, to mirror the chemically reinforced monolithic crystal used in those early versions. This transparent crystal, varnished blue on the back, reveals the light blue diving scale beneath.
The iconic monobloc case includes the famous screwed-in crown and the characteristic security pusher at 2 o’clock, which on this edition sports a ring in blue ceramic. A perforated blue rubber strap completes the 70’s look.
This extreme diving OMEGA Seamaster PLOPROF 1200m watch houses OMEGA’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer 8912 self-winding movement with a power reserve rating of 60 hours. Its case-back has a laser-engraved commemorative Seamaster logo, framed by engraved waves and depicting a trident-bearing Poseidon and two seahorses: OMEGA’s 1956 original and the brand’s current design.
Reliable even at 4000 feet beneath the waves, the famous Ploprof has a long history as one of OMEGA’s most trusted divers’ watches.
While retaining the original sturdy and bold appearance, this new edition has been updated with OMEGA’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8912, featuring revolutionary technology renowned for its anti-magnetic resistance, chronometric performance, and precision.
The unique case combines 18K Sedna gold along with grade 5 titanium for lightweight comfort. Sedna gold has also been used on the hands and indexes, with Super-LumiNova for increased visibility. Completing the look, a polished blue ceramic bezel has been added with OMEGA Ceragold numerals, as well as a blue lacquered dial.
The sophisticated style of this watch clearly recalls the dark colours of the ocean, and the polished titanium “sharkproof” mesh bracelet further adds to the sense of exploration and adventure. The OMEGA Seamaster PLOPROF 1200m watch is delivered in a special presentation box along with an additional dark blue rubber strap.
