Omega has set a new record for the deepest diving watch with its new Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Ultra Deep Professional wrist watch after strapping it to the outside of the submersible of explorer Victor Vescovo as it went to the bottom of the Mariana Trench. The Omega Seamaster dive watch was subjected to pressures of 1,085.10 ATM (15,946.5 psi) as they reached a depth of 10,928 m or 35,853 ft, making them the deepest diving watches in history.
“Designed to withstand enormous pressures, OMEGA’s Seamaster Planet Ocean Ultra Deep Professional is packed with full ocean depth technology yet is surprisingly slim and light at less than 28mm. The expedition logo is located at the center of the caseback inside concentric circles evoking the Multi Beam sonar technology used by The Five Deeps Expedition team to map the Ocean Floor. Relevant information including the model, reference number, DNV-GL certification, maximum tested 15,000m depth and materials are all laser-engraved.”
