BaselWorld 2013 Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean GMT GoodPlanet

The Planet Ocean is one of Omega’s great success stories from recent years. Introduced in 2005, this watch took design cues from vintage Seamaster 300’s and quickly became a collector’s favorite. In 2011 it was upgraded to incorporate the wonderful caliber 8500, a see-through case back and numerous other upgrades. Now, for BaselWorld 2013, Omega introduced the first Planet Ocean to feature a GMT function: the Planet Ocean GoodPlanet.

The Planet Ocean GMT GoodPlanet uses a bold color scheme: deep blue for the dial and (ceramic) bezel, paired with bold orange for the GMT-hand and -numerals. The result is an exciting combination: eye-catching, but never over the top. The only other Planet Ocean offered in blue are the Liquid Metal-versions.

GoodPlanet you’re asking? Quote from Omega:

The GoodPlanet Foundation, founded in 2005, strives to inspire every person on Earth to live lifestyles that respect our shared environment. The organisation promotes optimistic solutions for sustainable development and wholeheartedly encourages each individual to act for the planet.

OMEGA and GoodPlanet formed their partnership in 2011; together they aim to raise awareness of the beauty and majesty of the oceans, the dangers they face and the importance of preserving and appreciating these natural resources. 

OMEGA has committed a portion of the proceeds from its Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M GoodPlanet to fully funding a project to preserve the mangroves and seagrasses in Southeast Asia and educating the local population about the conservation of these important natural resources that are such a critical part of a balanced ecosystem.

The Planet Ocean GMT is driven by the caliber 8605 co-axial GMT movement, one of the latest additions to Omega’s manufacture movement line-up. Not only is this movement finished with much care and detail, but it is also very easy in daily use and set the time and switch between timezones. This watch is presented in a special box made of bamboo.
