Omega Seamaster Ploprof 1200M Co-Axial Master Chronometer Replica Watches UK

First produced in 1970 and later relaunched in 2009, the Omega Seamaster Ploprof 1200M Co-Axial Master Chronometer replica watches UK – as it is today called – is one of the world’s most unique and, yes, iconic dive watches. It quite remains the Quasimodo character today, even among professional dive watches, which admittedly have a tendency of getting rather lairy-looking from time to time. But there is charm – and a lot of it – to go with the Ploprof and its, well, “developed taste” looks. This new model for 2016 – originally debuted in 2015 in different colors – is lighter, more rugged, and more refined than the Ploprof ever has been; so let’s see how it faired over an extended period of wear.

Here’s a contradiction. One would think that the luxury watch industry – with its self-imposed-luxurious price levels, exquisite movement decorations and delicate case finishing – has in every practical way detached itself from the original notion and practicality of its historical products, the very products it has taken as inspiration and elevated to those aforementioned levels of quality, refinement, and (un-)affordability.
Yet, Omega fake watches lovers around the world (including the one typing this) will forever love a strong connection between modern and historical pieces, and drift towards luxury watches that imply (or, in the case of the Ploprof: scream) “Purpose Built” at them. There is this almost intangible longing for a luxury product that says it can go deeper, faster, harder while being lighter, more robust and reliable than it ever was – even if their true purpose in life is to perform desk diving missions (a most descriptive term for their true use), and, sadly, in some cases to impress yahoos… All that enjoy utmost priority to actual technicalities like smartly releasing helium atoms through levels of decompression from deep-dive military tasks.

So, what’s a 55 by 48 millimeter wide, super weird, form follow function shaped, titanium and ZrO2 ceramic encased, 1.2 kilometer water resistant, anti-magnetic watch with a price tag above $13,000 doing in 2016? What it is doing is ticking all those boxes I mentioned: it mixes luxury levels of refinement with purpose-built looks. This doesn’t mean that it’s for everyone – how could it possibly be, when it’s so over the top? But new models added every year to the Ploprof collection prove that, thankfully, there is demand for this kind of stuff.

Omega Replica Planet Oceans Series Gold Case Rubber Strap Watches UK

When writing and talking about watches, we often throw around the phrase ‘wrist presence’. It’s one of the most indefinable, yet important,  aspects of any timepiece. It’s a sort of horological X-factor that incorporates style, size and, well, coolness. This titanium Planet Ocean chronograph has more wrist presence than I can comfortably handle, if I’m brutally honest. When it was shown to me at Baselworld, it was on a tray with a half-dozen other Omega Planet Oceans cheap replica watches UK, in all manner of colours and configurations. But this grey and orange beast from the deep virtually leapt off the tray and onto my wrist.

It’s a big watch – bigger than I’d normally wear – but by golly does it work on the wrist. That’s partly because the size is offset by the heavily tapered and exceptionally comfortable strap (and how cool is the, strap by the way – the woven look of the rubber and the contrasting stitching just pops). The other big bonus is that while the steel versions of this watch require you to do some heavy lifting, the titanium case of this model significantly cuts down the weight. The Master Chronometer certified calibre 9900, and innovative silicon nitride ceramic bezel with rubber inset complete the package.
