Omega Ploprof Co-Axial Master Chronometer

The Seamaster Ploprof Co-Axial Master Chronometer is the second watch in the Omega collection to be a Master Chronometer. Discover the watch and the story behind the Master Chronometer …

 

Good news from Omega!

I have been presenting you the Omega Constellation Globemaster, the first Master Chronometer, officially tested by COSC and METAS, recently. In case you did not read my story yet, I recommend you to do so. Just click  >>> HERE <<<  to get to it.

Of course the Globemaster would not be the only watch to be certified as a Master Chronometer. Omega will from now on add more and more models to its collections. The goal is to certify all watches as a Master Chronometer in a couple of years. By the way, in Basel in March during Baselworld 2016, Omega will present its new totally antimagnetic calibres. Those of you who are familiar with the Omega calibres know that not yet all of them have been transferred to be fully antimagnetic. For Omega the Master Chronometer is not a marketing gag, but serious business. The brand will be the first Swiss manufacturer to have only fully antimagnetic calibres in its different watches.

 

The legendary and absolutely cool Omega Seamaster Ploprof is now gentled to be a Co-Axial Master Chronometer.

 

The technically upgraded watch now is named Omega Seamaster Ploprof Co-Axial Master Chronometer.

Being Omega´s most water-resistant diver´s watch thus far, the Ploprof was used and tested by COMEX, the French underwater research and exploration company, for four years before it was released and launched to the public in 1970. Ploprof stands for “Plongeur Professional“; French for “professional diver”. In 2009, it was reintroduced in a modern version water-resistant to 1200 meters / 4000 feet and featuring an Omega Co-Axial calibre.

The Omega Seamaster Ploprof Co-Axial Master Chronometer comes in a 55 x 48 mm titanium case. The latter diminishes the weight of the huge diver dramatically.

The Omega Seamaster Ploprof Co-Axial Master Chronometer now is powered by the new Omega Co-Axial calibre 8912, resisting to magnetic fields even bigger than 15.000 Gauss. The entire watch is officially certified as a Master Chronometer. Omega offers a guarantee of four years.

Two case versions: A grade 5 titanium case in combination with a grade 5 titanium / ceramic bezel or a 18 carat Sedna gold / ceramic bezel. One my choose one out of four dials: white, blue or grade 5 titanium dial.

 

In Austria the prices have been fixed at 15.000 Euro for the version with the Sedna gold bezel and 10.500 Euro for the version with the titanium grade 5 bezel. The prices mentioned include 20 % VAT.

 

The first pictures I want to show are those I took last year at Baselworld 2015 from the Omega Seamaster Ploprof Co-Axial Master Chronometer
