Omega Planet Ocean Chrono

Don’t get me wrong – I love the new Omega Planet Oceans. Ceramic bezels, display backs, more technically advanced movements – these are all very good things about the new POs.

But there is still a soft spot in my heart for the older, aluminum bezel PO. It s chunky watch (probably no more than the new PO chrono) and you need a decent wrist to pull it off. But this is a tool watch through and through, and the grey matte dial, applied Omega logo at 12 and the interesting date aperture at 4:30 make this watch one of my favorites.

Make sure to check out my video review of this timepiece.


WHAT I LIKE:

  • Older-school Planet Ocean – like the aluminum bezel vibe
  • The color-matched chrono pushers (black on my watch)
  • The grey matte dial

NOT SO MUCH:

  • It’s a chunky watch
  • Seamaster deployant buckle seriously prone to scratches
  • The big & boring rehaut has always bothered me
  • The 3313 movement is controversial (although mine has had no issues)
