It’s the traditional Planet Ocean colour and with the ceramic white dial, and it seems to be to be an actual stunner. I personally personal this Planet Ocean that shares a case, motion, and so forth., with this new mannequin and might converse solely extremely of it. In fact, I’m now significantly contemplating including this full-orange bezel Planet Ocean to my assortment.
Visually, one can look again on the first Planet Ocean mannequin that had an aluminum orange bezel and even the uncommon Platinum GMT mannequin as references, however Omega has opted for a a lot brighter orange now. It’s much less “orange” just like the fruit and extra a vibrant, fiery orange — far more so than the 15-minute orange part of my Planet Ocean bezel. In reality, Omega is patent-pending on this new orange ceramic bezel ring.
