Omega was determined to dive deeper into the art of ceramic watchmaking and inspired by the success of the Planet Ocean Deep Black from 2016. The brand wanted to make a combination of a GMT and dive watch made of one block of blue ceramics. This has led to the mens fake omega uk Seamaster Planet Ocean Big Blue.
Ceramics has been used in the watchmaking since the mid-1980s. This is mainly due to the pioneer efforts of the Swatch Group.
Ceramics is six times as hard as steel. It never scratches, discolorates or bleeds, making it an ideal material for the functional requirements of even the most robust watches. Omega used ceramics for the first time about eight years ago in the shape of a small triangle on an ornament in the Seamaster Planet Ocean collection. From that moment on, the material was increasingly incorporated into new creations of the brand.
Since that first little triangle, Omega ceramics have been integrated into many other designs. It can be found in lunettes, dials and complete wardrobes. For a modern ceramic Speedmaster, the cabinet is first pressurized from a special zirconium based powder. During a sintering process it is then heated to a temperature of 1400 ° C, making it hard and scratch resistant. Because it is so hard, diamond tools are needed to add the definitive edges and slots while lubricating and cooling with high pressure oil solutions. Finally, a three-hour plasma treatment in an oven at 20,000 ° C prepares the material for the laser engraving process.
The omega replica europe Speedmaster ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ was the first model with such a complete ceramic cabinet. Then followed models like the ‘White Side of the Moon’ and Gray Side of the Moon ‘. The “Big Blue” features the distinctive Planet Ocean Colors blue and orange and has the very first omega replica watches for sale cabinet made entirely of blue ceramic. In addition, the watch has a blue ceramic dial with orange GMT marks. The 18K white gold pointers and index markers feature a white layer of Super-LumiNova; They beautifully protrude against the blue dial. On the blue ceramic lunette there is a diving scale with figures of Liquidmetal® numerals. A mix of orange rubber and ceramic is applied during the first 15 minutes. The OMEGA logo on the crown and the symbol for the helium vent valve are provided with rubber injections of orange color. The back of the Big Blue is also impressive with its alveolendessin screw cap. This is a unique innovation of OMEGA, a patented ceramic Naiad Lock, with the engraved text remaining in a position.
