OMEGA addicts, good news! OMEGA has announced the launch of the Seamaster Planet Ocean Liquidmetal Limited Edition, the world’s first watch to bond ceramics and Liquidmetal. The Liquidmetal alloy is an amorphous metal a metallic material with a disordered, non crystalline atomic structure. Its fusion temperature is half that of conventional titanium alloys but when it is cooled, its hardness is three times as great as that of stainless steel. Its amorphous structure allows it to bond seamlessly with the ceramic bezel.
OMEGA Seamaster Planet Ocean Liquidmetal timepiece will be a limited edition of 1,948 pieces, that number being a nod to year in which the first Omega Seamaster made its debut. As with other Planet Ocean automatics, movement is the OMEGA 2500; as many know, this is the proven ETA 2892 base modified for the innovative OMEGA Co Axial Escapement.
The OMEGA Seamaster collection enjoys an all new innovative addition to the family with the unveiling of the Planet Ocean Liquidmetal Limited Edition Watch. The claim to fame for this particular timepiece is based on its special ceramic bezel which is further accentuated with a patented Liquidmetal process which creates a seamless bonding with unparalleled hardness and durability.
