Watchmaking and chocolate are two of Switzerland’s most luxurious icons. And for this latest creation, OMEGA has melted the two together in one sensuous timepiece.

With its luscious brown colour, The Planet Ocean 600M Master Chronometer is at the forefront of craftsmanship and style. As the name suggests, the model has been updated as a Master Chronometer, the industry’s highest standard of certification. For women, this is among the first ladies’ timepieces to attain the impressive METAS-approved rating.

To see the innovative movement itself, wearers can admire the new calibre 8801 through the sapphire crystal caseback, complete with an oscillating weight crafted from 18K Sedna™ Gold.

This is, in fact, the first time that 18K Sedna™ Gold has been used for the Planet Ocean collection. The material has also been used for the case, hands and indexes, as well as the foldover clasp on the strap.

And to perfectly complement the soft reddish tone of the metal, OMEGA has created both the dial and bezel from chocolate brown ceramic. The colour is both rich and appealing, bringing yet another dimension to the Planet Ocean collection. On the bezel itself, Ceragold™ technology has been used to create the numbers and new minute markers of the diving scale.

At 39.5 mm, this model is wider than some previous models, but has allowed for a slightly thinner case. Another aesthetic update can be found on the caseback, where a new undulating pattern offers a subtle yet captivating change.

Finally, this watch is presented on a brown leather strap with a rubber underside for a sporty and comfortable combination.
