At the recent meeting Omega has announced the launching of the Seamaster Planet Ocean Liquidmetal Limited Edition, world’s first union of ceramics and Liquidmetal.
The watch model has been opted for an entirely new approach. Together with Swatch Group researchers Omega’s product development team united seamless ceramic diving bezel, made of Liquidmetal alloy incredibly resistant to corrosion and scratching.
Liquidmetal alloy is a bulk metallic glass consisting of five elements: zirconium, titanium, copper, nickel and beryllium. Its fusion temperature is half the titanium alloys, when it is cooled, its three times harder then stainless steel. The amorphous structure allows it to bond seamlessly with the ceramic bezel. The process begins when ceramic rings are formed. The numbers and the fine lines of the minute scaling are then engraved into these ceramic bezel rings and polished. The alloy is heated and pressed into the cavities in the ceramic material after which any excess Liquidmetal is removed.
The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Liquidmetal Limited Edition has a stainless steel case and bracelet. Inside of the ceramic is metal (Liquidmetal), for the minute indicators on the watch model bezel. There is also the lume dot at 12 o’clock. The Liquidmetal numbers and scales are then satin brushed. Because the ceramic is a harder material than the alloy, the satin brushing of the fine details can be done without affecting the ceramic bezel. The numbers and scaling then appear in bold, vivid contrast to the glossy ceramic background.To get the beautifully seamless look that you can see here on the bezel of the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Liquidmetal watch.
The watch is driven by Omega’s revolutionary Co-Axial calibre 2500. Chronometer certified, drastically reduces the friction among the parts that transmit energy to the other components. The result in reduced serving requirements for the movement, and thus greater precision over time.
The hero product is available is in a limited edition of 1948 pieces in honor of the year Omega launched its popular Seamaster watch line.
