omegasea2210.jpg The Omega Men’s Seamaster Planet Ocean Chronograph Watch #2210.51.00 is built to join you in the deep blue depths. This self-winding chronograph timepiece features a column wheel mechanism and co-axial escapement movement with rhodium-plated finish movement for greater precision, stability, and durability of the movement, and a stainless steel case and bezel. The watch’s black dial is offset by red Arabic numerals, and luminous white hands and markers, and the black bezel features silver engraved second markers and Arabic numerals. The sub-dials with white hands and markers sit at the 3, 6, and 9 o’clock, and a date calendar sits diagonally at the 4 o’clock. The watch also features a stainless steel band with a dual locking fold-over clasp, and a domed, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal coated on the inside with anti-reflective treatment. Designed to join you in some serious skin diving and other water sports, the Seamaster is water resistant to 2000 feet. you can saved $1,100 by buying on Amazon - 1) bigger discount 2) no sales tax. First of all a warning about buying from Amazon. If you buy this watch at and Authorized Dealer, the co-axial escapment watches have a 3 year warranty. All other Omegas have a 2 year warranty. Since Amazon is not an authorized dealer, they replace the Omega warranty with their own warranty. However, they only provided a 2 year warranty. So I guess you lost a year of warranty for the $1,100 of savings. On a full wind, it usually stops keeping time after 30 or so hours. (closer to 30) That is pretty dissappointing. Because it is so big, you can’t wear it all the time. The Chronograph doesn’t allow split times. Once you stop it, then restart it, it doesn’t catch up - it just starts where you stopped it. Considering the Chronograph increases the price nearly $1,500 over the exact watch without it - that isn’t very good.

Also, it doesn’t really explain how you are supposed to keep track of long times. There is the second hand, then a dial that keeps track of 30 minute intervals, then a dial that keeps track of 12 hour intervals. So say you time somthing that is 1:01 minutes and 15 seconds. It is can look like 1:01 or 1:31. It kind of looks like the hour hand moves half a tick - but you would never get that from the instruction manual. So let’s just hope you never have to time something over 30 minutes.
