In 1932, Omega was the first to introduce the world’s first diving watch-the Marine series. This watch was used as a military timepiece for the Second World War. In 1948, the Seamaster series of professional diving watches was born. The “Submariner” watch series was born in 1953 and is the first watch to be waterproof to a depth of 100 meters.
This article compares the Rolex Submariner Date to the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M.
Since the birth of the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M series in 1932, the style has changed a lot and there are many colors to choose from. So you need to be patient to buy a Seamaster replica watch.
However, the Rolex Submariner Date is the opposite. His overall style has not changed, and the appearance has only a color change. Only internal small details have been improved. So when you buy Replica Rolex, you only need to know that you like that color.
For the same performance, the price of the Rolex Submariner Date is around $7,500, and the price of the Omega Planet Ocean 600M is around $7,000. Of course, the price of the special style will be higher. Overall, the price advantage of Omega Aqua Terra is even greater.
Both the Replica Rolex Submariner Date and Replica Omega Planet Ocean 600M use a movement made by their own company. The Planet Ocean 600M uses an anti-magnetic replica Omega coaxial movement 8900 calibers. The Rolex Submariner Date uses a 3135 caliber. Both movements have been certified by the Swiss Observatory. The difference is that Rolex’s 3135 movements passed the “COSC”, and Omega cooperated with the “Swiss Federal Metrology Institute” to produce “METAS”. I am not sure which COSC and METAS are more powerful. However, the 8900 movement has a stronger anti-magnetic capability than 3135.
The case size of the Rolex Submariner Date is 40 mm and the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean is 43.5 mm. The Planet Ocean 600M is larger in diameter and thickness than Rolex. Rolex uses 904L stainless steel and Omega uses 316L stainless steel. 904L stainless steel has better corrosion resistance and better gloss. There is also a detail, the bottom of the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M is transparent, you can see the internal movement.
Both watches use a ceramic bezel. However, the Submariner Date uses the Cerachrom ceramic outer ring and the Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M uses the LiquidMetal bezel. Many friends have said that LiquidMetal has better corrosion resistance.
The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M uses Super-LumiNova luminous materials. The hour hand and scale are blue and the minute hand is green. This makes Omega more legible. The Rolex Submariner Date uses a unique Chromalight luminous material. The scale is green and the hour and minute hands are blue. So legibility is not as high as Omega. However, Rolex’s hour hand has the famous Mercedes-Benz logo, which is clearly different from the minute hand. So in terms of legibility, the two watches became a draw.
The date is displayed at the three o’clock position of the Rolex Submariner and Omega Aqua Terra. However, Rolex added a magnifying glass. So we read the date of Rolex more convenient.
The Rolex Submariner Date uses a sophisticated Glidelock bracelet. The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean features a stainless steel bracelet with a patented, expandable folding clasp. Both bracelets are excellent.
Whether it is Rolex or Omega, it is the world’s top watch brand. In general, the performance of the two models is not much different. Rolex is not allowed to innovate, only to pursue the best of every detail. Omega cares more about the design of the style.
