Omega Just Unveiled The Deepest-Diving Watch Of All Time

Omega is known for crafting incredibly functional dive watches capable of accompanying intrepid souls diving down to explore the heart of the ocean. Well, the premiere watchmakers have outdone themselves this time with the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Ultra Deep Professional Watch, as it has set a new world record for the deepest dive in history.

Adventurer Victor Vescovo wore the Planet Ocean Ultra Deep Professional watch when he dove 10,928 meters to the floor of the Mariana Trench back in May. The 52mm watch is 28mm thick and made using the titanium from the cutoffs of Vescovo’s Triton sub. In order to withstand incredible water pressure, Omega studied the design of the Limiting Factor submersible the watch would accompany. Inspired by the sub, Omega used a conical design to distribute stress evenly and bonded the sapphire crystal with their paneled Liquidmetal. The Ultra Deep Professional was tested at 15,000m before embarking on its record-breaking journey. Inside the timepiece, you’ll find Omega’s Master Chronometer movement. Unfortunately, the Ultra Deep Professional isn’t available to the public.
