The latest model of the Omega Seamaster series, the Seamaster Ploprof 1200M was especially created for diving. Extremely tough, durable and stabile, this dive watch is water resistant to an amazing 1200 metres.
The original Seamaster Ploprof Diving watch was launched in the 1970’s. It was the Seamaster Professional 600, the so-called “Ploprof” from French words “PLOngeur PROFessionnel”, which means “professional divers”.
During a years of progress in watchmaking industry, Omega watches from Seamaster collection has been reinforced to resist extreme conditions and pressure in great depth. Thanks to the advanced technology, hard construction and the revolutionary in-house Co-Axial mechanism, newest model in famous collection doubled the resistance under water.
The Ploprof 1200M is equipped with the Co-Axial calibre 8500, with a free sprung balance, which delivers long-term stability and accuracy. This self-winding mechanism, with two barrels mounted in series, has astonishing power reserve of 60 hours. The Co-Axial movement also offers the possibility of adjusting the hour to various time zones.
Omega Seamaster Ploprof 1200 M watch contains a screwed-in crown, at the 9 o’clock position, preventing possible inadvertent manipulation. The bezel can only be activated through the pusher, located at the 2 o’clock position. Pressing the orange aluminium ring allows the bezel to be rotated in either direction and then locked firmly in position, providing that it cannot be accidentally moved during a dive. Another important element is the helium escape-valve, positioned at 4 o’clock. This distinction allows helium atoms to escape during decompression.
