Omega has released a new ETNZ edition regatta chronograph. Formally known as the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black ETNZ Replica Edition, the new timepiece features a black ceramic case and a colorway inspired by the logo that appears on Emirates Team New Zealand’s sails.
Aside from the updated colorway, the external design and construction of the watch are largely the same as its standard-production sibling, with a domed anti-reflective sapphire crystal fitted to the top of the case that is surrounded by a unidirectional rotating timing bezel fitted with a black ceramic insert.
Similar to other Planet Ocean Any Replica Watches, a manually operated helium escape valve sticks out from the side of the case at 10 o’clock, while a screw-down crown resides at its usual position of 3 o’clock, and though the turquoise-accented pushers don’t screw down to the case, they do offer dynamic water resistance, which allows users to operate them while submerged to take full advantage of the watch’s more-than-generous 600-meter depth rating.
The rest of the dial follows in the footsteps of other Planet Ocean Chronograph models, and it features large arrow-shaped hands, a running seconds register at 9 o’clock, and a date window at the 6 o’clock position that features a slightly trapezoid-shaped profile to complement the tapered silhouettes of the hour markers.
Powering the new Omega Seamaster Top Replica Watches is the same Co-Axial Caliber 9900 automatic movement that can be found inside the other chronograph models from the current Planet Ocean lineup. Running at a frequency of 28,800vph (4 Hz) with a power reserve of approximately 60 hours.
As one of Omega’s METAS-certified “Master Chronometer” movements, the Cal. 9900 is guaranteed to keep time within -0/+5 seconds per day (after casing), and it is also entirely resistant to magnetic forces in excess of 15,000 gauss, thanks to its silicon balance spring and a number of other antimagnetic components used throughout the construction of the movement.
Aside from its new colorway, the actual construction of the Replica Watches China strap is identical to what can be found on the standard Planet Ocean Deep Black Chronograph, and it is completed by a deployant-style folding clasp made from black ceramic.
Similar to the standard black ceramic version of the Planet Ocean Chronograph, the new Replica Watches For Men ref. 220.127.116.11.01.003 comes at a premium compared to its siblings in either stainless steel or titanium.
