Into the deep with Omega
Marine life gets a boost thanks to the Seamaster Planet Ocean
Omega, one of the world's leading timepiece brands and official timekeeper of the Olympics, recently introduced the Seamaster Planet Ocean constellation at a charity event on Koh Yo, just off the Pattaya coast.
Guests departed from the Ocean Marina Yacht Club on a leisurely 45-minute yacht ride to the island, where celebrities donned diving gear and plunged into the sea to get some new coral reefs growing.
The brand's representative promised a yearly ritual to help the deteriorating marine life in the area.
Later in the evening, at a lavish bash at the Sheraton Pattaya Resort, the brand unveiled its latest intricately designed diving watches.
They utilise its signature technology, the Co-Axial Calibres 8500 and 9300, first introduced in 2005, which feature a Silicon Si 14 balance spring atop the Omega free-sprung balance.
You also have the Chronograph Wheel that ensures the stability of the watch mechanism, and 60-minute and 12-hour recorders. The watch keeps working even at 600 metres underwater.
While many diving watches look bulky and most are black, the Seamaster Planet Ocean is elaborately designed to work efficiently in the deep and looks great alongside any fashion style.
The cases are made of brushed stainless steel, adorned with sapphire crystals, and propped on rubber or alligator straps. There are different colours and styles for both male and female.
You can buy an Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean at the Omega boutiques at Siam Paragon and Gaysorn Plaza. http://www.nationmultimedia.com/
