What We Know
Remember back in the summer of 2019 when luxury Omega replica watches showed off the Planet Ocean Ultra Deep by strapping it to Victor Vescovo’s submarine and letting it play Second Mate for a trip down 10,928 meters – that’s a hair over 35,853 feet – to the bottom of the ocean? Well, now you can get your hands on the civilian version of the Planet Ocean Ultra Deep. But don’t let “civilian” fool you: The new Ultra Deep is a serious performance piece that can handle serious pressure, including that of being Omega’s latest flagship dive watch.
While the original concept version that toured to the bottom of the ocean on the Limiting Factor (that’s the name of Vescovo’s submarine) was a massive chunk of titanium measuring 55mm across and some 28mm thick, the new Ultra Deep, which is available in titanium or a brand-new steel alloy called “O-MEGASTEEL”, measures 45.5mm wide and just 18.12mm thick.
In exchange for those still considerable proportions, the Ultra Deep (in either material) is rated to a depth of 6,000 meters, or just shy of 19,685 feet, with ISO 6425 certification via METAS and a design that allows for saturation diving without the need for a helium escape valve. Those deep-diving specs required a considerable amount of technological development from 1:1 UK Omega fake watches, including four newly pending patents concerning the crystal, crystal gasket, crown, and two-piece caseback.
Starting with the titanium version, the Ultra Deep retains several hallmarks of the record-setting original design. The production version is made from sandblasted grade 5 titanium and uses an asymmetrical case (to aid in crown protection), a ceramic bezel insert with liquid metal scale, a titanium dial with blue Planet Ocean-style accents. Just as we saw with the concept version, the Ultra Deep has “Manta Lugs,” which are similar to channel lugs (like those seen on the recent Tudor Pelagos FXD). As such, the Ultra Deep Titanium is only compatible with NATO-style straps and best replica Omega watches includes a black/blue number that is made of 100 percent recycled materials and features titanium hardware.
The Ultra Deep Titanium’s caseback is closed and uses a two-piece design for maximum water resistance. Despite being ISO 6425 compliant and pressure-tested with a machine that had to be developed in-house, Swiss movements Omega copy watches also pressure-tested the Ultra Deep Titanium in a real-world environment by taking a production example to a depth of 6269M over Mariana’s Trench in the waters due north of Papua New Guinea.
As for the steel Ultra Deep, high quality Omega replica watches is producing some 6 references at launch and while the specs are similar to that of the titanium sibling, the steel versions have a symmetrical case with traditional crown guards and buyers have the option of a rubber strap or a full steel bracelet. In total, there are three different colorways, including a blue gradient dial with a black bezel, a white dial with a blue bezel, and a black-grey gradient dial with an orange bezel. Each is offered with either a full steel bracelet or a rubber strap.
And it’s not just any steel – it’s “O-MEGASTEEL,” a proprietary alloy five years in the making that is 40 percent to 50 percent harder than 316L steel while also offering a yield rating that is more than double that of conventional stainless steel (which is a measurement of how much stress a metal can take before it’s permanently deformed). According to Omega, 316L fake watches for sale of this size would not be capable of such depths. Omega Steel allows the case and caseback to withstand the pressure in a manner that matches the performance of titanium.
In addition to the technical specs, O-MEGASTEEL is also whiter in color and carries more of a shine than other steels commonly used in watchmaking. The bracelet is a new design, as well (compared to those seen on previous Planet Ocean models) and the clasp features a push-button six-position micro adjust with 2.3mm of extension.
Unlike the original design, these replica watches online site do not use the bonded liquid metal gasket for the crystal but rather a more service-friendly design with a patent-pending gasket execution that helps manage all of that pressure. In ISO 6425 overpressure testing, the crystal of the Ultra Deep is under some 7.5 tonnes of pressure so the crystal has to be defect-free or it will fail. To combat this need for a perfect crystal, Omega has opted to use an Edge-defined Film-fed Growth (EFG) sapphire crystal of excellent quality that is also finished on both sides with an anti-reflective treatment.
Be they titanium or O-MEGASTEEL all of the Ultra Deeps use perfect Omega fake watches’ time-only Master Chronometer Caliber 8912, which runs at 3.5 Hz and has a power reserve of 60 hours. Pricing for the Ultra Deep line starts at $11,200 for the steel versions with a rubber strap, $11,600 for the steel with the bracelet, and tops out at $12,300 for the titanium model on a NATO strap.
What We Think
As far as top super clone Omega dive watches are concerned, there’s a new king in town. In many ways, I think the Ultra Deep makes a lot of sense as the peak of the Planet Ocean spirit combined with Omega’s tireless resolve when it comes to being the market leader of technology and performance in the watch space.
If Omega wants to flex on replica watches wholesale like the Rolex Deepsea, this is definitely one way to go about it. In truth, Rolex and other brands aren’t even keeping up if 6,000m is now the standard – but I bring them up as I believe they share similar audiences.
Let’s review just a few of the recent players in the very deep diving space and keep the numbers – as insane and performative as they may be – in scope. The Deepsea bottoms out at 3,900 meters. The German brand UTS once made a 4,000m-capable dive watch (they call it the “4,000m Dive Watch” with a typical German flair) and another brand called Swiss Military used to make the CX 20,000 (which was capable of matching the Ultra Deep’s 6,000m, but was also 46 x 28.5mm). As for Breitling, the 45mm Avenger Seawolf is good to an impressive 3,000m, but that’s only half that of the Ultra Deep (and, like the Omega, it’s also a little over 18mm thick).
Look, I’m sure there are others to consider, but really, Swiss made fake watches like these are technical showcases not practical tools for any kind of diving. Omega makes the Ultra Deep knowing that very few indeed will ever see any real stress unless they’re accidentally dropped off the side of a boat over VERY deep water. Hell, the normal floor for recreational diving is 40 meters.
This idea, this calling card of being the “deepest diving watch,” has proven to be sticky despite it largely being without purpose. Think of 40m for SCUBA like your local speed limit (unless you’re German and live next to an unrestricted stretch of the Autobahn). The Ultra Deep is like the SSC Tuatara or Bugatti Chiron of dive replica watches store. No, you can’t explore even a fraction of its capability in a casual setting, but to me, that’s almost secondary to the point of such a watch. It’s just nerdy cool fun. And hey, we’d all have a better shot at maxing out an Ultra Deep underwater than we would at testing a Speedmaster on the moon, right?
Just as I doubt I will ever have a lifestyle that supports any sort of hypercar ownership, I definitely don’t have enough wrist (or the wallet) for the Ultra Deep. That said, I remain very glad that brands are still pushing the envelope of engineering, and I’m excited to see the Ultra Deep in person over the coming days. The bottom of the ocean remains a deeply fascinating part of our world that represents as much of a “final frontier” as space does, so it only makes sense that Omega would push to be at the forefront.
