Just yesterday, we looked at the limited edition Seamaster Planet Ocean 45.5mm commemorating the 2014 Winter Olympics being held in Sochi this year. Today, we’ll examine the ladies’ counterpart to that watch – the 37.5mm Seamaster Planet Ocean. This lovely lady’s watch is also made in a similar limited quantity to the gent’s version, which is 2014 pieces. Omega doesn’t just miniaturize the watch and label it lady’s; in fact, this watch though from the same collection boasts its own unique aesthetic.
Like the gent’s edition, the Seamaster Planet Ocean 37.5mm Sochi 2014 Limited Edition is offered in stainless steel, which has is both satin finished and polished. As the name suggests, this watch comes in a mid-size case diameter of 37.5mm. This size highlights the watch’s sporty nature. The case back is stamped with the official logo of the Sochi Winter Olympics, and the inscription of “Si14” is engraved on it as well.
There is a unidirectional bezel on this watch in white ceramic which features the first 15 markings in blue, red, and white – the colors of the Russian federation flag. In keeping with the styling of this watch, the alligator leather strap is white as well. The clasp used is a single folding which secures this gorgeous watch to the wrist.
Also on the case is a helium release valve at the 10 position. Helium release valves are integral in watches designed for long dives as helium gas does build up in the watch. The gas is left unchecked can cause serious damage to the watch.
The dial is a pristine white with Super-LumiNova coated indexes and hands. The exceptions are the 6, 9, and 12 which use Arabic numerals, which come in blue, red, and white. At the 3 position is a nifty date aperture completing this easy-to-read dial.
Running this lady’s Planet Ocean limited edition timepiece is an automatic movement fitted with a Co-Axial escapement, which guarantees greater precision over time. The movement is also a certified chronometer by the COSC. This timepiece carries a water resistance of 600 meters (2000 feet). The water resistance is maintained by the screw locked main crown, which is a staple of any serious diving watch.
