The newest limited edition watch from Omega features a great new innovation in bezel materials developed by Omega and the Swatch Group. This new material is achieved by using a technique which bonds ceramic with Liquidmetal metallic glass. Liquidmetal is Used for numbers and scaling of the unidirectional dive bezel and composed of zirconium, titanium, copper, beryllium, and nickel. This new mixture has an impressive hardness that is three times that of a conventional 316L stainless steel making the bezels highly resistant to wear and tear. It also has the capability of fusing seamlessly with the ceramic bezel material surrounding it.

The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Liquidmetal Limited Edition watch has a 42mm stainless steel case and stainless steel bracelet with the Omega dual-pushbutton folding clasp. This special clasp has a concealed dive extension that allows for easy wearablity over a wetsuit. The black glossy dial complements the glossy look of the ceramic Liquidmetal bezel. The dial also features Superluminova hour indexes and hour hands contribute which allows for easy readability in dim lighting. The screw-down case-back and helium release help the watch to reach an impressive water resistance of up to 600 meters (2000 feet).

The Liquidmetal Limited Edition is powered by the Co-Axial 2500 caliber which features a power reserve of up to 42 hours. Caliber 2500 beats at an impressive 25,200 beats per hour which helps to assure reliable operation. The caliber includes both a stop seconds function for precise setting and a rapidly-adjustable calendar. This watch will be produced in a limited edition of 1,948 pieces.
