Three Omega Watch Picks From The eBay Special Event Sales & Auctions

For the month of October, eBay is having a special event to highlight its vast assortment of Omega watches. There is about every variation of Omega Speedmaster, Seamaster, De Ville, and Constellation watch as part of the event, with select offerings at up to 30% off the regular price.

Here, we selected three Omega watches from the eBay event that represent what the brand is all about. Watch our video above browsing the event, and below see the three Omegas.

Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M

The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean is one of the brand’s flagship dive watches, and this variant with a blue dial and blue ceramic bezel is one of the most popular out there — for good reason, as the Planet Ocean is probably one of the best representations of luxury and serious tool-watch specs in one package.

Measuring 45.5mm-wide, this Planet Ocean is water resistant to 600M (or, 2000 feet) and is done in a lightweight titanium case with titanium bracelet. Being the higher-end Seamaster, the Planet Ocean has a blue ceramic unidirectional bezel. Note that the diving scale on the bezel is done in Omega’s proprietary Liquidmetal. Legibility, great finishing, and serious dive-watch specs all in a refined package is what the Planet Ocean is made of.

Powering the watch is the in-house Omega 8500 movement with Co-Axial escapement and a 60-hour power reserve.

Omega Speedmaster Racing Master Chronometer

The Speedmaster Moonwatch is the iconic chronograph, and not just from Omega. However, for this short roundup we wanted to put the spotlight on a different model (though there are many moon watches available as part of the event), this Speedmaster Racing Master Chronometer in particular. More contemporary and sporty, this Speedmaster Racing chronograph aims for versatility and luxury in an everyday watch with an in-house METAS-certified movement.

Measuring 44.25mm-wide and 14.9mm-thick, this Speedmaster Racing chronograph has case and dial refinements, such as a subtly grained dial and guilloché pattern on the sub-dials at 3 and 9 o’clock. The classic Speedmaster bezel is done in black ceramic, and you’ll see the racing minute-track running around the outer edge of the dial, which gives this line the “Racing” designation. It’s subtle in black and silver, but the orange Speedmaster font and tip of the seconds hand adds a sporty touch.

The METAS-certified in-house Omega 9900 movement powers the Omega Speedmaster Racing Master Chronometer, which has a 60-hour power reserve.

Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M GoodPlanet

Omega and the GoodPlanet Foundation have had a partnership for several years now with the mission of raising awareness for environmental conservation. This Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M GoodPlanet watch is a very balanced piece that is dressy but also has an attention-grabbing white lacquer dial with vibrant blued hands and indices.

Measuring 38.5mm-wide and 12.84mm-thick, this Aqua Terra will appeal to the large number of enthusiasts who prefer a sub-40mm wide watch that still has impressive wrist presence. With a titanium case and blue-coated fabric strap, the watch is lightweight and can be casual enough to match with a polo shirt just as well as a suit. The dial here is the star of the show, with the white lacquer and nautical-inspired blue features. Practicality is not forgotten, however, as the anti-reflective coating on the sapphire crystal ensures ideal legibility. It also offers 150M of water resistance and magnetic field resistance of 15,000 Gauss. This lets the watch go for a dip and easily withstand the barrage of magnetic fields people expose their watches to on a daily basis.

The Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M GoodPlanet runs on the Omega caliber 8500 movement with Co-Axial Escapement and a 60-hour power reserve.

    I’m an Aqua Terra Man ??

    • DanW94

      There’s something about an Aqua Terra man!

    • Lingua Franca

      Classic Ice Blue for me!

    • I want all three of them!

  • SuperStrapper

    If the prices are right it might be worth a look but it’s pretty crappy they don’t appear to come with the correct straps.

  • I haven’t checked out the ebay special promotion event yet but Guys, I believe there are a couple of factual errors with regards to the description of the Seamaster Planet Ocean 600 for sale on ebay

    >That’s a discontinued Seamaster Professional Planet Ocean 600 Liquid Metal All Titanium Grade 5 Co-Axial Chronometer Calibre 8500 with the Si14 Silicon Hairspring and not a Calibre 8900

    > Omega’s 1st blue dial Titanium Diver watch

    >Production years 2011-2014

    > It’s measures 45.5 not 43.5 mm

    > That watch is COSC certified not METAS certified. A METAS certified SMP PO 600 LM would have the printed font Co-Axial Master Chronometer on the dial

    > I can’t see it maybe it’s the angle the photo was taken but the word [Zr02] must be printed on the dial above the Co Axial font

      Man! nothing gets by you Megan.

      • I have to admit I used to work as a sales assistant at an Omega boutique in Kuala Lumpur once upon a time and also an ex member of the Omega Forum

    • PowNation

      You have a lot of time on your hands ?

      • I was once a member of the distinguished Omega Forum, sort of a Jedi Apprentice turned to the Dark Side.Whatever little knowledge I know now is all because of the wonderful WIS community (Jedi Knights) and the great Moderators (Jedi Masters) of Omega Council

  • Raymond Wilkie

    That Seamaster Planet Ocean is just totally gorgeous.
    Today I went into the city to a shop ( boutique ) I sat down in a nice comfy chair and chatted to a rather pleasant sales girl. She showed me some Nomos watches as I’ve decided I want one and it was all very socially civilised.
    I buy things off Ebay every now and then when a need a new phone charger or a memory card (and yes I hate my self for it) today, I bought headphones.
    It’s such a clinical way of buying something especially a dead expensive watch. Ok , you have the watch but where’s the pomp and ceremony?
    The high street is dying.

  • Swiss_Cheese

    All three are very nice, my pick of the bunch is the Aqua Terra – the two register Speedmaster is somehow busier than the ordinary three and I think Raymond has laid claim to the Planet Ocean. As always, it’d be nice if they offered a no date Aqua Terra – like they do on the ultra light.

  • SuperStrapper

    I came back for another look at the 9900 but it’s the AT I’m spending more time with. All that blue looks so good on the white: that really needs to be a ‘teak’ dial and the watch would truly be stunning.

  • I can answer some of your questions Mr. George.Omega is in the midst of phasing out all the old models e.g Master Co-Ax & Co-Ax Chronometer and replacing the entire series with the METAS certified Master Chronometer status by 2020 as envisioned by Omega’s ex President Mr Stephen Urquhart.
    The Speedy Racing Master egg shell dial with the white enamel filled tachymeter bezel although a crowd favourite on the Omega Forum isn’t selling very well at the Omega boutiques.I visited my old colleagues at the boutique just last week and sure enough in the glass cabinet, two Speedy Racing Master watches were on display, both white dials,one on the steel bracelet,the other on the leathery rubber strap

    P/S: Guys, just remember the old Seamaster Planet Ocean 600 Calibre 8500 models with the Si14 hairspring can still be easily magnetized by a laptop computer and any Radio Frequency Identification RFID, the tech system you see at Marathon races
