Now a little something for the ladies out there that are just sick of using Nike watches while engaged in physical activities - and want something more... substantial. You don't need to rely on a man's watch for a sophisticated instrument look, and now Omega
has released a female sized version of one of its most popular watches. The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Chronograph 600m is an attractive and classic watch, but the standard model is 45.5mm wide. Large on most male wrists, too big on most female wrists. A few years after the Planet Ocean made its big splash, Omega now releases a 37.5mm wide version for women who want to sport the same look without looking silly.
The watch case is in steel with a helium escape valve, metal bracelet, and 600 meters of water resistance. A perfect diving watch from a company know for making excellent divers. The chronograph pushers can be had with the pictured black tips, which are also available in orange. The orange versions have the tone carried over to parts of the rotating diver's bezel as well.
Inside the watch is COSC certified Omega Co-Axial Calibre 3313 automatic mechanical movement. The included chronograph complication uses the more desirable column wheel mechanism in the movement. While at 37.5mm wide in size, this Seamaster Planet Ocean watch is much smaller than the male version, it is actually about the same size as some of the Omega Seamaster 300m watches sold in various Asian countries as men's models.
