A little look at the new Seamaster.
Great looking watch although personally I am not a fan of PVD coated watches. It is the METAS testing that really grabbed my attention.

Also if like me you are not familiar with METAS master chronometer testing you will find this in depth piece very interesting. With a look at Omegas own testing site, this process goes way further than COSC and the best bit is any manufacturer can submit their watches.

With your permission, I will take up liking black PVD watches in
your stead.
I kept seeing the comment on Sinn watches "Tegmented Case"
Tegmented is a special Sinn procedure that hardens Sinn watch
cases to spectacular strength and durabilty (according to Sinn i.e).

If I had my druthers on which watch I'd like, it'd be any Sinn. I'm
not employed by Sinn giving them a plug BTW. Just go gaa gaa over
them.

Likewise, not crazy about PVD.

Interesting to read about METAS, however, I am more than satisfied with the accuracy of my COSC certified SMP.

Thanks for that link Gary

You are very welcome, same here I have found the COSC standards to be superb, my 26 year old GMT Master runs well within the standards as does my relatively new Christopher Ward. I found the read very interesting it is really commendable that well established companies are not resting on their laurels and striving to be better. I don't think very many owners will be testing them though, but still it is incredibly impressive.

Omega hit another home run with this new Seamaster honestly!
Love just the design, and no date dial, but then the PVD adds a
new dimension, and helps separate it from other watches.
Even the titanium breaks things up nicely, so it's not an all PVD
all the time.

Really is impressive Gary, and speaking of impressive. Wow, the
METAS testing is just unbelievable when you really look at all that
goes into it. It always makes you actually appreciate these watches
even more. Which is hard to imagine ! :eek: ..So so cool sir !!!

Oh, and speaking of cool, did anyone happen to catch the
Ploprof clock on the wall in the METAS article? :)


Thanks so much once again Desk !

Yes for sure I loved Omega before but with the new developments it makes you appreciate the brand so much more. Also you have got eagle eyes there AT I missed that clock, I will have to reread that article.

Yup, you end up appreciating them so much more, which basically
seemed impossible. :) The way they just seem to never be satisfied
is the best, and it really makes them separate themselves from the
other watch brands, or companies out there.


:bounce: With the clock Gary, was thinking wow, look at that ! :eek: It's like
the regular Ploprof, and way bigger, and just makes you smile.

Didn't the article state that the case was ceramic, not PVD?

You beat me to it! :D The hands and indices are PVD, the case is black ceramic. (A zirconium carbide variant). It does give the watch a certain 'je ne sais quoi'. I like the package as a whole but like many I'm not fond of all black watches, PVD or otherwise. This is a watch for life, the materials are virtually indestructible and scratch resistant.

I like the watch and my own taste are I like all black. I also like watches that are on the "tougher" side of things.

I only know the material from kitchen knives (it is a Kyocera invention). I have a couple, they are razor sharp and stay that way forever but don't drop 'em because they are brittle. Point gone or a damaged edge that can never be sharpened. It has a nice sheen to it, very different from PVD.

You really gotta want to be a cowboy these days to exist at this job. Lo

Tell by the sun what time it is to rope, brand and castrate cattle.
