Last year’s OMEGA Globemaster will forever hold a special distinction: the first-ever timepiece to be certified by the insane eight-step METAS (the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology) process — the certification tests of which appear below. Now the Swiss watchmaker is back with its first-ever METAS-certified master chronograph: the Seamaster Planet Ocean Chronograph 45.5mm. Ditching the Seamaster’s original coaxial caliber 9300 movement in favor of the brand new automatic coaxial chronometer caliber 9901/9900, this Seamaster features the likes of a helium escape valve (for saturation diving), water resistance of up to 2,000 feet, and a 60-hour power reserve.

Pictured above in Sedna gold and stainless steel with a blue ceramic bezel, the Seamaster Planet Ocean Chronograph 45.5mm is available now for CHF 14,500 (approximately $14,862 USD).

1. The function of the movement during exposure to a magnetic field of 15,000 gauss.
2. The deviation of the running time of the watch in six positions.
3. The deviation of the running time of the watch between 0 and 2/3 power reserve.
4. The function of the watch during exposure to a magnetic field of 15,000 gauss.
5. The deviation of the average daily precision of the watch after exposure to a magnetic field of 15,000 gauss.
6. The average daily precision of the watch in tests replicating daily wearing conditions (six positions, two temperatures.)
7. The power reserve of the watch (autonomy – functioning without winding.)
8. The water resistance of the watch (tested in water.)
