Omega Seamaster Ploprof 1200M Review

Omega Seamaster Ploprof 1200M Watch Review

The Omega Seamaster Ploprof mens watch has landed! This robust diver was originally released in the 70’s and now has been reborn in 2009. Still holding true to the original with some modern updating. Where did the name come from? The name PloProf derives from the French term PLOngeur PROFessionnel (Professional Diver). Obviously this is a very distinctive watch, especially the orange pusher at the 2 o’clock position. This pusher allows the wearer to safely rotate the bezel in either direction and lock it into position to avoid accidental movement. 
This new version will take you 4000ft under, with the help of the HEV located at the 4 o’clock position. Under the hood it is powered by Omega’s new calibre 8500, which has been given great reviews. It is offered on either a mesh bracelet or a rubber strap. Omega has one of the best mesh bracelets on the market, no brainer which one I would chose if I was in the market for this beast. The Ploprof case diameter is 55mm! This the largest watch in the Omega line up and has received a lot of attention in the watch world.

Pros - Great representation of the original, while adding modern touches, 8500 movement, extremely unique design.

Considerations - A beastly size, with a price to match
