Here's something I'd never thought I'd be writing about, mainly because I never thought Omega would introduce a watch like this. I usually associate the black (this case is ceramic, not PVD-coated), large (46mm in the case of Omega's new watches) diving watches with a company like Breitling. Omega continues to move away from legitimate diving watches with this new offering. The case is ceramic, which is scratch-resistant, but can also shatter, unlike steel. Not that anyone should take their $6500+ (not sure what this new version costs) watch diving. There are four new models, a Sedna gold version, black version, blue version, and red version (pics below).
On the red and blue models, rubber highlights the first 15 minutes on the ceramic bezel. The color choice is actually quite interesting: if you dove to 5 m, red is the first color to disappear. If you dive to 275m blue is the last color to disappear. Despite my first impressions (which I will say were not particularly positive), I like the new watches quite a bit, although the plain black version is still my runaway favorite.
