Omega SeaMaster Ploprof watch re-released
The Ploprof watch of the 1970s was many collectors’ unfulfilled desire. So it was almost obvious for Omega to re-release the Omega Seamaster Ploprof watch and include it in the Only Watch 2009 auction to represent this iconic timepiece – but in gold. For this one-off timepiece you can clearly see the note on the dial of “1/1 Only Watch” There will not be any more of these to go around. In addition to that, the watch will be up for auction, so you can just imagine how much will its price be.
Beside from being in red gold, the Only watch version of the Seamaster Ploprof is nicely done with a white dial, bezel, and rubber strap. The 2009 (including this model) version of the watch is water resistant to 1200 meters, has an automatic helium escape valve, and a button (gold and white ceramic) at about 2 o’clock that is meant to release the rotating diver’s bezel. The watch is over 55mm wide and 17.5 mm thick. The hands and hour indicators on the watch are also in red gold. Inside the watch is the Omega Calibre 8501 automatic movement that has been Chronometer certified. The individual who purchases this timepiece will no doubt be the envy of many, and few will just laugh of them for the ludicrous nature of the watch as some may see it. The Only Watch 2009 auction will be held in Monaco on September 24th this year.
