Rolex Sea-Dweller VS Omega Planet Ocean
The Liquidmetal ceramic bezel on the Planet Ocean 600m comes in an array of colors including a combination of gray and orange, a combination of black and orange, solid black, solid blue, and solid orange. The two-tone bezels design is a bit different, with the first part always featuring pure orange and the graduation sign in the middle. In addition, there are Planet Ocean GMT bezels, which can be found in solid and black and white color designs.
With the exception of the 24-hour bezels fitted to the various GMT models, all Omega Planet Ocean bezels have the same functionally – a unidirectional timing bezel graduated to 60 minutes, which can be used to help divers accurately measure elapsed time while underwater. The bezel on the Planet Ocean also features a coin-edged design that makes it simple to grip underwater, which is imperative for divers who have already descended and may be wearing thick gloves.
The unidirectional 60-minute timing bezel on the Rolex Sea-Dweller is made to be strictly functional and although it has seen a number of updates over the years, its basic design has remained greatly unchanged. Different from the Planet Ocean, the bezel on the current Rolex Sea-Dweller is always crafted out of black Cerachrom. However, this proprietary, virtually scratch-proof ceramic material is preferred by collectors and divers for its durability and the fact that it won’t fade over time.
This is one of the most important parts of comparing the Rolex Sea Dwellers to the Omega Ocean, as many collectors are curious about the investment potential of their luxury watches. In general, Omega Planet Ocean has significantly lower retail costs, and Rolex Sea-Dweller hold better value over the long term.
Depending on the exact model the average retail price for a new Omega Planet Ocean is around $6,000 to $7,000. With that in mind, titanium and precious metal versions typically cost more, although even the full titanium model on a matching bracelet can be found brand-new for well under $10,000. This is absolutely cheap, but compared to the Rolex Sea-Dweller, it is a really great deal. Considering all the incredible features offered by Omega Planet Ocean, as well as the choice of luxurious finishes and aesthetic details, the price of this watch is quite reasonable for the Swiss luxury replica rolex watch market.
When we talk about the secondary market, the Omega Planet Ocean holds good value, but not quite as well as the Rolex Sea-Dweller. Older Planet Ocean watches can often be found at a large discount, but even the current-production models can often be found at noticeable savings compared to their original retail prices. Therefore, given that this watch is still rather new to the market, we’re curious to see how it ages in terms of vintage status over the years.
The first is sheer functionality – as this watch gives an official depth rating of more than twice the one offered by the Planet Ocean. The second thing you are paying a premium for is the brand name. Rolex watches hold significant value due to the quality associated with them, and you do end up paying a premium for that. However, because of this, the Rolex Sea-Dweller also has better value than the Omega Planet Ocean.
However, Vintage Rolex Sea-Dweller watches are considered rare and incredibly collectible. Prices for the original reference from the 1960s start out well-above the retail price for brand-new Sea-Dweller watches at https://girl-wonder.org”, and can easily reach into the six-figure range for the ultra-rare Double Red Sea-Dweller (DRSD) and Single Red Sea-Dweller watches. And, more importantly, because of the global demand far exceeds the supply, the Rolex watch Sea – Dweller still can even at the retail level of trade of used car market more than the retail price of the original, because there is no way to buy a brand new Rolex Sea – Dweller don’t spend some time in a fairly long waiting list.
