The Omega Replica Seamaster Planet Ocean Big Blue Ceramic GMT may have one of the most descriptive product names out there – it’s a Planet Ocean that is indeed very big and very blue.
Omega did something very cool and brought along a five-piece puzzle to show how the case is crafted from a solid block of ceramic along with a number of other production pieces for the bezel and case-back. Unlike the Chanel J12 and nearly all other ceramic-cased watches, Cheap Omega Replica ceramic-cased watches do not use a steel inner core with a thin and relatively brittle ceramic layer wrapped around it. Instead, the case is solid ceramic through and through.
Monochrome ceramics have prevailed in white, black, or tones of grey because the moment you start adding pigments to ceramic and then exposing said pigments multiple times to immense heat, they react with the ceramic compound and Omega Replica result in discolorations and inconsistencies on the surface and inside the material itself.
As such, the initial high-pressure treatment is followed by a sintering process at 1,450 degrees Celsius, further strengthening and shrinking the material that now even more closely resembles the final shape and is now ever harder and more scratch-resistant.
Cheap Omega Replica explains: “for such a tough material, it then takes diamond tools to add the defining edges and grooves while also being lubricated and cooled by high-pressure oil solutions. A three-hour plasma treatment in a 20,000° C furnace then paves the way for precision laser-engraving.”
