Omega introduced the new Seamaster Planet Ocean “Deep Black” Casamigos Limited Edition model, which is designed by its long time brand ambassador George Clooney and Rande Gerber.
George Clooney and Omega have been together for a long time. Rande Gerber, on the other hand, has close relations with Omega due to being the husband of Cindy Crawford, who became a friend of the brand in 1995. Omega introduced the new Seamaster Planet Ocean “Deep Black” Casamigos Limited Edition model to commemorate the “Casamigos Tequila and Mezcal” founded by George Clooney, Rande Gerber and Mike Meldman to the likes of North American watch enthusiasts.
The new model, which is essentially a dive watch with GMT feature, comes in a 45.5mm diameter case made of black ceramic. The matt surface finish of the case is inspired by the newly released Casamigos Mezcal. “Design is very personal to me. When I designed the Casamigos Mezcal bottle, the key was to create something unique that I want to have on my bar. We used the same philosophy for our OMEGA collaboration, we worked closely to design something that was true to us and that we want to wear.” says Rande Gerber, who ho took a very hands-on approach to the project. The case back sports the logo of Casamigos Mezcal as well as the limited edition information. The case is water resistant to 600 meters.
The model houses a matt black dial featuring indices and hands filled with Super-LumiNOVA of the same color as the Casamigos Tequila and Mezcal logo. The center second hand and GMT hand are finished in bright blue. The model is powered by the manufacture Caliber 8906. Co-Axial escapement self-winding movement offers a pleasing 60-hour power reserve. The ceramic case is complemented by a black rubber strap that is adorned with black stitching.
Limited to a span of 80 units only, the model will be available through the Omega boutiques in the USA, with a MSRP of 11,600 USD excluding taxes.
