The amazing Omega Seamaster PloProf has been deservedly applauded by numerous gatherers. In any case, a ton of the data that was distributed up till now has been off-base. Various gatherers have now cleared up everything, with the assistance of Omega’s International Brand Heritage Manager Petros Protopapas and his group. Not just that, the creators have performed profound examination by experiencing Omega’s files themselves just as gathering and breaking down material from other watch authorities. This doesn’t fundamentally mean you can throw away the book on the Ploprof by Jon Wallis, yet it without a doubt is essential to recognize that a portion of the data in there is obsolete now.

It as of now begins with the name of the watch. Like the Moonwatch, there isn’t actually one ‘Moonwatch’ yet various Speedmaster references are qualified for bear this designator. Ploprof represents ‘Plongeur Professionnel’ (which means ‘professional diver’) and identifies with the kind of watch more than the watch type itself. Which means, the Seamaster 600 reference 166.077 is a Ploprof ( read our article on it here ), however so is the later Seamaster 1000 reference 166.093 for example.

But that isn’t the significant revelation here, obviously. The exploration performed was likewise not intended to confirmation all distributions up till now off-base, yet to get the full story out on this watch, particularly viewing the specific parts like the dial, bezel and hands. Order was lost on these things which brought about somewhat of a wreck with respect to the right designs and what has been distributed on them. A quick assessment of Seamaster 600s that were shot and went for administration at Omega Bienne shows that more than 60% have endured a development trade. Presently, what should be done should be done as I would like to think, however I feel it is additionally critical to make such things clear when watches are offered available. Be it on commercial centers like Chrono24, deals discussions or closeout places.

When the folks did their examination in the chronicles in Bienne, where Omega has their HQ, they had the option to take a few to get back some composure of interior records enumerating the initially fabricated determination and resulting arrangements of the Seamaster 600 Ploprof.

On the Seamaster PloProf site, or better said, the Seamaster 600 PloProf site, you will locate a complete overview of all the known and existing configurations.

The Seamaster Ploprof 600 was presented in February 1971 (and not in 1970) and didn’t hit the market until April of that year. Curiously, the Seamaster 1000 (PloProf) was presented in 1972. A little run of only 150 watches was made at that point. At that point, the second emphasis of the Seamaster 1000 came in 1976 with just 300 watches made. An exceptionally uncommon and fascinating watch, that was fundamentally created corresponding to the Seamaster PloProf 600 yet in a tiny amount. This watch is a subject for some other time, however in the in the mean time go to find out about the Seamaster 1000 a.k.a ‘The Grand’.

Dials, Hands and Bezels

As you can see, there are various dial, hands and bezels utilized for the Seamaster PloProf 600. Other than an outline of the multitude of unique parts, you will likewise locate various assistance parts that have been utilized. The writers of the site declared an upcoming book that will talk about each arrangement in detail.

The first Seamaster Ploprof model saw the light in 1968, utilizing the Omega Caliber 1000 development from the outset for the models. As composed above, in April 1971 the Seamaster PloProf 600 Mark 1 (with type 1002), as it is currently being alluded to, was conveyed to the market. At that point, in 1973 there was the Mark 2 (new dial print) and in 1975 there was the Mark 3 with the meters & feet showed on the dial. Notwithstanding, numerous Seamaster PloProf 600 watches got administration parts during adjusting, so it is elusive an all unique piece nowadays. Henceforth, a few authorities and the Omega Museum packaged their powers to come up with an excellent guide on the Omega Seamaster PloProf 600 to show what is by and large time-right and unique (and what’s not). The principle writer of the article ( ) can likewise be followed on Instagram, so you are forward-thinking when there’s something new or uncommon published.
