Omega Ploprof 1200M Professional Diver's Watch

The Seamaster Ploprof 1200M, a myth-buster of mission impossible diving down below 1000m.
Omega Launched a Seamaster Professional 600, the so-called “Ploprof” (the first letters of plongeur professionnel – the French words meaning “professional divers.
It was the Rival of Submariner in the 70’s, one more choice the professional diver in need of the most rugged, tough, robust deep sea timing instrument.
The new unmistakable Co-Axial ploprof OMEGA has introduced a completely updated version of the classic and instantly recognizable wristwatch. Equipped with a Co-Axial (launched in 1999) calibre 8500, the new Ploprof 1200M is, as its name suggests, water resistant to an astounding 1200 metres / 4000 feet /120 bar and it artfully combines its ancestor’s legendary features with OMEGA’s state-of-the-industry Co-Axial technology.
The screwed-in crown is located at 9 o’clock under a protective buffer. Its unique positioning allows freer wrist movement and prevents any inadvertent manipulation.
At the 2 o’clock position is the Ploprof’s characteristic bezel-release security pusher with an orange anodized aluminum ring. Pressing the pusher allows the bezel to be rotated in either direction and then locked firmly in position, ensuring that it cannot be accidentally shifted during a dive. Automatic helium escape valve located on the side of the case at the 4 o’clock position.
Two-piece oriented case back. The case body is made of brushed stainless steel and has polished bevels.
The polished indexes are coated with white Super-LumiNova, as are the varnished hour and seconds hands. The oversized minute hand is crafted from orange anodized aluminum and is coated with white Super-LumiNova. The Ploprof 1200M has a date window at the 4:30 position.
The Ploprof 1200M is available either with a brushed mesh "Sharkproof" bracelet or on a rubber strap in a choice of black or orange.
The bracelet, with its double extension system, is fitted with OMEGA’s new diving safety clasp whose pinned links allow precise adjustments to 18 positions. It also features an extra divers’ extension to 26 mm so that the watch can be worn comfortably over a diving suit.

If you are having Submariner, DeepSEA, this is the one that you have to consider… No matter what, this guarantee you are not lonely in the deepsSsa under a depth of 1200M.. with the companion of such professional equipment.
