Whether land, air, or sea we are trying to give a nod to all aspects of enthusiasts that like to move. What we wear on our wrist sometimes has a connection to those interests….and who doesn’t like a nice watch? Seller offering an Omega Seamaster Ploprof 1200m Co-axial 55×48 for $5,200. Built for us deep sea divers in the middle of the country, the Seamaster Ploprof can withstand ocean depths of up to 4,000 feet. What do you get for $5,200? The watch is equipped with an automatic movement, rotating bezel, diving scale painted within sapphire bezel ring, stainless steel “sharkproof” bracelet and a helium release valve. Helium what….?
For those of you that are curious, a helium release valve is meant to protect the watch when diving at great depths under pressure. Under the right circumstances, helium can leak past the seals (because it’s much smaller than water molecules or other gasses) and build up in the watch. Pressure can build up within the watch and blow off the sapphire crystal. When you’re in a pressurized environment at 1,000 feet below sea level for days at a time – exploding watches are not a good thing. Hence, the helium release valve is supposed to mitigate that risk. Even if you are not spending days under pressurized underwater conditions it still looks cool – right?
Seller says the watch is an absolute beauty, keeps great time, and operates great. Comes with extra links, original box and full set of papers. Original MSRP for the Seamaster Ploprof is $9,700. Check out seller’s listing on Craigslist for full details and seller’s contact information.
