Planet Ocean Makes its Way to the Philippines

omega planet oceanBetter late than never I suppose.

Being a watch freak, moi always makes it a point to go to affairs, palanggas, involving timepieces. So I went when one of the popular Swiss watch brands in the world, Omega, launched its exciting new addition to the Omega Seamaster range, the fab Planet Ocean. The event was attended by Omega’s mega hotshot vice president for product development and designer of the Planet Ocean line Jean Claude Monachon and Omega area sales manager Oliver Hugentobler, so I immediately knew we were in for a smashing good time.

The grand ballroom of Makati’s Shangri-La Hotel was transformed into an underwater scene complete with the calming sound of the ocean. Planet Ocean endorser and Olympic champion Michael Phelps displayed the watch in an awesome dramatic action. Apparently Michael P.’s main rival, Australian Olympic gold medalist, Ian Thorpe also happens to be an ambassador of Planet Ocean. That’s competition at its best, palanggas.

Omega’s newest baby was inspired by the clown fish, with its vibrant hues. My favorite was the super cool eye-catching orange leather-strapped piece with an orange bezel. It was a major fashionable watch made in the uncompromising standards of Omega.
