This episode of 52Mondayz is kind of a goodbye to a watch. Soon, I will say goodbye to this beautiful Omega Seamaster 600 Replica from the first generation. But before it is that time, let me talk a bit about this iconic divers watch from the 1970s.
A major concern with professional dive Fake Omega Watches is the entry of helium inside the watch case. Helium is used in diving bells when professional divers have to work at greater depths for a longer period of time. Even if a regular diving watch is able to withstand a certain water pressure, helium molecules still might be able to slowly enter the watch through its gasket materials.
When while surfacing the pressure drops, the helium will expand. It’s not able to leave the watch quickly enough, and the Swiss Made Omega Replica Watches will get damaged by for instance popping off its glass. At that time some watch brands were testing solutions enabling the helium to escape quickly enough from the watch. A so called helium escape valve was developed and used for instance by Rolex and Doxa.
Not Omega. Omega choose to produce a watch casing which was strong enough to avoid helium to enter in the first place. they decided that it would be better to prevent helium from entering the watch in the first place. Hence the PloProf was born.Fake Omega Watches measured the maximum pressure the Ploprof could handle which resulted in a failure of the watch at 1370 meters as the second hand stopped due to deformation of the crystal and case. The later re-edition of the PloProf, introduced in 2009, does have a helium valve.
