Omega Seamaster 600 “Ploprof” MN
Stainless steel monobloc case legendary diving watch by Omega. This PLOngeur PROFessionnel from 1972 has a rare mark1 dial (so called “black dial” because of their deep dark blue colour) bearing the registration number of the french Marine Nationale oceanographic vessel L’Espérance, on duty from July 1969 until September 2000.
The watch is marvelous, “point barre”, like they would say in French. The French will also get my bad word game related to boats. The patina is one of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen on a watch, very difficult to render on photographs. It’s like all the writings and indexes were gilt, matching with the patina on the bezel. I realize that I can’t describe the watch in an objective way because I’m in love with it. This website is called 2diveornot2dive mostly because of our love of vintage divers and the Ploprof is the epitome. At least one of the graals along with the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms, the early Rolex Submariners and a few others.
