Deep Down it's Beautiful...
I have finally found the Seamaster 600 Ploprof that I had been hunting for quite some time now...man this is a beast ! Launched in 1970, the Ploprof is the Omega counterpart to the Rolex Sea Dweller - Poprof stands for “Plongeur Professionnel” - but the o...
Hi, fabulous post and a hell of watch! Exceptional condition - congrats and enjoy! Erich
Now that is the gen-u-wine article!
Congrats on this marvelous original piece! I'm clearly less of a purist (but, I hope, not less of a Purist) when it comes to this watch, so the piece that I have has the updated hands and bezel (and was a later series watch than yours, as is obvious from ...
Great post on a extraordinary watch..
...thanks for sharing your thoughts and great and detailed pictures. Seems like your long hunt has been very fruitful when looking at your nice example A question though, is this a Omega patent or..? Best Hans
This is truely a piece of history, I'm not a big fan aesthetically, not easy to wear but for sure great to have in a divers collection. Great post and pictures Jeff. Thanks Matt
Congrats, Jeff !!! wow !!! It´s a very, very important unit, with a a very rare 1st Gen. dial and hands in excellent condition, wellcome to the Ploprof owners fans club !!! I´m very happy for you, my friend. Kind regards from Spain. Carlos.
Thanks for your words
Thanks for your words, Jeff, but you are very modest, you´re agreat connoiseur. Cheers !!!
Congratulations on the great new, er, old PloProf!
What a stunning example of a classic diver. This design is a polarizing one. You look at its chunky angles -- all squares and intersecting circles, and at first think -- "What?!" Then, your eyes start roving over the case a bit more, then the dial; notici...
Thanks Daos !
for me it was not "love at first sight", it took me several years to get accustomed to that design ! Cheers Jeff
Congrats and Thanks Jeff..
You have not only feasted our eyes with those delicious pictures, but have educated us too. A BIG Thank You. Ed
The perfect Omega . . .
. . . for a Purist Consiglieri. One slap across the face with the Ploprof on your wrist will be enough to shut up any chiacchierone!...
Specially if a big hand... Cheers !!!...
Cool post ....
always been a sucker for there over engineered diver, you post is making me consider one of these legendary Omega. Thanks Drew
Merci mon ami !
c'est en grande partie ta montre qui m'a donné envie d'une Ploprof ! Amicalement Jeff
that is a superb example Jeff
like Gary i had the later model although it was only a couple of years ago i realised there were 2 versions. its great to see a 40 year old dive watch in original condition especially as it looks to have been used for its correct purpose. Jeff, you are de...
A classic watch in its own class !!
HI Jeff I have a warm spot for these watches... They are not that BIG in comparison to today's styles .... very wearable watch. This is a FORM fits function... You know at the factory these watches were tested to 1000m before shipping them out !! I just g...
the watch is pretty much wearable in today's standards, as wearable as any Panerai for instance. Plus the cool design is very up to date ;-) Cheers Jeff
I really like that rugged look. Tools watches are cool. If I didn't already have so many projects on my plate, I would probably get one. Best regards, George
... the condition looks excellent indeed. congrats on such great catch. stefan
Huge congratulations Dr Strong!!
You've achieved one of my watch/life goals so my hat is off to you. I dearly love the original PloProf and have done so since my best mate inherited one from his dad who was a mad keen diver in the 70's. The closest I get to owning one is admiring his, he...
That's the one.
Agnelli sure looks cool in that shot, the archetype of a thousand yard stare. Thanks Jeff. Take care, Zac
great watch drstrong and thanks for the detailed review
One of the best and one of the most technically advanced Omega of its time, it didn't have an helium valve but during the water resistance tests, it resisted to 1370m !! The watch just stopped to function, so in fact the watch was resistant to twice the o...
