Omega reissues 1970s Jacques Cousteau Ploprof watch


Straight out of the 1970s and into 2009, the Omega Ploprof watch is being reissued, albeit for a price as chunky as the timepiece.

It's a large diver's watch, designed in collaboration with legendary sea adventurer Jacques Cousteau and reissued with more or less the same looks as the original (aside from a little bit of added colour). In terms of features, it offers up a Co-Axial Caliber 8500 movement, stainless steel case, water-resistance to 1,200m, a sapphire crystal and bezel (with push-button lock) and what everyone needs on a watch – a shark-proof bracelet.

Look out for it later in the year, priced around £5,000.
