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.

    I find it strange that the reissue of the “Ploprof” still doesnt exist on Omegas official website (nor do other reissues such as the Alaska Project Speedmaster) I even tried to order a Ploprof reissue at Watches of Switzerland in early 2009 and none of the staff had heard of the original let alone the reissue!
    Once they had contacted Omega they actually thanked me for advising them about this information

  • You know this watch really does not look that retro. I like it, but it could pass for a watch in just about any decade.
