Who is King of the Sea? The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean which is preferred by Mr Bond or the Rolex Sea-Dweller which is part of the standard diving equipment of the famous Comex divers? John Holbrook wrote a comparative review on his website. Two professional divers, one with decades of experience and the other one by a brand with decades of waterresistant watches which resulted in the new Seamaster (Planet Ocean).

Personally, I think it is nice to see how they hold up to each other, but most readers are biased before they even start to read and the out come probably does not affect their original point of view. Anyway, this review is well written and contains great pictures of both giants. So, who is King of the Sea? Click this link to find out.

  • Hi there I think I read this a long time back and its a great article. Good to review it again. I had a very short writeup on my watch blog about the Bond watch (for me at least) nothing to do with the ultimate dive watch comparison. Do check it out if you have the time. Cheers


  • @Raphael:

    A long time back shouldn’t be possible, the article was written on the 3rd of February 2007. I always check for those things when posting something here 🙂

    I will check your article. Thanks for notifying.

  • My bad. It was the earlier comparison of the Omega Seamaster and Rolex Sub he did in ’03 that I thought was this one. Memory playing tricks on me. Cheers Raph 🙂
