The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean is fast on its way to becoming a modern classic. Both its imposing size and appearances in James Bond films has made it instantly recognisable in the world of luxury watches.
This model is a limited edition and was made exclusively for members of Special Air Service 22 regiment, more commonly known as the SAS.
The SAS is arguably the most efficient Special Forces in the world and their exploits, such as their activity in the 1980 Iranian Embassy Siege, have become the stuff of legends.
The selection process for the SAS is notoriously tough and they only accept the most elite soldiers.
The SAS limited edition differs from the regular Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean as the case back is engraved with the famous winged SAS logo with their legendary motto ‘Who Dares Wins’. Also on the left hand side of the case its engraved ‘Always A Little Further’.
This is a line from a passage of a poem that members of the SAS are told to memorise during selection. The poem is called The Golden Journey to Samarkand and the line is from a passage is called The Pilgrim. These watches being only available to members of the SAS are extremely rare and it’s thought that only around 300 exist.
