Detailing the history, development and ownership of one of the most iconic dive watches of all time, the Omega PloProf book covers it all.

This book takes the PloProf information that originally appeared on the DeskDivers.com website and casts it into another dimension, with a vast amount of new information and illustrated with an impressive set of full colour photographs (close on 300 images over 158 pages). Research for the book uncovered previously unknown information including new dial and bezel variations, case manufacturers and an in-depth look at the fakes that have proliferated recently.

The book is written in an easy to digest style and will provide a solid reference for anyone who owns or aspires to own, this seminal dive watch.

Pheomenal resource for any PloProf or dive watch enthusiast. If you are a dive watch nut, you have to order this book. It is the PloProf bible, and no true fan can go without one. I give it my highest recommendation and endorsement. My only caution: If you buy and read the book, your life will no longer be complete without a PloProf.

This is the definitive reference of the ‘proplof’ and if you are serious about investing in one of these watches then this is a MUST have. All aspects of its history is covered in huge detail within its text and is accompanied with beautifully detailed pictures.

Mercifully this book is great value for money (especially when you compare this to other books on the topic of horology) – in fact it’s a ‘drop in the ocean’ compared to buying the actual thing!

A must read for everyone seriously interested in the Ploprof or dive watch lovers in general.
This book covers all aspects of this iconic dive watch, and it does it thoroughly. The amount of factual and pictorial content is impressive to say the least.

I agree with the comments above. There have been many articles written about this iconic dive watch but never before has the information been presented in such an organized and informative book. Jon is clearly an authority and done his homework about the Omega PloProf. The information is invaluable to collectors (dial and bezel variations, fakes identified).

The pictures are outstanding. I was very impressed with the quality of the book, the paper and the cover.

This is a great read if you like dive watches and is highly recommended

A real feast of great info and superb pictures. I was particularly impressed by the 'exploded' view of the watch's construction created using photos of the actual parts, very clever.
The book is also excellent quality, the paper nice and heavy and the pictures and print clean and crisp.
An informative read and great conversation starter.

highly recommended.
