About the Book
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.
