I'm looking at buying an Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean but have been warned by a friend about the downsides of automatic watches. My friend owns an Omega Seamaster Professional automatic and was recently away in Iraq for six months during which he left his watch back in the UK for safe keeping. When he got back he found it wouldn't work and has had to take it in for expensive repairs where they told him the problems came from leaving it inactive for such a long time. I work in Afghanistan on rotations of two months at a time and would be leaving my watch back in the UK during this time. If I bought a Seamaster Planet Ocean am I likely to experience the same problem every time I leave it inactive for two months, needing costly repairs? Also, does anyone know if there is a titanium version of the Planet Ocean?
