    Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean, NOT Titanium?

    Disclaimer, Omega watch noob here. I received an Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean watch as a gift from my ex-wife several years ago. I haven't worn it much and I now need to sell this watch. However, the stick on the Omega box says " Seamaster Planet Ocean SS Cs+Brc Blu dial OM 23290462103001" Every Omega Seamaster watch with that model number is a Titanium case watch. How come mine says stainless steel(what I assume the SS stands out). The band certainly seems to be titanium but the heft and shine of the case looks like stainless steel. Not sure how to reconcile this when trying to sell on Ebay(or something similar). Here are some pics. Thanks.

    The cards that came with the watch should confirm the model number. They should also state the SN. Put the model number into Omegas site and you'll confirm your watch.

    If the SN doesn't match the watches, you have the wrong cards.

    Pretty sure all the blue 8500 PO were titanium. There was no blue SS model like there is now.

    This is correct and judging by the bezel that is definitely the Ti version.

    You're watch is definitely titanium. It's grade 5 titanium, which can take a polish like stainless steel (regarding your comment about "shine" of the case). That model number is also correct for your watch. I can't say exactly what the "SS" stands for, but as long as the cards match the model number and the serial number I would say there's nothing to worry about.

    Yup what everyone said. Titanium.

    Maybe SS stands for Super Shine, like what you mentioned it being shiny haha

    Thanks everyone for their input. I only have one of the three cards that usually comes with the watched but it does match the model number.

    Odd. Can you show us a pic of the card? Where did your ex buy it from?

    Here's the card and the box pic. Not sure where she bought it from but I know she would only buy from an official reseller.

    Here's the Omega listing for the model number on the box - 232.90.46.21.03.001. Titanium on Titanium bracelet.

    I do agree the 'SS' label is very confusing... I'd be curious if anyone ends up having an explanation...
