Presented at the Baselworld 2016 trade show, the Speedmaster Moonphase Chronograph Master Chronometer (ref. 304.33.44.52.03.001) is one of the most attractive takes on Omega’s constantly growing collection of the legendary “moon watches.” Combining striking exterior with an advanced, anti-magnetically shielded movement, the device tries really hard to be worth every single dollar that the Swiss watchmaker wants you to spend on it.
At the Baselworld 2014 event, the Swiss watchmaking house has presented its Omega Speedmaster Mark II 1969 Reissue (ref. 3184.108.40.206.06.001) automatic chronograph. The model was designed in the same style as the iconic Speedmaster chronograph that first went on sale 45 years ago. It looks like the number of great watches inspired by the great decade is going to get yet another worthy member.
Omega Speedmaster, the legendary “space” chronograph that is never getting old, has recently been reintroduced as a “two-tone” model and also slightly refreshed. Available with at least two dials and two colors of 18-karat gold alloy, the 2013 Omega Speedmaster 57 (ref. 3220.127.116.11.01.001) is more in line with their current product range.
Omega doesn’t update its collections too often, but when it does, it does it with style. Offered in a massive, 18-karat rose gold body, the new Omega De Ville Co-Axial Chronograph (ref. 418.104.22.168.02.001) sports their fairly fresh Cal. 9301 co-axial automatic movement and features an extremely elegant dial layout.
Although the new Omega Speedmaster Racing (ref. 322.214.171.124.06.001) chronograph takes the iconic collection back to the classic tri-compax layout (as you probably know, unlike more modern versions, the original 1957 Speedmaster that was powered by the legendary Omega caliber 321 hand-wound mechanism featured only the usual three hands for displaying time, as well as three chronograph sub-dials with no calendar), the redesigned timepiece still offers you a highly legible dial and all the signature elements that you can expect from the watch that accompanied the first man on the Moon, including the famous tachymeter scale, which is engraved right on the black fixed bezel and painted glaring yellow.
It’s been years since Omega discontinued its (almost) legendary digital/analog Speedmaster Professional X-33 that, in its heyday, directly competed against a similar model from Breitling. Finally, the Swiss watchmaker has presented a totally reworked version of the piece. The 2012 Omega Spacemaster Z-33 (ref. 3126.96.36.199.01.001) features an absolutely stunning (although somewhat controversial) design and belongs to the “love it or hate it” category. As you may have already guessed, the titanium-clad monster from outer space was first demonstrated in flesh earlier this month during Baselworld 2012 event. Here is our first “initial impressions”-style review on this beast.
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the legendary franchise, the Swiss watchmaker has released its new Omega Seamaster 300M James Bond 007 50th Anniversary Collector’s Piece diver. Sporting numerous references to the immortal franchise, the device may be of great interest to the huge crowd of fans. As one might have expected, the new timepiece was presented by Mr. Daniel Craig himself.
Did you ever want a Speedmaster, but still felt like the watch on offer at your local boutique missed something, or maybe you just wanted something new? Something less boring? Well, the famous Swiss brand has finally offered a refreshed version of its classic Omega Speedmaster Co-Axial Chronograph (ref. 3188.8.131.52.01.001) that now features an innovative variety of the good old bi-compax layout, all courtesy of their new Caliber 9300 self-winding mechanism that basically blends to sub-dials into one, which is not only more readable, but is actually cool.
Celebrating the upcoming 40th Anniversary of Apollo 15 mission (it happened on the 26th of July, 1971,) the Swiss brand has prepared a new Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch “Apollo 15” 40th Anniversary Limited Edition (ref. 3184.108.40.206.01.003). As the rest of the series, the “Apollo 15” comes in a 42 mm stainless steel case.
While the 2008 year Five-Counter Speedmaster Chinese Olympic Games featured a daring five-compax dial layout, the 2011 Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 44 London Chronograph sports a more subdued, traditional design with only three sub-dials.
The 2011 Omega Hour Vision Co-Axial Skeleton Platinum (ref. 4220.127.116.11.64.001) has the usual solid dial swapped for a sapphire one that offers a super view at its skeletonized co-axial movement.
For the year of 2011, Omega re-introduces the Ladymatic line from the 1950s. Officially unveiled during the SIHH 2011 event, the new collection features sensual, flowing lines, as well as their high-grade Omega Co-Axial calibre 8520/8521 that was created specifically for the brand’s smaller pieces. Prepare to fall in love with the Ladymatic DeVille (ref. 418.104.22.168.55.001) that will bedazzle you with polished rose gold surfaces, numerous diamonds, and the most beautiful mother-of-pearl dial!
The vintage-styled Omega Number 9 Milestone 1941 is a breath of fresh air in –let’s face it– a long line of elegant but dull and not particularly inspiring products sold under the Omega brand.
The Swiss luxury brand Omega has just revealed a pair of new members of their Constellation Double Eagle collection. Available in titanium and red gold, both chronographs will be sold as Double Eagle Mission Hills Numbered Edition. Yes, they may be not as sober and stern as the De Ville collection, but they surely look as stately as one can possibly get.
Has it ever occurred to you that two counters are enough for a normal chronograph, that three is okay and even four is nothing but tolerable (and only look good on certain watches like this Eberhard & Co. Chrono4 BADBOY)? Well, some people at Omega consider five counters just right for the official timekeeper of the Olympic Games since 1932. Positioned like the famous five Olympic Rings, but apparently not sized as evenly, the counters add a “days of the week” indicator and a 7-day chronograph display to the usual hours, minutes, and small second sub-dials. Meet the Omega Speedmaster Five Counter Olympic Beijing automatic chronograph!
