Omega Speedmaster Moonphase Chronograph Master Chronometer Swiss

Scheduled to be presented soon at the upcoming Baselworld 2016 trade show, the new Omega Speedmaster Moonphase Chronograph Master Chronometer (ref. 304.33.44.52.03.001) is one of the most attractive takes on the Swiss brand's legendary "moon watch." 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.


Omega Speedmaster Professional Apollo 11 (Ref. 311.62.42.30.06.001) Swiss

Although there is a feeling of something not being "right" when you look at a luxury watch, which is supposed to be a sort of homage to the timekeeper Neil Armstrong has worn when setting his foot at Moon's dusty surface, the new limited edition Omega Speedmaster Professional Apollo 11 (Ref. 311.62.42.30.06.001) looks absolutely stunning with its chocolate-colored nylon strap matching the color of the dial. The latter, by the way, looks especially grand thanks to its rose gold hour markers and hands that provide the timekeeper with an even better sense of depth and dimension.


Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Platinum Orange Ceramic Swiss

This Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Platinum Orange Ceramic (ref. 232.93.44.22.99.001) looks like an extremely expensive crossover between their flashy Seamaster Planet Ocean automatic chronograph that the brand has introduced almost three years ago and a tad fresher Co-Axial GMT model. From the latter it gets basic design and movement, and the former supplied this beautiful artifact with its ostentatious orange-and-polished-metal color scheme. The expensive part is delivered courtesy of mirror-polished and sand-blasted platinum, lots of it.


Omega Speedmaster Mark II 1969 Reissue Swiss

At the upcoming Baselworld 2014 event, the Swiss watchmaking house Omega will present its new Omega Speedmaster Mark II 1969 Reissue (ref. 327.10.43.50.06.001). As the name states quite clearly, 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.


2012 in Review: Top 12 Watches of the Year! Japanese / Swiss

The year 2012 wasn't exactly rewarding for the better part of the population. Greece didn't default, Doomsday didn't happen and Valve yet again failed to deliver HL:3. However, there were certain bright spots, too: Spain emerged victorious in the 2012 UEFA Euro cup and the European politicians somehow managed to prevent collapse of the single currency. The watchmakers from Europe and Japan, too, managed to introduce a number of great watches, although there was nothing truly revolutionary neither in terms of design, nor technical characteristics (here I am talking about mass-produced models, not some ultra-expensive one-offs).


Omega De Ville Co-Axial Chronograph in Rose Gold Swiss

Omega doesn't update its collections too often, but when it does, it does it with style. Offered in massive, 18-karat rose gold body, the new Omega De Ville Co-Axial Chronograph (ref. 431.53.42.51.02.001) is powered by their fairly fresh automatic movement and features an extremely elegant dial layout.


Omega Speedmaster Racing Chronograph Automatic Swiss

Although the new Omega Speedmaster Racing (ref. 326.32.40.50.06.001) automatic chronograph watch takes the collection back to the classic tri-compax layout (as you probably know, unlike more modern versions of the piece, 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.


Omega Spacemaster Z-33 Analog Digital Flight Computer Swiss

It's been years since Omega discontinued its (almost) legendary Speedmaster Professional X-33 digital analog watch that directly competed against a similar model from Breitling. Finally, the Swiss watchmaker, which is mostly known for its diving timekeepers, has presented a totally reworked version of the piece. Called Omega Spacemaster Z-33 (ref. 325.92.43.79.01.001) and featuring stunning (although somewhat controversial) design, the new quartz-powered flight computer clearly 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.


Omega Seamaster 300M James Bond 007 50th Anniversary Collector’s Piece Swiss

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 automatic 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.
