Omega’s dressy line of Constellation timekeepers has recently been updated with a super-compact model that now packs their high-grade Omega Co-Axial Calibre 8521 self-winding movement into a diminutive 27 mm rose gold case. Although some may find this particular Constellation ref. 184.108.40.206.57.001 with its loads of gold, gold-colored mother-of-pearl, and a set of huge diamonds as blingy as a wedding gift from Tutankhamun himself, it sure looks great in its own daring way.
The Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Chronograph (Ref. 3220.127.116.11.01.001) is now available in an exclusive “orange” gold body. The alloy makes the precious gadget look even more gorgeous being accented by a black dial, black ceramic bezel, and an extremely comfortable Alligator leather strap of the same color.
With its new Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra GMT (Ref. 18.104.22.168.01.001), the watchmaker has finally added a model with a second time-zone functionality to its dressy Aqua Terra line. Although the dial looks a bit more cluttered now than on the original three-hander, I must admit that the timepiece still passed its primary test of telling the time in two separate time zones with flying colors. We here can only hope that the brand will soon decide to expand the range with another similarly styled, but more compact models 38-40 (tops!) millimeters in diameter for those of us still preferring less conspicuous objects of luxury on their wrists.
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. 322.214.171.124.01.001) 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.
It took the Swiss watchmaker almost a year to present a refreshed version of its breathtaking (pardon the cliche, but I mean it) Ladymatic DeVille. Now sold as Omega Ladymatic DeVille ref. 4126.96.36.199.63.001, the timekeeper offers an even more balanced mix of colors and textures with its perfectly executed dial, brushed and polished case, and an in-house self-winding movement of the high-grade sort that is woefully rare to find in timepieces designed for ladies.
As you may have already guessed, the new Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Golf (Ref. 188.8.131.52.01.001) celebrates the Swiss brand’s growing ties with the world of elite sport, which is usually associated with luxury sports cars, expensive wine, and Tiger Woods. Although the choice of the model looks less than obvious in this particular case (Seamaster Golf? Oh, come on!) the watch itself may be of interest to those who want a Seamaster, but search for a version with an unusual color scheme.
In 1948, when London happened to host its first Olympic Games, the Swiss watchmaker has also presented its very first Omega Seamaster hand-wound timekeeper. Now, 63 years later, as the British capital is making the final preparations to host the 2012 Olympic Games, Omega reintroduces the model as the Omega Seamaster 1948 Co-Axial “London 2012” Limited Edition Automatic.
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.
Last May Omega has presented its refreshed Planet Ocean collection. Besides a gorgeous (but too posh) Liquidmetal model and a couple of watches designed for ladies, there was presented a sweet pair of practical and robust-looking Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean chronographs (ref. 220.127.116.11.01.002 & ref. 18.104.22.168.01.001).
While the 2008 year Five-Counter Speedmaster Chinese Olympic Games was presented with a daring five-compax dial layout, the new Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 44 London Chronograph sports a more subdued, traditional design with only three sub-dials. Looking way more serene than the aforementioned model, the new timekeeper is also a lot more versatile capable of being worn not only with jeans and polo shirts, but also with an expensive formal suit if you are more into that James Bond, Agent 007 kind of style.
