This Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Platinum Orange Ceramic (ref. 18.104.22.168.99.001) looks like an extremely expensive crossover between their flashy Seamaster Planet Ocean 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 the Cal. 8615 automatic 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.
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.
With its new Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra GMT (Ref. 22.214.171.124.01.001), 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.
As you may have already guessed, the new Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Golf (Ref. 126.96.36.199.01.001) 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.
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. 188.8.131.52.01.002 & ref. 184.108.40.206.01.001).
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.
The 2010 Seamaster Aqua Terra XXL Small Seconds is inspired by Omega’s pocket timepieces from the 1930s. Presented at the SIHH 2010, it was issued as a limited edition of just 176 pieces: half of them in white gold and the other half in 18-karat rose gold. Equipped with a Unitas-based pocket watch caliber, the timekeeper boasts an extra-large body almost 50 whopping millimeters in diameter!
Being an official time-keeper of the Olympic Games anno 1932, Omega just can’t waste such a good excuse to introduce yet another special edition diving watch. Although I literally hear the creepy sound of raising eyebrows right this moment, I still feel obliged to tell you about this limited edition timekeeper and offer you to meet the new self-winding Seamaster Diver Vancouver 2010!
