Reviewing The Omega Globemaster

Aesthetically, the Globemaster takes a lot of its influence from the 1952 Omega Constellation, which is probably not a coincidence, as well as the later “C-Shape”. While the ’52 Constellation was not Omega’s first chronometer wristwatch (that came from a limited edition 1948 model), it was the first time the brand offered a chronometer in… Read More »

Omega Watch Review: Speedmaster Moonwatch Alaska Project

The Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Alaska Project was the limited edition Speedmaster watch model that Omega introduced at Baselworld 2008. It happens to have one of the most interesting “limited-edition stories” among the modern limited-edition Omega Speedmaster Moonwatches, in my opinion, and it happens to look really cool. I’ll readily admit that my purchase of this… Read More »

Reviewing Omega Speedmaster Professional Radial Dial 1978

A vintage Speedmaster on its own is hard to find already these days, if you want an all original and authentic watch that is. Aside from the current prices; when I started out with buying and collecting Speedmasters over a decade ago, it wasn’t much of a problem to find a nice vintage piece with… Read More »

Omega Multifunction Quartz Watches

Space travel will remain a dream for most of us, but the dream came true for the German geophysicist Alexander Gerst. This European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut experienced his first tour on the International Space Station (ISS) in 2014. He conducted experiments for almost half a year and photographed the earth in new and fascinating… Read More »

Vintage Omega Speedmaster 145.012

First off, as you’ve likely read in my Vintage Market updates, the 60’s chronograph market has gone through the roof. I’ll write on it again soon, but supplies of specimens absolutely stink. So, even though Speedmasters were still relatively inexpensive 8-12 months ago versus today, I noticed that good, relatively unmolested examples were beginning to… Read More »

Baselworld 2016: Omega Speedmaster “Lunar Dust” Hands-On Watch

Omega went the extra mile at the 2014 Baselworld, playing the vintage card with the Seamaster 300 and the Speedmaster Mark II and also being innovative with the introduction of the first fully antimagnetic movement and the spreading of the co-axial escapement to all collections. New materials are also in the current scope: after the… Read More »

New Omega Speedmaster CK2998 Limited Edition

Omega is nothing if not rigidly respectful of its heritage. Even though the brand impressively released six entirely new Master Chronometer calibers at this year’s Baselworld — including the one used in the new Globemaster Annual Calendar — the brand has opted, as per usual, to stick with the tried-and-true, manual-wind 1861 movement for the… Read More »

Vintage Watches: Omega De Ville Prestige

As someone who very openly enjoys watches that many other people might not find as appealing, I pay particular attention to the series that many brands don’t feature on the homepages of their websites. The Omega De Ville Prestige collection, besides being a somewhat hidden gem within the larger sphere of Seamasters, Speedmasters, and Constellations,… Read More »
