Omega Globemaster, understated and elegant like the man who wears it. The perfect object2desire for Christmas
The Globemaster is already a legendary name in the OMEGA family. Now it has been updated to become the world’s first Master Chronometer, further enhancing its reputation within the watchmaking industry. Along with a new standard of quality, the simple yet captivating design makes this watch a true object of desire. For this model, the stainless steel case features a hard metal scratchproof fluted bezel, with a blackened Constellation star, and hands and indexes which have also been filled with illuminous Super-LumiNova. The caseback includes a stainless steel Central Observatory medallion, while the opaline silver “Pie Pan” dial is reminiscent of the first 1952 Constellation model. The design is finished with grey leather strap, and at its core, the watch is driven by OMEGA’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8900, featuring revolutionary anti-magnetic technology.

Pre-Baselworld January 2016 – Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m Master Chronometer 39.5mm Sedna Gold, brief overview.
There are quite a few things to say about this new watch by Omega. Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m / Master Chronometer / 39.5mm / Sedna Gold. You spotted it: new movement (and used for the first time in the Planet Ocean collection), new and smaller size and finally a new material. And whatever the brand says about it, for us it’s not a ladies’ watch but rather an elegant “unisex” edition. Overview of this new toolish but luxurious diver by Omega to be introduced at Baselworld 2016.
As of now, the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m was available in 4 sizes: one edition dedicated to men with a 45.5mm case, one for the GMT editions at 43.5mm, one more “unisex” edition at 42mm (even if clearly, the buyers are mainly males) and one edition dedicated to ladies at 37.5mm.
Even if visually extremely close to its sisters of the collection, the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m Master Chronometer 39.5mm Sedna Gold changes everything in the details: new movement, new dimensions, new dial, new materials and even new strap. … First thing to note is the introduction of the new series of movements by Omega, the Master Chronometer (introduced in the Globemaster and coming with the METAS certification, that is used for the first time in the Seamaster Planet Ocean collection. This new edition features the Calibre 8801 (visible thought the caseback) with the same architecture as the 8500 (Co-Axial escapement, double barrel and automatic winding) but now with highly antimagnetic properties (as resistant to 15,000 Gauss). It seems that for the coming years, Omega will implement the Master Chronometer movements in the entire range of watches – and they have already started in the Speedmaster collection, with the new antimagnetic chronograph with moon-phase.
