Omega – watches that inspire (my favorites)
Today, a new post from the series “my favorites”. This time I am writing about Omega watches. I will present four watches that I like the most.
Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean in a more elegant edition. Design knocks on the knees. The combination of red gold with black color of the bezel shows the true elegance of this watch, and do not forget that this is a diver watch with water resistance to 600 meters. Watch has a ceramic bezel with a diving scale made of 18k gold, through the Ceragold technology. 45.5 millimeter, gold case hides the Omega 9301 movement. This mechanism rises to life chronograph with 60-minute and 12-hour counter. Date window is over the 6 o’clock. Biggest advantage of this watch is its remarkable clarity of reading. Helium valve is an interesting addition to this watch.
Classic Planet Ocean, in a special edition of “007 Skyfall”. The feature of this limited edition is the logo “007” instead of the standard index at 7 o’clock. In addition to the ceramic bezel in black, the watch is made of brushed and polished stainless steel.
As every watch in this series is ready for underwater adventure, it’s waterproof to 600 meters I mentioned the watch above. Pointers and indexes are coated with Super-LumiNova, so we can read the time in the dark. Black structured dial hides a small date window at 3 o’clock. Just like the watch before, this watch has a helium valve.
Another watch is no longer a diver. It is a classic, elegant watch. Simple design: Envelope, indexes and pointers made of 18K red gold and brown leather strap. The mechanism of the OMEGA Co-Axial is a caliber 8611 hidden in 41 millimeter envelope and rises to live annual calendar at 3 o’clock, and basic functions. Front and back are covered with sapphire glass. Water resistance is 100m.
Speedmaster ’57 is one of the most emblematic model of the Omega watches. This model has participated in missions to the moon. The combination of red gold and stainless steel distinguishes it from other watches.The watch has a smaller second dial at 9 o’clock and 12-hour counter at 3 o’clock, and the date window at the 6 o’clock. The heart of the watch is the OMEGA Co-Axial caliber 9300 mechanism – the first chronograph in the family mechanisms Omega Co-Axial with 60h power reserve. Gold bezel has a tachymeter. Front and back of the watch covered with sapphire glass with anti-reflective coating.
