    With all the recent fuss about Omega’s Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M ‘SKYFALL’ LE, we thought that we’d go ‘back to basics’, in a manner of speaking. The Seamaster story goes back to 1948, when Omega launched a watch with a water-resistant case with ‘Seamaster’ on the dial, but it wasn’t until 1962 that what has …

    There have been two new Omegas that have stood out for me so far at Baselworld 2013, and the new Speedy Dark Side of the Moon is one of them. This classic and Omega stalwart, whose iterations are seemingly infinite, has been thoroughly modernised in a 44mm black ceramic case with polished and brushed surfaces, …

    Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield returned to Earth yesterday after having handed over his command of the International Space Station (ISS) to his friend and crewmate Pavel Vinogradov. At the time of the launch of this this post his cover of David Bowie’s ‘Space Oddity’ is fast approaching seven million views on YouTube. A farewell to …

    A little while ago I visited the Omega boutique in the Sydney CBD and found a few treasures that were briefly on loan from their museum collection. Knowing that many of you are Speedmaster collectors and enthusiasts, it was obviously incumbent on me to take and share photos of them with you. The Speedmaster was …

    With men’s watches so dominant in the watch industry it is easy for women’s watches to be an afterthought. Men are the major market/ consumers of watches after all, especially in the ‘luxury’ area. There are, however, an increasing number of women who, for a myriad of reasons (including design, size and yes, movements), eschew …

    Today Horologium brings you a post about a model that we wanted to mention when it was launched at Baselworld 2013 but were unable to do so due to the lack of press photos available. For me, this was the standout model of interest and the one I was most interested in seeing – the …

    The Bullhead was one of Baselworld 2013’s most talked about releases from Omega and, in the run up to its appearance at boutiques and retailers, is still a hot topic of horological conversation. Running perhaps in a dead heat in the ‘Omega watch chatter’ stakes is the new all-black Speedmaster. The 44.25mm sized Omega Speedmaster …

    Following on from my posts about Omega’s new 2013 offerings of the Bullhead and the Speedmaster ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ is a third post about one of Omega’s other big announcements for the year, the new Constellation Sedna, made using a new 18k rose gold alloy. Deriving its name from a trans-Neptunian object of …

    The predilection of public officials for expensive watches is well-documented. A rather notable proportion of them seem to reside in Russia and her republics, and the People’s Republic of China. Last year, a former work safety boss in the northern Chinese province of Shaanxi set the mainland Chinese internet afire when he was photographed with …

    Watch magazines, particularly print ones, tend to be photograph-heavy, with visual content largely either close-ups of the watches or highly stylised set pieces. In a rare example of a change from this norm, Chronos FEMME, a Japanese watch and jewellery magazine distributed at watch retailers throughout Japan, recently commissioned illustrator/ artist Anna Higgie to draw …

    In 1947 Omega introduced their first calendar complication watch, the Cosmic Moonphase triple date calendar. It was produced, during the course of its existence, in both square and round cases, and with a variety of metals/ dial colours. It was the brand’s first watch that displayed the time and the date with hands and day, …

  • Following on from the previous post about the very collectible Omega Cosmic is another vintage Omega, this one from an earlier period and perhaps even more rare, the divers watch known as the Omega Marine, first produced in 1932. The patent for this waterproof case was first granted on 10 March, 1930 (patent No. 146310), …

    Last year saw the return of the Omega Bullhead design in a modern re-issue. This year, Omega is delving into their popular Speedmaster archives and releasing a new version of the 1969 Speedmaster Mark II, which was popular for its case shape and ‘racing’ dial, and because it contained the manual-wind Calibre 861. This modern …

    Whilst in Geneva in last week I was invited by Omega (Australia) to visit their Geneva boutique and meet with Mr. Gregory Kissling, Omega’s Head of Product Management, for an introduction to Omega’s new Seamaster Planet Ocean, with its newly patented method for creating an orange ceramic bezel. Officially launched at the boutique on 22 …

    A week or so ago, Omega sent out a darkened photo via Facebook, setting Omega fans in particular into a photoshopping frenzy. Well photoshop no more, as they have released this video teaser. On the basis of this video, in terms of its overall aesthetics, movement and historical note, not only were many guesses on …

    People have breathed a sigh of relief. After all the photo and video teasing, Omega fans seem to have what they want – a new Omega Seamaster 300 that is an homage to the original. Debuting in 1957 and since then, becoming one of Omega’s enduring lines and favourites, not to mention desirable amongst collectors, …

    Earlier this year I blogged about the Omega Speedmaster Mark II re-issue. Today, Horologium brings you live photos of the two versions, with thanks to Omega Australia and the Castlereagh St boutique in Sydney. To reiterate Omega, which not only has a rich archive into which it can delve for inspiration but also a longstanding …

    As previously blogged, earlier this year I had the opportunity to view the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Orange Ceramic. At the same time I also got to see its sibling, the Seamaster Planet Ocean Platinum with diamond-set ceramic and sapphire. Made in a limited edition of eight pieces, the achievement highlighted by Omega with this …

    On the day during which I visited the Sydney Omega boutique to see the Speedmaster Mark II I had expectations only of the Mark II. What other watches I might see did not cross my mind. It was all about the Mark II. What ended up happening is that I went in with one watch at the …
