Omega watches is a renowned Swiss watch brand with an impressive history, best known for its sporty chronographs, professional dive watches, and co-axial movements. The Omega Speedmaster was the first watch worn on the moon in 1969, and a Speedmaster has been part of all six lunar missions ever since. The brand is also well-known for its ability to measure time for sporting events. For more than a century, the Swiss-based manufacturer has been in charge of timing the most reputable competitions.
Omega became the official timekeeper of the Olympic Games in 1932, and they are still the official timekeeper today. James Bond swapped from Rolex to Omega in 1995, and agent 007 still wears an Omega watch in the most recent Bond films.
Here’s a list of the best Omega watches.
Olympic Official Timekeeper Limited Edition
One of the best Omega watches for confident men is the Olympic Official Timekeeper Limited Edition Watch. This timepiece exudes vintage charm. This is also true of the watch’s measurements, which have a now-rarely seen diameter of 39 mm. The housing has a round shape and a polished finish. A fixed bezel with the same type of finishing is also included, as are large Chrono pushers and a crown on the right side of the case band.
Its serrated crown has an engraved logo of the brand that was designed in a retro style. The back of the piece, which has a water resistance of 30 meters, is made of solid metal and features etchings with the emblem of the upcoming Olympics, and also the number that represents the timekeeper’s place in the limited edition. Omega used sapphire for the crystal, which was glare-proofed on the inside. The design of a crisp white lacquered dial of the piece reflects the piece’s classic appearance once again. The face of the Olympic Official Timekeeper Limited Edition resembles that of a classic pocket watch.
This was featured by the use of Breguet-styled Arabic numerals, as well as blued steel hands and pointers. Its dial is designed in a bi-compax configuration. Two Chrono sub-counters are present. The first is intended to be used to track 30-minute intervals, while the other is a small incremental seconds counter. Caliber 3203 is used. It has a mechanical movement that is manually wound, a Co-Axial escapement, and a column-wheel chronograph complication. The caliber contains 33 jewels and has a free-spring balance, with a frequency of 28,800 vph. Its supported movement has a 52-hour power storage capacity. It also has chronometer certification, which ensures its precision.
Seamaster Aqua Terra 44 London Chronograph
This amazing watch has a polished and brushed case with a 44 mm diameter and the “London 2012” Olympic emblem etched on the stainless steel case back. The watch’s most eye-catching feature is the blue vertically striped teak-pattern dial, which is a branding of the label’s Aqua Terra family.
There are three sub-dials: a small seconds counter at 9 o’clock, a 30-minute chronograph sub-dial at 3 o’clock, and a 12 hour counter at 6 o’clock. The date window opens at 4:30 p.m. For excellent legibility, the central hour, minute, and chronograph seconds hands are made of polished and brushed 18 Ct gold and coated with white Super-LumiNova.
The Caliber 3313 automatic chronograph movement powers the Seamaster Aqua Terra 44 London Chronograph watch. It features a column wheel mechanism and a Co-Axial Escapement for increased precision, sturdiness, and sustainability. This self-winding mechanism has a 52-hour power reserve. This Olympic wristwatch has a fantastic water-resistance rating of up to 150 meters.
Speedmaster HB-SIA Co-Axial GMT Chronograph
The Speedmaster HB-SIA Co-Axial GMT Chronograph’s intriguing and mysterious title is a reference to the world’s first completely solar-powered aircraft (the Solar Impulse HB-SIA), the development of which was partially sponsored and technically supported by Omega. This Speedmaster is also unique in that its case is made of titanium, a material that Omega rarely uses.
The HB-SIA watch’s dial, with its 24-hour track, resembles the interface of a Speedmaster Broad Arrow GMT Co-Axial Chronograph. Even hours are indicated by white luminous markers, while odd hours are indicated by Arabic numerals ranging from 1 to 23. The central hands, as well as the chronograph subdials, are also very bright and easy to read. Just the date window appears to be slightly hidden on the carbon fiber exterior.
Its orange GMT hand with a plane-shaped top that shows time in the second time zone is an excellent choice for such a model. Its 30 minute counter is located at 3 o’clock, the 12 hour counter is located at 6 o’clock, and the small seconds counter is located at 9 o’clock. A tachymeter scale is also engraved on a black fixed bezel. The Caliber 3603 automatic movement powers the Speedmaster HB-SIA Co-Axial GMT Chronograph. This COSC-certified chronometer features Omega’s Co-Axial escapement, a column-wheel chronograph, and a free-sprung balance. When fully wounded, it has a power reserve of 55 hours when not worn.
Constellation Double Eagle 4-Counters Chrono
This gorgeous Double Eagle watch has four subdials. With a single glance at a boldly designed black dial with a unique truncated Clou de Paris motif, this notable thing is the very first element you will notice. Subdials represent the small seconds, the seven-day recorder, and the 12-hour and 30-minute chronograph counters, which are aesthetically arranged across the dial.
The Omega Constellation Double Eagle 4-Counters Chronograph comes in two styles. The first one had an 18-carat orange gold case, a solid gold bezel with black rubber Arabic numerals, and a black rubber strap with a satin-brushed stainless steel foldover clasp. This beautiful piece’s crown and pushers are also made of brushed orange-gold.
The second version is made from stainless steel and also has a black aluminum bezel with silver Arabic numerals that suit the case and sub-dial rims. It comes with a black rubber strap. They have facetted hour markers in 18 Ct white or orange-gold, truncated gold Dauphine hands, and the applied OMEGA symbol and name. The revolutionary Omega Co-Axial Calibre 3890 self-winding movement powers the Constellation Double Eagle 4-Counters Chrono timepiece.
