Among the highly expected watchmaking brands at BaselWorld 2014, today we take a glance at the Omega brand. The Swiss brand surprises us every year with very modern timepieces filled in with history.
The Omega Speedmaster Mark II model
The Omega brand chooses to bring up to date the iconic model Speedmaster Chronograph Mark II launched in 1969 while keeping its original vintage design.
The Speedmaster Mark II model was originally designed in tribute to the first steps of the man on the moon. This model was equipped with a manual winding caliber 861 while the new model is powered by the famous Co-Axial caliber 3330, an exceptional automatic movement with a Si14 silicon balance spring.
Three different models are available for this watch, but a touch of color enhances the look of the grey dial model, as the second hand and the central markers minutes have been coated with a fluorescent orange color and Superluminova. This detail strongly distinguishes this model from its predecessor. The stainless steel case remains the same with a diameter of 42mm and water resistance up to 100 meters.
Omega’s watch lovers will be delighted to rediscover this legendary timepiece!
A new member in the Constellation family
At the dawn of Baselworld 2014 Omega introduced the newcomer in the discreet but elegant Constellation collection: the Pluma watch. It is a very feminine timepiece with a soft design and a mechanical movement with automatic winding.
We can notice the very elegant pearl dials on these models of 27mm. The new watches of the Constellation Pluma collection have 11 diamond indexes and a bezel of the same material.”Pluma” Constellation offers models in stainless steel with a blue dial but also a bicolor alternative to stainless steel case with 18K red gold and white dial. Those models will be exclusively presented at BaselWorld and are sold with a guarantee of four years.
Let the seduction begin!
