The Manual Wind: Omega Globemaster Master Chronometer


CO_Globemaster_campagne_130. is often awarded with a keepsake.  The timepiece has been a symbol of achievement through history and today is no different.  Omega has taken on the challenge of creating a movement that passes new timekeeping parameters classifying a movement as a Master Chronometer.  Of course having accomplished this challenge passing these new tests outlined by The Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology, Omega has come out with a classic new watch design.  The Omega Globemaster is the symbol of this achievement.
CO_Globemaster_fuite_130. Globemaster joins the Constellation family of pieces by Omega.  At a classic 39mm in diameter, this piece is meant to be the timeless introduction to an exceptional movement.  A tightly fluted bezel reminiscent of the Rolex Datejust surrounds a dial known classically to Omega historians, the Pie Pan.  With angles and depth, this dial which was commonly used in the 1970s, adds a historic element to this timepiece.  Under the dial lies the Omega Master Chronometer caliber 8900 movement.  With a silicon balance spring, this automatic movement has bi-directional winding and is anti-magnetic.  The anti-magnetic aspect of this movement steps it up to the next level certifying it as a Master Chronometer.
Made in stainless steel, rose gold, steel and gold, and platinum, this is truly a commemorative timepiece at every price point.  Metal bracelets and crocodile straps to compliment each dial and metal are offered to complete the classic style.  Starting at just under $7,000 for the steel version on a strap, this symbol of accomplishment is certainly attainable.  Might even be worth trading in your Rolex Datejust to obtain.
