The Manual Wind: Omega Globemaster Master Chronometer
Excellence 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.
The 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.
