In an ideal world, people long to be revered in the sophistication and class of fashion idols, celebrity role models, and even their pessimistic peers. However, you can only train and groom yourself to a certain point before needing the help of fashion accessories and clothing to help achieve a specific look. Watches play a huge role in completing an attire, and there’s no denying the impact of a timepiece that makes an outfit whole.
In 2021, many brands have surfaced to compete with veteran and seasoned households for the best watchmaker’s title in the market. It may even be overwhelming to determine which one is truly the best in class, but the names that stay at the top are there for a reason. Omega continues to prove that fact by continuing to produce top-of-the-line and the highest quality watches for decades.
Seamaster Co-Axial Chronometer Chronograph Men’s
One of the newest additions to the Omega Seamaster collection is this beautiful and vibrant chronometer that features a tri-colour design that is an eye-catcher for a diver’s watch. The fabric NATO strap features a white, orange, and black striped colourway, which gives the illusion that the chronograph is larger than it actually is.
Complementing the unique strap exquisitely combines indexes and hands surrounding a uniform dual graph layout. The silver-toned arrow hands are large and visible during the night or day, making it an ideal partner for most outdoor activities. At 45.5m in diameter, the watch pairs nicely with any kind of wrist size.
A power reserve of around 60 hours is combined with incredible 600-meter water resistance to make a statement that this chronometer can be used professionally. The Seamaster Co-Axial Chronometer is powered by the well-known and reliable Tissot Calibre 9900, which can also be seen in the more expensive offerings in the Omega lineup.
Speedmaster Manual-Winding Silver Dial Men’s
Many would refer to Omega as a veteran brand and a household that has seen most of the different wristwatch engineering periods. However, the company not only innovates the newest complications and engineering but also blends the beauty of the past with modern timepieces.
The ingenuity of Omega’s watchmakers is made more apparent with their new manual-winding addition to the Speedmaster series that’s paired with a beautiful silver dial. A stainless steel strap is blended seamlessly with the same material for the bezel and the watch face and gives a classic yet tasteful look.
The watch face features a triple graph layout that is placed cleverly in an inverted isosceles that looks incredibly exquisite whenever the hands reach 12 O’Clock simultaneously twice a day. The 18 jewels embedded on the indexes are surrounded by crimson red inlay on the bezel which contrasts with the subtle tones found throughout the timepiece.
The Speedmaster Manual-Winding in Silver Dial retains the subtle aesthetic even with the dimensions used, and at 27mm in diameter, one would mistake this watch for a ladies’ watch. However, the manual-winding Speedmaster is indeed a men’s watch with a comfortable fit for medium and small hands. Powering this rather quaint and minute frame is a Calibre 1861 with a 48-hour power reserve with 50-meter water resistance.
Seamaster Nekton Edition Automatic Black Dial Men’s
Omega sometimes releases special edition watches such as this Nekton edition in the Seamaster collection. Whenever they do, their stocks quickly get sold out when enthusiasts and fans get wind of the news. The popularity of special edition Seamasters will always be eye-candy to everyone who owns at least one of these beautiful timepieces.
This special edition also features a unique design in typical Seamaster fashion that can be seen when following the stainless steel strap to the bezel and watch body. The black dial is layered with a mesmerizing ocean wave design that adds to this piece’s exclusivity. Large and embedded indexes are paired with the hour and minute hands to contrast the minute details of the watch face.
The 42mm diameter case is also accentuated with the subtle indexes that may look a little too simplistic for some individuals. Still, preferences are welcome as this special edition Seamaster isn’t for everyone. Power reserves are estimated to be around 55 hours, and the water-resistance of 300 meters is also an excellent addition to an already feature-packed timepiece.
Omega has definitely stepped up their game this year in terms of quality, design, and features’ exclusivity. Enthusiasts, horologists, and fans of the brand are all excited to see what’s next in line for the legendary watch household as 2021 shapes up to be an exciting year for wristwatch innovation.
