Omega celebrated their 70th anniversary back in the beginning of November this year. Seventy years ago, Omega opened its doors assisting the British military during World War II with their timepieces. To commemorate this, Omega will be releasing four Seamaster limited edition timepieces. The first two limited edition timepieces were first seen at this year’s Baselworld. The last two will be released as part of the new offering for Omega’s 70thanniversary.
Two of the watches, first seen at Baselworld, sport stainless steel while the remaining two are composed of platinum. All four of the timepieces are driven by METAS-certified master chronometer movements. These movements are resistant to magnetic fields of up to 15,000 gauss.
The two stainless steel iterations feature a polished bezel and an opaline silvery domed dial. Each timepiece is presented in a special soft brown leather collector’s box, with spare NATO strap in the original Admiral grey color. The timepiece collection will also include a spare leather strap and a strap changing tool. The omega logo is embossed upon the polished stainless-steel crown and steel buckles of each of the two stainless steel timepieces.
On the central second model, driven by the Master Chronometer 8806, the hour hand domed, domed minute and domed seconds hand are all diamond polished 18K white gold. The strap is in a blue-grey leather. Additionally, the small seconds stainless-steel timepiece features a sub-dial at 6 o’clock and a leaf style hour and domed minute hand which are also diamond polished 18k white gold. The stainless-steel timepieces have a very limited run, only 1948 pieces will be sold.
As for the remaining two platinum timepieces, they are powered by the Master Chronometer movements which include an 18k Sedna gold rotor and balance bridge. Both of these timepieces feature a 950 platinum case with a polished bezel, and an opaline 950 platinum domed dial. They also include a polished crown embossed with a vintage symbol like all of the iterations within this special 70thanniversary release.
Each of the very limited platinum edition timepieces are immaculately presented in a soft-faux brown leather collector’s box, with additional leather straps and a strap changing tool. Unlike the stainless-steel timepieces, the extremely limited-edition platinum watches will be limited to just 70 pieces each.
