Posted on November 7, 2016 at 4:08 PM by / 0

It’s that time of the year again, when we step back from our everyday concerns to spend quality time with family and friends, spread a little seasonal joy and reflect on the year that’s been. It’s also a time for giving. Omega, gathered together some gift ideas that are truly inspiring and beautifully-made treasures which are sure to bring joy long after the delights of the holiday season have passed. So take a few moments to explore – and from everyone at Omega and International Watch Middle East, have a wonderful holiday season!

Globemaster Annual Calendar Limited Edition
Cased in 950 platinum; this 41 mm Limited Edition Globemaster features a polished fluted bezel and sand-blasted 950 platinum “Pie Pan” dial, inspired by the first 1952 Constellation.
Each of its facets includes a month of the year in keeping with the Annual Calendar function.
There is an 18K white gold Constellation star and OMEGA logo, and 18K white gold hands and indexes which have been filled with green enamel. Look closely and you’ll see a crosshair printed at the centre of the dial, which is reminiscent of OMEGA’s long standing tradition of chronometer models. The caseback includes an 18K white gold Central Observatory medallion filled with green enamel. This watch is presented on a green leather strap and is driven by OMEGA’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer Annual Calendar Calibre 8923, featuring revolutionary anti-magnetic technology.

The Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon
This sleek and sporty timepiece salutes the pioneering spirit of the Apollo 8 astronauts, the first people to see the dark side of the moon. This unique model features a black zirconium oxide ceramic dial with striking 18K white gold “Moonwatch”-style hands and two ceramic subdials at 3 and 9 o’clock. A matt chromium nitride tachymeter scale – among the most identifiable design features of the Speedmaster – stands out on the polished ceramic bezel which is set on a 44.25 brushed and polished ceramic casebody. Engraved on the ceramic caseback just above the sapphire crystal, are the words “Dark Side of the Moon” – an appropriate tribute to this Speedmaster’s heritage and captivating design. This timepiece is presented on a coated nylon fabric strap and is powered by the OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 9300.

Constellation Petite Seconde
The Constellation Petite Seconde is the world’s first Master Chronometer made specifically for women. Along with the famous Constellation claws, the new Petite Seconde features white-pearled mother-of-pearl dials, with 10 diamond hour markers in 18K gold holders. The charming new twist on this iconic timepiece is the ‘small seconds’ feature placed at 9 o’clock, with four diamond markers. To offer balance, OMEGA has moved the date window to 6 o’clock. Beautiful on the outside and a revolution within, the ‘small seconds’ movement features a unique OMEGA innovation: a wheel with flexible teeth that allows the seconds hand to glide through its rotation without quavering. The non-magnetic wheel was manufactured using the LIGA process, which is essentially building components from scratch, one microscopic section at a time. The timepiece’s exceptional new Master Chronometer movements can be seen through the sapphire crystal caseback.

The De Ville Ladymatic Co-Axial 34 mm
When the Ladymatic first appeared in 1955, it became a defining timepiece in women’s fashion. Six decades on, it still retains every ounce of captivating style and grace. In this model, the stainless steel case is enhanced by a brushed metallic bracelet with waved edges, crafted from 18K Sedna™ gold and stainless steel. Sedna™ gold also features on the polished alpha-shaped hands, as well as 11 indexes, which are set with diamonds. Radiating around the white pearled, mother-of-pearl dial, the bezel is also paved with snow-set diamonds, and an extra “Brilliant OMEGA cut” diamond has been placed within the polished crown. On the De Ville Ladymatic Co-Axial 34 mm, days are tracked by a date window at 3 o’clock, while the inner body includes the OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 8520.
