Omega – what you need to know
Published on 18 August 2021
There’s a reason Omega is a household name in the world of watches. The brand’s iconic collections like the Speedmaster, Seamaster and Constellation have rich histories and instantly recognisable designs. While Omega’s past is full of iconic moments, the future is just as bright. Omega leads the way in accuracy and reliability, thanks to the brand’s Co-Axial technology and the Master Chronometre certification. To achieve this standard, a watch must pass a series of independently verified tests that raise the standards of accurate timekeeping. Covering off superior precision, protection from magnetic fields, moisture and shock, as well as improved durability, a Master Chronometre certified Omega is a watch you can rely on. One of the best things about it is that you can see the precise results of your exact watch simply by entering your certificate number online. With this sort of focus on precision and reliability, you can see why Omega is entrusted with timekeeping at the Olympic Games.

Seamaster, Omega Seamaster
Without doubt, one of Omega’s most famous wearers is none other than James Bond. Since 1995’s GoldenEye, 007 has been wearing an Omega. And while he’s worn a few models over the years, they’re all from the Seamaster collection. This purpose-built dive watch makes perfect sense, as its a hard-wearing, rugged watch that is well-suited to saving the world.
You don’t have to be a super spy to pull off the look though, as Seamasters like the iconic Diver 300M, offer the perfect combination of substance and style, with impressive water resistance, a helium escape valve and virtually scratch-proof ceramic bezels. And with options from stealthy ceramic to heavyweight Sedna gold there’s a Seamaster out there for every wrist.
To the Moon and Back
In 1969 Omega made history as the first watch worn on the moon. The watch was a Speedmaster Professional, and the classic Moonwatch is still an important (and virtually unchanged) part of Omega’s collection today. The Speedmaster family has grown over the years, and one attractive addition takes the moon connection to the next level. The Speedmaster Moonphase is an automatic Master Chronometre Chronograph that adds an accurate representation of the moon onto your wrist. The tiny, photorealistic moon shown at six o’clock accurately charts the 29.5-day lunar cycle — perfect for the space explorer in all of us.
Constellation Shines Bright
Omega’s Constellation plays a starring role on the wrist thanks to its dressy looks and bold design. The collection was first introduced in 1952 and has been a firm favourite ever since. The current collection is the fifth design evolution. It is characterised by strong lines, a one-of-a-kind bracelet and that a bezel that — when it’s not glittering with diamonds — is engraved with Roman numerals. Made for women and men in a wide range of sizes and styles, the Constellation is the final word in everyday elegance.
