We visited the Omega manufacture in our hometown of Biel/Bienne to discover the novelties of 2022. While stunning new watches were released within all collections, 5 particular timepieces caught our attention. Let us show you which ones!
Speedmaster Professional Moonshine™ Gold
The Speedy is now available in 18K Moonshine™ Gold! Inspired by the 4th generation Speedmaster, this 42 mm timepiece comes with a case and bracelet in a unique alloy. The dial is available in different variations. We love the sun-brushed green PVD “step” dial with “Moonwatch” style hands. In this version, iconic ceramic bezel ring is green as well.
Another incredibly beautiful version features a sun-brushed 18K Moonshine™ Gold “step” dial with blackened subdials and indexes. The ceramic bezel ring comes in a nice contrasting black as well. The integrated black rubber strap adds an intriguing sporty component to an otherwise very elegant timepiece.
Both watches come with the famous “dot over 90” and are powered by Omega’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 3861 with special luxury finish. Which model do you prefer?
Are you a fan of the legendary 1957 original? Then you might get excited about this new 40.50 mm model! It features a stainless steel case and a black dial with recessed hour markers showing vintage Super-LumiNova from beneath. The “Broad Arrow” hands are rhodium-plated, adding to the overall vintage look. A date window has been added at 6 o’clock which makes this watch very suitable for everyday use. Just like the original, the Speedmaster ’57 is a manual-winding timepiece, being powered by the Omega Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 9906.
Seamaster Planet Ocean 6000M
As part of the Five Deeps Expedition in 2019, the Ultra Deep made history when it reached the deepest place on Earth. Following that World Record dive, the game-changing watch has now been adapted for a unique collection available to the public. Tested in real ocean conditions during its development, the design is water-resistant to 6,000 metres (20,000 ft.) and meets the ISO 6425:2018 standard for saturation divers’ watches.
The resulting 45.5 mm model in sand-blasted Grade 5 Titanium features a brushed black ceramic bezel ring with its diving scale in Liquidmetal™. Distinctive “Manta Lugs” can be found at each end of the case, holding on to a striped black and cyan polyamide NATO strap. Inside, the watch is driven by the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8912.
Seamaster Diver 300M
Since 1993, the Seamaster Professional Diver 300M has enjoyed a legendary following. Today’s modern collection has embraced that famous ocean heritage and updated it with OMEGA’s best innovation and design.
This new 42 mm model is crafted from stainless steel and includes a green ceramic bezel with a white enamel diving scale. The dial is also polished green ceramic and features laser-engraved waves and a date window at 6 o’clock. The watch is presented on a matching green rubber strap and is driven by the OMEGA Master Chronometer Calibre 8800, which is visible on the case back.
