Omega’s Globemaster is full of the most advanced technological sorcery.
Driven by the Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8900, the Globemaster has automatic winding in both directions, a time zone function and a power reserve of 60 hours.
Recently updated, it has also passed a rigorous eight-step testing process and become the world’s first Master Chronometer. Certified by METAS, the Globemaster has overcome the tests which replicate real-life wearing conditions and demonstrate resistance to water and magnetic fields.
Stephen Urquhart, former president of Omega, explains: ‘The new Master Chronometer ensures that each watch far exceeds the standards that have long been our industry’s norms.’
Omega’s reputation for sophisticated movements is only enhanced with the new Globemaster, which was recently spotted on Eddie Redmayne’s wrist at the premiere of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the latest film in the Harry Potter franchise – so it’s a timepiece fit for a wizard.
Its 18K yellow gold case makes it a functional dress watch. But with a fluted bezel and its opaline, silvery ‘Pie Pan’ dial, which was inspired by the first 1952 Constellation model, it looks as good with casual wear as it does on the red carpet.
