Even though a lot of things have been put on hold in 2020, there are some brands that are always ready to tackle more challenges. With that in mind, Omega has released a few new watches in 2020 that will intrigue anyone interested in precious timepieces, no matter if you’re a collector of precious watches or getting ready for an important event. With a brand new watch on your wrist, you’ll feel as the red carpet has been rolled down under you.
Join us on a ride through the new eye-catching portfolio of exquisite watches and you might just find a piece that meets your needs. We’ll present our top three picks from this year’s releases, focusing on the ones with a fascinating background.
Omega has decided to recreate their legendary Omega 321 calibre watches that have been worn by the Apollo 11 crew 51 years ago. For the July anniversary of the moon landing, the watch giant came out with the Omega Moonwatch — the second generation of the 321 calibres. The original watch is known as the Speedmaster Moonwatch 321 Stainless Steel, and it holds a special place in the prestigious family of Omega watches.
The timepiece is not a limited edition, meaning that you can get the true connection to space history it offers anytime. The Apollo 11 mission holds a special place in the hearts of many space enthusiasts, meaning that the second generation of the Moonwatch is a cherished timepiece around the world.
Seamaster Diver 300m
Another significant timepiece in Omega’s collection is the Seamaster Diver 300m. The new edition of the Seamaster Diver 300m has been advertised along with the latest James Bond film that is set to be released in November 2020. Although we got a sneak peek of the watch when it was showcased during the 50th anniversary of On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, we’re surely looking forward to seeing it on Daniel Craig’s wrist.
Omega watches have been a part of the James Bond franchise since 1995, especially the Seamaster collection, as Bond is portrayed as a Royal Navy commander. Until the film hits the theatres, you can enjoy both the gold and the platinum edition of the Seamaster Diver 300m.
Seamaster Planet Ocean America’s Cup
We wouldn’t want to leave out an outstanding new timepiece available around the world — Seamaster Planet Ocean 36th America’s Cup Limited Edition. The latest edition of the timepiece first raced in 1851 is ready to continue the tradition as a source of rivalry and fantastic sailing duels. In March 2020, the 36th edition of the watch was presented in Auckland’s Waitemata Harbour.
The newest edition of the Seamaster Planet Ocean America’s Cup is manufactured from 2,021 pieces of the finest materials and quality. The polished white ceramic dial is positioned above an Omega Master Chronometer 8900 movement. The red, blue, and white design perfectly embodies the patriotic spirit, as you can see red and white liquid ceramic inserts perfected for the regatta countdown. The brand’s capabilities are impeccably illustrated in the engineering of this timepiece.
