The sun shines every day, moods and dress change, but “Parisian Chic” remains! On the occasion of a morning visit to one of the numerous Omega Parisian boutiques (12, rue de Sèvres) I borrowed our friend Frédéric’s wrist (and outfit) to present three of the brand’s innovations with a common denominator: a gold case.
Whether yellow, pink or red, this precious metal certainly has more and more attractionfor me.Why is that?Probably because I am well into my thirties…
Whatever, here is something that I hope will be a treat to see and make you want to go soon to a lovely watch boutique to try several timepieces and, why not, tell us what really grabs you! Facebook, Instagram, Twitter are ready!
Quite a few people have been talking about the famous Omega Globemaster after its presentation at Baselworld this year. Here it is in the Sedna 18K Pink Gold version with silver dial.
Equipped with a Co-Axial 8900 calibre, each watch of this Omega Globemaster collection is certified after a series of independent tests developed with the Swiss Federal Office of Metrology (METAS).
A medallion of the same metal as the case middle has been inserted in the sapphire crystal before it is attached to the back with 4 screws.It is stamped with a sky and 8 symbolic stars overlooking an observatory.
OMEGA Pink Gold Olympique Collection
Without a doubt the most elegant of the sports watches dedicated to the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, this model is available in yellow, white or pink gold.With an Omega Calibre 3203 movement and manual winding, this chronograph with two counters and oval push-buttons is a marvel to wear with its brown leather strap.
A re-release of a model in the Omega museum, the back is engraved with the inscription “Official Timekeeper of the Olympic Games”, as well as the item’s number.

OMEGA Moonwatch “First OMEGA in Space”
Without a doubt, the Omega Speedmaster is one of the Company’s most emblematic models.The Moonwatch “First Omega in Space” is inspired by the model worn by astronaut Wally Shirra in 1962 during the Sigma 7 mission orbiting the Earth.
This numbered edition model has a silvered opaline dial with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, punctuated with a subsidiary seconds counter, a 30-minutes counter and a 12-hours counter, not forgetting the chronograph’s central hand.
The brown bezel in brushed ceramic, with a tachymeter scale, is set in a 39.7mm Sedna Gold case with a brown leather strap.

This chronograph is powered by the mechanical Omega 1861 calibre, the famous manual winding movement worn during lunar missions. The back is stamped with a seahorse in relief, like the 1962 model.
