Globemaster: Impeccable Harmony Between Design And Function

Globemaster, a beacon of stunning style and performance, was one of Omega’s most important models at the 2015 Basel fair. This model’s most unique quality stemmed from the fact that it was the world’s first master chronometer watch.

The novel series, representing a passionate outlook, continues to push the limits. A timepiece that’s been in the spotlight for a long time, it now returns with another special feature that will continue to draw attention.

A prime example of excellence and impeccable design, the inspiration for the The Globemaster Annual Calendar movement comes from the 12 facets of the watch’s Pie Pan dial. A central varnished blue hand indicates the current month through an instantaneous jump.

The 41 mm stainless steel case has a polished fluted bezel made of scratchproof tungsten carbide. The varnished blue hands and hour markers are also covered with Super-Luminova. In changing light, the radiant blue of the polished hands has a very captivating effect.

The inscription on the second hand, Omega logo, Constellation star and dial are all in blue. The color blue is continued on the powerful crocodile leather strap, which has a stainless steel foldover clasp.

The Globemaster Annual Calendar possesses sapphire crystal on the front and back. The domed sapphire crystal has anti-reflective treatment on both sides.

The new Omega Co-Axial Master Chronometer with its 8922-caliber movement works with 25,200 vibrations per hour and has a power reserve of 55 hours. The Master Chronometer certification included with the watch proves that it successfully passed eight tests performed by the Swiss Federal Office of Metrology (METAS). The watch, with a silicone balance spring, also has a 15000 gauss anti-magnetic feature. Its water resistance level is also 100 meters.

With all these striking features, the Globemaster is the perfect companion for those looking for an undoubtedly impeccable experience among mechanical watches.
