The festive season is here and it is the time of giving. Special ones get special gifts, so luxury watchmaker OMEGA has dedicated specific models it found fit as gift ideas, adding a luxurious spin to the holidays.


Globemaster Annual Calendar Limited Edition 

This 41 mm Limited Edition Globemaster features a polished fluted bezel and sand-blasted 950 platinum “Pie Pan” dial, inspired by the first 1952 Constellation.

Its dial showcases the Annual Calendar, highlighting months of the year; an 18K white gold Constellation star and OMEGA logo, and 18K white hold hands and indexes filled with green enamel.

Upon a closer look, one can see the crosshair printed at the centre of the dial, which is reminiscent of OMEGA’s long-standing tradition of chronometer models.

Its caseback includes an 18K white gold Central Observatory medallion that is also filled with green enamel.

This watch is presented on a green leather strap and is driven by OMEGA’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer Annual Calendar Calibre 8923, featuring revolutionary anti-magnetic technology.


The Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon

This sporty timepieces pays tribute to the pioneering Apollo 8 astronauts. The model features a black zirconium oxide ceramic dial with striking 18K white gold “Moonwatch”-style hands and two ceramic subdials at 3 and 9 o’clock.

A matte chromium nitride tachymeter scale stands out on the polished ceramic bezel and case. The words “Dark Side of the Moon” are engraved on the ceramic caseback just above the sapphire crystal, in a tribute to this seedmaster’s heritage and captivating design.

The timepiece is presented on a coated nylon fabric strap and is powered by OMEGA’s Co-Axial calibre 9300


Constellation Petite Seconde

This is the first Master Chonometer made for women. Alone with the Constellation claws, it features white-pearled mother-of-pearl dials, with 10 diamond hour markers in 18K gold holders.

The Small Seconds feature at 9 o’clock presents a new twist to the iconic timepiece, with four diamond markers. Within this feature, a non-magnetic wheel with flexible teeth has been built from scratch, allowing the seconds hand to glide through its rotation without quavering.

With this, the date window has been moved to 6 o’clock. Moreover, the new Master Chronometer movements can be seen through the sapphire crystal caseback.


The De Ville Ladymatic Co-Axial 34 mm

The Ladymatic first appeared in 1955 and became a defining timepiece in women’s fashion. Six decades later, it still maintains its style and grace.

In this model, the stainless steel case is enhanced by a brushed metallic bracelet with waved edges, crafted from 18K Sedna™ gold and stainless steel. Sedna™ gold also features on the polished alpha-shaped hands, as well as 11 indexes, which are set with diamonds.

It radiates around a white pearled, mother of pearl dial, and the bezel is also paved with snow-set diamonds, in addition to an extra “Brilliant OMEGA cut” diamond found within the polished crown.

On the De Ville Ladymatic Co-Axial 34 mm, days are tracked by a date window at 3 o’clock, while the inner body includes the OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 8520.


The Ladymatic Pendant

Timeless, sensual and easy to wear fine jewellery, the Ladymatic Pendant in 18K red gold and diamonds is at once feminine and graceful. With its seductive wave patterns, the piece elegantly reinterprets the Ladymatic watch case, creating a strong link with the iconic watch that shares its name.

OMEGA FESTIVE campaign runs from December 14 to 31, 2016.
