WatchProSite Moderator Patrick_y, was a fan of magic and illusion shows since a young age. Not only because he enjoyed watching magic shows, but he enjoyed the challenge of figuring out how a trick was done. In this article, our moderator peels back the curtain and describes the Master Plan behind today's "Drop" culture... Warning, this is a long article that is best consumed in its entirety in one sitting...Story

Omega Seamaster 1948 platinum: The good bad idea?

Avatar
amanico
Small Seconds or Central Seconds, there are two flavors for the Seamaster 1948. Which is exactly the same choice for the steel versions. As you can or will see, the main difference is, of course, the weight of platinum case and the color of the indices and hands, in yellow gold for the Small Seconds, in rose gold for the Central Seconds. The Small Seconds: The Central Seconds...Story

Omega Seamaster 300 Platinum: Too much or not too much?

Avatar
amanico
In less than 2 years, in 2017 and 2018, we had and still have three different ( or six if we include the bracelet versions ) Seamaster in platinum. The Platinum Enamel Blue dial, first, on strap, or for 20, 000 more euros, on platinum bracelet: This is the only limited edition ( 757 ( ! ) on strap, 357 ( !!! ) on its platinum bracelet ) Then, we had, at the end of 2018, early 2019, the malachite and the lapis versions. On strap, they are respectively 5 and 10, 000 euros more expensive than the blue enamel ... ...Story

Mission 321 - by Cpt Scarlet

The Omega Speedmaster is a design classic and should be viewed in the same way as the Leica Camera, the Eames Chair and the Corvette Stingray. All of these iconic designs are still in production today, being made in modern factories and subtly updated to remain as relevant today as the day they were launched. Let’s take a trip back to the era where it all started and give the Speedmaster some context. Things were very different when in 1958 The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) was established .....Story

Omega Speedmaster " RAID " Limited Edition.

Avatar
amanico
Exactly one year ago, some people of the RAID ( the french equivalent of the SWAT ), a few friends and Antoine De Macedo ( one of the most famous watch shop in Paris ) had a trip in Bienne to meet the Omega Team for a project around a special Speedmaster for the french Police. The idea was to work from a normal / regular Speedmaster and to personalize it. 9 months after, the first watches landed. Most of the watches will be delivered to the RAID, and only a few will be available for sale...Story

Ultraman - This or that?


andrewluff
Its amazing to think there are 50 years between the 2 of these Ultramen and yet side by side they seem like brothers (rather than father and son). I think they really did a great job with the Speedie Tuesday Ultraman, but in my mind the original holds the edge... even with all its battle scars from wearing over the years. Cheers Andrew ...Story

The New Omega De Ville Trésor Co-Axial Master Chronometer 40mm

Avatar
blomman Mr Blue
Some time ago Nicolas posted the news about the New 125 th Anniversary Edition of the Omega De Ville Trésor Co-Axial Master Chronometer 40mm. What made me look closer is of course the red dial, which looks stunning and the fact that it has a manual wind chronometer movement with central seconds and no date. A combination we not often see nowadays. The size is in the middle of my sweet spot, 40 mm in diameter...Story

A visit to the Omega Manufactures. Part II: Bienne.

Avatar
amanico
After the technical aspects discussed in Part I with the visit of the Manufacture in Saint Imier, we went to Bienne. There, we could see how the watches are totally assembled, controlled and packaged, but don't expect pictures, as photos are not allowed. A lot of processes are made by robots, and we saw them working, but humans are still present, at the key stages. But I had a secret hope, when coming to Bienne.....Story

amanico
This trip is Switzerland had one goal: Visiting the Omega Manufactures, which was a first for me! That was a good opportunity to better know this brand, and to discover how it works, the movement, the new collections, its philosophy and, of course, its glorious past. I can confess that I was very surprised. First of all, I didn't know that there were several manufactures, one in Saint Imier, the very same place where you can find another manufacture dear to my heart, Longines, and one in Bienne. I always .....Story

Box Play 1940’s: Omega Suverän reference 2400-7

Avatar
blomman Mr Blue
Another example of 1940’s Omega with not overly large box. I never saw a special box for the Suverän as I did for the Officer, but both models were specially made for the Swedish market. Both boxes are of the same style, light beige/yellow, brown text, made of carboard paper with brown velvet interior. As shown in my previous post, the Officer had a special Officer box: On the Suverän box it says “PRECISION WATCH” which was used for several different models during that time...Story
