Three Omega Watches To Buy In 2021

Omega Seamaster 300 Bronze Gold

And they are all Master Chronometer certified.

Omega has unveiled it 2021 line-up and watch lovers are treated to updates across the Seamaster, Constellation and De Ville Trésor collections. While all of the new timepieces offer something special to bolster and cement the iconic stature of Omega’s core product lines, while bearing the Master Chronometer certification, here are three that got our hearts beating the hardest.

Seamaster 300 Bronze Gold

Omega Seamaster 300 Bronze Gold

The indelible line of dive watches that was launched in 1957 returns this year sporting a pronounced throwback vibe, slimmer silhouettes and, of course, Master Chronometer upgrades. The standout piece is the Seamaster 300 Bronze Gold, which features Omega’s new proprietary, patent-pending alloy. The watch not only plays up its nautical allusions well (bronze was traditionally a vital material for nautical exploration, used in items such as boat propellers and diving helmets), it is also darn beautiful, emanating a soft gilded sheen. Ostensibly, unlike regular bronze, Omega’s Bronze Gold is highly corrosion resistant and promises to age well, retaining a gorgeous patina over a long time.

Seamaster Diver 300M Black Black

A watch with a moniker that clearly doesn’t leave anything to the imagination. On first impression, the timepiece has echoes of the Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Black Black from 2018. In truth, apart from a stylish, monochromatic appear, the Seamaster Diver 300M Black Black offers a different, more decorative and teched-up take on the Black Black theme. Clad in black ceramic, the 43.5mm watch’s cool mystique is thoughtfully accentuated by impressive legibility, thanks to Omega’s designers’ smart combination of polished, matte and textured surfaces on the case and dial. The work on the dial is especially impressive, with every detail laser-ablated in positive relief to endow the markers, wave patterns and logo three-dimensionality and contrast.

Constellation Small Seconds

The Constellation collection, recognised by its signature claws on the bezel and half-moon facets, welcomes a range of Small Seconds models in 34mm this year, the inclusion of the said display instantly endowing the watches with a distinctive look. The dials feature intersecting minutes track and seconds sub-dial perimeters that give an appearance of quirkiness with asymmetry and illusion of off-centered time display. The references on offer run the gamut from ultra-feminine models in white mother-of-pearl dial to glitzy variant in Sedna gold with burgundy dial set with incremental diamond hour markers, along more stones on the minute track, sub-dial and bezel. No prizes for guessing which stole our hearts.

Ex Editor-In Chief

Alvin promises not to be a douche when talking about watches. He may have scoured the Basel and Geneva watch fairs for the past 15 years, and played an instrumental role to the growth of Singapore's pioneering horological and men's lifestyle publications, but the intrepid scribe seeks to learn something new with each story he writes.
