Globemaster Annual Calendar
March 24, 2017
In 2015, the Globemaster was one of OMEGA’s star timepieces on show in Basel. This year, the much talked about Master Chronometer returns with an update that is sure to impress again. The OMEGA Globemaster “Annual Calendar” begins its evolution with a new case diameter that has been increased from 39mm to 41mm. This new size allows for greater visibility of the “Pie Pan” dial that is already a renowned feature of the Globemaster series. The dial is also presented in a brand new lustrous shade of grey and reintroduces a classic cross design that is reminiscent of vintage Constellation models. The most prominent element of this update is the new movement that drives the Annual Calendar feature. It has been designed with an instantaneous jump, while on the dial, each month has been elegantly positioned between the blued indexes. The months are pointed to by a varnished blue hand. The polished hour and minute hands are blued and facetted. They are coated with Super-Luminova, along with the indexes. In changing light, the overall effect of the dial is truly captivating. The other touches of blue include the polished central seconds hand, OMEGA logo, Constellation star and writing on the dial. Completing this colour theme, there is a blue leather equipped with a stainless steel foldover clasp. The case itself has been crafted from stainless steel and, similar to last year’s successful launch, the polished fluted bezel has been made with scratchproof tungsten carbide. What made last year’s OMEGA Globemaster truly unique was its position as the World’s First Master Chronometer. Again, the innovative edge of this series continues. This time, the timepiece has been fitted with the new OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8922, while the Master Chronometer certification card that accompanies the timepiece proves that the watch has passed the eight intensive tests established by METAS.
