45 years ago, man first walked on the moon.  And an Omega was there.  And Omega wants you to know that.  That year, they released the Speedmaster Mark II, featuring the same movement that was in the watch worn by the astronauts.  And now it is time for an update and reissue.  The new Speedmaster Mark II retains the overall look of the original, but also provides nice modern updates.

Historical Horology: Non-mechanical Speedmasters from Omega

Posted on 16 March 2014 by Patrick Kansa

When it comes to Omega, many folks instantly think of one model – the Speedmaster. This is a fair leap to make, given how iconic the watch has become. Variations have come and gone, but the one you’re likely picturing in your mind right now is a mechanical chronograph with a black dial. A lot of that is fueled from what we see today, as well as the vintage models that are currently popular. In the 1970′s, however, Omega was by no means immune to the quartz crisis. Continue Reading

Historical Horology: Taking A Look At Omega

Posted on 24 November 2013 by Patrick Kansa

Omega isn’t the oldest watch brand in existence today – but it is one of the older brands that we have with us today. When I write about Omega, I’m often looking to what they’re doing today (which is interesting). Or, if I’m looking to their past, it’s in conjunction with an older model a current one is referencing. Today, I thought it would be worthwhile to take a quick look at the history of the brand. Continue Reading

Omega Releases The Speedmaster ’57 Co-Axial

Posted on 19 July 2013 by Patrick Kansa

As of late, what Omega is creating has really been grabbing more of my attention. After the ETNZ launch last month (here), where I saw more than one Speedmaster, I was intrigued, and started to look more closely at what the watch was, and I now understand and appreciate the appeal of the watch. Those who have been reading my articles for awhile now also know that I’ve been building a preference to white dials. But the Speedmaster only has a black dial, I hear you say. That was true, until this latest release. Continue Reading

As you may be aware, the America’s Cup will be kicking off in a few days on the 4th, with racing set to commence on July 7th.  Why should that matter here on a watch site?  It’s because Omega is sponsoring Emirates Team New Zealand in the series – and introduced a new limited-edition Seamaster to commemorate the partnership.

Watch Sale: I’m Selling My Speedmaster Reduced Automatic

Posted on 13 May 2013 by John Biggs

photoI don’t like Ebay so I’m posting this here first: I’d like to sell my Speedmaster Reduced Automatic with box and papers for $2,000. It’s a little higher than I’ve seen it but it’s in excellent condition with only a little desk rash on the clasp. It comes from my private collection and I’ve worn it regularly for a few years but at this point I feel I need to move on. I release it into the wild with great sadness. If you’d like to make an offer, email me at john@biggs.cc. If I don’t hear anything I’ll stick it onto the forums and then, lastly, the cesspool of crime and villainy that is Ebay.
