At Baselworld 2015, Omega unveiled the world’s first master chronometer, the Omega Globemaster. Notable for drawing inspiration from the brand’s early Constellation models, the Omega Globemaster shows the true spirit of Omega through the housing of the brand’s most advanced mechanical movement. Each of these watches is thoroughly tested through a series of independent tests, which is a revolutionary process that has been established in the watch industry.
The Omega Globemaster is a 39mm timepiece that features the pie-pan dial that was found on the Constellation in 1952. Surrounding the dial is an easily identifiable fluted bezel whose top ridges are smooth. The see through scratch-resistant sapphire case back protects the Omega Co-Axial Master Chronometer calibre 8900/8901. This movement is the first to be tested and approved following the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS), which makes it the world’s first Master Chronometer. In addition to measuring everyday wearing conditions, METAS ensures that the movement can function properly when exposed to magnetic fields of 15,000 gauss.
Each timepiece comes with an individualized copy of its METAS test results and an ID card that will allow its owner to sign in and view the results.
