Over the years, Omega has built an indisputable reputation as one of the leading watch brands in the world. The brand has released numerous popular watches that combine innovation and style for exceptional timepieces. The Omega Globemaster Annual Calendar is an example of astonishing watches from the Swiss brand. Upon its release in 2015, the watch was received with positive reviews globally, a breakthrough of the season for the popular brand. The watch offered everything in terms of looks, functionality and accuracy, making it one of the best watches in the market.
Despite having a lot of text on its pan pie dial, the designers of the Omega Globemaster Annual Calendar took measures to ensure that the text doesn’t affect readability. Despite having the abbreviations for the calendar, the months are carefully placed near the edge of the dial to avoid clashing with the hour and minute markers. The light-colored dial and the dark colored text of the months give perfect contrast, making it easy to tell the date without strain. The radial flip of the months is another unique feature worth taking note of. The hands of the watch are majestic with an element of illumination for easy reading under various light conditions. The dial also has a date window for showing the actual day. It is positioned right above the 6 o’clock marker. The figure is large and easy to spot.
To make the watch stand out, the Omega Globemaster Annual Calendar is relatively large. It has a diameter of 41mm that gives it a strong presence on the wrist of the wearer. Its height and fluted bezel are additional features that enhance the beauty of the watch. A majority of the case is made of brushed stainless steel.
The Omega Globemaster Annual Calendar displays the month using a central hand. What makes the watch even more unique is the annual calendar. It therefore needs adjusting only once in a year (end of February). Driven by the modern OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8922, the watch boasts of impeccable precision. The chronometer provides power reserves of 60 hours, has a co-axial escapement, antimagnetic characteristics as well as a silicone balance. Every feature of the watch has been incorporated with the purpose of enhancing beauty and unparalleled functionality.
The beauty of a watch depends quite considerably on the strap. This is a fact that Omega definitely understands and appreciates. The brand has invested in creating a strong, durable and comfortable strap for its Omega Globemaster Annual Calendar. The straps of the watch are made of fine quality alligator straps. The straps match perfectly with the astonishing case. Despite being soft and comfortable, the straps are rather durable. They are sure to last for long before creases and lines start to show.
The famous Omega Globemaster Annual Calendar looks a lot better physically than it does in pictures. The dial is professionally designed to incorporate every element without looking too busy. It is an exceptional watch worth adding to your watch collection.
