OMEGA revealed the new 2022 collection of their watches on the 10th of August at the OMEGA boutique in Mall of Oman to the rapturous attention of watch lovers who keenly went through the stunning new array of watches.
The new collection included the Seamaster Ultra Deep with the 2022 version of it seeing the release of seven new models of OMEGA’s Ultra Deep Collection. Watch connoisseurs enjoyed going through the six models from the Ultra Deep collection which was been built in brand-new O-MEGASTEEL, thus once again showcasing to the watch lovers the brand’s leadership in the production of advanced materials.
The Seamaster Professional Diver 300M watch was also seen back in the 2022 collection but this time it was bolder than ever with a wave-pattern dial in a striking shade of green. The 42 mm watch in stainless steel sported a uni-directional rotating bezel with a polished green ceramic ring with Grand-Feu white enamel diving scale.
Driving the beautiful new Seamaster Diver 300M with green polished ceramic dial was OMEGA’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8800 with a special luxury finish.
On the other hand, the Seamaster Aqua Terra models from the 2022 collection were all about colour, with a range of new dial shades that tracked a smooth transition from Aqua to Terra. And for those who wanted more colour options, they could choose larger sized models in 38 mm with dials in Atlantic Blue, Bay Green, Sandstone, Saffron and Terracotta or 34 mm editions with dials in Sea Blue, Lagoon Green, Sandstone, Shell Pink and Lavender.
Launched first in 1952 and then beautifully re-designed in 1982, the Constellation collection continued to shine even brighter in the collection showcased for 2022.
Among the new models for 2022 that were displayed was the Constellation 41mm star performers with all the new dials clasped by the famous Constellation claws.
Materials on offer were stainless steel, stainless steel and 18K yellow gold, and stainless steel and 18K Sedna™ Gold. Ceramic bezels in polished blue, black or brown; displayed Roman numerals filled with white enamel or OMEGA Ceragold™, depending on the model.
OMEGA had so included the Constellation Aventurine collection and these extraordinary 29 mm models had dials made from natural Aventurine stone. There were twelve new editions, in stainless steel and 18K Sedna™ Gold – or full Sedna™ Gold for purists – all with natural Aventurine stone dials in either green, red or blue. Lady watch lovers could choose bezels paved with diamonds or engraved with Roman numerals.
Replacing the famous mono-rang bracelet were leather straps in colours to match the dial. The driving force behind the natural dials has always been OMEGA’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8700 or 8701 for the all-gold models. The trio featured have diamond set bezels, skeletonised hour and minute hands and dial-matching leather straps in shimmering blue, red with glittered scale lines or green. Providing the power was OMEGA’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer calibre 8701, visible through the domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.
OMEGA’s beautiful new Constellation 28mm additions to the Constellation family revealed its softer side and feature pastel dials in a choice of four colours: Blush Rose, Patchouli Blossom, Celestial Blue and Green Matcha. The subtle new hues also made an appearance on the bezel.
To add an extra pop of pastel to the display, OMEGA matched the engraved Roman numerals to the colours of the dial. All four watches were seen with a case and bracelet in stainless steel and feature hands, indexes and applied elements in 18K white gold. Providing the power was OMEGA’s Calibre 4061, a superb quartz movement that offers unwavering precision.
Although originally designed for motor racing, OMEGA’s Speedmaster was destined to fly, becoming the first watch worn on the moon and a must-have for earthbound adventurers.
In 2022, the professional chronograph is on track to gain a new generation of Speedy fans.
OMEGA’s famous Speedmaster ’57, first introduced in 2013, returned in 2022, with a Master Chronometer upgrade and slimmer profile. The new collection consisted of eight new stainless-steel models, all powered by OMEGA’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 9906. The entire collection was presented with stainless steel bracelets or matching-coloured leather straps. The bracelet on the steel version has been inspired by the Apollo 11 tribute launched in 2019 and equipped with OMEGA’s patented comfort release adjustment system.
OMEGA’s legendary space watch took on a lunar glow with the Speedmaster Moonwatch Moonshine™ Gold. Created in 2019, OMEGA’s exclusive Moonshine™ Gold is an 18K yellow gold alloy, inspired by the shining moonlight in a dark blue sky. OMEGA’s 18K Moonshine™ Gold offers a distinctive paler hue than traditional 18K yellow gold and high resistance to the fading of colour and lustre over time.
In 2022, OMEGA has also taken lunar inspiration to the next level with two new models in 18K Moonshine™ Gold. One with 18K Moonshine™ Gold dial, black ceramic bezel ring and blackened subdials and indexes. Another with a PVD green coated dial and a green ceramic bezel ring. To offer aficionados even greater choice, OMEGA is offering two ways to fix their 18K Moonshine™ Gold Moonwatch to the wrist: a matching bracelet or strap. Powering all new models is OMEGA’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 3861.
