Omega Globemaster Master Chronometer Annual Calendar

In 2015, Omega launched one of its most sensational watch lines: Globemaster, the World’s first Master Chronometer.  This year, Omega welcomes an elegant annual calendar model to join this collection.

The inspiration for the Globemaster Annual Calendar movement comes from the 12 facets of the watch’s Pie Pan dial. A central varnished blue hand indicates the current month through an instantaneous jump.
Crafted from stainless steel, the case measures 41mm and features a polished fluted bezel made with scratchproof tungsten carbide. The polished hour and minute hands are blued and facetted, and they are coated with Super-Luminova, along with the blued 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 strap equipped with a stainless steel foldover clasp.
The Globemaster Master Chronometer Annual Calendar 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 the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS).
