The Globemaster OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer

31 March 2016

By Scott Campbell

Created in the true spirit of OMEGA, the Globemaster houses the brand's most advanced mechanical movement and features a design inspired by early Constellation models that represent horological expertise and OMEGA's legacy of precision and outstanding performance.

Revolutionary Process Sets New Industry Standard
In December of 2014, OMEGA held a press conference together with the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS) to announce a new watch certification process. The Globemaster is the first watch to be tested and approved according to this process, making it the World's 1st Master Chronometer.

Besides measuring the performance of the watch in daily wearing conditions, the process also ensures that the watch and its movement function properly when exposed to magnetic fields of 15,000 gauss.

That Unmistakable Iconic Dial Design
The 39mm timepiece available across 11 models features the iconic pie-pan dial made famous by the Constellation in 1952.

Silvery opaline dials are found on the 18K Sedna™ gold, 18K yellow gold, stainless steel and stainless steel and 18K yellow gold versions. A sun-brushed blue dial graces the full stainless steel model, as well as the version in stainless steel and 18K Sedna™ gold. Both are available with a matching metallic bracelet or a blue leather strap.

A Unique Bezel With Character
Surrounding the dial is a fluted bezel whose top ridges are smoothed, giving the Globemaster a unique look that ensures it will remain immediately identifiable for generations to come.

The fluted bezel on the stainless steel models are made of tungsten carbide, a hard metal.

A Hint of History
Protecting the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer calibre 8900/8901 powering the timepiece is a domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with an outstanding decorative feature.

A medallion made of the same material as the casebody has been set into the glass before the glass is fastened to the caseback with four screws. The medallion is stamped with an image of an observatory surrounded by a polished sky marked with eight symbolic stars.
