Omega has been on a roll over the last few years as the storied Swiss watch maker continues to produce both crowd-pleasing new Omega limited edition replica watches designs and also “collector bait” timepieces which find happy homes on the wrists of hardcore watch enthusiasts. What is Omega’s secret? That is a tough question to answer as I’m still investigating the story, but it seems to be a combination of putting a lot of resources simultaneously into marketing as well as product development (most brands are good at only one or the other). A close inspection of a watch like the just-announced 2016 Omega Globemaster Annual Calendar reveals a few of Omega’s top fluencies.
It was only about a year ago that we introduced the standard Omega Globemaster collection replica watches here. The 39mm-wide watch debuted in a range of materials including, steel, 18k yellow gold, 18k Sedna (rose) gold, and platinum along with the cryptic slogan “The World’s First Master Chronometer.”
What is a “Master Chronometer?” That is a good question. Of course, the Globemaster is the first of its kind, as it is a name that Omega just came up with to refer to their most advanced movements which have been certified using their most advanced techniques. “Master Chronometer” watches are those which have been METAS certified under a new set of standards developed by an arm of the Swiss government and Omega. The certification is easily one of the most rigorous for Swiss watch movements, as it exceeds COSC Chronometer standards in addition to testing for intense anti-magnetic properties, as well as testing the movements cased up inside of the watches – versus only outside prior to being “cased.”
By 2017, Omega cheap fake watches UK should have about a dozen or so of its in-house made movements being certified in its expanding METAS testing department which exists in-house at the Omega facility in Bienne, Switzerland. The Globemaster with its caliber 8900 movement was the first to be METAS certified, and that continues with the Omega Globemaster Annual Calendar and its in-house-made caliber 8922 automatic Co-Axial movement.
