Omega is one of the greatest names in watchmaking, famous for walking on the moon, keeping time at the Olympics and for gracing the wrist of 007. They’ve been making some of the most robust, accurate and elegant timepieces on the market since 1848. Find out more about the many sides of Omega at Time+Tide.

VIDEO: Unboxing the Omega box set most watch lovers would die for

Omega’s box set celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Railmaster, Seamaster and Speedmaster has been one of the talking points of Baselworld 2017, and not just because of the watches. The box itself is a work of craftsmanship in itself. It isn’t just like an Omega box from the 50s, it has been made to be exactly the same, with corduroy and gold foil lettering and all. We have the pricing, the live images and the (included) travel pouch all in this two-minute video.

VIDEO: Omega 1957 Trilogy box set, containing new Speedmaster, Railmaster and Seamaster models

This year marks the 60th anniversary of three of Omega’s most important models: the Speedmaster, Seamaster and Railmaster. The brand is celebrating by releasing a frankly epic trio of limited edition reissues, available individually, or in this ‘1957 Trilogy’ box set. No word yet on pricing or availability. While we don’t have much in the way of technical detail at yet, first impressions are very positive. The only noticable difference between these new versions and the original models seems to be the coloured luminous material. To see just how good, and faithful, they are, have a look at the new versions compared to pieces from the Omega Museum which we photographed at our ‘Night of Omega Firsts’ event in 2014.

BREAKING: Video of Omega’s key releases, including an incredible Speedmaster, Railmaster, Seamaster box set

When Omega CEO Raynald Aeschlimann recently visited Australia he brought more than just one of the world’s most glamorous women with him. He also gave us an exclusive preview of the Omega 2017 releases. The new boss needed only one take to deliver the news straight down the barrel of the camera, albeit in a hushed voice while Cindy was being interviewed upstairs. A serious professional. While we’ll leave the detail to Raynald, let’s just say that there are new Aqua Terra models, a bold new Planet Ocean ‘Big Blue’, a Speedmaster ‘Apollo XVII’ limited edition, and last but definitely not least, there are incredible new versions of the Speedmaster, Railmaster and Seamaster, offered separately or as a box set.

BASEL BUILDUP: 6 days to go. This year is the Omega Speedmaster’s 60th anniversary, so watch this video about the 1957 original

BASEL BUILDUP: The first Omega Speedmaster was released in 1957, so the iconic model is celebrating its 60th this year. We’re pretty confident this means we’ll be seeing an anniversary edition at Baselworld in a few days, which led us to speculate (fairly intensely) about what it might look like. As with all things involving ‘vintage’ and ‘Speedmaster’, our journey led back to Petros Protopapas, Brand Heritage Manager of Omega, who told us some great stories about the model at an event we held back in 2014, called ‘The Night of Omega Firsts’. We decided to take a close look at what he said about the 1957 Speedmaster, to piece together possible clues about what a reissue might look like.

VIDEO: Want Omega’s CEO to give you a private tour of their biggest boutique, featuring Cindy Crawford? Of course you do

Omega’s Sydney flagship is their biggest boutique in the world, and it’s in a prominent position, at 20 Martin Place, right in the heart of town. When Chief Executive Raynald Aeschlimann travelled to Australia to officially open it earlier this month, he brought a friend of the brand who, a decade earlier, also opened the Castlereagh Street boutique, just around the corner. Yes, we’re talking about the incredible Cindy Crawford. Raynald extended Time+Tide a private invitation to come and explore the space with Cindy, where we learned that history is more alive than ever for Omega, thanks to the unveiling of the ‘Her Time’ exhibition, with a little help from Brand Heritage Manager, Petros Protopapas.
