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.

IN-DEPTH: The Omega Planet Ocean Vs. the Omega Seamaster 300, is there a winner?

Since 1948, Omega have been perfecting their formula for conquering the sea. What began as a splash-proof dress watch, quickly spiralled into a race for innovation amongst Switzerland's finest as to who could plunge the deepest depths and still tell the time. The Seamaster line is Omega's crown jewel in technical achievement and design, with mesmerising good-looks intrinsically linked to having the utmost legibility under the waves. 2017 saw a revamped edition of the Seamaster 300, Omega's famed 1957 release that has become an all-time classic. Last year saw the Planet Ocean Ultra Deep Professional reach a staggering 10,929m underwater, breaking the world record for a wristwatch in the Mariana Trench. Now, the Seamaster 300 Master Co-Axial and the Planet Ocean are engaged in their own battle at the top of Omega's steel-diver catalogue. The dial As much as the Planet Ocean is undoubtedly a modern beast, its roots aren't all that detached from the Seamaster 300. The first generation, launched in 2005, took its dial inspiration from the 1960s SM300, reference 165.024. Specifically, it took the same font of Arabic numerals, and used the trapezoid-shaped printed markers to model its applied indices. Its broad-arrow hands are also inspired by… Read More

INTRODUCING: The new Omega Constellation 41mm demands that you look on the model with fresh eyes

Omega's Constellation has always been somewhat of a quiet achiever – a low-key collection that has, thanks to the endless popularity of its space and seagoing siblings, been often overlooked and maybe even, at times, forgotten. That's all changing in 2020, though. Omega appears steadfast in breathing new life into the dressy-come-sporty collection. In January, we saw a brilliant new array of redesigned 36mm and 39mm iterations, and now the Bienne outfit has unveiled an entirely new 41mm variant. The DNA Like the aforementioned smaller members of the collection, this new large-sized model is, of course, based on the 'Manhattan' Constellation. However, while some of the ubiquitous aesthetic traits remain, Omega has heavily reworked the design concept, and the resulting timepiece is a resolutely more contemporary one. The bezel Perhaps the biggest talking point is the glistening bezel. Hewn from a shimmering polished ceramic and still managing to incorporate the quintessential 'claws' at three and nine o'clock, the intricacy of its construction is no mean feat. Essentially, Omega has deployed the full force of its engineering team to create a materially innovative workaround for ensuring that the scratch-resistant materials blend into the solid steel or gold claws with perfect continuity…. Read More

HANDS-ON: The Omega Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition is more grit than glamour

Omega Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition

This year, Daniel Craig will star as James Bond for the final time in the upcoming No Time To Die film, a blockbuster that is sure to be action packed and offer a much needed reprieve from the dystopian movie that is our current reality. On his wrist for this film will be a watch that real-life Daniel Craig actually had a hand in designing, unlike any of the Bond watches that have come before it. It's not just a PR line. Craig himself helped shape the watch we are taking a closer look at today, the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition.  The story so far… As a bit of background, Daniel Craig took the reins from Pierce Brosnan as 007, with his first appearance as the world's most famous spy in the critically acclaimed Casino Royale in 2006. No Time To Die will be his fifth and final appearance as James Bond, making both this movie and this watch particularly special. In an interview with Teddy Baldassarre, Omega CEO Raynald Aeschlimann explained that Craig was "very much involved in giving us the vision, giving us also what he feels that James Bond today in the 21st century should… Read More

The top 5 Omega James Bond watches of all time as chosen by you

Editor's note: Earlier this week, we asked a question on Instagram stories, what is your favourite Omega Bond watch from the last 25 years? Imma jump in here just to say, uh, wut? Where is the Spectre Seamaster 300 Limited Edition (my clear favourite Bond watch)? Where is Pierce's watches? Any of them! It seems you either have short memories, or a serious penchant for the Planet Ocean. Or, more broadly speaking, a preference for the new, because these were the top 5, including a Number 1 that hasn't even been seen on the screen yet! Really? OK, OK. Hey, we don't stack these things, we just report the news. Over to you, James – Andrew  It's Bond Week here at T+T, and I've been shaking, not stirring, my martinis for the last few days – partly to celebrate the British super spy, and partly because Melburnians have once again been relegated to the confines of our stately homesteads (one bedroom apartment for me) … thanks ISO. I took a short break from stockpiling Four Pillars, vodka, Kina Lillet and all the lemons I could carry, to ask you lovely people: What are the best limited edition Omega Bond watches ever made?… Read More

VIDEO: By the end of this in-depth video, you will know if you need the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition

Omega Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition

Sure to be one of the highlights of 2020, the new James Bond film, No Time to Die, is coming. And just as we have with every new Bond film for the last 25 years, we get a brand new Bond watch. This year, we say hello to the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition, an interesting watch for a number of reasons beyond the fact that Daniel Craig is sporting it in his last outing as the world's most famous spy.  The Omega Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition is based on the regular production Seamaster Diver 300M, however it has been tweaked to be more suitable for the wrist of an intelligence officer. The 42mm case is a darker metal than the typically used steel and is actually titanium, the same lightweight material that the Milanese bracelet and folding clasp are made from. The bezel is the same matte black as the dial, and is made from similarly lightweight aluminium. As for the rest of the dial, we are treated to a terracotta-tone lume for the hour plots, hands and 60-minute bezel markings.  This tanned lume adds a significant amount to the overall impression of the watch, fitting in very… Read More

Watches you shouldn't miss, from Omega, Bulgari, Casio and Jaquet Droz

new watches omega bulgari casio Jaquet Droz

This year might be one of the most unusual ever when it comes to new watches being released. While brands were already seeking different ways to share their new releases with the watch-loving community, the global pandemic that we are still watching unfold has put a stop to almost any plans that brands might have had for the year. That means watches are being released in slow drops at the moment, not able to capitalise on the big moments such as Watches & Wonders or Baselworld where the industry is all in one place (though we did our best to make a moment with our coverage of Watches & Wonders Online). To make sure you aren't missing any of the new watches that are being released at the moment, we wanted to take a look at a few pieces that have been released a little more quietly over the last few weeks, including great pieces from Omega, Bulgari and Casio. Omega Aqua Terra, now in green and blue The Omega Aqua Terra is a crowd favourite for its clean design, bulletproof movement and comfort on the wrist. They have been produced in a range of metals and dial colours —… Read More
