At Baselworld last year, Omega stole the show with the NEW Globemaster model. For this Baselworld 2016, Omega will release an annual calendar Globemaster. This watch is interesting for sure.
The first thing I noticed is the 41mm case made out of steel. It looks familiar almost like a Rolex Oyster case but the whole case is brushed . The bezel is also very Rolexesque . It’s fluted and made out of Tungsten. This is fitted on a blue alligator strap with stainless steel deployment buckle. The dial is silver with blued hands and markers with luminous coating.
The most prominent element of this update is the new movement that drives the Annual Calendar feature. It has been designed with an instantaneous jump, while on the dial, each month has been elegantly positioned between the blued indexes. The months are pointed to by a varnished blue hand.
I like the watch overall. I think it’s unique in the way the months are written and displaced in-between the indices. The contrast between the stainless steel case, silver grey dial and blue hands and blue alligator strap is quite classic and appealing. I would have preferred this watch without a date window or date at all but it’s not completely horrible. This watch is certified a master chronometer for supreme accuracy and reliability.
