1. Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional
Launched in 1957, the Speedmaster is an amazing watch that has a legendary story about the space missions and adventure. The features of this timepiece included a notable black dial covered by a hesalite crystal with a label thin hour and minute hands, small seconds subdial, 30-minute and 12-hour recorders, and a special central chronograph seconds hand.
The heart of this Moonwatch is the Omega's mechanical caliber 1861 although it is a hand-wound movement, it has been upgraded numerous times over the years but remain mostly the same as the one that enabled the watches that accompanied during the six trips to the moon of the NASA astronauts. The Speedmaster Moonwatch is available with either a strap or a bracelet. Each timepiece has the two additional NATO and black Velcro straps. Moreover, it comes with tools that can change the straps, a Speedmaster loupe and a book that highlights the Moonwatch's adventures.
2. Omega Constellation Co-Axial
The Omega Constellation family first started in 1952 although due to a trademark conflict, the collection was originally known as the Globemaster in the United States but was later on resolved in the year 1956.
The Omega Constellation "Manhattan" was launched in 1982 that introduced the four now-known "griffes," or claws at 3 and 9 o'clock, which formerly handled the sapphire crystal in place and helped assure the watch to remain as waterproof.
In 2007, Omega launched its established Co-Axial calibers with current and unique escapements giving smaller friction, greater mechanical proficiency, and outstanding chronometric achievement over time. The performance of the new escapement is such that each Omega timepiece is a COSC (Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres) - certified chronometer presented including a full warranty of four years.
Price when reviewed: $2, 590
3. Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Master Co-Axial
A muscular timepiece with clean and notable lines is what the Seamaster Aqua Terra possessed. The dials of the Aqua Terra 150 M collection revive the artistic wooden decks found on the well-made luxury sailboats. The example shown below highlights a coated silver dial finished with a pattern of the Teak Concept. Dark blue magnifies the 18k gold seconds hand phased hour and minute hands.
One of the best features that a stainless steel case of this watch has is its Master Co-Axial caliber 8500 which is COSC-certified chronometer movement; that is also manufactured exclusively in resisting magnetic fields greater than 15,000 gausses which can be viewed through a transparent case back unlike most of the antimagnetic watches. Some watch brand companies offer mechanical timepieces that have antimagnetic inner cases that also serve as a protection. The way the Swiss company improves their designs is through fashioning key movement elements from nonferrous materials, producing the movement itself invulnerable to magnetic fields which are important features today as we deal with magnets more than everything else such as smartphones and tablet cases to refrigerator doors.
4. Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600 M Co-Axial 42 mm
Omega is very well-known for its performance in space but is also performing significantly under the water. The first Omega watch that was designed for deep dives was launched in 1932, and it was known by the name of "Marine." During these early days, Omega was able to accompany many explorers on their underwater journey. William Beebe, a Marine biologist, and explorer wore an Omega Marine during his record-breaking Bathysphere dives just like what the inventor of Scuba did, Commander Yves Le Prieur. Furthermore, some famous undersea explorers wore the Omega Seamaster PloProf and the Omega Seamaster Apnea. They are Jacques Cousteau and Jacques Mayol, respectively.
Omega extended its maritime heritage in 2005 with its launching of the Planet Ocean line. One of the stylish Omega watch models that pay tribute to the Omega's dive watch legacy is known to be the Omega
Seamaster Planet Ocean 600 M. Also, this Omega timepiece is unidirectional rotating bezel watch that has a water resistance of 2,000 ft or 600 meters.
5. Omega De Ville Prestige
Even the most trained adventurers must come to a point in their life that they have to wear a dress watch occasionally. So, again, the Omega watch brand doesn't miss anything like this kind of watch. The Swiss company offers a time-honored selection of timepieces such as the De Ville Prestige collection that has characteristics of purity, classic styling and luxurious appearance that will always blend into the fashion world. The Omega model shown above features a 39.5-mm stainless steel case with a striking two-tone, matte effect white dial guarded by a scratch-free sapphire crystal and a case that is water resistant to 30 meters or 100 feet.
The Caliber 2500 with the Co-Axial movement where the Co-Axial escapement was launched in the year 1999, is known to be the heart of this collection that presents the historical importance of its quality.
Describing the "best" watch is indeed subjective, but the LWR team chose these five to be on the list of the top Omega watches for men mainly because of their legendary stories. Each of the above mentioned top Omega watches has a legacy that serves as the proof of their long lasting performance, may it be on a space mission or underwater exploration. Also, the price plays a significant role in this selection. The more features the watch has, the higher the price.
