Omega Globemaster Review

An In-Depth Review of The Omega Globemaster, The World's First Master Chronometer.

Some things only get better with time, a term that marketing professionals call incremental product innovation. Sometimes though, a product makes an innovation that is more of a quantum leap and less of an incremental improvement. This is the case with the Omega Globemaster.


What does it mean to be the world's first Master Chronometer?

Certified by METAS (The Federal Institute of Metrology in Switzerland), this is a second-round testing designation that takes watch testing to a whole new level. Once the more mainstream COSC chronometer designation is received, the watches go through further testing, this time in real-life wearing conditions at a second institution (METAS). Omega earns the Master Chronometer designation once the watches show excellent resistance to water and electromagnetic interference; enemy #1 of mechanical watches in a digital world where we all carry around devices that emit EMFs.

What makes the Globemaster different from the rest of the Omega Constellation family?

Originally a label found on all Omega Constellations from the 1950s, Omega took a nostalgic idea and brought it into the future with a world-class timepiece. One look at the silver pie-pan dial and the 18kt Sedna gold 39mm case made from Omega's proprietary hue of rose gold, one can see a watch that has all the aesthetic elements of a perfect watch.

While this looks like a whole new design for the Omega Constellation collection, nevertheless, there are several similarities between the Globemaster and the rest of the Constellation family such as the Constellation's signature star located on the dial at the 6 o'clock position and the observatory logo on the case back but let's not get side-tracked with it's good looks.


What's the power reserve like on the Omega Globemaster?

The 39 jewel movement that keeps this watch ticking for 60 hours straight on a full wind is the Omega Master Co-Axial caliber 8900 with its twin barrels it beats at 25,200 vph.

Omega knew that this watch is the real deal and therefore stepped in the ring with the rest of the prizefighters to demonstrate that they can hold their own along with the best. It passed the 8 point testing by METAS and was given the certification of a master chronometer.
