Without this building material, Omega would hardly be conceivable today, since around ¾ of all models have built Omega steel at one place or another. Omega watches with and from steel are popular with the wearers often in the watch case itself or in the bracelet. The Omega steel, which is often brushed and polished, is particularly resistant and gives the watches a high degree of robustness, which is why models such as the Seamaster and Speedmaster from the ocean to space can be used everywhere and even do so in part! However, if you do not want to hit the same high waves on the dramaturgy scale, a Speedmaster is also very well equipped for festive and elegant events. The eye-catching and eye-catching aesthetics of this Omega fit perfectly with any ball outfit.
Omega sapphire crystal
Without Omega sapphire glass in Switzerland, nothing happens, because every watch from Omega is equipped with this glass type. The reason for this is the great resilience of Omega Saphirglas. The early clocks often had acrylic, which, however, very quickly scratched and so many watchmakers changed in the 1970s. Today, watches have either sapphire or mineral glass worked in. Omega sapphire glass, however, is a better choice for the farmer and bearer of every watch because it also has a very important task - it protects the dial, pointer and clockwork itself, the heart and the soul of every watch. Omega Saphirglas is today regarded as the hardest glass in the world, is more robust, heat, cold and pressure resistant than mineral glass and is a lot less vulnerable to scratches.
Colors Omega Watches
Black and silver - the classics in the colors, not only in cars and suits but also in watches. Especially models with steel bracelets and robust housing like the Speedmaster Spacemaster Z-33 or the Speedmaster HB-SIA look not only robust and conspicuous in the silver look, but also radiate a very special aesthetic. The same is true for black. Many Omega watches like the De Ville with their black leather strap exude a harmonious and noble atmosphere.
Alternatives to Omega watches
While Omega is unique in its history and philosophy, some models of the house come very close to other watches. The Omega Seamaster Diver 300 competes, for example, with the Rolex Submariner. Both models are designed not for relaxing walks in the park, but for dives of up to 30 meters deep in the sea. Both the Seamaster and the Submariner have a stainless steel bracelet, a black dial and an easy-to-use diving cap. Only at the price the two Streithähne differ from each other. While the Rolex Submariner is priced at around € 6,800, the Omega Seamaster Diver 300 weighs € 5,500. Although the variant of the competitor Rolex costs more, there is the possibility of personalization on top. For whom, however, a much more favorable alternative is more important than an image change, the Prospex Solar Chronograph Diver's from Seiko could be interesting. Visually similar, this model also has a stainless steel case. Also the Diver's trumps with easy-to-use fold clasp on the band, screwable crown and Hardlexglas. Intergriet is also a stopwatch with a maximum running time of 60 minutes and a long course reserve of up to six months. If the Diver's and the Seamaster were to compete against each other in an open competition, one could dive with the Seiko without great fears up to a depth of 20 bar, which corresponds to a depth of about 200 meters. But the big surprise now follows. Despite all these functions, Seiko demands only 399 € of your money bag for the Diver's! A real bargain, with a silver stainless steel bracelet, black dial and red seconds hand is also quite nice to look at.
