It feels like quite a long time since we first saw the Omega Seamaster Bullhead at BaselWorld this past spring. Now officially announced, this quirky new chronograph was inspired by the 1969 Seamaster Driver (aka the Bullhead) and sports only a few changes when compared to the original, and very rare, Omega Bullhead.
Here we have one of my favorite chronographs from Baselworld this year. While it is certainly tough to beat Omega’s stunning Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon, if you’re looking for something a bit more under the radar while still offering the charm of a Moonwatch, it’s going to be hard to deny the appeal of a titanium Speedmaster with a beautiful blue dial and Omega’s excellent 9300 co-axial chronograph movement.
When it comes to the Speedmaster line from Omega, many immediately associate the line with the very famous Moonwatch, and rightfully so. But what happens when Omega goes back to a time before the Moonwatch to inspire a new entry in the Speedmaster family? Today’s review of the Omega Speedmaster ’57 Co-axial Chronograph answers that very question.
Omega, long time official timekeeper of the Olympics, has released another limited edition watch in honor of the 2013 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

The Omega Speedmaster Spacemaster Z-33 watch is the thematic follow-up to the famed Omega X-33 pilot watch, that we recently discussed again as it was worn (and loved) by Astronaut Chris Hadfield (now apparently retired).

For 2013 Omega fully rounds-out the Seamaster Aqua Terra family with the new Aqua Terra Chronograph GMT. With a new movements and solid looks, this is the semi-formal sport watch in the Aqua Terra collection to lust after. I had no idea that the Aqua Terra collection was so beloved until aBlogtoWatch viewers started to ask…

Each year at Baselworld we like to sit with Omega watches CEO Stephen Urquhart to discuss the business, the brand, and overall what is new for 2013. This year Mr. Urquhart speaks with aBlogtoWatch about some interesting details regarding Omega’s use of ceramic in their watches now and into the future, how features from the Aqua Terra 15,000 Gauss anti-magnetic
A simple evolution, the Omega Speedmaster Co-Axial Chronograph Dark Side Of the Moon (debuted here) proves remarkably lovable on the wrist. In a glossy black ceramic case with matching black ceramic dial, the “Moonwatch” naturally borrowed the name “Dark Side Of The Moon” from such things as the actual dark side of earth’s moon, and Pink Floyd’s famous album.
Today we had the opportunity to view the entirety of Omega’s new 2013 line up, including the new Speedmaster ’57 Automatic Co-axial chronograph and it’s a complete stunner.
