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.

The long anticipated new Omega Planet Ocean GMT is here for 2013. Before settling into being a major part of the Seamaster Planet Ocean collection, Omega has debuted the Planet Ocean GoodPlanet GMT, as part of their collaborated efforts with the Good Planet Foundation environmentalist initiative.
Executed in beautiful copper-colored 18 carat gold, we have the Omega Aqua Terra GMT reference 184.108.40.206.06.002 in for review today. Defining the high end of the Aqua Terra GMT series, I was delighted when Omega offered to let me borrow one for review.
Omega is clearly prepared for BaselWorld 2013 and has announced three new limited edition models in advance of the show, which takes place in April of this year. The first of their announcements is the Constellation Sedna, a ladies’ sized Constellation crafted from a new alloy which Omega calls Sedna.
Omega announced recently that they have designed an anti-magnetic watch movement based on their in-house co-axial 8500 series. The calibre 8508 uses specialized non-ferrous materials in its construction which allow it to be unaffected by magnetic energy up to 1.5 Tesla (15,000 gauss).
