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 in San Francisco, Omega watches has just announced a new limited edition watch to celebrate their continued relationship with the Emirates Team New Zealand (ETNZ) for the 2013 edition of the America’s Cup boat race…

For 2013 the newest member of the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean collection is the long-awaited GMT. Just before the annual Baselworld watch trade show event we debuted to the world the new Planet Ocean GMT GoodPlanet watch here. That blue and orange version of the new GMT watch bears the GoodPlanet foundation name…
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 188.8.131.52.06.002 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.

According to the code-based gnomes in Wordpress, aBlogtoWatch had 430 posted articles in 2012. How we are supposed to choose the top articles from that is news to me? We feel that most of what we did in 2012 was pretty stellar.
Adam Optican wants an Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean so badly he wrote a song to the beat of its Omega in-house made calibre 8500 Co-Axial movement. The song is a fan redo of the 2012 James Bond 007 Skyfall movie theme. This is of course appropriate because Omega is the official watch of James Bond, […]
An ad for the original Omega Ploprof stated, “It may not look pretty on the surface, but deep down it’s beautiful.” It is a curious statement for an official advertisement, but well sums up a lot of what the original early 1970s super diver was all about. Omega was one of the lead innovators along […]
Article contributed by E.M. Maximilien: Omega is known for being the brand with the first watch (Speedmaster) on the moon, however, the best selling Omega watch might be the Seamaster series; which includes the very watch worn by secret agent 007 since 1995 and more recently in the 2008″Quantum of Solace” James Bond movie.

With the latest James Bond film “Skyfall” hitting US theaters on November 9th, 2012 Omega has announced a new limited edition model to tie in with the 23rd installment in the franchise.

For 2012 Omega released a new 18k red gold version of the Seamaster Planet Ocean three-hand and chronograph models with a new type of “Ceragold” bezel.

Following up on that, I’d like to share a bit more of my passion for all timekeepers vintage by presenting a “state of the market” article. My personal interest, and the […]
I recently learned an interesting fact regarding the history of the Omega Seamaster collection. The Seamaster and Seamaster Planet Oceans that we know today are hardy tool watches suitable for diving, James Bond, and overall feeling like high-function instruments that is made really well…
