Feature: 5 Favourites From Baselworld 2018
From the city of Basel comes the world’s biggest and best watch show: Baselworld. Every year, the big hitters, Rolex, Omega, Patek Philippe and many, many more, come together to show off their latest releases, and 2018 is no exception. Here are five of our favourites from this year’s show.
Review: Rolex Daytona vs Omega Speedmaster Ceramic
It’s a fast-moving world. Child pop star Justin Bieber is now in his mid-twenties, the iPhone is over a decade old and Barack Obama has been out of office for over a year. For luxury brands, it’s becoming more important than ever to stay relevant and fresh. So, as Rolex, a watchmaker that sees evolution and revolution as synonymous, takes its time to give the public what it wants, there’s an opportunity presented for other brands to catch up. But has that already happened?
Feature: 5 Weird Omega Watches
There's no doubt about it—Omega has made some of the most iconic timepieces ever seen, been involved in moments that have defined history as we know it today. Omega has made a lot of other timepieces as well, some more unusual than others. Here's a selection of some of the strangest.
Feature: 3 Watches That Are Cheaper Than You Think
Money no object, we'd all be wearing Patek Philippes, F. P. Journes and the like, but unfortunately that's not the case. With rising RRPs and a healthy collectors' market, the best watches continue to get further out of reach for many people. But there's hope yet, and we've got three of them right here.
Feature: Patek Philippe vs Omega
Let's get straight to it—the Patek Philippe 5170P in my right hand is worth almost 20 times as much as the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch in my left. With the Omega clocking an RRP of just over £4,000, that places the 5170P at a whopping £73,000. While some of that cost gets you a platinum case and diamonds on the dial, it's safe to say that most of it is spent on the bit you don't often get to see—the calibre CH 29-535 PS movement. But with the Omega carrying a similar hand-wound manual chronograph calibre 1863 movement for a fraction of the price, what are you really getting when you spend all that extra money?
Feature: Omega Seamaster Old vs New
While the Seamaster had been in Omega's catalogue since 1948, the oldest in the current collection, it wasn't until 1957—four years after Rolex debuted its Submariner—that Omega fashioned the Seamaster into a dedicated diver's watch. Since then, it's become one of the world's most famous models, competing against Rolex to conquer the deep and worn by James Bond to add another movie death to Sean Bean's repertoire. It's been a long, long journey for the Seamaster, fraught with difficulties, but it survived. Just. Was it worth it?
Review: Omega Speedmaster 60th Anniversary Limited Edition
It's not every day you turn 60. It's quite the milestone. With the Speedmaster hitting 60 in 2017, Omega could have slapped a birthday badge on the current Moonwatch and been done with it—and we know from experience that they're not above that—but for this particular birthday, they've pulled out all the stops. This watch here may seem like a very well looked after 1957 CK 2915, but it's not—it's the 2017 Omega Speedmaster 60th Anniversary Limited Edition.
Review: Three Quartz Watches You Should Like
Even if you've only been interested in watches a short while, you'll likely already know that mechanical is king. It's traditional, exceptional, nostalgic; a far cry from the cold, industrial efficiency of quartz. Quartz nearly destroyed traditional watchmaking after all, and is the bastion of the cheap, plastic digital watch that took over the industry in the 1970s.
Review: Omega Speedmaster - Hesalite vs Sapphire
If you're reading this article, chances are you've followed the same journey trodden by many before and found yourself considering an Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch. And so you should; it's a brilliant watch that offers unrivalled heritage and surprisingly good value.
Feature: Omega Planet Ocean Old vs New
Omega's Planet Ocean is something of a staple of the brand's line-up, and it feels like it's been around for ever—but that's not that case. The year before it appeared on the wrist of James Bond in 2006's Casino Royale was the year it first appeared at all, and that realisation comes of something as a surprise.
Review: Omega Speedmaster Speedy Tuesday Limited Edition
The release of a new limited edition by Omega probably won’t come as a surprise to anyone. The brand has made something of a habit of releasing special edition models—from Seamaster Bond watches to a plethora of Speedmasters celebrating the watch’s inextricable history with NASA (we recently covered the release of the Speedmaster 1957 trilogy, and have previously reviewed the Speedmaster Silver Snoopy Award, as just two examples.)
News: Omega 1957 Trilogy
If you're even vaguely familiar with Omega, you'll know the watchmaker is quite partial to a limited edition, especially for an anniversary. But hold your collective sighs, because this new trio of limited editions is well worth a proper look. Sixty years ago, in 1957, Omega released three watches that changed its fortunes forever. Moving away from the slender, dressy designs typical of the watchmaker, Omega launched a triple threat line-up with a sportier, chunkier aesthetic. Those three watches were the Speedmaster, Railmaster and the Seamaster 300.
Feature: Evolution Of The Omega Speedmaster
3,000 tonnes of Saturn 5 rocket, consuming fuel at fifteen tonnes per second, travelling 240,000 miles away from Earth, at a cost equivalent today of £25 billion, is perhaps one of the most ludicrous ideas to ever dawn upon mankind. But as is well documented (and sometimes disputed) that is exactly what happened in 1969. And then it happened again, and several more times too. This is the quest for Earth's nearest neighbour, it's only natural satellite, the bleak but beautiful Luna.
Feature: Brightly Coloured Watches
Black and steel. Lots of black and steel. The average watch display has all the vibrance of a February puddle—but as we slowly amble towards spring, it’s time to look at something with a bit more colour to it. It’s no secret that the Swiss are a reserved people, and many timepieces from the landlocked confederation err on the muted side, but if you look hard enough, it’s possible to find a selection of colourful delights to wear in the sunshine. If you’re having trouble picking out something appealing for the change of seasons, here are four suggestions that cater for all budgets.
Review: Omega Speedmaster Apollo 13 Silver Snoopy Award
Snoopy, the iconic cartoon dog from Charles Shulz’s classic Peanuts comic strip, is probably not something you automatically associate with high-end watchmaking. Especially with a brand like Omega, whose distinctions include taking the role of Official Olympic Timing Partner at almost every Games since 1932, and being the creators of the first watch on the Moon. But it’s this latter claim to fame that is the link between Omega and the aforementioned cartoon pooch.
Feature: Top Four Ceramic Watches
Ten years ago, most people would have associated the word 'ceramic' with potted plants and tea parties. After all, the Greek word that ceramic is derived from—kerameikos—means 'for pottery'. But that's all changed now, and ceramics are once again at the cutting edge of material science, harder, stronger and more impressive than ever before. We take a look at four ceramic watches to see just how good the technology really is.

Feature: 3 Underrated Bargains
Ever caught yourself looking at a watch that’s well out of budget, thinking, ‘What if?’, only to mentally slap yourself back to harsh reality? Those most exquisite and expensive timepieces may forever be consigned to only the wildest dreams, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get something rather special for the price of a mid-range Breitling. Here are three underrated watches that offer exceptional watchmaking for much less than you’d expect.
Feature: 3 Watch Collection For Less Than A Rolex Submariner
A time-only, non-date Rolex Submariner in steel will cost you, today, £5,450. You don’t need me to tell you that this is a sizeable amount of money—enough to start wondering if it’s worth getting several cheaper watches instead. Is it possible to get a varied, three-watch collection of high-quality watches for the budget? Well, we’ve certainly had a go; here it is, a three-watch collection for less than the price of an entry level Submariner.
Feature: 3 Clever Dive Watches
The International Organisation for Standards, under ISO 6425, states that a recognised dive watch should meet the following requirements: a unidirectional bezel with five minute markers; clearly distinguished minute markings on the dial; readability at 25cm in total darkness; shock, chemical and magnetic resistance; an operational indicator; oh—and of course, a 100-metre depth rating. This covers the bare minimum to qualify—but what if watchmakers went above and beyond?
Feature: 3 Watches You’ve Never Even Heard Of
For someone looking for a sporty watch in steel, chances are they will probably pick up a Rolex Submariner, perhaps a Panerai Luminor if they’ve got a hankering for something a bit more exotic. But what if you don’t want to contribute to this sea of Submariners, want something less common than the lagoon of Luminors. If you’re one of those people, then take note, because here are three watches you’ve probably never even heard of.
