Omega will be launching something new tomorrow, something exiting, but I don’t know what! Because of this, they are showing some incredible mechanical art pieces and Monochrome will share these as our Weekly Watch Photo. A slightly different WWP, but as good as the normal WWP.
From time to time, I’m browsing through Ebay, searching for some new, something old, something… well, something with a ticking mechanical movement inside. And sometimes I find these incredible products of someone with a lot of patience. Someone who made a small motorbike or car from old watch parts. I’m always amazed by how cool these pieces of art actually are. Omega must have thought the same, as they showed some computer graphics that remind me of the aforementioned art.
Reminding us of the Omega Speedmaster, the first watch on the moon. And the following shows an Aston Martin DB 5 and reminds us of James Bond. He has been wearing an Omega Seamaster (lately it has been the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean) for quite some years now.
The following images are illustrating Omega’s alliance with the Olympics… of course I could tell more, but let’s just enjoy the very nice images. However… the last image might have something to do with the news that Omega will announce tomorrow. For those wondering, it shows the anchor wheels of the co-axial escapement, and they resemble those of caliber 9300 (the movement of the Seamaster Planet Ocean Chrono, which we reviewed here).
Stay tuned for some Omega news tomorrow.
