An Omega classic returns to center stage with a monochrome color scheme dial and the option of two distinct metal alloys: stainless-steel, 18k Sedna™ gold or a two-tone mixed version of both these precious metals. This “Omega Constellation Globemaster Annual Calendar” dress watch is back in black for 2019, now let’s take a closer look.
We’ve reviewed other versions of the Omega Globemaster, such as the 39mm non-annual calendar models that came equipped with the 8900 caliber movement, back at Baselworld 2015, which you can read more about here.
But, the more accurate predecessor to this latest release was the 41mm “Omega Globemaster Annual Calendar” (Ref#: 18.104.22.168.06.001), that was released the following year at Baselworld 2016, as you can read more about here. This model was the first to showcase Omega’s new (at the time) in-house METAS approved caliber 8922, while silver grey sunburst dial featured the months inscribed with cursive initials.
The 41mm case can be had as aforementioned in either: stainless-steel, 18k Sedna™ gold or a two-tone mixed version. All these variations come with a transparent sapphire exhibition case back, which allows to view the inner workings of the mechanical movement.
This case back includes a Central Observatory medallion set in a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal; while engraved to the steel or gold (varies with chosen version) enclosure is the inscription “Constellation” and “Annual Calendar”.
Mounted to the case is a fluted bezel that has been renewed for this version by a new material known as “tungsten carbide”, which is a very sturdy and scratch-proof material. It also comes equipped with a stainless-steel setting-crown. All topped by a domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides. Water-resistance on this watch can reach up to 100 meters (330 feet).
Time is exhibited on a diamond-polished black dial with white or Sedna™ gold hour index markers, followed by white printed minute index markings. The dial is shaped in a pie-pan style, as inspired by the first Constellation models that were introduced back in 1952. Each facet of the pie-pan form includes a month of the year written in a cursive font.
The upper-half of the dial features the Omega logo and the inscription “ANNUAL CALENDAR” and “Globemaster” written in the same cursive font as the dials month initials; while the lower-half of the dial includes an 18k white or Sedna™ gold Constellation star with textured contours over the dials flat surface.
The faceted white or Sedna™ gold central hands and hour index markers have all been fitted with a luminescent coating, for an enhanced legibility. There is also a date aperture at the 6 o’clock position.
