The Omega Globemaster is available in 39mm case made of: stainless steel, 18k gold, two-tone or a limited edition platinum. Features a fluted bezel made of tungsten carbide (a material more scratch resistant than ceramic) and a pie-pan dial in white opaline or sun-burst blue, with index markers and an aperture for the date at 6 o’clock. The watch comes with the option of being mounted to a brushed stainless steel bracelet or a blue alligator strap.

Omega claims this watch has the most advanced mechanical movement to be developed, the: caliber 8900. To support these claims Omega has submitted this watch to a whole series of different tests, than those required to receive the COSC certification. The process has been designated “METAS – Master Chronometer certification” and consists of eight fundamental steps, such as:

  • Each Omega caliber 8900 being submitted to a COSC examination, before being cased and also undergoing a METAS certification process.
  • Testing the function of each movement and watch when exposed to magnetic fields greater than 15,000 gauss.
  • The average daily precision in different positions and temperatures, between 0 and +5 sec per day, before and after exposure to magnetic fields greater than 15,000 gauss.
  • As well as, testing the autonomy, power reserve stipulated in-house by the watch model and water resistance.

Although the new certification process will focus on timekeeping and mechanical functions, Omega CO-Axial movements will still undergo COSC process, as well. But, the partnership with METAS, creates an alternative to Swiss institute’s expertise in measurements science. It’s pertinent to mention that the “METAS Master Chronometer certification” is open to any watch from any manufacture; but, the Omega Globemaster is the first to pursue it. The owner of each Globemaster will receive a digital copy of their watch’s actual METAS result.

This new movement, caliber 8900/01, self-winding with 60h power reserve, with co-axial escapement, anti-magnetic up to 15,000 gauss, as COSC and METAS certified. The caliber is also viewable through a sapphire crystal caseback which has a medallion set right in to the crystal. This medallion exhibits an observatory surrounded by a polished sky marked with eight stars that represent the eight points of METAS certification and the eight chronometric records Omega has set since it began in 1903.
