To Infinity and Beyond: The Best of OMEGA at Baselworld 2018

It was a big year for Omega. From celebrating the Seamaster’s original launch in 1948, and the Diver 300M’s 25th anniversary to the unveiling of much-awaited, exquisitely feminine pieces, and even a dark, beautiful ode to the cosmos, the brand’s offerings at this year’s fair has us wanting to get our hands on them, ASAP.

Here, we round up our favorites.

SPEEDMASTER “DARK SIDE OF THE MOON” APOLLO 8

Commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 8 mission, which allowed human eyes to see the dark side of the moon for the first time, this new take on the Moonwatch is gorgeous for a variety of reasons: a stunning ceramic exterior, a skeletonized dial that reveals lunar-inspired laser ablating, and a transparent caseback that greets you with astronaut Jim Lovell’s eternal words to mission control: “We’ll see you on the other side.” Indeed.

Seamaster DIVER 300M CO-AXIAL MASTER CHRONOMETER

Even classics need an update, and in this respect, Omega managed to deliver, with the revamp of its iconic diving watch. It was a makeover, both inside and out, as the watch now not only comes with a smaller, 42mm face, but also a reintroduced laser-engraved signature wave pattersn, raised (and much more luminous) indexes, a new and improved helium escape valve, and—a walk on the wild side, this—a crystal caseback.

DE VILLE TRÉSOR

Classic and elegant but young and modern—a difficult combination to master that would be a disaster is lesser hands, but Omega’s Trésor collection for women both draws inspiration from decades past while looking forward with a sleek, sophisticated aesthetic that’s all at once simple and luxurious.

SEAMASTER 1948 SMALL SECONDS AND CENTRAL SECOND

Happy 70th, Seamaster. We’re going to justify our deep desire for these limited edition tributes to the original with the fact that modern life is lived in a proverbial battlefield all its own. A stretch, we know, but how can you not want these two stunning watches that just might make you feel like you could lead armies—or, at the very least, take them on? Grandpa would be proud.
