Watch Of The Week: Omega Globemaster

Omega’s retro Globemaster is not just a pretty face

Major watch brands are currently indulging in a little nostalgia. Longines released a steel Pulsometer Chronograph inspired by a doctor’s watch from the Twenties, Patek Philippe reimagined its classic Nautilus with a rose gold case and Seventies-styled chocolate brown dial, while the design of the Bell & Ross red gold WW1 Edición Limitada takes its design cues from the first pocket watch-inspired wristwatches.

The latest contender leading the retro charge is Omega’s Fifties-inspired Globemaster. Featuring the pie-pan dial originally made famous by the marque’s 1952 Constellation, the impeccably updated timepiece sits between an elegant dress watch and a very wearable daytime piece. It is the world’s first officially approved master chronometer — making it one of the highest functioning watches on the market — and is available in a range of metals including stainless steel and 18k gold.
