Baselworld 2013 Highlights for the raphmeister... Omega shares some nice Speedys!

Basel rolls around again and somehow it feels this took longer than you know i love me some Speedys and the 2 watches from Omega this year that has my attention are the 57 and the Dark side of the moon. Can't wait to see them in the metal and ceramic :) for other Basel Omega news click HERE

Omega Dark Side of the Moon... case is in black zirconium oxide ceramic and is a good sized 44.25mm. The hands and applied indeces are 18kt white gold. Movement is the Omega in-house Co-Axial caliber 9300 automatic and it's equipped with a Si14 silicon balance spring for added stability, allowing Omega to offer a 4 year warranty on the movement. The strap is black Cordura fabric with a black ceramic buckle. sadly the price is a bit steep. chf 10.7k or about S$14k-ish.

Speedmaster Moonwatch “57” – tribute to the original Speedmaster with the straight lugs extending from the watch case and bracelet just like the very first OMEGA Speedmaster from 1957. It has a Speedmaster Broadarrow effect on right counter and the timepiece is also updated with the 9300 movement (launched in 2011, Omega's first calibre to incorporate a chronograph movement). It will be available in various case materials including steel, gold, titanium and interestingly bi-color – which had a recent revival in demand.

Other offerings will be coming our way too... such as the highly anti-magnetic Aqua Terra Anti-magnetic 8508 watch, new additions to the staples in Omega collection, including the Seamaster Aqua Terra Day-Date, De Ville Ladymatic Bi-color, Sedna Gold and a new addition to Seamaster Planet Ocean collection, the Good Planet watch.

I hope to share live pix of the 2013 Novelties soon :) cheers, raph
