Omega 2-register Chronograph Full set

This is just pure beauty. No discussion possible.

If you have been around enough watches, you know the perfect watch does not exist. But this comes scarily close in terms of design.

For starters, there is just something super attractive about a two-register chronograph. The simplicity and balance are just beautiful. This one is powered by a 320 caliber, which is the two-register version of the legendary 321, found in pre-moon Speedmasters.

Then there is the 35mm case, which might sound small, but it has some serious wrist presence. Executed in rose gold, it adds some dressy flair to an otherwise sporty design.

We have paired this stunner with a green Ostrich strap, bringing out the hue of the gold. We love it, but you are, of course, free to switch to a strap of your liking.

Backstory

Omega was founded in La chaux-de-fonds by Louis Brandt in 1848, although the company would not be named Omega until 1903. It is one of the most successful Swiss watch houses, both in terms of sales and historical significance.

Louis Brandt was already rather innovative before his Omega days. He developed the very first minute-repeater wristwatch with Audemars Piguet in 1892. Although Brandt died in 1903, Omega would not lose its innovative nature. Among its biggest accomplishments are the manufacture of the first tourbillon wristwatch movement in 1947 and the first large-scale commercial implementation of George Daniels’ co-axial escapement in 1999.

The biggest highlight in Omega’s history is undoubtedly the moon landing in 1969. Both Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin wore Omega Speedmasters on the lunar surface. But there is so much more to this Swiss powerhouse. They launched the very first dive watch with the Omega Marine, all the way back in 1932. That is some twenty years before the Blancpain Fifty-Fathoms and Rolex Submariner would redefine the category.

Omega has no shortage of hit collections. From the Speedmaster to the Seamaster and from the Constellation to the De Ville, with tons and tons of variations within all of those lines. You may opt for a yellow gold pie-pan Constellation or for a chunky Ploprof. There is something for everyone.

And that is before we go into Omega’s military history, including the Dirty dozen MOD-issued field watch. And we cannot forget James Bond, with his tricked out Seamasters since 1995’s Goldeneye.

No wonder then, that we love Omega so much!
