Omega's Museum Collection highlights old pieces that represent the brands longstanding heritage.
This particular piece harkens back to Omegas of the 1930's purpose built for Aviators.
At 40mm, its presence on the wrist is firmly planted in the modern, while its overall design language casts an eye back to the elegance of the past. Its matte black dial features vintage aviation-style luminous Arabic numerals with a sub seconds register at 6:00. A large domed steel bezel controls an inner timing bezel finished in brushed steel with 12-hour markers and a luminescent arrow to allow for elapsed time measurements. All of this is enclosed in a lovely domed-sapphire crystal that mimics the angle of its oversized, downturned lugs.
This is a great opportunity to own a modern, reliable, chronometer rated oversized pilot's style watch with a terrific retro look!
For Omega's Museum collection, the brand carefully selects models that are not only significant to the brand, but also are over fifty years old. Traditional design language with updated movements are the key characteristics for the collections, without any compromises.
