New to Omega‘s Constellation family of timepieces is the Swiss luxury watchmaker’s Globemaster. Employing what Omega claims is its most advanced mechanical movement ever, the new design has undergone a brand new certification that goes beyond that of the usual COSC. Called “METAS,” the eight-step certification process tests:

1. The function of the movement during exposure to a magnetic field of 15,000 gauss.
2. The deviation of the running time of the watch in six positions.
3. The deviation of the running time of the watch between 0 and 2/3 power reserve.
4. The function of the watch during exposure to a magnetic field of 15,000 gauss.
5. The deviation of the average daily precision of the watch after exposure to a magnetic field of 15,000 gauss.
6. The average daily precision of the watch in tests replicating daily wearing conditions (six positions, two temperatures.)
7. The power reserve of the watch (autonomy – functioning without winding.)
8. The water resistance of the watch (tested in water.)

This comes after the watch’s caliber 8900 that has already been submitted to and certified by the COSC. The Globemaster is the first timepiece to ever be awarded, or even attempt, the METAS certification.

Boasting a 39mm case of stainless steel, 18 SEDNA gold, two-tone or platinum, the Globemaster makes use of a pie-pan dial along with a fluted bezel — the latter of which is perhaps a nod to the Constellations of the ’50s. The caliber 8900 can then be seen through the watch’s sapphire case back while a beautiful medallion — which depicts an observatory surrounded by eight stars as an homage to the steps of the METAS certification, as well as the eight chronometric records set by Omega throughout the 20th century — is set into the crystal. Finally, the watch is even water resistant up to 100 meters.

Omega’s Globemaster will soon be available with prices starting around $7,700 USD.
