Pick A Present

Perfect choices for the holidays

The holidays are upon us and the days will be come busier and busier. We’ll be tracking events to attend, family reunions to join, office parties to enjoy, and making our gift list for those we love and hold dear (and checking it twice…). Everyone is thinking of special gifts to give (and wishing for ones to receive), whether to make a special milestone or celebrate the wondrous holiday.

OMEGA has simplified the monumental task of choosing those special gifts by reminding us of their timepieces that will be perfect for him, for her, and most importantly, for ourselves. Think of OMEGA as being your personal Christmas workshop with the most talented and hardworking elves ever. Let’s take a look at these OMEGA timepieces that should be on our list.

One for him
The OMEGA Speedmaster in 38 mm is an ideal watch for the man who wants things a little different. The size is just right for most gentlemen’s wrists, not too large.  This timepiece steps beyond the typical black, blue, and white color palette by offering this option in dark green. Switzerland in winter must be a beautiful sight – the dark green pine forests, the glistening clean white snow. This vision may have been the inspiration behind this Speedmaster. The stainless steel and 18K yellow gold model is nicely partnered with deep green tones. The dual bezel is a nice touch too, and the diamonds on the outer ring of the bezel add a little more sparkle. The inner ring is green aluminum and has the iconic tachymeter. The green chronograph hands and markings are easily visible against the opaline dial. The dark green watch is an elegant option for the gentlemen.


One for her
If you’ve promised her the stars, then this is the year you can make it happen. The OMEGA Constellation makes sure you make good on your promise. Aside from the witty play on words by giving her the (entire) Constellation, this watch is elegant and timeless. This version features the classic aesthetic that the Constellation is known for, but added a bit of a modern touch with the polished bevels. The 28 mm model in stainless steel and 18K Sedna™ gold has a diamond-paved bezel. The white mother-of-pearl dial is exquisitely enhanced by the diamond hour markers. The gentle gold star in the middle of the dial is a sweet touch too. This OMEGA is an ideal choice for the holidays or year-round.

One for the active man
For some people, dark blue is definitely the way to go. And OMEGA makes this an easy choice to make with the Seamaster Diver 300M. The watch is perfect for the outdoor, and specifically underwater, adventures, and is the watch of choice of many gentlemen, James Bond included (007 can’t go wrong, right?). The stainless steel and 18K Sedna™ gold case in 42 mm is the perfect match for the deep blue dial (accented with laser-engraved waves) and the blue rubber strap. And this watch is more than just a handsome timepiece. This Seamaster Diver has Master Chronometer certification that guarantees precision, performance, and magnetic resistance.


One for the sophisticated man
There are times (no pun intended) that call for a watch that is elegant without being overtly powerful. OMEGA offers us the Seamaster Aqua Terra and it fits the bill quite nicely. The brown leather strap is sedately elegant when combined with the stainless steel and 18K Sedna™ gold case. The watch is refined and elegant, but it gives little hints to the active lifestyle the gentleman also leads. The triangular indexes that mark the hours are a design element taken from OMEGA dive watches. The silver dial has sleek horizontal stripes that echo the clean look of wooden decks on luxury sailboats. This ever-elegant OMEGA is powered by the Co-Axial Master Chronometer calibre 8900. This watch is for the man who is just as comfortable in a tuxedo at an evening gala as he is in a casual outfit while out on the water. A glimpse at his watch not only gives him the time but reminds him that adventures await outdoors.

Check Your List, Check It Twice
OMEGA timepieces are the perfect gift for that special someone. Your holiday shopping will be enjoyable and easy if you start it off with a stop at OMEGA. Check your list, and be sure your name is on it too.
