— Know the second, minute, hour, day, and month at a glance.
On the most complicated of days, anything that can simplify your life is a very good thing. And that’s one of the reasons Omega’s new Globemaster Annual Calendar watch feels so appealing right now: At a glance, it can tell you the present second, minute, hour, day, and month.
It only helps that all this modern functionality is wrapped up in a design that takes its cues from vintage replica watchmaking: The fluted bezel on both the brushed stainless steel and rose gold versions gives it a sophistication that you won’t find in more contemporary designs. Both versions feature a 41mm case, a leather strap, and cursive writing indicating each month along the outer edge. A fourth hand jumps to the section indicating each month of the year, and a window at six o’clock makes sure you’ll always know the date.
The stainless steel version carries its deep blue strap into the details on the face, while the rose gold version’s dark gray face makes for a dial that’s easy to read. But they both represent a marriage of timeless design and contemporary convenience that’s hard to beat.
