On the first day of March, OMEGA celebrated the release of the Globemaster, in the company of Oscar-winning brand ambassador, Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything) and a host of VIP guests at the Mack Sennett Studios in LA.

We know from first hand that the Globemaster was an eagerly awaited model. WatchPaper writer, Michael Vinovich was among the first to try it and after we published his review, we received several emails asking us about the release date. Now the wait is over, the Globemaster has officially arrived.

The Globmaster, apart from being a superb timepiece, it represents an important milestone in the history Omega, as it is the first model to receive the new Master Chronometer certification, set by the independent Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS).

Here is what Eddie Redmayne had to say about the Globemaster:

There’s a romance to traditional watches – a history. There’s something sincere and honest about them, a sort of integrity. I love OMEGA’s legacy; watches for the Airforce, the first watch on the moon – it’s about storytelling. OMEGA’s history is unrivalled…

As actors, we attend many events, we are often on the red carpet; wearing something that’s classic but also modern, gives me confidence. It’s a wonderful thing, because I don’t have to overthink it.

Now you have an extra reason to take a trip to you local OMEGA authorized dealer and take a closer look at the Globemaster.
