The next unveiling of OMEGA’s revolutionary watch

Vienna is a European city known for its classical style and elegance. This made it the perfect location to launch OMEGA’s new Globemaster in Austria.

Hosted at the OMEGA Boutique in the capital city, the evening was a chance for specially invited guests to admire the new watch and learn more about its unique standing in the industry. The Globemaster is the World’s First Master Chronometer, a title that signifies its pioneering standard of precision and performance. Having passed 8 intensive tests set by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS), the Globemaster is the first timepiece to achieve Master Chronometer status. It is therefore at the forefront of OMEGA’s newest era of excellence.

Along with a glimpse of the watch itself, there was also an insightful demonstration of the effects of magnetism on a mechanical watch. As the Globemaster is resistant to magnetic fields up to 15,000 gauss, the on-site watchmaker was able to show guests that there was no impact on precision or performance when exposed to these fields.

The occasion was very well-received and continues the swell of enthusiasm that the Globemaster is creating around the world.
