Omega Globemaster Watch Collection Review

History of the Omega Globemaster Watch Collection

The Omega Constellation Globemaster collection consists of the most classical and elegant timepieces from Omega. Omega has been a huge and successful brand for more than 50 years now. There is a defined set of rules, ideas, and values that are followed by every single craftsman and watchmaker at Omega. The Omega Globemaster was one of the first collections ever to be launched. Every Omega timepiece has a long and rich history behind it. The Omega Globemaster was created in the 1950s, under the Constellation collection. This makes the Omega Globemaster an older timepiece as compared to The Speed Master and Seamaster collections.
At the time of Omega Globemasters origination, the pie-pan structure was the most famous article in the Omega Catalogue. The very first timepiece was the 1952 Omega Constellation Automatic Chronometer 2648. Omega Globemaster is the ancestor of all the other Omega Collections and this watch had the limited-edition chronometer movement, which was originally launched in 1948. Around the year of 1952, it was one of the most famous timepieces to hit the markets.

Omega Constellation Globemaster timepieces were an inspiration for people in the Omega headquarters at Geneva. The high demand and popularity of Omega and the Globemaster in particular, helped Omega to create much more advanced timepieces which resulted in the invention of The Seamaster and all the other collections that we see today. Thus, the Globemaster was the reason that the family of automatic chronometer Omega Co-axial watches was ever created in the first place. The Constellation collection was always committed to strive towards excellence in all aspects of watchmaking with perfection. Omega chose the name, Constellation; with reference to the set of stars which are always consistent and positioned at the same place all the time, just like the timepiece. By keeping the name Constellation for their collection of watches, Omega wanted to make its customers realize that just like theses set of stars, the Constellation Collection will be a set of the most reliable watches ever built. From 1952 to the 1970s, Omega was the largest manufacturer of luxury watches with the help of Constellation and the Globemaster collections. The elegant designs and excellent overall performance were the prime features that Omega focused on in its early days. At the start in the 50s, the pie-pan dials, the beautiful cases, stylish hour shaped markers, smooth bezels, and the chronometer movements were some of the major features that made the Omega Globemaster and Constellation series stand out from the rest of the crowd. These were some of the finest catalogs of watches at the time which were available in steel or gold dials, held onto the wrist by leather, gold or steel bracelets and straps. The Omega Globemaster Gold watch was also included in the Omega Constellation Deluxe collection. Another limited-edition timepiece was the Omega Constellation Grand Luxe. It included platinum dials on Brick link bracelets and straps at that time.
There were many different experiments done in the coming years around the 60s. At this time, the Constellation collection was given the nickname Connies by users and customers. Omega made sure that its Connie Collection never fails to amaze people. They added some great, exceptional features like the convex sided dial which introduced the pie-pan feature in Omega Globemaster Collection.

The 1966 Omega Constellation was a trademark watch and had a huge overall impact on Omega and its customers. It soon became one of the favorites among the customers and they totally loved it. Omega added additional features, but the touch of the classic and luxurious Globemaster Collection was never lost. Every latest timepiece had newly added features every time with a vintage touch. In the 60s after the success of the 1966 edition, some changes like the minimalistic dials and integrated lugs were introduced. Stainless steel, platinum and gold dials were added in the different upcoming varieties of timepieces under these categories. They had an overall uncluttered style when the fluted bezel version was released in 1966. The elegant bezel became a trademark of the Constellation and Omega Globemaster Collection, just like the authentic Geneva Observatorys symbol of Omega Constellation which was printed at the back. The 1966 Omega Constellation was also an inspiration for the creation of the all-new 2015 Omega Globemaster.

If we talk about chronometer movements and the Co-Axial Calibre features, at the start of Omega Globemaster collection, these bumper movements were Calibre 352 and 354. This was the original design for the bumper movement, and it moved back and forth at an angle of 120 degrees. In 1956, Calibre 501 and 502 were introduced. An later, in 1959, Calibre 551 and 561 were also introduced. Another added feature like 24 different embedded jewels, beryllium balance and anti-magnetic features were also incorporated during this time. After this, in 1966, Calibre 564 was introduced, and in the year of 1970, the Calibre1011 and 1021 co-axial standards came in existence.
