New Omega timepiece 'uses elements of meteorite'

First published: 21-10-2010

Watch fans after a product which offers some unusual elements to the design may want to check out a new Omega timepiece.

That is because the Speedmaster Professional Apollo-Soyuz 35th Anniversary has a dial that uses elements of meteorite, which has impressed Watch Observer enough to give the model a respectable rating of 64.5 out of 100.

Glimpsing upon this dial may well entice watch fans to make a purchase, as the slivery tones used for the counters on the display blends in well with the black galvanic features for the rest of the dial.

Other features which may lead to consumers snapping up this timepiece includes the fact that it has a water resistance of 50-metres, which helps the practicality of the product, as well as a considerable size of 43 millimetres, making the model easy to see when on the wrist.

In other news, it seems that Omega timepieces are proving popular on the celebrity scene, with a Seamaster Planet Ocean product from the company recently being donned by Mark Harmon in the US drama NCIS, Watch ID reported.
