Omega Ladymatic Watch Collection
Omega has just released news on this rather nice mechanical watch for women. Timepieces for ladies are usually beautiful, but mechanically simple inside relying on quartz movements much of the time. As more women are becoming interested in mechanical watches, brands are responding by offering interesting pieces for that segment. Omega's new Ladymatic, will come in a number of styles - here seen in 18k rose gold with diamond decoration.
I am quite impressed by not only the design, but also the components of this collection. The 34m wide watches come in steel, yellow or red gold, and with a unique bracelet or strap choices. The one piece lugs and nicely rounded case are made much more interesting by the sides of the case with their wave pattern style. Inside the dial and on the sides of the case are ceramic elements that Omega is cleverly using for the rich look of the dial and case design. Various level of diamond decoration and distinct Omega look really help this collection stand out.
Will the beauty of this piece help entire female watch owners to the appeal of mechanical watches? It is hard to say. The exposed movement caseback will give women a view of the Omega Calibre 8520 or 8521 automatic movement that has Omega's co-axial escapement, is COSC Chronometer certified, and has a silicon balance spring. The movement is quite appealing - even for men, and will be nice to look at through the back of the watch. An interesting collection, I look forward to seeing more from Omega in this range soon.
