Omega Creates New Ladymatic Timepieces

By Paul Joseph

Swiss luxury watch brand Omega has built on the popularity of its Ladymatic series of timepieces by creating new models based on the striking originals.

The new Ladymatic watches, which will debut at next month’s BaselWorld watch fair in Switzerland, feature 34mm polished stainless steel cases with white, black or rose ceramic between the decorative wave and inner casebody.

Each watch is presented on either a matching satin-brushed leather strap or a polished stainless steel bracelet, whilst the dials boast 11 diamond-set indexes in facetted 18K white gold diamond-shaped holders.

The polished alpha-shaped minute, hour and seconds hands are crafted from 18K white gold and the minute and hour hands are coated with white Super-LumiNova. A domed, scratch- resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides protects the evocative dials.

The “Brilliant Omega Cut” diamond found on the screw-in crown is complemented by a choice of a dazzling bezel with diamonds arranged in a snow-set pattern, or a polished stainless steel bezel. The polished caseback of each piece features a sapphire crystal, offering a clear view of the OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 8520 within.

Since 2010, Omega’s Ladymatic range has been fronted by Australian actress Nicole Kidman.

The new Ladymatic watches will be on display at BaselWorld 2013 from April 25th – May 2nd.
