WATCH WINDERS SUITABLE FOR OMEGA WATCHES:

When selecting a watch winder that is suitable for your Omega watch things are made really quite simple as the majority of their current models fit within the standard winding specifications shared by the vast majority of all automatic watches on sale today.  If you want to learn some of the basics our guide to selecting a watch winder would be the perfect place to go.

The majority of Omega watches require between 650 and 800 TPD and need to be wound bi-directionally, here are a few of the most popular Omega models and their winding specifications:

Model TPD Direction
Seamaster 300m 650 Bi-Directional
Seamaster Planet Ocean 650 Bi-Directional
Speedmaster Racing Chronometer 650 Clockwise
Constellation 8600 650 Bi-Directional
Speedmaster Moonwatch Co-Axial Moonphase 700 Bi-Directional

Please do not be concerned if a watch winder has slightly more TPD than is suggested for your watch.  There is protection built into each automatic watch that protects them against over-winding… Once the watch is fully wound then any extra turns per day generated by your watch winder would simply not be counted.

FIND THE RIGHT STYLE WATCH WINDER FOR YOUR OMEGA WATCH

Once the basics of TPD and direction of winding have been covered you can start to have fun finding the perfect winder for your watch.  We all like different things and as you were faced with many options when choosing your watch there are similarly many options when it comes to choosing your watch winder.

Here are a few suggestions of how your watch can be complemented by its winder:

Several Omega watches have either Blue or Orange bezels – Try matching these to outer case colour of your winder.

A Planet Ocean with an Orange strap – How about a Wolf Cub in Orange Saffino?

An Aqua Terra with a black strap – How about a Rapport Evo Cube in Black or Platinum Silver?

A Brief History of Omega

Omega SA is, without doubt, one of the giants of the watchmaking world, based in Biel/Bienne, Switzerland.  Louis Brandt founded Omega back in 1848 as the La Generale Watch Co.  In 1982 the company changed its name to Omega SA as it is known today.

Omega SA is a subsidiary of the Swatch Group.

Omega’s fine heritage in watchmaking can be traced back to some quite special moments in the history of watchmaking.

  • 1892 – The World’s first-minute repeater. Louis Brand the founder of Omega collaborated with Audemars Piguet who provided the movement.
  • 1947 – Omega produces the World’s first Tourbillon wristwatch.
  • 1999 – The World’s first mass-produced wristwatch incorporating the coaxial escapement. The coaxial escapement was actually invented by George Daniels, an English Watchmaker.
  • Omega was the first watch on the moon – worn by Buzz Aldrin, the Omega Speedmaster Proffessional Chronograph created horological history.

Many famous faces love to wear an Omega watch but probably none better know than 007 himself, James Bond!  Omega has enjoyed a very close relationship with 007 since 1995 when Pierce Brosnan wore a Seamaster Professional in the film GoldenEye.  Bond has worn Omega watches in many films since including Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace and Spectre.

Other famous wearers include George Clooney, Nicole Kidman, Tom Hanks, Elvis Presley, John F. Kennedy and Prince William to name but a few.

With such fine heritage, your Omega watch deserves a beautiful watch winder.
