A choice that Omega is not making easy by unveiling a few weeks before the end of the year a trio of timepieces of great elegance. Indeed, the Biel-based watchmaker continues its creative momentum, already quite prolific with the release of the highly acclaimed Speedmaster Chronoscope, by offering not one but three new references of Constellation Globemaster Annual Calendar. And to further complicate this choice, which is proving to be a difficult one, he offers cases machined in beautiful materials and intense dial colors.

It takes up two features typical of watches from the 1950s: the fluted bezel that caps the 41mm-diameter case and the 12-sided “Pie Pan” dial. This pleated face, available in green, burgundy or SednaTM gold, displays the month in handwritten typeface pointed by a central hand.
