Yellow gold and red isn’t a color combination that I would expect to like very much, but I have to admit I think it looks rather incredible here. Everything about this watch unabashedly oozes luxury – if Omega were to say that the watch came in a velvet box I wouldn’t be surprised one bit (fyi, it does not). Because the basic silhouette is so simple, I’d expect that the details are what’s really going to make the difference here, so I’m excited to get my hands on one of these soon enough to check out the dial finishing, the way the hour markers curve with the lines of the, and the enamel detailing on the caseback. Part of me is bummed that you can’t admire the incredible caliber through a sapphire window, but I ultimately applaud the choice of a solid, decorated caseback, which is both a nice throwback in general and a faithful homage to Omega’s history of incredible casebacks. Along those lines, I’m also thrilled that Omega opted for a manually-wound caliber here. Without it the watch would still be plenty good, but for me that takes it to the next level.
