Omega has honored one of the world’s greatest cities (if I may say so myself) by releasing the Seamaster Exclusive Boutique New York Limited Edition. Only 399 examples of this gradient-dialed Seamaster are being made, and they’re available exclusively at Omega boutiques in the Big Apple(there are two); each is individually numbered too. Paying tribute to a city that never sleeps, the watch features a detailed engraving of the city’s iconic skyline along an inner ring that runs the circumference of the Omega Master Chronometer Caliber 8800. Peering through the display caseback, the Statue of Liberty and Manhattan Bridge, as well as the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, Rockefeller Center, and Empire State Building are all visible. The charm of this limited edition is in the details, and they don’t end with the skyline engraving.
The grey dial is slightly domed and lacquered, accentuating the gradient. A date window sits at six o’clock and the date wheel matches the color of the dial itself; the hands, applied Omega logo, and indices are all made from white gold.
The watch is part of a larger series, with five global centers recognized: Paris, London, Singapore, New York, and Switzerland. The City Editions are all based on the Seamaster platform and feature dials specific to each cultural capital.
