To celebrate the world’s greatest city, Omega has introduced a Seamaster Exclusive Boutique New York Limited Edition.
Available for sale only in Omega’s NYC boutiques, this 39.5mm Seamaster is priced at $7,600. Only 399 pieces will be produced, with the limited edition number engraved on the side of the case.
This special Seamaster features a light grey dial with a gradient effect, contrasting nicely with its 18K white gold hands.
On the caseback, circling the sapphire crystal exhibition back, are New York’s iconic city sights, such as the Statue of Liberty, Rockefeller Center and the Empire State Building. The exhibition case back showcases the Omega Master Chronometer Caliber 8800 powering this timepiece.
According to the brand, “Omega’s Seamaster Exclusive Boutique New York Limited Edition is one of a series of watches celebrating the world’s great cities. Most of us live in cities and despite their scale and challenges, we make strong emotional connections to them: we feel at home, we build communities and feel a sense of civic pride. Omega, though proudly Swiss, is a truly global brand with boutiques in great cities all over the world, and we are often asked to create watches that tap into our customers’ sense of place. Our exclusive boutique collection is our way of answering this call. New York, which has been described as the capital of the world, or the modern-day Rome, is singular in the sense that everybody in the world has experienced it in some way: through movies, art, songs. It’s a city you ‘know’ before you even arrive. For the most part, this is due to New York’s extraordinary architecture and feats of engineering. Hence the inclusion of the Big Apple’s most iconic landmarks on the watch caseback: the Statue of Liberty, the Manhattan Bridge, the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, Rockefeller Center and the Empire State Building. Finally, it’s worth mentioning the significance of the Seamaster: a watch synonymous with travel, adventure, ocean exploration and the willingness to seek out new horizons.”
This is a great watch dedicated to a great city. Act fast, as there are only 399 timepieces available and then they are gone forever.
