Omega Only Collection - What Are Your Picks?

If you had only Omega to choose from, what pieces would you include in a 4 piece collection? Wondering specifically on solid GADAs, Divers and Dress options.

Feel free to go sky's the limit on pricing, but bonus challenge - keeping the whole collection within $15-20k

·

The 1957 Trilogy models and the deVille of your choice for dress occasions.

·

I have been enamored with Omega’s lately so weirdly feeling satisfied with my SMP 300…I was going to get the Speedy but the smp juts fits me… weird… oh well call it honeymoon phase I guess… but def. For omegas def. Seamaster SMP and AQT/Speedmaster/deville/

·

If you had to have a separate dress watch, then the Tresor DeVille automatic, which is $6,700, but I would argue that you get an Aquaterra on the bracelet for your GADA watch and get an additional leather strap for dress occasions for the Aquaterra and kill two birds with one stone. That would leave you enough in your 15k budget to get a Seamaster 300, or even a Planet Ocean, or a modern looking 300, and one of the heritage Planet Oceans.

I think the SMP is fantastic. In terms of a diver from Omega it'd be tough to choose between that or the heritage-style 300 in blue. Also, AQT...such a solid, solid GADA.

Fantastic answer. Think I'd go that route with the Aquaterra and follow it up with the Seamaster 300. Honestly need to do more reading up on the Planet Oceans.

As a huge fan of Omega, there are far far too many to list here if we can choose any, including vintage and discontinued references. It is impossible to pick only 4... eg 2915, 2998, 105 refs etc. and these are just Speedies, without even considering the thousands others. So I will restrict myself only to Omegas that are currently available:

  1. Speedmaster Calibre 321 - the legendary Apollo 11 calibre reconstructed and hand-assembled, encased as the iconic Ed White.

  2. Speedmaster Silver Snoopy - the current iteration of the Moonwatch with a twist, and the backstory ... and of course, that caseback.

  3. Aqua Terra World Timer - a fully capable dive watch that can also tell you the time in every time zone!

  4. Seamaster 1948 Small Seconds Platinum - the (ultimate?) understated stealth-wealth watch that is equally dressy and diveable (my only hesitation in assigning this a GADA is its weight, so perhaps the steel version is better in that respect!).

·

Only these two, but the first is one of my greatest design favorites...

The heritage Planet Ocean is beautiful if you want a diver straight out of the late 50's with modern specs. The modern Planet Ocean also is a beautiful watch and if you don't like the skeleton hands of the 300, the Planet Ocean is another dive option. They also have a deeper 600m depth, but since I don't dive that's not an issue for me.

  1. Globemaster, blue dial.

  2. Canopus Gold Speedmaster 321.

  3. Black and Sedna Gold Seamaster, rubber strap.

  4. X-33 Marstimer.

If I had the money to own a Canopus gold Speedmaster, I'd GADA it. Nobody would know what it was unless they were also into watches.

·

I am admittedly not very knowledgeable on all things Omega, but I would use the Railmaster as my GADA, diver would be the Seamaster and an Aqua Terra for my dress.

·

AT, SMP300, Moonwatch, Globemaster

·

Planet Ocean 39.5mm

Aquaterra

Speedmaster

Railmaster

·

just the 3 classics:

I'll go with a mix of modern and clasic.

My Omega collection would be as follows:

  1. Speedmaster Professional (Hesalite/ grail)

  2. Omega 1948 Seamaster Reissue (could function as dress watch and looks a lot like the tool watch my Dad wore to work in the early 70s)

  3. Omega Seamaster 300 (1960s/ love the design and hope for a 60 year anniversary reissue this year)

  4. Globemaster Annual Calendar Pie Pan
