Omega goes deeper

Posted by Schiffman's at 9:00:00 AM in Omega (39)

There’s a diver’s watch that can go deep, then there’s an Omega diver’s watch that can go even deeper. Omega Planet Ocean Deep Black has just been unveiled in Asia, featuring an entirely ceramic material, the first of its kind. Ceramic is harder, lighter, and more scratch-resistant than traditional watch materials. The Asia launching was remarkable since Omega didn’t reveal the diver’s watch in Baselworld, the biggest watch event in the world. The company seems to send a signal that Asia—particularly China—presents the future of Omega sales. Back to the watch, the model can go deep as far down to 600 meters. That’s almost twice as the standard diver’s watch. The watch houses the Omega Master Chronometer Calibre 8906, a 60-hour power reserve, and a silicon balance ring, among others, that make this watch truly indestructible.

Market value of a watch

Posted by Schiffman's at 12:00:00 PM in Omega (39)

Did you know you can use economics to gauge a luxury watch’s value if you’re thinking of buying one? Omega continues to experience worldwide acceptance as the company announced mid-April an increase of $0.01 per share in its quarterly common dividend. The watch company has 188.2 million shares of common stock. While all these sound too business-like to a watch collector, it’s clear that Omega offers value as a luxury watch or as a collector’s item. When a company is gaining shares, investors are trusting that the company is producing a product that the market accepts. On this note, if you’re a watch lover you’ll love the idea that your timepiece is widely renowned in the world.  For a collector, that means it’s easier to resell the watch as long as the company maintains its stock value on an upward swing.

Next stop, Mars?

Posted by Schiffman's at 7:55:00 AM in Omega (39)

Recently, we’ve seen NASA released 360 images of Mars. It’s earthlings first virtual reality feel of the red planet. NASA used the technology of Oculus Rift, the VR product of Facebook. The Martian landscape does look unwelcoming and relentlessly oppressive. The Rover, the probe NASA has sent to Mars, seems to withstand the alien elements. Clearly, the Rover is designed with magnetic stability and atmospheric pressure in mind, two critical physics laws that affect instruments in space. We’re reminded of this situation because, not too long ago, when men first set foot on the moon, a watch had to endure the same space environment so as not to compromise data accuracy. In fact, it’s NASA’s choice of a watch to accompany astronauts: Omega, the first watch on the moon. Next stop, Mars.

Pluto here we come

Posted by Schiffman's at 2:21:28 AM in Omega (39)

The late Clyde Tombaugh, who discovered Pluto in 1930, would have celebrated his 109th birthday last February 4. But there’s another cause for celebration on the same day early this year: earth received its closest ever photos of the dwarf planet from New Horizon, the self-propelled satellite launched by NASA in 2006 to go to Pluto. New Horizon was some 126 million miles from Pluto when it took the pictures, and by July, it will do a close flyby of the icy planet and its moons. It’s a milestone for earthlings to finally reach the last planet in the solar system since Galileo Galilei opened our eyes to the near universe--never mind that the satellite is unmanned. Omega, the precision watchmaker and NASA’s official timekeeper, celebrates with the world for this momentous human achievement.

Dark Side of the Moon

Posted by Schiffman's at 11:00:55 AM in Omega (39)

Every Apollo astronaut has worn Omega’s iconic Speedmaster Professional.  To salute their pioneering spirit Omega has created the new Speedmaster “Dark Side of the Moon” – a black ceramic Co-Axial Speedmaster. The concept came from what the Apollo 8 astronauts’ first experience – feasting their eyes on the dark side of the moon. This watch is pure innovation. The model sports a black zirconium oxide ceramic dial matching the case perfectly. The watch also sports deep space visibility. It is durable, accurate and is really cool. It evokes the allure of deep space travel. It evokes history and human desire to reach what has not been reached before – something the Apollo missions and Omega have accomplished.

Omega: Tells Not Just Time, It Also Tells History

Posted by Schiffman's at 11:00:25 AM in Omega (39)

Because of these, Omega can make a claim that there watches do not just tell time, they also tell history. This is what had been said about the Seamaster collection having seen many battles of man, sea and will.

The Allure of the Dark Side

Posted by Schiffman's at 9:00:50 AM in Omega (39)

It has inspired numerous films, songs, and literature.  Elton John had sung a cover and so did Pink Floyd.  It was the theme of a popular Russian television series, as it was the tone that set a blockbuster movie about transforming robots. It was even made into a novel back in 2006. The dark side of the moon, it’s mysterious, secretive, its face forever turned away from earth. Omega was likewise drawn to its enigma with the release of its watch model, The Dark Side of the Moon Speedmaster. It celebrates the Apollo 8 astronauts’ feat, the first men to have seen this dark side in 1968. The watch is made from a single piece of black zirconium oxide ceramic, rugged and strong, but alluring like its source of inspiration.

Extreme space environment

Posted by Schiffman's at 8:00:00 AM in Omega (39)

You know you can’t survive in outer space, but did you know how fast things unfold when out there without life support? First, you’d lose consciousness in a matter of 15 seconds for lack of oxygen. Then your blood and body fluids would boil because of the absence of atmospheric pressure to keep them in liquid state. But before they evaporate, they’d lose heat at once and freeze over in as short as thirty seconds. Your organs would also expand because of the boiling liquid inside you, giving you a nearly bursting look. In the meantime, hurling dirt and small particles would come at you at bullet speed, while the sun bombards you with radiation at unimaginable levels. Space is harsh, which makes you appreciate that Omega being the official NASA timekeeper, the watch must be extra tough to function in outer space.

Watch for the Champs

Posted by Schiffman's at 9:00:20 AM in Omega (39)

“Faster, Higher, Stronger”—the Olympics summarizes its history with only three but powerful words. The Olympic Games are considered to be the world's foremost sports competition with more than 200 nations participating. The Olympic Games are held every four years, with the Summer and Winter Games alternating, meaning they each occur every four years but two years apart. Their creation was inspired by the ancient Olympic Games, which were held in Olympia, Greece, from the 8th century BC to the 4th century AD. 
Since, the Olympics has given birth to the mightiest and strongest athletes in the universe, a dream arena for the champions yet unborn. It is the ultimate test of every athlete, who claims to be the best. A battle of the flesh and combat of spirits where only the fastest, the highest and the strongest emerge as winners. Every step taken, time is of the essence. No effort is wasted, no movement escapes, all is counted because Omega is watching very closely.
As the official timekeeper of the Olympic Games, Omega has seen so many champions and two of these champs are legends in their own game, Usain Bolt in track in field and Michael Phelps in swimming. 
Usain St. Leo Bolt is a Jamaican sprinter widely regarded as the fastest person ever. He is the first man to hold both the 100 meters and 200 meters world records since fully automatic time measurements became mandatory in 1977. Along with his teammates, he also set the world record in the 4×100 meters relay. He is the reigning Olympic champion in these three events, the first man to win six Olympic gold medals in sprinting, and a five-time World champion. He is considered to be the greatest athlete ever. 
Michael Phelps, on the other hand, is a retired American swimmer and the most decorated Olympian of all time, with a total of 22 medals. Phelps also holds the all-time records for Olympic gold medals (18, double the second highest record holders),Olympic gold medals in individual events (11), and Olympic medals in individual events for a male (13). In winning eight gold medals at the 2008 Beijing Games, Phelps took the record for the most first-place finishes at any single Olympic Games. Five of those victories were in individual events, tying the single Games record. Phelps is the long course world record holder in the 100-meter butterfly, 200-meter butterfly and 400-meter individual medley as well as the former long course world record holder in the 200-meter freestyle and 200-meter individual medley. 
For both of these record holders, nothing is more essential than time, and for the record, Bolt and Phelps give the merits to the Omega Olympic Pocket Watch 1932 Rattrapante Chronograph.
Stamped on the case back is the official five-ring logo of the Olympic Games, Swiss made and only 300 pieces made, the historic movement is housed in an 18 Ct yellow, white or red gold watchcase of 100 of each, the white enamel dial is a faithful replica of the original 1932 design. The case back opens to reveal the movement, protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. Powered by the Omega calibe3 3889A, a high performance movement with an advanced Rattrapante chronograph mechanism controlled by a double column wheel, the Omega Limited Edition Pocket Watch 1932’s 53.7 mm movement is assembled from restored and enhanced components at 36, 000 alterations per hour, allowing measurements accurate to 1/10th of a second and is certified as a chronometer by COSC. The title Official Timekeeper of the Olympic Games and the words Limited Edition are engraved on the case back, along with the edition number of each piece: (001/100) for each of the 18 Ct yellow, white and red gold editions.
Extraordinary as the Olympics, the OMEGA Olympic Pocket Watch 1932 Rattrapante Chronograph is a great history of countless victories and celebration of lives that have been part of its greatness. It is also a narration of mechanical horology with Swiss craftsmanship and the most contemporary watch making technologies. Indeed, the OMEGA Olympic Pocket Watch 1932 Rattrapante Chronograph is the greatest symbolism of friendship and brotherhood not only of the fastest, highest and strongest athletes but also of the International Olympic Committee and the brand that made the Olympic history possible—Omega.
Set your own record and be a champion yourself with Omega. Choose your Omega watch at Schiffman’s in Winston-Salem. Schiffman’s is an authorized dealer for Omega.

The Glory of Sports Time-Keeping

Posted by Schiffman's at 12:00:00 PM in Omega (39)

Humans have always been fascinated with sports since time immemorial. We all know that competitive athletics somehow stirs us at gut level, either as participant or as spectator; and we also know that sports competition spurs trade, political posturing and cultural razzle-dazzle. But more often than not, it is the thirst for justice and equality that fuels this love, nay addiction, of sports. In sports, we expect that the “rules of the game” will be strictly enforced; if not, the spirit of sport becomes a sham. And that’s where sports time-keeping comes in.
Sports timekeeping has been a part of the Omega story for more than a century. The on-going development of new timekeeping and data handling technologies have been an important part of Omega's eighty-year partnership with the International Olympic Committee and the world’s finest athletes and is a defining part of the commitment to measuring, displaying and distributing the great performances at each edition of the Olympic Games.
Come see timepieces that have kept pace with ever-better performances – from the company that have been responsible for the timekeeping of the world’s most prestigious sporting events – at Schiffman’s in Winston-Salem.

Planet Ocean

Posted by Schiffman's at 1:00:00 AM in Omega (39)

The Earth is our home – the only home we know of. It is our responsibility to preserve and protect it for generations yet unborn; it is our duty to allow them to enjoy the beauty and magnificence of the planet as we know it. It is too selfish to allow it to continually change for the worse, which we know happens because of our careless footprints. We burn fossil fuels such as coal, gas and oil for generations; while we are at it, we clear forests hastily, and now we have dramatically increased the amount of carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere, the temperatures are rising, reaping the ill-effects of our actions. It’s in fact a domino effect. Warmer temperatures would mean water (which includes the 20 percent of the world’s fresh water supply) evaporating more rapidly resulting in lower water levels and possible shortages. With the burning of fossil fuels comes the greenhouses gases and smog-causing pollutants which have been linked to many health problems like respiratory diseases and cancer. Every day we feel the effects of climate change in the form of extreme weather events, milder winters, hotter summers, higher levels of smog in the cities, changes in the timing and rate of reproduction of some mammals, and glaciers in every region of the world are melting, putting millions of people at risk for floods, droughts and lack of drinking water.
Indeed, over the past 50 years, humans have modified the Earth’s environment to a greater extent than throughout the rest of the history of humanity. We are living at a critical time and we are all personally responsible for the future of the Earth. Because each person has a role to play, each person has the power and duty to mobilize themselves to act. One person has already made his part and continues to do so with his GoodPlanet Foundation.  Since 1990, Yann Arthus-Bertrand has flown over approximately 100 countries, inviting those who would like to listen to reflect on the evolution of our planet and on the future of its inhabitants. Created in 2005 by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, the GoodPlanet Foundation seeks to inspire a lifestyle that is more respectful to the Earth and its inhabitants. It proposes realistic, optimistic solutions and encourages each individual to become committed to the planet, through a series of programs, which is constantly being developed and strengthened in order to “bring ecology at the heart of consciousness”. In 2009, it was awarded public interest status and 3 years after, the Foundation obtained the IDEAS label, awarded by an independent committee, which recognizes its budgetary management, the effectiveness of its programs and the quality of its governance. 
Omega in 2011, as part of their social responsibility, worked alongside the GoodPlanet Foundation to raise public awareness of our oceans and sharing its dedication to sustainability – together, they aim to raise awareness of the beauty and majesty of the oceans, the dangers they face and the importance of preserving and appreciating these natural resources – and with it the inspiration to create the Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M GoodPlanet – an innovative wristwatch that serves as a tribute to the GoodPlanet Foundation and the positive work it does for our environment and underwater ecosystems.  Omega has committed a portion of the proceeds from the Seamaster Planet Ocean 600 M GoodPlanet to fully funding a project to preserve the mangroves and seagrasses in Southeast Asia and educating the local population about the conservation of these important natural resources that are such a critical part of a balanced eco-system.
Yes, saving our ocean doesn't have to be a daunting task that means sweeping life changes. Simple things can make a difference. Like buying a timepiece.  The Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M GoodPlanet features a bold blue lacquered dial with applied indexes. The polished and facetted rhodium-plated hour, minute, seconds hands and aluminum-fashioned GMT hand are coated with white Super-LumiNova which emits a blue light. The exception is the minute hand which emits a green light, as does the dot on the diving bezel. There is also a date window at the 3 o’clock position. A domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal – enhanced with anti-reflective treatment on both sides – protects the dial from damage above and below the water’s surface. The bright orange GMT scale on the bezel ring and central GMT hand make it possible to track two separate time zones, ideal for the frequent traveler who enjoys taking in the beauty of the oceans, lakes and rivers first-hand. The lacquered orange 24-hour scale stand out on the bi-directional polished blue bezel ring, a useful feature which complements the helium-escape valve located at 10 o’clock on the brushed and polished 43.5 mm stainless steel case. The caseback, engraved with “GoodPlanet Foundation”, also features a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, making it possible to see Omega’s revolutionary technology within. Inspired by the diverse and captivating colors of the ocean, this timepiece is available with a classic stainless steel bracelet, or a sporty blue rubber strap. Like all of Omega’s Seamaster Planet Ocean timepieces, this model was designed with extreme adventurers in mind and is water resistant to 60 bar (600 metres / 2000 feet). At its heart is the exclusive Omega Co-Axial calibre 8605, a self-winding movement with a three-level Co-Axial escapement and Si14 silicon balance spring, this remarkable timepiece performs with such reliability and accuracy that it is offered with a full four-year warranty.

The True Lady

Posted by Schiffman's at 2:00:00 AM in Omega (39)

What is a true lady? Certainly not the archetypical ones that just sits and smiles and nods without speaking their minds? No. A true lady (more so, nowadays,) encircles herself with an atmosphere of unruffled strength, which, to those who come into it, gives confidence and repose.  She understands that she must respect others to be respected, comfortable enough with her femininity not to use it as a weapon nor as a form of currency; has a quick, refined, and intelligent sense of humor; and has opinions sharing them with prudence. And of course, a true lady dresses well out of respect for her person and not to please others. Hence, a true lady wears only small, tasteful jewels rather than larger gems of lesser worth. A true lady, wears the Omega DeVille Ladymatic. 
The Omega DeVille Ladymatic is one of the timepieces that have been created by Omega to address true ladies’ desire to own wristwatches that make profound fashion statements but which are also equipped with the best series-production mechanical watch movements in the world. With an enchanting design, captivating bicolor models, vibrant dials, and state-of-the-industry movement, the Omega DeVille Ladymatic is the perfect lady watch for the true lady in you.

The New Constellation

Posted by Schiffman's at 1:40:10 AM in Omega (39)


From Constellation Manhattan in 1982, Omega continues to re-design its Constellation collection by updating the line and upgrading every feature of the now infamous collection. But, the new and improved Constellation collection, inspired by its iconic ancestors, still has that familiar star at six o’clock and the claws, refined and updated, still define every watch in the collection. 
Part of the collection is the Constellation Brushed Chronometer. It has a domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides, a red gold case with a fancy mother-of-pearl with diamonds. It has a self-winding movement with Co-Axial Escapement for greater precision, stability and durability, free sprung-balance system with silicon balance-spring, and automatic winding in both directions to reduce winding time. Indeed, the current collection recalls the tradition of the line while proclaiming originality, design excellence and technical innovation that would have been the envy of its ancestors.
