Omega 22.214.171.124.01.001 Review
Omega watches have been inextricably tied to the culture of Swiss watchmaking since the forerunner to the Omega brand was founded in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland in 1848. Today, Omega is headquartered in Biel/Bienne Switzerland and continues to produce some of the finest luxury timepieces in the world.
The Omega brand spirit is tied to innovation and pioneering “firsts” – making it natural that an Omega watch was the first watch on the Moon. But Omega 126.96.36.199.01.001 Men’s Seamaster can literally make you feel out of this world. Silver in color, black dial, beautiful craftsmanship in shape and design & a renowned brand-Omega!
Automatic movement watches have several advantages. Longevity is probably the number one benefit. Most automatic watches are considered to be heirloom pieces. This means they have the potential to last for several lifetimes, not just a couple of decades or more. Quartz watches have circuitry which will not last forever, Automatics are built with many moving parts and requires no electronics to run.
“Dial” you can dive with!
Stainless steel case upholds a dignified design to complement your dynamic persona. The case itself is detailed with grooves right at the front.
Unidirectional black ion-plated bezel borders the black colored chronograph dial. Luminous hands and dot hour markers of this Omega watch are prominent and easy to look at. Minute markers around the outer rim add a sporty feel and three chronographs – 60 seconds, 30 minutes and 24 hours enhances this “Seamaster” timepiece.
Scratch resistant sapphire crystal, screw down crown and Screw down case back ensure that no foreign substance hurt your timepiece. Helium escape valve is one more feature to serve the same purpose. A helium escape valve provides functionality for divers operating at depths for a period of time or under saturation.
Divers usually spend prolonged hours in diving bells under pressure breathing a breathing gas mix that contain the gases helium or hydrogen. Since helium atoms are the smallest natural gas particles found in nature, these gas atoms are able to work their way inside the watch. But when the decompression stops during resurfacing aren’t long enough, a pressure difference builds up between the trapped gas(es) inside the watch case and its environment.
Depending on the construction of the watch case and crystal, this effect can cause damage to the watch, like making the crystal pop off. But you don’t worry! You will own Omega’s Seamaster which has water resistant at 300 meters / 1000 feet.
Stainless steel case is coupled up with a dashing stainless steel bracelet. The band also has fold over clasp with push button that adds convenience and safety for the user.
