Why We Love it

Take a deep breath. Now hold it.

The first minute or so is usually a cake walk. But once you start entering two minute territory and above, your lungs will start to burn, your heartbeat gets louder and the seconds hand on your wristwatch gets slower, and slower … and slower, until your lungs cramp and you have no choice but to gasp for air.

Welcome to the life of a freediver! 

Professional Freedivers are athletes who are able to dive to mind-boggling depths with one, singular breath. In 2003, Omega partnered up with professional Freediver Jacques Mayol, a world-record holder and legend in his sport, who was the first to hit a depth of 100 meters, to create a dive watch specifically for Freedivers called the Seamaster Professional Apnea Chronograph.

This model, a Reference 2595.50, features a 41.5mm stainless steel case with a sapphire crystal, a steel elapsed-time bezel with a ‘scalloped’ edge, screw-down chronograph pushers and a signed crown. Appropriately named the Apnea (cessation of breathing), the black dial features seven disc apertures that gradually turn red in 2 minute increments, counting a total elapsed time of 14 minutes. This quick-reference features allows a Freediver to quickly gauge how long they’ve been diving, and more importantly, how much time they have left to reach the surface, based on their tested lung capacity.

Fitted to its original multi-link stainless steel bracelet with a push-button deployant clasp equipped with a wetsuit extension, it’s powered by a self-winding Omega Calibre 3601 movement. Well-loved showing light normal wear throughout, this one definitely has some stories to tell …

… and plenty left in its lungs to accompany you as you write your own stories into it as well.

Brand Story

+
The story of Omega is one that captivates generations of horological devotees. The second-largest watchmaker in the world in terms of annual turnover, the Bienne-based firm has been continuously producing watches since 1848, which it does today under the auspices of the Swatch Group.

Founded in La-Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland as La Generale Watch Co, Omega was well ahead of the horological curve from the beginning, developing the first minute-repeating wristwatch in 1892 as well as the eponymous “Omega” caliber in 1894. This 19-ligne movement was revolutionary in that its parts could be replaced by any watchmaker in the world without modification, while its winding and time-setting via the crown provided an industry standard.

Omega became the timepiece supplier of choice for the British Royal Flying Corps in 1917, while the Americans followed suit in 1918, choosing their watches for the U.S. Army. Awards for precision chronometry became almost commonplace, while 1932 saw them become the first watch brand to time an entire Olympic Games. Their Marine, which debuted the same year, is regarded as the first commercially available diver’s watch.

During the Second World War, Omega supplied well over 100,000 timepieces to British forces, making it the largest watch supplier to the British and her allies. These watches, from the unique 6B/159 to the famed “Dirty Dozen” W.W.W, remain highly collectible today.

1948 saw the launch of the original Seamaster: Built upon the tool watch legacy of the brand’s timepieces from the War, it’s since become a byword for reliability and legibility, both as a dress watch and, more recently, as a serious diver’s tool. The Speedmaster, released in 1957 and originally marketed for the auto-racing market, first rocketed to space on the wrist of American astronaut Wally Schirra in 1962. However, it became a household name when, in 1969, it accompanied Buzz Aldrin on the Moon, and later helped save the space-stranded crew of Apollo 13 in 1970 by timing a critical rocket burn.

Today, Omega’s watches — all of which feature in-house movements — run the gamut from svelte dress pieces to the venerable Speedmaster in all its guises. Providing an unquestionable value proposition, Omega is a brand that deserves to be at the center of every serious watch lover’s collection.
