    Omega Globemaster (pie-pan!!), the first watch to get the METAS certificate...

    I think this is a really nice new Omega. I love the (return of the) pie-pan-dial in combination with the fluted bezel. It's the first watch ever that has the METAS certificate, and therefore Omega can call the new Globemaster "master chronometer". The 8900 and 8901 kalibers run @ 3,5hz (or 25,200beats). I think this watch is a real stunner....

    Its a really strong design, for sure. The blue in steel, very nice

    'chronometer', not 'chronograph'

    Indeed! I'd prefer a smooth dial, personally, but hey.

    I wanted to like it, but I just don't . It doesn't 'sing' to me in any way, and the fact that it's 5,000 (out of my budget) means I'll not have to wrestle with my conscience to change my mind.

    I dig it quite a bit actually, but I think I like the new Rolex Cellini even better.

    There are 8 stars on the watch, every star stands for 1 METAS-criterion.
