Get Vintage Charm With OMEGA Watches

Like most classic wristwatch brands, OMEGA tends to stick to tried and tested lines. While new models are regularly launched, they usually fall into one of the brand's famous categories such as:
- The Speedmaster. This is by far the most famous OMEGA watch, known as the astronaut's choice. Buzz Aldrin wore his on the moon in 1969, and it's famous for its precision, even under extreme conditions - like a trip to space.
- The Seamaster. Be careful here, as OMEGA has released two very different styles of watch under this name: A dress watch and a diving watch. Seamasters made in recent years are more likely to be diving watches and have excellent waterproofing.
- The Constellations. These are OMEGA's dress watches. Less bulky than Speedmasters or Seamasters, they usually have a simple leather strap.
- The DeVilles. These are serious collectors' watches, inspired by vintage Americana. These are the most fashion-forward OMEGA watches, with unusual, statement-making details and eye-catching designs.
Thanks to the astronauts, OMEGA men's watches have been well-known for decades. However, the line also produces luxury women's watches. In particular, the Constellation line features ladies' watches. Many of these have truly luxurious features, such as diamond detailing, making them a powerful investment.Are used OMEGA watches a good buy?
Yes. Vintage OMEGA watches are much sought after by collectors, especially if they date back to the 1960s or 1970s. For a cheaper alternative, look for models from the 1980s or 1990s, which are very similar but usually cost less. If you want to take care of your investment, be sure to get an OMEGA with the correct paperwork certifying its authenticity. The quality workmanship of an OMEGA means it should still be going strong decades after manufacture.Which OMEGA watch is ideal for you?
It depends on your lifestyle, and the type of clothes you generally wear. Speedmaster and Seamaster watches go better with smart-casual clothes, while Constellation or DeVille watches are ideal for formal occasions. Think carefully before you purchase an OMEGA. Apart from collectors, most people will probably only ever own one of these luxury timepieces, so be sure to get one that you like.
