Captured, Omega watches welcomed Eddie Redmayne into its elite club of Hollywood ambassadors, joining forces with megastars George Clooney and Nicole Kidman. Putting on Omega’s new Globemaster, Redmayne’s watch includes a medallion by having an observatory around the caseback – a detail his character within the Theory of all things might have appreciated. And who could forget Redmayne’s multi-award-winning role as Stephen Hawking? The Full was impressed, so much in fact the gifted British actor was hired as Officer of the very most Excellent Order from the British Empire (OBE) throughout the Queen’s Birthday Honors.
The handsome 39mm Omega watch includes a distinguished presence featuring a fluted bezel as well as the legendary cake-pan dial – which appears like an upside-lower baking pan – first introduced around the Constellation types of 1952. Redmayne is generally captured pics of putting on the stainless model having a sun-blown blue dial, although you will find versions in gold and mixtures of gold and stainless.
Like every good actor, the repository of talent lies underneath the surface and also the Globemaster is really Omega’s innovative mechanical movement. It’s also the world’s first Master Chronometer, fortunate with a brand new certification process produced by Omega watches and authorized by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS). Exceeding expectations past the traditional parameters set by COSC chronometry tests, the brand new eight-test process measures the truth and gratification of watches as well as their actions, both throughout after contact with magnetic fields of 15,000 gauss. When they pass, they’re granted with Master Chronometer status – a brand new standard in the market that any brand can submit its watches but that very few brands will have the ability to aspire.
Outfitted with Omega’s 8900 automatic movement with Co-Axial escapement (another formidable Omega breakthrough of 1999 – the very first significant watch escapement to become invented within the last 250 years) along with a significant 60-hour energy reserve, the Globemaster has both COSC chronometry status and also the new METAS Master Chronometer seal because of its resilience to magnetic fields.
It’s unlikely that Eddie Redmayne is going to be putting on his Globemaster throughout his next film, The Danish Girl, but look out for his Omega watch at next year’s honors events.
