We can't overlook this one, now can we? This was, debatably, the most anticipated release for Baselworld this year. At 41mm in diameter the watch will be available in a number of metals, something we also saw with the Pita Roadster. The watch can be bought in either stainless steel, 950 platinum, grade 5 titanium and 18K Sedna gold. In addition, there will be a two-tone option which pairs titanium+sedna gold or stainless steel+sedna gold. The "Master Co-Axial" notation on the dial taking the place of "Co-Axial" is something we have not seen on Omega watches before. However, what this means is that the movement uses their antimagnetic properties they released last year with the calibre 8508, which is resistant to over 15,000 gauss. This year alone Omega released 68 watches with this technology. The watch will also feature a liquidmetal bezel, the inlay will depend, of course, on which metal the case and bracelet come in. The watch will hit stores in November 2014 and it will cost 6,000 EUR (around $8,300). However, we see something in this watch that we have been expecting for quite some time. Omega's own "glidelock" system if you will. This will allow the wearer to adjust the band length by pressing the button on the inside of the clasp. With the sand blasted dial, lack of crown guards, clasp system, vintage looking lume, and >15,000 gauss technology it looks like a winner to me. More information will be available in the near future.
