Omega never fails to deliver on its clientele’s expectations. In the Baselworld 2011, one of its creations, the Omega Hour Vision Blue, is once again a standout. It is definitely a cool watch that integrates the highly rated 8500 movement as well as sapphire “sides”. The Hour Vision watch from the DeVille collection is a special timepiece; it also supports ORBIS International’s fight against blindness. As if all these aren’t cool enough, Daniel Craig is also involved in the campaign.
The concept of this piece takes inspiration from a collection in 1999 when the brand first introduced the Co-Axial range of timepieces. But the main root of this design comes from the 50s and 60s Constellation models. Omega simple reintroduced them in the DeVille collection.
Measuring 41mm in diameter, the blue watch immediately catches onlooker attention with the beauty of its design. The movement integrated within the timepiece also allows frequent travelers to set the hour hand independently. One downside is that it doesn’t have a reference time zone feature which would make things even more convenient for travelers.
This piece has sun-brushed finish and hands that are made of 18k white gold. The price of the Omega Hour Vision is yet to be announced.
