Planet OMEGA Exhibition in NYC

Nov 19, 2023,19:07 PM

Drove down to NYC yesterday morning to attend the event. However, the first priority was a visit to Culture Espresso!☕️

The exhibition was held at the Chelsea Factory:

Apologies in advance for not the best photos. Lighting conditions were not that great for taking photos:

Their Olympic Chronograph from the 1932 Los Angeles Summer Olympics:

The FOIS worn by astronaut Wally Schirra in 1959:

President John F. Kennedy’s Omega:

The first James Bond Seamaster 300M Diver worn by Pierce Bronson in 1995’s GoldenEye:

The Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M worn by Daniel Craig in 2006’s Casino Royale:

The NTTD Seamaster 300M Diver by Daniel Craig in 2021’s No Time to Die:

The ‘other’ 60th Anniversary Seamaster 300M Diver in 18K in Canopus Gold - I like my SS iteration much better! 😉

Overall, it was okay. I understand Omega would not want people “touching” the above pieces. But it would have been nice if they had another area or display cases set up to try on the current collection below:

The new Seamaster ProPlof 1200M:

The platinum Speedmaster Moonwatch Calibre 321:

Thanks for looking!🥂

Cheers, my friend!🥂

. . . and commentary, Mach. Coincidentally, Bill Sohne was also there (not sure which day) but missed the Ploprof. I'll share your pic with him. Best, Art

A very nice visit, thanks for sharing Mark!

I reserved a spot last week and 24 hours before the reserved spot I got an email that my spot got canceled due to technical issues!

I guess they found out that I’m a Rolex guy ))) Hope you enjoyed, thanks for the tour!🥂

Unfortunate, but to be honest, most of the exhibited pieces I’ve seen years ago at the opening of the 5th Ave. Boutique.

I was more interested in the way they organized the expo, and the ambiance, to which I got my answer )) The new models will be available for viewing at the boutique, I’m sure, but after all the recent fiascos around the brand I’m not really interested in ... 

It’s unfortunate to hear these statements!

I hope someone from Omega is paying attention to the various forums. You are not the only one! Have a Happy Thanksgiving, my friend!
