Omega Relaunches the Ladymatic

in New Releases | Sunday, November 7. 2010

Luxury timepiece maker Omega has recently re-introduced its Ladymatic collection of watches. The line was originally launched back in 1955 as part of the brands De Ville collection. The Ladymatic was one of Omega's first self-winding watches that was designed especially for women, and it featured the smallest automatic movement the brand had ever made. The launch celebration was held at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Beijing and was attending by the Oscar-winning actress and brand ambassador, Nicole Kidman.

The Omega De Ville Ladymatic timepiece has a round 34 millimeter wave pattern case crafted in 18 carat red gold, yellow gold or stainless steel with a polished or a snow-set diamond-studded bezel. The polished screw-in crown is encrusted with an Omega Cut diamond or a polished Omega logo on the non-diamond version. The case-back is polished and fitted with a see-through case-back crafted from sapphire crystal, displaying the stunning movement. The dial is available in extra-white mother-of-pearl or lacquered black, each with a Supernova pattern. The dial features either 11 diamond indexes facetted in 18 carat gold mounts or a version with no hour-markers.

The timepiece is powered by the brands calibre 8520/8521 movement which incorporates a Co-Axial escapement. This caliber features the company’s exclusive Si 14 silicon balance spring which increases the level of its resistance to external shocks and environmental disturbances. The movement powers 4 functions, hours, minutes, seconds, and date. The hours, minutes and seconds are indicated by polished alpha-shaped hands treated with Super-LumiNova for heightened readability. The date indication is located in an exhibition window at 3 o’clock. An impressive 27 variations will be available.
