We have an incredible selection of pre-owned Omega watches and we’re sure to have something you love. To help you choose, we’ve created this quick guide that breaks down some of Omega’s best models that fit different styles, hobbies, and personalities.

Read on to learn more about some of the Omega models you can find in our inventory, and don’t hesitate to reach out and speak to our team if you have any questions or need help picking out a watch.

Daily Wear at the Office: The Constellation

If you’re looking for a great all-around Omega that can be your daily driver at the office, go with the Constellation. This watch was the first mass-produced chronometer for Omega and it continues to be a fan-favourite pick thanks to its classic look and variety of styles. 

The core design includes four claws and the Geneva Observatory medallion on the back of the case. The Constellation looks great with just about everything, so you really can’t go wrong with this one.

The dial design is elaborate while also being subtle. It also comes with a robust 43mm case, giving it some size and heft on the wrist. While the watch is functional, it also has a classic elegance that makes it a versatile watch to wear for most occasions.

Motorsports and Racing: The Speedmaster Schumacher

If you want to go with one of Omega’s most famous and loved watches, you could go with the Omega Speedmaster. The Speedmaster is the perfect timepiece for those who enjoy the world of motorsports and racing. 

The sporty style looks great and the Schumacher, with its striking yellow dial, adds even more sporty style to the mix. The Schumacher was made after racing legend Michael Schumacher became an Omega ambassador, so motorsports are fully integrated into the DNA of this timepiece. In short, if you’re looking for a sporty Omega, it doesn’t get much better than this.

Since it’s a Seamaster, you can also count on this watch to have 150 metres of water resistance, making it great for diving as well. No matter where you go in the world, you’ll know the time – so this is also a great watch for those who love to travel the globe.

In addition to being the first luxury watch company to put a watch on the moon, Omega’s other claim to fame is being the official timekeeper of the Olympic Games. Omega also makes sure to commemorate this honour with special editions of the Speedmaster, including the limited edition Omega Speedmaster Tokyo 2020. 

These watches were released in five different dial colours to represent each of the Olympic rings, and they also add stop-watch functionality with a chronograph. Finally, the Tokyo 2020 logo stamped on the back adds a unique design element that you can’t get on other watches. 

Aviation and Aeronautics: The Speedmaster Moonwatch Snoopy Edition

As the first watch on the moon, Speedmaster also honours its continued use by NASA astronauts through special editions like the Moonwatch Snoopy Edition. The Speedmaster Snoopy features a chronograph and a classic design, along with a unique caseback that features the beloved cartoon mascot Snoopy riding a shuttle around the moon, with the Earth in the background. 

Fans of aviation, aeronautics, and Omega’s lunar history will love this timepiece.

Adventure and Heroism: The Seamaster James Bond 50th

Finally, we have the Seamaster James Bond 50th. This special edition watch checks a lot of boxes. It’s a great watch for people who want a stylish timepiece and it’s also perfect for movie (or book) buffs who love the debonair spy James Bond. The watch was made to commemorate 50 years of James Bond and it features a black dial with the 007 logo, a date window, and a rotating bezel with a helium escape valve. The case back has a gun-barrel design, mimicking the iconic James Bond opening.
