Invest in precious moments now, the clock is ticking away!
My fetish for watches is very well known, by now, as is my curiosity for anything new and exciting. So, for me, visiting the revamped Omega boutique to check out their new line of impeccable timepieces, Seamaster Planet Ocean, was a double treat.
And of course, I knew exactly what to wear to the occasion:
· A black and white dotted tie is one of this season’s favorites and it has the amazing ability to match nearly everything. But when I wore it underneath this chalk-patterned jacket, a whole new definition of style came to mind. Go ahead, play with patterns, you never know what will happen!
· A crisp white shirt is all you need as your canvas for any combination your imagination comes up with.
· One more thing about the outfit, this season dare to go extra slim, as this is the must fit of the moment.
About the watches and Omega:
The collection was beautiful, but I really got hooked on the two Master Chronometers, from the new Seamaster Planet Ocean Collection. Knowing there is such history behind the brand makes them even more desirable… for a little bit of story telling, OMEGA was founded in 1848, when Louis Brandt created his first assembly workshop of pocket watches in La Chaux-de-Fonds of Switzerland, the famous luxury watch manufacturing house, has always been driven by its pioneering spirit.
Presenting the world’s first divers’ watch in the early ‘30s, holding the world’s most accuracy record a few years afterwards -which the Brand holds until today- and playing a significant rolein all six lunar landings- with the OMEGA Speedmaster Professional chronograph becoming the first watch ever worn on the Moon-, Omega is an undisputed timepiece leader. Since 1932,when Omega timed the Olympic Games for the first time, many of the most important sports events have been timed by this prestigious Swiss luxury watchmaker.
