Most Expensive Omega Watches

Omega is renowned as a Swiss watchmaker and has been making watches since 1848. You are probably familiar with their more famous timepieces like the Omega Speedmaster or Seamaster, and are aware of how expensive they are.

However, in the world of luxury watches, Omega watches are typically not that expensive. Sure, their standard models cost thousands of dollars or more, but rarely tens of thousands.

There are some of their rarer models and pieces that are limited editions that are sold for insane prices. And in this article, I want explore some of those for your viewing pleasure!

Speedmaster Anniversary Series Moonwatch (Ref: 310.60.42.50.99.001)

Ok, let’s get a little bit crazy with Omega here and take a peek at one of the recent 50th Anniversary editions – Ref 310.60.42.50.99.001.

How much is it worth – retail? Over $36,000!

So, why is it worth so much? First of all, it is a limited edition. With only 1014 pieces produced.

And the materials are second to none, with the majority of the watch using Omega’s own 18K Moonshine™ gold. It contains additional palladium to fight the tendency of gold to lose its color over time. They have used it in the bracelet, case, and on the stunning dial.

The bezel is not to ignore either with its burgundy ceramic color with a font in Ceragold.

The overall dial and bezel design are very much in line with the original Moonwatch worn on Apollo, but with a few modernizations.

Omega Speedmaster Anniversary Moonwatch Case Back

The case back is equally breathtaking with a peek into the inner workings of Omega’s own 3861 movement. It is a certified Master Chronometer movement that has passed the grueling 8 tests required.

Around the edges of the case back you also have some commemorative engravings as well as a small map of the world. And the number of the limited edition you have, out of 1014. However, the showstopper is the view of the movement in all its glory!

Planet Ocean 600m Co‑axial Master Chronometer GMT (Ref: 215.92.46.22.03.001)

If you are into deep diver watches this version of the Omega Seamaster is absolutely killer! Not only is it rated to 600m, yes 600! But it is full of other surprises as well.

Starting with the case, with is made from blue ceramic. The bezel is also. Around the edge you will find the standard crown, but also a helium release valve to help it go so deep.

The dial is a matching blue with stunning orange accents and applied hour markers in 18K white gold with a white Super-LumiNova coating. So too are the hands, which there are four of – because after all, this is a GMT watch that keeps track of two time-zones!

The movement inside is an in-house Omega Master Chronometer calibre 8906. Yes, another certified Chronometer. One of the reasons this watch is over $10k!

It is also magnetic resistant to 15,000 gauss, which is quite rare, and you can get a good look at it through the transparent case back.

There you will see the stunning finish with rhodium-plated rotor and bridges with arabesque Geneva waves. It is self-winding, of course, and has 60 hours of power reserve. It also has a patented ceramic Naiad Lock to keep the wording in position around the case back.

Constellation Co‑axial Master Chronometer (Ref: 131.55.29.20.53.003)

Luxury is the name of the game with the Omega Constellation collection and this particular model is perhaps one of the most expensive.

When it comes to price, materials always make the difference, and in this case that is no different. The case and bracelet are both made from 18K Sedna™ gold. And the bezel is studded with diamonds, both top, and bottom.

But it does not stop there, as you inspect the dial more closely you will see blue aventurine glass with diamond hour markers. Diamonds are used as hour markers and are encased similarly in 18K Sedna™ gold. And it is all topped by a domed, anti-reflective coated sapphire crystal. Of course!

Omega calibre 8701

The Omega in-house movement is nothing to scoff at either. They have used the calibre 8701, which like the Seamaster above is magnetic resistant and a Master Chronometer. It comes with 50 hours of power reserve, enough to see you through 2 days.

Omega loves to display these masterpieces through a transparent case back where you can see the gold rotor at work.
