From the classic and the conscientious to the downright quirky: keep up with what's new and what's reinvented with Tatler's three-part roundup of highlights from the world of luxury watchmaking this year.
Omega has introduced a new material, Bronze Gold, which makes its debut this year in the Seamaster 300. The material is a gold-bronze hybrid alloy with 9-karat fineness and will acquire a patina over time, but without the characteristic green colouration of verdigris-oxidation that’s typical of “regular” bronze. It’s thus a nod to the marine environment that the Seamaster was conceived for, and also an elevated iteration of the brand’s original dive watches. This Seamaster 300 is a familiar classic, albeit one that’s been rendered in a new material with a much warmer hue.
