Not sure if anyone saw these or not, but Omega finally announced their new watches.

https://www.omegawatches.com/en-us/stor ... eview-2019

I really liked the silver dial speedy with the moonphase but then realized it's platinum and costs $54K. The white diver looks good as well as the ceramic case version. The new orange ceramic bezels on the Planet Oceans looks interesting and I'd be curious how they'll look in real life. Overall, nothing that I would buy personally.

I saw a few of those the other day, and I absolutely LOVE the AT Worldtimer in steel. I think it's a fantastic looking piece and a great price too for what it is.

I don't mind the Seamaster Diver 300 Chrono, although I must be honest I still prefer the 3-hander.

It's good to see an orange ceramic bezel (given the now "historic" use of orange on the PO), but I'd like to see it paired with a black dial. Given Omega's love of producing multiple versions of everything, then I'm sure that colour combo will come.

I hadn't seen the new Speedies until this link, but the multi-coloured stuff really doesn't really appeal to me.

The WT looks nice, but that’s where it ends for me. Far too much separation between the cities ring and the 24-hour ring, no DST indicators — not well-conceived on a practical level.

I think the DeVille line is well worth a second look.

Meh, nothing in particular jumps off the page at me. A lot of things are cool components but not complete packages for me. Like the idea of the ceramic orange bezel but need to see the shade in real life and not on a white dial. Like the platinum moonphase colors but not the price. Nothing there that makes me want to spend my money.

The PO with the orange bezel would look interesting on either the black dial or even the grey dial from the titanium version.
