feminine grace and elegance in another era
The OMEGA Ladymatic reintroduces a name from the storied brand’s illustrious past. Originally launched in 1955 and continuing for the better part of a generation, the Ladymatic wristwatch line defined feminine grace and elegance in another era. It was one of the brand’s first self-winding watches to be designed especially for women and it featured the smallest automatic movement OMEGA had ever made.
OMEGA has revived the legendary name with a family of watches whose design originality and Co-Axial innovation combine to give an entirely new meaning to Ladymatic. These are timepieces that have been created to address women’s desire to own wristwatches that make profound fashion statements but which are also equipped with the best series-production mechanical watch movements in the world.
The product line
The watches in the new Ladymatic line feature polished 34 mm cases with a decorated with a unique wave pattern around their outside perimeter which is separated from the inner case body by a distinctive ceramic ring. The cases are crafted in 18 Ct red or yellow gold or in stainless steel. The inner case body for the gold models is made of titanium; the stainless steel Ladymatics have stainless steel inner case bodies.
The Ladymatic watches are offered with a choice of polished or snow-set diamond-paved bezels. The polished caseback has a sapphire crystal that reveals the movement that powers the watch.
The stunning face of the Ladymatic is highlighted by a swirling pattern emanating from the centre of the dial which reflects the waves. The mother-of-pearl or lacquered black dials match the colour of the striking ceramic ring. The dials are available either with 11 diamond indexes in facetted 18 Ct gold mounts or in understated elegant simplicity with no hour markers. There is a diamond-polished date window at the 3 o’clock position. The polished alpha-shaped hands have been crafted from 18 Ct gold and are treated with white Super-LumiNova, making them readable in any lighting conditions.
The OMEGA Ladymatic watches are presented either with bracelets in metals matching their cases or on alligator leather straps in mother-of-pearl white or brilliant black.
The new OMEGA Ladymatic Collection draws certain influences from its namesake: like the original Ladymatic watches, the line perfectly blends graceful, timeless design and OMEGA’s groundbreaking technology. The new collection, with its Co-Axial technology and bold fashion features, takes the best elements of an earlier era and introduces them, completely updated and upgraded, to discriminating women in a new century.
The movement driving the Ladymatic watches is the OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 8520/8521. At its heart is the Co-Axial escapement, the component that in 1999 signalled a revolution in how mechanical wristwatches are made. Each movement is equipped with OMEGA’s exclusive Si 14 silicon balance spring, an innovation that makes it more resistant to external shocks and environmental disturbances.
Each watch in the OMEGA Ladymatic collection is an officially certified chronometer, an objective testimony to their outstanding timekeeping performance.
4 years warranty
The stability and reliability delivered by the combination of the best women's mechanical watch movement in the world and the silicon balance spring means that each OMEGA Ladymatic comes with a four-year warranty.
