We thankfully live in a world were it is necessary to choose favorites to Omega watches

It is the end of the year and you people are entitled to your lists, round-ups, and best-ofs. I am not a man of superlatives - so please stop asking me what my favorite Omega watch brand, model, or Replica Omega Seamaster is. We thankfully live in a world were it is not necessary to choose favorites, and sampling is encouraged (my horological polyamory will continue unscathed). Having said that, I've chosen ten of the most desirable, interesting, or just plain cool Omega watches of 2011 covered here on life. Check them out below is no particular order:
Omega recently announced a new version of their watch that came out about two years ago. The great looking piece is probably one of my top pics from the brand at this time and now is featured in an even more sporty skin. This version is done in collection with the Omega. Beyond that i guess a new watch will be made?
The rear of the watch has "Volvo Ocean Race 2011-2012" engraved on the back. Omega is the officially timekeeper for the boat race events. In the race Omega is also the official sponsor of the Omega. Interesting that they sponsor the event and one of the Replica Tag Heuer Formula 1.
The titanium case and carbon fiber dial look good together and feel fitting with the high-end racing boats. These performance machines operate thanks to very capable sailors and seconds count when needed to start the race. While not a traditional regatta timer, the first 10 minutes of the chronograph counter are specially colored to help with calculating how much time before the race starts.
Interestingly enough the Omega is an around-the-world race. I am not sure exactly how that works out, but it is a pretty grueling event for the sailors (best to have a nice watch). Though of course the majority of these Replica Omega De Ville will go on the wrists of non-sailors who admire their work. The watch case is 45. 4mm wide and here in titanium. It has a sapphire crystal and is water resistant to 60 meters.
Through the rear of the watch you can see the very pretty in-house made Omega automatic movement. There are two hands in the upper chronograph register, which allows this to be a full 12 hour chronograph, but enjoy the good look of only two subdials. The movement has a power reserve of almost three days. The Omega watch comes attached to a black rubber strap (love that strong looking clasp).
