The case measures 39 mm Omega Globemaster Replica Watch in diameter and features primarily brushed surfaces, with chamfered and polished case edges on the flanks and lugs, both front and back. The bezel and crown are fluted and polished. Notably, the bezel on the steel model is made of tungsten carbide which is much harder than steel.
At first glance, one cannot mistake the strong resemblance to the Rolex Datejust or Day-Date lines. However, after closer inspection, there are a few details that distinguish it from the aforementioned Omega Globemaster Replica. Namely, the pie-pan dial, and the Master Co-Axial movement. The Globemaster is available in four case materials: stainless steel, SEDNA gold (Omega’s proprietary gold alloy), platinum or bi-metallic (two-tone).
Standard COSC-certified movements are always tested outside of the case, which is far less challenging that testing cased-up. On the surface, more rigorous testing is a good thing, however, the stipulation that the movement needs to be able to sustain exposure to 15,000 gauss, is clearly a requirement that is self-fulfilling for the only brand that can currently do this: Omega.
Powering the timepiece (depending on the metal) is either a caliber 8900 or 8901. Both are referred to as “Co-Axial Master Chronometers,” which is Omega’s new designation for watches that feature the fully anti-magnetic movement, Co-Axial escapement and the METAS certification, which is essentially a more advanced COSC-certification, with more stringent requirements, including testing done after being cased up.
The Omega Replica Watch movement is visible through a domed sapphire crystal caseback, with a medallion, made of the same metal as the case, set in the glass. Why Omega continues to make domed and box-type sapphire crystal caseback is beyond me, I have yet to hear one person who approves of this, in fact, I have heard numerous people ask why Omega does this, which makes the caseback thicker, and in turn less comfortable on the wrist.
