Event Report: Fratello Watches x OMEGA Novelty Event 2014

For a small group of our readers, we co-organized a dinner at the Tourbillon Boutique in Amsterdam to have a look at Omega’s novelties. Watches that were introduced during BaselWorld, could now been seen, tried and discussed with fellow enthusiasts and collectors. With approximately 30 people we enjoyed a great three course dinner in the beautiful Tourbillon Boutique in the PC Hooftstraat in Amsterdam. The PC Hooftstraat is probably the most famous shopping street in The Netherlands, where a number of high-end brands are located.

There was an opportunity to see the new Omega Speedmaster Mark II models, Seamaster 300, De Ville Trésor and the new Speedmaster X-33 ‘SkyWalker’ amongst some other models. First presented in display cases but they quickly appeared on the dining table as well, so the guests could experience them from up close. It was an amazing evening with guests with a passion for watches. Lively discussions about both new Omega watches and those from the past. Guests also brought their own precious pieces to the table. From vintage Speedmasters and a rare Omega Moon phase watch from the 1940s to modern Seamaster Planet Ocean watches.

Bert took a number of photos to give you an impression of the Omega Novelty Event that we held at the Tourbillon Boutique. The Tourbillon Boutique is owned by the Swatch Group and carries a number of brands from that group. Although the name might give you the impression that those are the type of watches you are going to find there (which is true to a certain extent), you will also find your standard Speedmaster Professional 3570.50 or Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon there. An interesting concept with 19 boutiques all over the World.

      Thanks Erwin,

      It was a pleasure meeting you and talking about watches! The Mark II certainly is a beauty. Which one would you prefer, the black dial or the racing dial?

    Looked like everyone had a really good time. The new Master Co-Axial AT with the orange second hand and brown strap looks really sharp. The vintage B&M looks amazing as well – who owned that one?

    1. Robert-Jan Broer Reply

      Thanks for your comment. I actually noticed the B&M only later on when writing this article, so I have to ask around.

    Hij RJ,

    Also on behalf of Mike I would like to thank you very much for the invitation to this great evening.

    Good food, good wine, good company of fellow watch fanatics and above all: superb watches from Omega!

    What more could a man wish for? Nada!

    Hi RJ!

    I am almost on the Dark Side, but first got rid of the Heavy Side. Thanks to your
    review on the new Sea Dweller 4000 and thanks to the fact that I have really liked
    the impressive technology, but disliked the fact that I have always felt the bulk on
    my wirst wearing my Deepsea, I have traded it in at Watch-Site last Saturday. Just
    after 7 months of ownership. I had some thorough conversations with Mike about
    keeping a watch that I wasn’t 100% satisfied with and finally I realized that the SD 4000
    was more than enough for a desk diver like myself and that the SD was just the perfect watch
    for me. Comfortable, nice 40mm, sleek yet technically advanced. So I tied the knot,

    As soon as Mike has a DSOTM available, I will be interested though. Although I understand
    that they are hard to get at the moment and I doubt whether that will change in the near future!
