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.
