The Ladymatic for the 21st Century

Luxury watchmakers Omega have reintroduced the classic Ladymatic, an industry classic originally launched in 1955. For generations, the Ladymatic, one of the first self-winding timepieces specifically designed for women, defined feminine grace and elegance.

Now, Omega has introduced a new family of watches bearing the same name and proud history as the classic model.  At the heart of the new Ladymatic is the co-axial calibre 8520/8521, equipped with Omega’s proprietary Si 14 silicon balance spring, an innovation which makes the timepiece resistant to external shocks and environmental disturbances. The interior movements are visible through the sapphire crystal on the watches’ polished caseback.

The new Ladymatic watches feature a polished 34 mm-diameter case with a unique wave pattern and a distinctive ceramic ring. There are three options available for the case material; 18 carat red or yellow gold, or a sleek stainless steel version. The inner case body of the gold models is comprised of titanium, while the stainless steel models equally feature stainless steel inner case bodies. A dusting of either polished or snow-set diamond-paved bezels makes these watches true standouts.

The dial is available with either 11 diamond indexes in 18 carat gold mounts or a more simple take, without hour markers. A diamond-polished date window sits at the 3 o’clock position. The polished 18 carat alpha-shaped hands have been treated with white Super-LumiNova for improved readability. Finally, the strap can either match the case material (red or yellow gold, or stainless steel) or the wearer can choose an alligator leather strap in mother-of-pearl white or brilliant black.
