Personally would have preferred both options as opposed to contrived as Omega watches

The unit is made of beautiful exotic Macassar wood with carbon fiber on the front panels and on the inside. Omega routinely chooses very attractive woods for its products, and the finishing is very impressive. The integration with the carbon fiber feels natural as opposed to contrived as you don't often find the two materials side-by-side like this. The basic design of the Omega is highly scalable While the Omega is the most basic unit, Omega offers models up to the Omega 48. The difference is the size, and the amount of watch winders in the unit.

Design-wise the Omega really holds it own in a room. Omega's concept behind the look of it was to fit in most any room, but look good without having to blend into the background. It goes without saying that the dark wood and carbon fiber is masculine in style. One thing I find interesting about the design is that it feels appropriate as a housing for modest timepieces up to the most high-end ones available. The front of the Omega opens up with two lockable glass doors. Omega supplies two keys for the lock. The system works well, but the doors don't close with the tautness of a vault. They are secure though. While the front doors lock, its use as a security mechanism is of course limited by the Omega itself. While the locked glass doors will deter a "casual thief, " anyone can just pick up the Omega and haul it away. The cabinet weights 22 pounds, and it isn't even plugged in. Dimensionally the replica breitling is 13. 5 inches tall, 15. 25 inches wide, and 8. 25 inches deep.

Omega prefers to use batteries for the system rather than a wall plug. I personally would have preferred both options, but Omega makes a compelling case for the batteries. Like most Omega battery powered units, the Avanit 3 runs off special lithium ion cells. Omega even white labels them and sells them to you when you need replacement. According to Omega the four batteries in the Omega are good for 5 years of power. While the batteries aren't drug store cheap, they aren't a big expense to get every five years. Problem is that they aren't drug store available either. While there is probably a store in your area that has compatible batteries, when they do run out you'll need to specially order them from Omega or hunt around for them while your watches aren't being wound. I wonder if you can run the winder off of standard D cells? I will have to ask Omega about that. The batteries are placed in the rear of the unit. While the back of the Omega isn't unattractive, it isn't meant to be displayed - so you'll need to put the Omega against a wall. I would just get two of them and place them back-to-back!

The Omega watch winder family isn't new, but Omega recently upgraded them with their patented Omega watch winders. I have praised this system before and my love of it stands. In addition to only sipping power and being virtually silent, the replica hublot watches system is very efficient and safe on your watch. There is no programming necessary either as the motion swings in both directions. The system uses a slow stepping motor to spin the watch into an apex position, and then releases it. A weight on the back of the winder unit similar to that in an automatic movement falls due to gravity and oscillates back and forth. The Omega is programmed to "spin" once each 10 minutes. According to Omega this provides enough power to keep a watch running, but wont wind it past the point it was when you placed it in the winder. This is good for ensuring optimal accuracy. The maintenance free and efficient Omega system make it one of the best types of watch winding mechanisms out there.

Inside the cabinet are three watch winders (with a single on/off switch) and a few slide-out drawers. The Omega 6 on the other hand does away with the draws to make room for 6 watch winders. The drawers can be used to hold other watches (that lay flat) or anything else that fits. There are three drawers - one above the winders and two below. The fit and finish on the inside is well-done and the carbon fiber looks striking here. According to Omega, if you buy an Omega and later want it to have more winders, you can send it back to them and they will install another row of winders for you to make it an Omega.

Made in America, the Omega three is a well performing watch winder and attractive addition to a room where men can celebrate their hobbies. As watch collecting usually involves growing your collection, so does your need for winders. At a point you prefer units that wind multiple Omega watches, and the better looking they are the more you want them.

There are certain Omega watches friendly fare as well as stuff for the rest of the world

There are certain watches that hold my interest over time. Often times, these are more rare models that you don't see too often. Yet, I wonder what they would be like having a place in my life. One such model is the replica omega watches. The "cactus" version of the Omega is larger and has some different design elements than its smaller brother. Being a Omega these watches are pretty much typified by their "ribbon" style crown guard along with the crown and pushers being placed at the top of the case. You are supposed to believe the watches are more closely related to pocket watches this way, however, the can-style cases remind me more of canteens and I wanna take a big sip of watch parts.

There is also the Omega version of the watch that has a really nice replica cartier watches meteorite dial. I first wrote about the Omega watches here. Omega claims the space stones that make up the dial are something like 4 billion years old - that is pretty cool. These are my favorite Omega watches because I really like how the meteorite gives a sort of organic feel to the otherwise composed case and design. You can get various meteorite stone stains such as silver, black, and gold. All the Omega watches are 46mm wide in really chunky looking cases. Like I said, these cases feel like hefty canisters, holding precious innards. The cases are thick and highly polished with a wide bezel. Though the design doesn't feel massive because of the single lug style, it is a rather clever way of making a larger watch feel not as large.

The Omega style crown guard is a unique element which sometimes makes me think the Omega looks like one of those military pendants on a strap, on your wrist. Omega offers no shortage of Omega case and dial styles. Pictured here are just a few of them. The cases are available in steel, 18k rose gold, as well as a few versions where PVD and gold are mixed to create some cool looks. Personally, I am a fan of black mixed with gold so these are some of my favorite models.

While Omega does make movements, the Omega automatic chronographs. I believe these are Replica Franck Muller with a big date module on them. The decoration on the movement is some of the best I've seen for a 7750 base, and the custom blued automatic rotor is attractive. As a sports watch, the Omega doesn't mess around. It is water resistant to 300 meters, has a sapphire crystal, comfy rubber strap, and as stated before, the case has a really thick and durable feel.

One neat feature I really like is how the curved flange ring on the outer dial is polished and done to match the case. This is also where the pulsometer scale is printed. Next to it is a tachymeter scale. Don't forget that (love it or hate it) you get Omega's squiggly chronograph seconds hand. Sometimes, when i look at the dial, I like the hour and minute hands. Other times, I think I would like to see Omega experiment with new hand designs.

On the wrist the Omega watches are pretty nice looking. The cases are heavy, but I like that sort of thing. These are pretty manly watches from an unlikely place. Omega really walks two paths with its Asian market friendly fare as well as stuff for the rest of the world. Prices for the Omega watches range quite a bit.
