This wiki has been updated 17 times since it was first published in July of 2018. These Omega watches for men come to you from a company that earned its reputation by outfitting astronauts with the timepieces they wore on the moon. In more recent years, the likes of James Bond revived widespread consumer interest in the brand. We've included a variety of their finest models made for diving, racing, and more, ranked by style, accuracy, and durability.

There's no end to the high-quality models on offer from this company, but scrutinizing our last list I didn't feel it encompassed the breadth of what they're capable of. Take the Seamaster Professional Diver 300 and the Seamaster Analog Automatic from our previous ranking, for example. These are remarkably similar in form, with not much more than the chronograph separating them. I replaced them with the Specialties Seamaster Limited Edition ETNZ and the Seamaster Diver 300 respectively, the former of which offers a titanium construction and a regatta timer on top of its chronograph, and the latter of which takes the iconic design of their 300-meter diver and surrounds it with a black ceramic case.
Our previous Moonwatch options deserved a bit of an upgrade, as well. The Speedmaster Mechanical has remained despite what are sure to be calls for us to replace it with one of the recently released 321-movement throwbacks, but in my opinion, if you want the 321, you can go buy a dot-over-90 vintage model for nearly the same price. We did get rid of the Speedmaster Moonwatch that had a leather strap and a doubled-up minute/hour chrono sub-dial, as it was really not much more than a traditional Speedy that was harder to read. That got replaced by one of the few quartz luxury watches that's actually worth its price tag, the Skywalker X-33 Solar Impulse.
Seamaster 007 Edition Designed with the help of James Bond actor Daniel Craig, this update to a long line of divers boasts a few outstanding features, like faded lume in the hands and hour markers, as well as the "broad arrow" insignia historically tied to the British navy. It boasts a mech bracelet that's flexible and lightweight, and it comes in a special protective pouch you can use for travel. omegawatches.com
Olympic Official Timekeeper Limited Edition Having owned the contract to time all events at every Winter and Summer Olympics since 1932, the company released this commemorative set of five pieces, each colored to match the five rings of the Olympic logo. The transparent back of each boasts a ring that lists every city in which the games have been held, and the dial is fashioned to resemble the stopwatches used to time them, with a 60-minute track rather than a conventional 12-hour confinguration. omegawatches.com
Speedmaster Blue Side Of The Moon Lots of timepieces on the market offer references to the heavens, with meticulously painted dials and ornate moon phases, but this model goes a step further by manufacturing a dial out of what's known as aventurine glass. Its principal visual effect — known as aventurescence — has all the depth and shimmer of a sky-full of stars without making the watch look blinged out or gaudy. It's an effect that really has to be seen in person to be appreciated, and it fits beautifully with the company's long history of spacefaring equipment. omegawatches.com
