Omega is one of the most prestigious watch brands in the world, ticking all the boxes when it comes to heritage, innovative technology, renowned design, and cultural significance.

From making the first watch on the Moon; to timekeeping the Olympics and creating icons such as the Speedmaster, Seamaster, and Railmaster – Omega has earned its rock-star status in the watch world.

It’s incredible that Omega offers timepieces at friendlier price points. Below, we give you our 5 favorite Omega watches that can be had for less than $5000.

Topping the list is none other than Omega’s most famous creation – the Omega Speedmaster. It’s best known as the official watch of NASA, but the appeal of the Speedmaster lies in its timeless design and reliable performance.

While vintage Omegas may be out of the price range, the classic yet contemporary 3570.50 meets the most traditional configuration of the MoonWatch. There’s the beautiful Hesalite crystal, stainless steel case back and dial configuration stay true to the original MoonWatch features. Super-Luminova markers and hands give a luminous glow in the dark.

It’s also powered by the famous Calibre 1861 movement – a descendant of the calibre that powered the Speedy on the moon.

The Omega Seamaster collection has been around since 1948, with the goal of creating water resistant watches that are friendly for everyday wear.

In 1993, Omega released the Seamaster 300M Diver. It put the Seamaster on the map for younger audiences and created a cultural phenomenon when it was worn by Pierce Brosnan in the 1995 James Bond film, GoldenEye.

Today, this emblematic watch with a scalloped bezel, a blue bezel and wave pattern dial and a helium escape valve at 10 o’clock, is arguably the most recognizable Seamaster model there is.

In 2005, Omega introduced the Seamaster Planet Ocean – a watch with even greater water resistance and bolder designs.

Coming in a thick, chunky case that one simply can’t miss, the Planet Ocean also boasts of the following features: 600M water resistance, a helium escape valve, and as of 2014, a Master Chronometer movement. The movement passes eight tests by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS) and is resistant to magnetic fields of up to 15,000 gauss.

Super-Luminova coating on the indexes and hands make them glow in the dark for enhanced visibility in underwater or low-light conditions. Current production models of the Planet Ocean also come equipped with ceramic bezels for greater resistance to fading and scratches.

The original Railmaster was introduced in 1957 as a practical yet elegant watch designed for people who worked close to electrical fields. This updated model was launched in time for the 60th anniversary of the Railmaster in 2017.

It captures the spirit of the vintage Railmaster with its no nonsense steel construction and Super-Luminova that evokes the look of aged radium.

Inside, however, everything is modern – it is powered by the Calibre 8806, a time-only movement that is Master Chronometer certified, which means it can handle up to 15,000 Gauss of magnetism and is regulated to +4 seconds per day.

The Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra is one of the newer collections from Omega launched in 2003. It draws inspiration from early Omega Seamaster watches, which combine water resistant abilities with versatile, casual-to-dress looks.

The Aqua Terra is characterized by its smooth case and lack of a rotating bezel, which makes it look sophisticated while still decidedly sporty. It evokes the Seamaster’s ocean spirit through its teak wood pattern dial, which is inspired by the floors of yachts. This nod to the nautical life is further enhanced by its 150m water resistance.

The Aqua Terra today comes in a vast array of sizes and materials, and with complications like date, GMT and annual calendar.
