The idyllic fairytale landscape supplied by winter in Switzerland is a real-life correlation to the most magical of holiday scenarios: whorls of snow settling into drifted banks, herds of chestnut reindeer from which a potential Rudolph may emerge, cozy ski chalets and timeless villages bedecked in red and green. The Swiss could even be said to be the original progenitors of all modern Christmas motifs.
With Switzerland as its home country, the legendary watch brand OMEGA is more than prepared to channel the magic of Christmas. This season, three stand-out watches are landing our wish lists, courtesy of OMEGA, just in time for the holidays. Get to know what makes them tick, and get a closer look at three of this season’s most covetable timepieces.
