It’s safe to say when it comes to watch releases in 2022, the Omega x Swatch collaboration singlehandedly swept the watch world off its feet. There has beeen as spectacular, unexpected or downright ambitious in at least the few months preceding it (barring of course, and we’ll assume you’ve made your peace with it by now, the announcement of the 5711 being discontinued).
That Omega x Swatch collaboration is still lighting up backchannels within the watch industry where it is retailing second-hand for over 10 times its retail price – more in certain regions where demand is soaring.
Beyond that collaboration, Omega has released some outstanding novelties this year and the good news is that you can get your hands on them at the Dubai Mall.
It includes seven new models of the 45.5mm Seamaster Ultra Deep which is water-resistant up to 20,000 ft. Six of them are made from the proprietary O-MEGASTEEL material.
Omega Seamaster Ultra Deep
From tool watch to dress watch, the 2022 collection of the Seamaster Aqua Terra comes in two sizes (34mm and 38mm) and a range of dial shades including, blue, green, saffron and green, among others. The 34mm models have 18k white gold hands and indexes.
A 1952 launch, revamped for 2022 and now available at Dubai Mall, is the Constellation collection. The Constellation 41mm with ceramic bezel rings and dials in white, rhodium-grey, gradient-green and burgundy also have case options ranging from 18K yellow gold and stainless steel to 18K Sedna Gold.
Omega Constellation Aventurine
For smaller wrists, there are 12 new 29mm Constellation Aventurine pieces made from aventurine dials – each of them unique – and options for the bezels paved with diamonds. Omega chose the Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8700 or 8701 treatment for the all-gold models.
The Speedmaster ’57 collection is back as well this year and is one that is celebrating its 65th anniversary this year. It’s kitted with the manual-winding Omega caliber 9906, certified as a Master Chronometer by METAS. It has a co-axial escapement and boasts of a 60-hour power reserve.
The stainless steel case doesn’t feature crown guards and frames a sunray-brushed dial that is offered in variants of black, green, burgundy and blue. The tachymeter bezel meanwhile is laser engraved and coloured using laser technology too.
Omega Speedmaster ’57
One of the strongest releases from Omega this year though remains the Speedmaster Moonwatch Moonshine Gold, whose 2022 versions include one with a gold dial, black ceramic bezel ring and blackened subdials and indexes, and the other with a PVD green coated dial and a green ceramic bezel ring.

If that hasn’t got your attention, then maybe the fact that it is now powered by a Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 3861 is really all you need to know to seal the deal.

Reebok’s latest collection is pushing boundaries beyond the comfort zone

Reebok’s latest collection is pushing boundaries beyond the comfort zone

Fashion

IN PARTNERSHIP: When you’re pushed outside of your comfort zone, incredible things happen.
This is the mantra Reebok is embodying for the upcoming season with its latest collection inspired by the art of movement.
With yoga growing as a wellness practice in the Middle East, the athletics brand has launched its latest yoga collection ensuring seamless movement goes beyond each class.
As an activity to build muscle tone and strength, yoga comes with a host of uncomfortable positions which promotes overall relaxation in the long run. To champion this concept and showcase how wearers can find comfort with the apparel in the most uneasy yoga exercises, the brand launched a campaign surrounding the theme ‘uncomfortably comfortable’.

Without compromising on style, these activewear staples can seamlessly fit into any wardrobe. With a plethora of subtle prints and delicate details, wearers can incorporate the pieces for both fitness classes and everyday activities, including a post-workout lunch with friends.
The high-waisted leggings, t-shirts and supportive bras are designed with moisture-wicking fabrics that are soft to touch for long-lasting comfort and promote a feel-good factor.
As the foundation of any workout, opting for the right activewear is a crucial step for an impeccable fitness routine and is proven to inspire and motivate you just as much.

For the faces of the campaign, Reebok chose three UAE-based yogis Yassmine Elkholy, Merishka Naidoo and Sophia Seyerh, who have been long-time enthusiasts of this mindfulness practice to closely resonate with the theme.
To officially launch the collection in the UAE, Reebok MENA hosted a yoga retreat under the theme ‘Reconnect, Realign and Reaffirm’ in honour of International Yoga Day on June 21, 2022.
The latest collection can be purchased at the Reebok store in The Dubai Mall and The Galleria Al Maryah, Abu Dhabi. For more information visit @reebokmena on Instagram.
