Experience: Omega Hosts a Special Preview of their Baselworld 2014 Novelties in Partnership with WatchCollectingLifestyle in Chicago.

A few days ago, the Omega Boutique on Michigan Avenue here in Chicago, hosted a special preview of the Baselworld 2014 novelties in partnership with our publication. This wonderful evening included all the new watches presented at Baselworld 2014 presented earlier this year —with the exception of the Speedmaster 'Lunar Dust'— and their new line of NATO straps that will become available in the month of August across the Omega Boutique network. While we have seen the novelties multiple times, we have not played with the NATO straps enough. Fortunately, this time, we were able to see the NATO straps fitted on a few of the novelties as well as on other watches from the current collection. We even put a gorgeous Omega leather NATO strap on the new Omega Speedmaster Apollo 11 45th Anniversary that looked just amazing.

Along with some refreshing Negronis —signature drink for Watch Collecting Lifestyle featured here— and Taittinger Champagne, we also enjoyed some delicious Hors d'oeuvre that included Vietnamese spring rolls, pulled pork mini burgers and lobster rolls.

While all our guests mingled around the new timepieces, we enjoyed capturing the moment for our readers. A beautiful evening filled with great people, great watches and more of watch collecting and the good life.

Special thanks to our friends from Omega for partnering with us and throwing such a great preview event. To all of you that were able to attend our event, thank you for coming and we hope you liked the goodies from Omega and us.
