Omega Is Beautiful Both Inside And Outside New Work Preview Tour

Continuing the glorious history of the top Swiss watch brands, OMEGA will launch a number of brand-new works that will impress the world. The most proud of these are two pioneering “inside and outside beauty” innovations that have brought contemporary watchmaking technology to a new level, and OMEGA’s fascinating commemorative watch for the Orbis Flying Eye Hospital.

 OMEGA successfully subverted the centuries-old limitations of watches that could not be antimagnetic, launched the new ‘Antimagnetic Coaxial Escapement 8508 Movement’, the Aqua Terra series of hippocampus, allowing this most representative high performance sports watch to overcome In view of the problem that watches are easily affected by magnetism, the accuracy and durability of watches are raised to a new level, and a brand new page is written for the history of contemporary watches.

 Secondly, OMEGA is not only in the ultra-miniature world of watches, but also constantly innovates. In the case material of the watch, it is completely free from the constraints of traditional materials. It is the scale of aerospace technology and brings together the world’s top metallurgical scientists. , Together to create an unprecedented new material-Sedna Gold! This metal, which was re-smelted from scratch by OMEGA, was also first used in the new Constellation Sedna Limited Watch in 2013, allowing the world to see the extraordinary elegance of this beautiful precious metal.

 This year, we have always been keen on public welfare and long-term sponsored OMEGA of the International Orbis Flying Eye Hospital. We have also designed a constellation series Orbis commemorative watch with a unique night sky blue surface and inlaid with beautiful stars. This combination of perfect craftsmanship, extraordinary kindness, and elegant jewellery watch aesthetics is believed to be a very attractive highlight of Baselworld 2013.

Rewrite the history of irreversible clocks
The first antimagnetic movement in history, ‘8508 coaxial escapement antimagnetic movement’, is launched

 Magnetic force has always been the most difficult to overcome in the watch manufacturing process, and everyone hopes to successfully overcome it. And in January 2013, OMEGA grandly released a truly antimagnetic timepiece in the Cité du Temps in Geneva, ‘OMEGA Aquamar 8508 coaxial escapement antimagnetic watch’, which can withstand more than The magnetic field of 1.5 Tesla (15,000 Gauss) surpasses the antimagnetic level of any watch in the past, and perfectly solves the problems that have troubled watchmakers for centuries!

 OMEGA combines product R & D department, ETA R & D department, and ETA Tribology and Materials Science with many engineers. After many years of repeated experiments and research, the entire team has finally created a non-traditional magnetic shield, the first use of iron-free materials The manufactured movement allows the OMEGA Aqua Terra 8508 coaxial escapement antimagnetic watch to continue to operate in a higher magnetic environment (15,000 Gauss). Experiments have shown that even if exposed to this high magnetic environment, it still has As precise as ever.

 And this epoch-making new magnetic core, currently has several global patents pending. When it comes to the new 8508 coaxial escapement anti-magnetic movement that goes beyond the previous anti-magnetic method, we must not mention the traditional method, but only focus on the interior design of the case that reduces the magnetic effect. The shortcomings of traditional methods are not only unable to deal with the problem of increasing magnetic force in specific environments (such as below sea level), but also from the aesthetic point of view, it will obscure the screen of the movement and expose traditional mechanical watches exposed to high magnetic environments. Loss of accuracy, magnetic problems occur, and the accuracy of the watch is compromised.

 The 8508 coaxial escapement antimagnetic movement used in the OMEGA Aquamar 8508 coaxial escapement antimagnetic watch is undoubtedly an important milestone in the history of contemporary watchmaking, and it has made OMEGA rewrite the antimagnetic history of advanced watches in one fell swoop. OMEGA expects to launch this technology and the brand-new ‘OMEGA Sea Terra Aqua Terra 8508 Co-Axial Antimagnetic Watch’ at the Basel Watch Fair 2013. The model is also planned to be launched in 2013.

Degrees, giving OMEGA watches an amazingly beautiful look!

 OMEGA puts the strength of the entire group, betting on an amazing budget, convening a team of the world’s top metallurgists and scientists to create this kind of Sedna Gold that is completely different from any precious metal in the past in an exclusive smelting method. It is named Sedna because Neptune has a Sedna outside of Neptune that is considered by the modern astronomers to be the tenth planet in the solar system (from the Arctic goddess Sedna Sedna believed by the Inuit); OMEGA refined The process of planting new metals is just like astronomers finally discovered the tenth planet after many years, creating a new realm … and this precious metal with beautiful red luster will also be announced at this year’s Basel Watch Fair In the new limited edition Sedna watch, meet the world in a charming posture.

 In addition to the distinctive case material, the Constellation Sedna limited watch is inspired by the first Constellation watch released in 1952. It is a luxurious silver “stereo double circle” dial that is continuously connected in time. The matte bezel is decorated with elegant tonal Rome.
