WATCHMAKING

OMEGA has continually made significant contributions to the art of watchmaking since its founding in 1848. These include the calibre “Omega” introduced in 1894 and the "Marine" created in 1932. They range from the launch of the Speedmaster in 1957 to the Co-Axial calibres which took the horological industry by storm half a century later. While OMEGA has distinguished itself in a number of different professional areas, the brand has always remained true to the core identity it established more than 160 years ago: innovative watchmaker.

In 2014, our Master Co-Axial movements are the big story; we also honour our heritage with new Speedmasters, the De Ville Trésor and the totally updated Seamaster 300. Breath-taking design defines the De Ville Prestige Butterfly and the Constellation Pluma.

Co-Axial Technology

Co-Axial Technology

OMEGA’s Co-Axial calibres are nothing less than a revolution in the industry. The escapement at the heart of each one has redefined the way mechanical movements are made, with less sliding friction, greater mechanical efficiency, more stable precision and longer service intervals. It is a product of the spirit of innovation that has always defined the brand.

One of the smallest components in a watch movement, the balance spring is also one of the most important – it is your watch’s beating heart. Silicon balance springs have some unique qualities and when they equip our Co-Axial calibres, we are able to offer four-year warranties. 


Truly anti-magnetic

The Seamaster Aqua Terra > 15’000 Gauss is the world’s first truly anti-magnetic wristwatch. Its OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 8508 solves a problem that has perplexed horologists for centuries: the effect of magnetism on timepieces. Even magnetic resonance imaging can’t slow it down. OMEGA has met another one of watchmaking’s greatest challenges.

Sedna Gold

Sedna Gold

18K Sedna™ gold takes its name from a trans-Neptunian planetoid which is one of the most distant known objects in our Solar System. Scientists have commented on its bold red colour and we were inspired to name our compelling new alloy for this mysterious faraway traveller.

Ceragold technology

Ceragold technology

Among the most talked about processes at OMEGA is the creation of an innovative new product called Ceragold™. The world premiere enables the incrustation of 18K gold into zirconium-based ceramic bezels, resulting in a blended material that is aesthetically stunning and absolutely smooth to the touch.


Liquidmetal

Liquidmetal

The OMEGA Seamaster Planet Ocean Liquidmetal® Limited Edition is the world’s first watch to blend ceramics and an alloy called Liquidmetal®. The result is pure OMEGA: a design premiere which will retain its appearance forever.
