IN REACH OF PERFECTION

A 47.7 mm OMEGA calibre adjusted by Alfred Jaccard set a world precision record of 97.8 points out of 100 at the Kew observatory in 1936. Only 2.2 points away from perfection, the record remains unbeaten to this day.

The record-breaking chronometer, along with its certification, can be seen at the OMEGA Museum in the company’s hometown of Biel/Bienne, Switzerland.
