A NEW HEART

2008

A NEW HEART

To create a mechanical watch equal to the challenges of a contemporary lifestyle, OMEGA had to rethink the very heart of its movements. In 2008, OMEGA released the Si14 balance spring, created to resist the ever-increasing magnetic forces that are part of our lives. Named after the chemical symbol and atomic number of silicon, the new spring significantly reduces deviation and improves chronometric stability.

Watches equipped with OMEGA’s proprietary Co-Axial movement and fitted with the Si14 balance spring offer such outstanding stability and reliability that they are delivered with a full four-year warranty.
