MASTER CHRONOMETER: THE NEW QUALITY STANDARD

MASTER CHRONOMETER: THE NEW QUALITY STANDARD

It had become clear to OMEGA that existing watch movement certifications were no longer equal to the quality of the brand’s new watches, which is why OMEGA established a new watch certification process approved by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS). Passing this series of eight independent tests and performing within the parameters set by the Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres (COSC) qualifies a timepiece as a Master Chronometer.

Not only do the tests measure the performance of watches in daily wearing conditions, they also ensure that the watch and its movement function properly when exposed to magnetic fields of 15,000 gauss. This revolutionary process established a new quality standard in the watch industry – you’d expect nothing less from OMEGA.
