We select the metals used according to their mechanical, hypoallergenic and aesthetic characteristics. These characteristics are regularly tested by our specialised laboratory.
The stainless steel used is of medical quality (identical to that used in medical instruments). Although this alloy contains 18% nickel, it does not release this element when in contact with the skin under normal wearing conditions. However, we recommend that people who are hypersensitive to nickel avoid stainless steel models.
We also offer bracelets made of titanium, which are distinguished by their lightness and thermal properties. This metal is warmer than gold or steel when it comes into contact with the skin. In addition, titanium is a hypoallergenic and particularly resistant material.
For the manufacture of precious metal elements, we exclusively use Gold 750‰ or Platinum 950‰. OMEGA’s exclusive gold alloys, such as SEDNA™, CANOPUS™ or MOONSHINE™, provide enhanced resistance to tarnishing so that the aesthetics of your bracelet retain their original brilliance.
Our textile straps are made from a nylon polyamide fabric known for its hypoallergenic properties, durability and strength.
