Canopus Gold™ on Leather strap
Handcrafted by a select group of horologists at OMEGA’s Atelier Tourbillon in Switzerland, this Numbered Edition timepiece combines a true example of watchmaking art with the brand’s most advanced and beautiful alloys.
The brushed 43 mm case is made from 18K Canopus Gold™ with a polished bezel, lugs, and caseback, along with a sun-brushed 18K Sedna™ Gold dial that includes a logo and wording in dark grey. The dial is further split between a fluted central ring made from 18K Canopus Gold™ and the outer sections with 18K white gold hour/minute hands and indexes that have all been given a Canopus Gold™ PVD coating.
To enhance the effect, the tourbillon titanium bridge with hand-polished bevelling is set with a diamond-polished 18K Canopus Gold™ seconds hand. On the back, an 18K Sedna™ Gold, PVD-blackened hand indicates the Power Reserve of the watch. The crown, also in polished 18K Canopus Gold™, features a Ω set in 18K Sedna™ Gold.
Presented on a brown leather strap with a polished 18K Canopus Gold™ buckle, the watch includes a sapphire crystal caseback that allows a view of the 18K Sedna™ Gold movement: OMEGA’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 2640. Each Tourbillon is delivered in special box with a certificate of authenticity, a travel pouch and a watch crown winder.
The movement is unaffected by exposure to strong magnetic fields, even those greater than 1.5 tesla (15,000 gauss).
Label given to a watch which has undergone precision tests and received a certificate from an official body (COSC).
Master Chronometer Certified
Guaranteeing the Swiss industry’s highest standard of precision, performance and magnetic-resistance, as set by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS).
A watch series each of whose pieces is numbered sequentially in the order it is produced.
Power reserve indicator
A dial or gauge on the watch which indicates how much time remains before the mainspring must be wound or the battery changed.
An ingenious principle which solves the tricky problem of adjusting mechanical watches. All the components of the escapement (escape wheel, pallets wheel, pallets fork and balance spring) are grouped together in a small mobile cage which makes one rotation per minute. This eradicates any differences in rate due to different positions of the watch and thus guarantees optimal precision for a mechanical watch.
Transparent case back
A transparent case back - frequently made of sapphire - makes it possible to see the movement inside the watch.
OMEGA is proud to include the Swiss Made mark on all of its watches. This simple wording guarantees a standard of quality established over many centuries and is a world-renowned symbol of excellence.

OMEGA has been using the exclusive 18K SednaTM Gold, its own fiery rose gold alloy, since 2012. Named after Sedna, an orbiting planetoid that has been described as one of the reddest in the solar system, SednaTM Gold not only bears all the standard characteristics of other 18K golds, but it also offers high resistance to the fading of colour and lustre over time. Its unique composition includes copper and palladium for colour and stability.

OMEGA has been using the exclusive Canopus GoldTM, an 18K white gold alloy, since 2015. As well as being 100% noble, it bears all the standard characteristics of other 18K golds, while also distinguishing itself for its high brilliance, whiteness and longevity, making it an ideal material for high-end or diamond set timepieces.
The alloy is named after the bright star Canopus, which is 71 times bigger and 10’000 times brighter than our sun. Due to its brilliance and position, Canopus became an important reference point for many space agencies.
Its unique composition includes platinum, rhodium and palladium for colour and stability.

To really appreciate the finer details of a timepiece, OMEGA uses synthetic sapphire crystal with a highly scratch-resistant and anti-reflective treatment. Before the machining and finishing processes take place, the sapphire crystals are produced under the Verneuil process, also called flame fusion. It involves the melting of the raw substance using oxyhydrogen flame and the crystallisation of the melted droplets to form a cylinder. Graded 9 on the Mohs-hardness scale (graded 1-10), the resulting sapphire crystals are virtually scratch-proof and very hard, ensuring an unhindered vision at all times.

Master Chronometer Certified
Twice as precise as any officially certified chronometer
Our Master Chronometer watches are tested and certified twice. Firstly, the movement is tested by the Official Swiss Chronometer Control (COSC) with precision criteria of 0/+5 seconds per day. Then the complete watch and its movement undergo eight Master Chronometer tests set by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS) with criteria of %3/%4 seconds per day.

Master Chronometer Certified
Proprietary anti-magnetic materials
Everyday items such as mobile phones, metal clasps on handbags, laptops, MRI, induction hobs or automatic doors; subject a watch to magnetic fields and can affect its performance for good. To prevent the risk of permanent deviations of up to several minutes a day we've conceived movements with antimagnetic materials, such as the silicon balance spring, capable of withstanding the highest fields.

Master Chronometer Certified
To ensure the integrity of our timepieces at depth, not just some but all watches are fully immersed in water and pressure is applied up to the point of the guaranteed water resistance. By submerging each watch in water we have chosen – yet again - to exceed normal testing standards.
4 / 6
Our watches are engineered to the highest standards and certified as such. Each watch destined to become a Master Chronometer must first pass 8 stringent tests. The examinations we perform for precision, magnetic-resistance, power reserve and water-resistance allow us to cover the certified watches with a comprehensive 5-year warranty.

Extended service intervals
Each Master Chronometer is equipped with a Co-Axial escapement, conceived to reduce the mechanical constraints inside the movement. This significantly reduces the need for lubrication and hence the need for servicing. All mechanical movements need to be serviced periodically, but an OMEGA Master Chronometer offers more time between servicing than many other watches.

During the homologation process, OMEGA watches are tested to the extreme. This phase includes shock examinations, to confirm the reliability of each timepiece, and to check that its precision is maintained after a severe impact. All OMEGA timepieces are designed to withstand shocks corresponding to a 1-metre drop on a hard wooden floor. For a standard 150g timepiece, this sudden and rapid acceleration is an equivalent force of up to 5,000 G on the watch head.
OMEGA’s first manual-winding central tourbillon movement, with Co Axial escapement, black ceramised titanium tourbillon cage and base, hand polished bevels on cage, bridges and mechanisms, 18K Sedna™ gold bridges and main plate. Titanium tourbillon cage rotates completely once every minute. 3 days power reserve indicator. Magnetic resistance of 15,000 gauss allows the timepiece to be certified at the industry’s highest level.
