Description

This striking numbered edition links the world’s first minute repeater wristwatch - produced by OMEGA in 1892 - to the pocket chronographs OMEGA used to time the 1932 Olympic Games in Los Angeles.

Cased in 18K Sedna™ Gold. It has a “Grand Feu” enamel dial with a 925 Silver guilloché inner bezel and subdials in OMEGA’s unique “exclusive acoustic waves” pattern: an exact visual representation of the soundwaves produced by the watch’s chimes.

The dial’s variety of blued hands in 18K Sedna™ Gold includes a red-varnished split seconds hand for easy readability. The chime pusher at 5 o’clock sports a charming polished and embossed music note, while the split-seconds pusher at 11 o’clock has a red hybrid ceramic ring to mirror the look of the split seconds hand.

Beautifully engraved on the caseback are the words Official Timekeeper Olympic Games, Co-Axial Master Chronometer and the watch’s number. The brown leather strap with 18K Sedna™ Gold buckle includes OMEGA’s new Quick-Change patented system.

The watch’s special presentation box in walnut, which features a resonance plate made of spruce to amplify the sound of each chime, includes an additional leather strap and two leather cords, allowing the “timekeeper” to wear it as a discreet pocket watch or a stopwatch around the neck.

Providing the power is the most complicated calibre OMEGA has ever made: OMEGA’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 1932. A fully integrated chronograph and minute repeater, which fuses both functions together in one watch movement, in order to chime the elapsed time.

SednaTM Gold

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.

Sapphire Crystal

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.

The advantages
of this watch

Behind the elegance of every Master Chronometer timepiece is the highest level of testing: 8 tests over 10 days, to ensure superior precision and anti‑magnetic resistance. We’ve raised our standards. You can too.

Movement CALIBRE OMEGA 1932

Calibre 1932

The most complicated movement the brand has ever produced, OMEGA’s Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 1932, developed with Blancpain, is a fully integrated chronograph and minute repeater. In order to chime the elpased time, the 1932 requires its own mechanical “brain” to merge the two functions and sense which one to engage. Its Co-Axial escapement, an essential component in all of OMEGA’s movements, beats at an unusual 5 Hz to display 1/10th of a second, like the pocket chronographs used to time the 1932 Olympic Games. The complex movement also integrates a security and split seconds function. The luxurious handmade calibre is satin-brushed, mirror polished and graced with 46.44 grams of gold.
