Description

OMEGA’s Museum Collection reflects the noble heritage of a great brand. Outstanding timepieces are selected from the Museum – they have to be more than fifty years old – and are honoured with a reissue incorporating both traditional design excellence and OMEGA’s innovative contemporary watchmaking.

The OMEGA Museum Collection N° 9: “Milestone 1941” features a black dial with a telemetric scale, a minute track and a tachymetric scale. There is a 30-minute recorder and a small seconds dial located at the 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions, respectively. The 38 mm 18K white gold case is presented on a black leather strap. The caseback features a special Museum engraving and the watch’s limited edition number. This manual-winding chronograph is a COSC-certified chronometer and is powered by OMEGA's mechanical calibre 3203, and was produced in an edition limited to 1941 pieces.

    Sapphire Crystal

White Gold

Gold in its pure form (24K) is slightly reddish yellow and very soft. It is usually alloyed with other base metals for a diverse variety of uses. Considered to be the premium standard in watch and jewellery making, 18K gold (with at least 75% pure gold) provides the ultimate balance between purity and usefulness. Traditional 18K white gold is alloyed with palladium-copper and offers an excellent resistance to corrosion, while being highly bio-chemically inert. It provides a beautiful hue that suits wearers even with sensitive skin.

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.
