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

Inside this timepiece are the revolutionary components that guarantee the highest standards of performance. From the Co-Axial escapement for long-lasting precision, to the silicon balance spring for superior anti-magnetism, OMEGA has conquered every challenge that matters.

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.
