OMEGA has continually made significant contributions to the art of watchmaking since its founding in 1848. These include the calibre “Omega” introduced in 1894 and the “Marine” created in 1932. They range from the launch of the Speedmaster in 1957 to the Co-Axial calibres which took the horological industry by storm half a century later. While OMEGA has distinguished itself in a number of different professional areas, the brand has always remained true to the core identity it established more than 160 years ago: innovative watchmaker.
OMEGA’s Co-Axial calibres are nothing less than a revolution in the industry. The escapement at the heart of each one has redefined the way mechanical movements are made, with less sliding friction, greater mechanical efficiency, more stable precision and longer service intervals. It is a product of the spirit of innovation that has always defined the brand.
SILICON BALANCE SPRING
One of the smallest components in a watch movement, the balance spring is also one of the most important – it is your watch’s beating heart. Silicon balance springs have some unique qualities and when they equip our Co-Axial calibres, we are able to offer four-year warranties.
