Omega Watch Co.
OMEGA is proud to present an innovation that redefines the entire theory of mechanical watchmaking. The escapement is the “heart” of every mechanical watch, and the basic theory behind it had remained unchanged for over 200 years. OMEGA has broken the mold with a totally new design - the Co-Axial escapement - developed in conjunction with master watchmaker George Daniels.
The new design is based on double Co-Axial escape wheel, a lever with three pallet stones and impulse stone on the balance roller, together with a free sprung-balance. The Co-Axial system reduces sliding friction compared with the traditional Swiss lever escapement and thus ensures greater accuracy over time.The self-winding mechanical movement is a COSC-certified chronometer with a 44-hour power reserve. It has a meticulous finish, with circular graining, Geneva waves, polished and bevelled bridges and rhodium-plated surfaces.
