Omega De Ville Hour Vision: a new collection to its exclusive calibres 8500/8501
To celebrate the launch of its exclusive calibres 8500/8501 manufactured internally (see below), Omega presents a new collection of timepieces in the city, baptized Hour Vision range. 41 Mm in the Hour Vision of city housing married the current trend towards large-format watches and is distinguished by sought finishes that proudly announce the introduction of the brand among the biggest names in watchmaking. In fact, calibres 8500/8501 give a new luxurious patina movements Omega of the third millennium.
Four openings on the edge of the housing, as well as more traditional Sapphire caseback sapphire glass, bathe the heart of the watch of light to expose mechanical pedigree and details the 8500 Replica Watches rhodium gauge or caliber 8501 rhodium and red gold 18 carats.
The Hour Vision model shows its difference and embodies the new orientation of the production of Omega, without abandoning the classic elegance of the city family.
Details such as the four openings on each side of the Crown, 9 hours and between the horns of the town, traditionally round box glass give the shows a key contemporary and sophisticated and emphasize its technical superiority to the inside and outside.
Glass openings are not only something attractive, but a technological breakthrough: it is a complete build Sapphire which is embedded in the casing in stainless steel or red gold 18-carat so that the watch remains water-resistant up to 100 meters, and up to 5,000 G shock resistant.
On the dial, details reveal the complexity of crafts involved in each element of the stopwatch. The Hour Vision model by 18 CT red gold is available with a silver or brown dial. The stainless Rolex Replica steel version is available with a black or silver dial.
On all models, the most singular element is the graduation of hours grooved, rhodium, supplemented by elegantly faceted solid gold.
When the second-hand goes around the dial, the light illuminates facets of polished diamond hour indexes. The hour and minute are all two faceted and diamond polished on the slice, creating a contrast and a stylish game between brushed and polished surfaces. They are red or white gold 18 karats, matching the color of the box.
The date window positioned at three o'clock is bordered by a wall in red or white gold polished diamond 18kt. A path of discrete iron of the minutes is applied along the outer edge of the dial for the minutes, and the Omega name is applied in red or white gold 18-carat, depending on the model. The dial is clearly visible through the Sapphire Crystal anti-reflective double-sided.
All components manufactured templates, with the exception of the spiral spring already produced by the brand, have been created exclusively for Omega. Rather than just to have created an exclusive manufacture caliber, Omega has optimized the precision of its patented escapement and its free swinging, free balance, improving its design and expanding the size of the movement (13 rows).
The latter, chronometer by the COSC-certified, has housed in two barrels in Series 60-hour power reserve and is powered by the energy of the bi-directional rotor. Together, they offer excellent market stability in the long term and improve the performance of this superlative in every way stopwatch.
Beyond the attention given to aesthetics and mechanical superiority, this watch also has a strong pragmatic nature. From this solid base, OMEGA will be able to develop new annexes complications and additional functions.
The Hour Vision watch is presented on a leather bracelet black or brown alligator that fits in the box with a metal insert, intended to limit the rotation of the bracelet, and attaches with a clasp (18 CT red gold or stainless steel) which guarantees the closure secure the watch, while providing maximum comfort to its owner.
The design and style of metal bracelets (which include a new system screw pin patented allowing a very easy adjustment) have been completely revised. Finally, in the metal clasp, the clasp carries the logo Omega 18kt gold polished.
Known for having produced the first movement industrialized of all time, constantly seeking to improve the performance and the quality of its timepieces, the Longines Omega has just reached a milestone by launching its new calibers manufactures.
Thus, calibers 8500/8501 are introduced for the first time in a collection of baptized watches Hour Vision within the City line.
This step heralds a new era for Omega. 202 Components that contains this template have all, without exception, been fully created, using technologies of the third millennium, in order to guarantee optimum performance, indicates the brand.
For more than five years, Omega has undertaken to improve its mechanical chronometers. Through the project of caliber 8500, the objective of the brand was to refresh its patented technology of the co-axial escapement, which improves the accuracy in the long term. Introduced in 1999, this invention is the work of a master-respected British watchmaker, George Daniels, in collaboration with Omega.
The co-axial escapement occurs at the heart of the watch since this redesigned component is responsible for the regular transmission of energy to the mechanism. Coupled with a balance without a racket, the co-axial escapement to ensure the excellent stability of market in the long term, as well as an improvement of the performance of the watch. Furthermore, the lubrication of this tiny component becomes almost superfluous.
The automatic mechanism includes a bi-directional rotor with excellent performance. The energy is then transmitted by two barrels, providing a generous 60-hour power reserve.
At the time of the watch trips in other time zones is easy, since needle may be adjusted hours apart from those of the minutes and seconds. 8500/8501 Calibers have been certified chronometer by the COSC (Contr?le Officiel Switzerland of chronometers).
As befits a movement of this category, great care was granted the finishing and decoration of components. In the case of the Caliber 8501, the rotor and the balance bridge are red gold 18 karats. The presence of components in 18 CT red gold recalls the rich heritage of Omega's history in watchmaking as in the past, red gold was used in the movements of the mark. Screws, barrels and the balance wheel are blackened - as opposed to blued steel treated with heat - to create a contemporary, unusual matte finish. Bridges and the rotor are decorated with a C?tes de Genève motif 'Arabesque', a first world.
For what is caliber 8500, its elegant monochrome look, enhanced by all black finishes, and rhodium, gives a futuristic line for this timepiece: it is both a modernization of the aesthetics of the Omega Watches, as well as a very successful reinterpretation. The movement is perfectly visible through the Sapphire Crystal on the slice and the back of the housing.
