Omega presents its Limited Edition Wrist-Chronograph, a collection of 18 pieces that are the embodiment of luxury.
The luxury watches brand has released a limited edition collection, and we don’t know what it is but the idea of a limited edition always sparks our interest.
The new collection by Omega is definitely worth a look as it is an extremely rare practice of inheriting the materials and difficulty in craft from the previous model.
The Omega wrist-chronograph is a collectible series of 18 pieces that house the original chronograph movements from watched made in 1913. These are not reproductions, but rather archival movements that have been in Omega’s museum for the past 105 years. These are truly a piece of history on the wrist.
The modern model has a few alterations, as a 47.5mm case made in 18k white gold and a mono-pusher in 18k Sedna red gold.
But the highlight of the watch it’s hardly its exterior. The true gem is on the inside, in the refinished 18th CHRO movement. Each of the movements was restores meticulously to honor its historical significance. The process of refurbishment marries modern analytical and machining methods with tradition hand assembly, adjustment, and finishing techniques in order to produce the finished wristwatch.
Most of the larger components, as the base plates and bridges were retained, although they were refinished to a higher degree than the original.
This new collection will be available this month, July of 2018.
Above an original from the early 1900’s.
