OMEGA 8508 coaxial movement is the most remarkable technological breakthrough recently. It can resist more than 1.5 Tesla (15,000 Gauss) magnetic field, and its anti-magnetic ability is far better than any previous watch. The movement is high, solving the technical problems that have plagued watchmakers for decades.
This mechanical watch movement was first adopted by OMEGA’s Aqua Terra & gt; 15,000 Gauss antimagnetic watch. This 41.5mm coaxial stainless steel astronomical watch can be matched with a matching chain or brown leather strap. The watch has a slightly yellowish black lacquered surface. The brand has more casually polished it with sun rays scattered from the center. It is decorated with the familiar ‘deck-style’ vertical texture of the OMEGA Aqua Terra series. The yellow ‘& gt; 15,000 GAUSS’ words are unique and outstanding.
This technology was jointly developed by ETA, ASULAB, Nivarox FAR and a team of OMEGA engineers. This group of elites successfully manufactured the first prototype movement, which was placed in the OMEGA hippocampus Aqua Terra watch. Different from the previous anti-magnetic method, the OMEGA movement does not rely on the protective layer placed in the case to reduce the influence of the magnetic field. Instead, it uses a non-ferrous material cast movement. This movement will receive multiple patents. Even if it is in a magnetic field environment of more than 15,000 Gauss, it can still reach the level of the astronomical table approved by the Swiss official observatory.
For many years, the watchmaking industry has been relying on the inner case to reduce the impact of magnetic fields on watches, but this method has many limitations, including the inability to resist stronger permanent magnets, and from the aesthetic point of view, the inner case also hinders The possibility of see-through movement design also prevents the watch from setting a calendar window display. Since the movement of the OMEGA Seahorse Aqua Terra & gt; 15,000 Gaussian antimagnetic watch does not need to be protected by the inner case, the movement itself is antimagnetic, so it uses a transparent sapphire crystal as the bottom cover, which can see the 8508 coaxial machine inside. At the same time, a calendar window can be set at 3 o’clock.
The OMEGA Sea Horse Aqua Terra & gt; 15,000 Gauss antimagnetic watch has a water resistance of 15 bar (150 meters / 500 feet), combined with a coaxial mechanical watch movement and a Si14 silicon spring, to ensure accurate and reliable timing, and enjoy four years of maintenance. The magnetic field has always been a difficult problem for watchmakers. In daily life, the magnetic field is increasing and ubiquitous. Watchmakers need to demagnetize mechanical watches from time to time, otherwise the performance of the watch will be affected by the surroundings. The magnetic field affects and loses accuracy. With the birth of this new movement, this problem is also solved.
The advent of the OMEGA Sea Horse Aqua Terra & gt; 15,000 Gaussian antimagnetic watch marks that the innovative antimagnetic technology developed by OMEGA will forever change the way the watchmaking industry solves the increasing magnetic field problems.
