歐米茄Atelier Tourbillon的專家運用專門工藝重塑這批珍貴的獲獎經典機芯，成為全新限量版系列腕表內裡的靈魂。7月2日，歐米茄假瑞士比爾舉行Museum Night活動，並藉此機會正式向全球發佈 “First OMEGA Wrist-Chronograph限量版”系列。當晚，邀得多位名人出席與來賓暢談，席間更讓大家先睹此非凡腕表的風采。
Through a special and dedicated process, the prized calibres have been delicately refurbished by the experts at OMEGA’s Atelier Tourbillon and given a new lease of life for use inside these new Limited Edition models. The “First OMEGA Wrist-Chronograph Limited Edition” was proudly launched at the brand’s “Museum Night” in Biel, Switzerland on 2 July. As well as hearing from some very special speakers, guests were also treated to the first glimpse of the new watch.
For the outside design of the 47.5 mm timepieces, OMEGA has followed the look of an OMEGA wrist-chronograph from 1913, with classic details such as the riveted leather strap and the white enamel dial with blued “Empire” hands and hollow Arabic numerals. This design was a favourite amongst military personnel during the First World War. Aviators, especially, were drawn to the easy-to-read dial design and 15-minute counters which were ideal for the most challenging missions. Numerous models were delivered to the Royal Flying Corps and used by some of the most famous wartime pilots and soldiers in history.
Modern materials have also been included, such as 18K white gold for the case, and 18K Sedna™ gold for the crown and pusher. The classic design also features a hatched caseback, which can be flipped open to reveal the refurbished movement positioned behind sapphire-crystal.
