Omega's New Watch Certification: Electronics equipment ? Different?sharetweetshareIn December, Omega and METAS, the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology, held a joint press conference in Geneva to announce a new collaboration. Beginning in 2015, Omega replica watches which might be badged "Master Co-Axial" will be officially certified by METAS, by using a new testing system. What can this mean for Omega, as well as for watch certification systems generally speaking? Let's take an appearance.At the December Press Conference, held for the Cite du Temps in Geneva, Swatch Group CEO Nick Hayek was accompanied by Omega President Stephen Urquhart and Christian Bock, the director of METAS, to discuss the brand new system.The new certification represents a larger standard of accuracy. Omega replica watches will be certified due to just consistent timekeeping additionally antimagnetism and water proof. METAS, which describes itself as "the federal centre of competence for all the business of measurement as well as for measuring equipment and measuring procedures," will become the impartial regulating body to ensure Omega's manufacturing standards fulfill the brand's promises. Going forward, all Omega Master Co-Axial calibers are going to be tested to meet up with certain standards. Each movement must still function when in contact with magnetic fields greater than 15,000 Gauss iwc da vinci kurt klaus watches . Each finished watch must also keep function when encountered with magnetic fields more than 15,000 Gauss. The watch must keep consistent time, between 0 and +5 seconds/day, when tested at a specific temperature plus in different positions. Finally, each watch must be tested to make sure it achieves its stated power reserve and water resistance.Omega's relocate to develop a new certification system with METAS is really important for a lot of reasons. The past many years, Omega has been with the lead in developing new measures to protect replica watches from magnetic fields. While using Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra >15,000 Gauss, the brand has produced a watch movement that can keep time consistently even after contact with one of the most intense magnetic fields you are very likely to encounter vintage patek philippe watches . (Note: Search for WatchTime's overview of the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra >15,000 Gauss in the January-February 2015 issue or download it from our online store to the information.)The true secret to Omega's design innovations is the using antimagnetic materials from the movement. Whereas the most popular answer to magnetism has been to shield the movement inside a soft iron Faraday cage, Omega's antimagnetic replica watches use silicon balance springs that won't respond to magnetic fields in any respect. Since Omega has become publicizing its accomplishments in antimagnetic watchmaking, the new certification enables the brand to generate this engineering achievement official, like a standard that can be confirmed by an impartial observer.Another reason to the new certificate is COSC. For many years, the Contrle Officiel Suisse des Chronometres has become the defacto standard with the watch industry. This independent Swiss body tests uncased movements for timekeeping accuracy, and is also the only institution in Switzerland that may sanction the application of the word "chronometer" with a watch dial. Omega is certainly an essential supporter of COSC. With the 1.69 million replica watches COSC certified in 2013, more than 447,000 were for Omega, making it the next biggest chronometer producer after Rolex.However, nowadays a lot more watch brands have sought other standards of quality and have formed their own personal, often believing that COSC certification is way too lenient. To move the COSC test a watch movement must maintain accuracy between -4 and +6 seconds every day; however, a movement's timekeeping can be affected through the casing-up process or if the rotor is affixed by using an automatic - and all of this happens following the COSC test continues to be completed. Considering that the new Omega testing is going to be performed for the movement and also on the finished watch - and since it features a narrower allowance, not permitting the watch to reduce seconds, simply to gain - it should supply a higher standard than COSC. Omega consistently certify its chronometers with COSC in the long term, though the volume of movements receiving COSC certification will decrease as more Master Co-Axial calibers receive the new METAS certification.The modern certificate will also have far-ranging effects how and where Omega manufactures its replica watches. While testing will initially appear in Omega's current facilities, the brand has plans for a new factory which has a dedicated testing site. Testing are going to be performed and checked onsite in line with METAS specifications replica watches . Omega can be making it simpler to have info on watch testing than before. The owner of a professional Master Co-Axial Omega is able to visit a niche site while using the watch's warranty card. There, the specific results of the individual watch, as well as the testing parameters, will likely be easily obtainable. At the press conference in December, Hayek and Urquhart were encouraging with the fact that any brand can contract with METAS to have an impartial certification system. While Omega provides its particular standards for your Master Co-Axial movements, other brands could follow suit. Hayek expressed hopes that development can result in more widespread innovation. "This would conserve the entire industry - installing Switzerland but in China and Japan and in other countries using a good innovative watchmaking," Hayek said.sharetweetshare replica audemars piguet swiss watches
