History is reborn

Omega, a company world-renowned for its pioneering history of exquisite craftsmanship, has reintroduced a real piece of technology from its past.

The First Omega Wrist-Chronograph Limited Edition is an ambitious new collection comprising just 18 watches – with each one housing an original 18’’’ Chro calibre from 1913.

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.

At the launch of the First Omega Wrist-Chronograph Limited Edition at the brand’s ‘Museum Night’ in Biel, Switzerland, Raynald Aeschlimann, President and CEO of Omega, said: “In all my years at this company, I’ve never seen a project quite like this one. The movements are 105 years old, but now their story is set to continue.”

In 1913, Omega became one of the world’s earliest producers of wrist-chronographs and the acclaimed 18’’’ CHRO calibre was integral to that achievement. For this project, the Omega Museum played a significant role in supplying the 18 original 18’’’ CHRO calibres, which were retrieved from heritage timepieces within their vaults.
