Omega Replica New Watch Certification: What Makes It Different?

Omega and METAS, the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology, held a joint press conference in Geneva to announce a new collaboration. Starting in 2015, Omega watches that are badged “Master Co-Axial” will be officially certified by METAS, using a new testing system. But what does this mean for Cheap Replica Watches, and for watch certification systems in general? Let’s take a look.


At the December Press Conference, held at the Cité du Temps in Geneva, Swatch Group CEO Nick Hayek was joined by Cheap Omega Replica President Stephen Urquhart and Christian Bock, the director of METAS, to discuss the new system.


The new certification represents a higher standard of accuracy. Omega watches will now be certified for not just consistent timekeeping but also for antimagnetism and water resistance. METAS, which describes itself as “the federal centre of competence for all issues related to measurement and for measuring equipment and measuring procedures,” will become the impartial regulating body to ensure that Omega’s manufacturing standards meet the brand’s promises. Going forward, all Omega Replica Watches calibers will be tested to meet certain standards. Each movement must continue to function when exposed to magnetic fields greater than 15,000 Gauss. Each finished watch must also continue to function when exposed to magnetic fields greater than 15,000 Gauss. The watch must keep consistent time, between 0 and +5 seconds/day, when tested at different temperatures and in different positions. Finally, each watch must be tested to ensure it achieves its stated power reserve and water resistance.


Omega’s move to develop a new certification system with METAS is significant for several reasons. For the last several years, Omega has been at the lead in developing new measures to protect watches from magnetic fields. With the Omega Seamaster Replica Watches Aqua Terra >15,000 Gauss, the brand has produced a watch movement that can keep time consistently even after exposure to some of the most intense magnetic fields a person is likely to encounter.


To pass the COSC test a watch movement must maintain accuracy between -4 and +6 seconds per day; however, a movement’s timekeeping can be affected during the casing-up process or when the rotor is affixed on an automatic – and all of this occurs after the COSC test has been completed. Since the new Omega Replica testing will be performed on both the movement and on the finished watch – and since it has a narrower allowance, not permitting the watch to lose seconds, only to gain – it should provide a higher standard than COSC. Omega will continue to certify its chronometers with COSC over the coming years, but the number of movements receiving COSC certification will decrease as more and more Master Co-Axial calibers receive the new METAS certification.


The owner of a certified Master Co-Axial Omega will be able to log onto a site using the watch’s warranty card. There, the specific results of the individual watch, as well as the testing parameters, will be readily available. At the press conference in December, Hayek and Urquhart were encouraging about the fact that any brand can contract with METAS for an impartial certification system. While Omega Replica Watches has provided its particular standards for the Master Co-Axial movements, other brands could follow suit. Hayek expressed hopes that this development may lead to more widespread innovation. “This would benefit the entire industry – not only in Switzerland but in China and Japan and in other countries with a history of innovative watchmaking,” Hayek said.

Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black Collection Replica Watches

The Deep Black collection adds touches of color and gold to a one-piece 45.5-mm case of black zirconium oxide ceramic complemented with similarly black ceramic bezels and dials. Cheap Omega Replica has devised a ceramic case for this collection that has been tested for water resistance to 600 meters, or about 2,000 feet, which the firm claims is the first ceramic watch case tested to reach such depths.The Planet Ocean Deep Black models differ by accent color and one features its bezel, crowns, hands and indices forged from Omega’s own 18k Sedna gold. All also boast a new GMT ring that has been fixed to the dial, while each model’s diving scale is built directly into the ceramic bezel using markers and numerals made with Liquidmetal or Ceragold, a proprietary Omega Replica Watches gold-ceramic alloy.

Omega injects red or blue vulcanized rubber directly into the bezels of two models to colorfully mark the 15-minute dive-time indication, as well as to match the hands and the 12, 6, and 9 indication colors on those models.Rubber-injected “He” marks the Helium valve on the red and blue models, while the symbol is in Liquidmetal on the black model.Two Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black models — the Black and the Sedna gold versions — feature ceramic cases and dials polished for a glossy effect. The blue- and red-accented versions feature cases and dials that are matte finished, which Omega says offers better visibility underwater. For the gold model, Omega Replica uses its 18k Sedna gold to accent the hands and indices; the three other Deep Black dials feature hands and indices of 18k white gold. All are coated in white Super-LumiNova that emits green and blue colors.
You’ll recall that Omega announced the Master Chronometer certification in 2015, explaining that each Master Chronometer watch will be certified as having passed eight tests set by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology. The tests are said to replicate or exceed real-life wearing conditions highlighted by the enhanced resistance to magnetic fields. This standard, first offered with the new Cheap Omega Replica Globemaster late last year, is meant to verify the watch’s precision and performance and is added to the COSC certification Omega already extends to these watches. Omega also adds a four-year warranty to this expanded certification.A look at the caseback of these new Deep Black models reveals more than a clear view of that Caliber 8906, which features a silicon balance spring, Omega’s proprietary Co-Axial escapement and a 60-hour power reserve. Developing a new ceramic case for dive models necessitated new technology, specifically a patented ceramic Naiad Lock, to ensure a water-resistant caseback for a material rarely used to case dive watches. With the caseback thus locked tight, Omega added another aesthetic touch to the Omega Replica Watches Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black design by orienting the caseback so that the engraved wording always sits perfectly in position, with “Deep Black” at the top of the caseback and “Planet Ocean” below.

Three of the Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black Omega Replica come on a black rubber strap that looks like a fabric strap. Each offers contrasting stitching. A wave pattern can be found on the underside. On the Sedna gold model, the strap is water-resistant leather with the same anti-bacterial rubber underside. The fold-over clasp is made from ceramized titanium, while the clasp cover is made in ceramic with two types of finishing. All straps are treated with an anti-bacterial coating.
