The Omega caliber 8500
Renowned as the watchmaking company which produced the first-ever industrialized movement and always looking to improve the performance and quality of its timepieces, OMEGA has taken a step further and launched its in-house manufacture calibres 8500/8501. The new calibres are launched for the first time in a revolutionary collection of timepieces within the De Ville range aptly named Hour Vision.
This milestone heralds a new era for OMEGA as a leading presence in the elite field of mechanical watchmaking. All of the 202 components have been newly created entirely in-house using third millennium technology to ensure optimum performance.
OMEGA has been working on improving the mechanical watch for over half a decade and when setting out on the Calibre 8500 project, OMEGA’s aim was to up-grade its existing proprietary Co-Axial technology which improves precision over long periods.
