Omega's new central Tourbillon is BADASS πŸ‘

Oct 16, 2020,11:21 AM
 

Check out this NEW Omega Master Chronometer Central Tourbillon in RG.



























Only 5 have been produced so far and it has the same concept as the new Ed White 321 so ONLY 1 watchmaker from start to finish and in the same department reserved for artisanal products. The movement bridges are in solid gold and hand finished so probably the most artisanal piece Omega has come out with so far. It's an exceptional piece to show Omega's savoir faire and to change it's image of entering into more "haute horlogerie." πŸ€”πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚

The case is super complex consisting of 3 parts in rose gold and white gold (exclusively for Omega called Caponus as it is a mixture with palladium). It also has gold chatons around the rubies, similar to Lange. Overall, top quality finishing for Omega. Almost forgot to say that it is also a Master Chronometer so METAS certified πŸ˜‰

May I ask you if you collect one?

Thought about it but at +160k euros I had to give it back πŸ€£πŸ˜‚

Too many on the hit list to get distracted by this piece even if it is stunning and a first for Omega πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

LOL +1 πŸ˜‰πŸ˜œ

I think it is a great piece but for more than 160k € I think I would go with an Independent and/or several pieces. I give Omega a lot of credit for producing this watch to the highest of quality and think it is an amazing project that will pay off in the ... 

Caramba

What a piece

It is an exceptional piece and ONLY 5 have been produced so far. I think I know of 1 person who purchased one as he is most likely the largest Omega collector in the world...

but besides that, the other 4 have also been sold from what I understand πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

Omega would be always Omega. From the cheapest DeVille to the Omega here. That’s why i am proud to own and wear a Omega. And i want more....

What you post is

The greatest Speedmaster i’ve ever seen from a picture. Is it yours? Not only the star, but the box is well done.

Yes...and thank you.

If you check out the Omega section there are some recent Speedy shots that are a match for anything I’ve taken but I’m very flattered! 😁😁😁

Speedy.

Stunning pics and great post .

Looks amazing this Omega . Def something rare . Thanks for sharing

Agree but this is NOT part of their Deville line like the previous central tourbillions. This is a COMPLETELY NEW watch which is made in their artisanal department alongside the EW 321...

 
 By: holdemchamp1225 : October 17th, 2020-13:06
So now Omega has 2 watches in this department which will be made by a single watxhmaker from A to Z. It is a good start for them to inteoduce more artisanal pieces with high quality and standards.

Thanks. I'm aware it's not a De Ville. I was merely communicating a preference. [nt]

The development you describe is welcome. After all, the company changed its name owing to a movement. It would be nice if it tapped some of that tradition to create new pieces.

Been holding off commenting as . . .

. . . I'm of two minds. πŸ˜• One the one hand, it's a tour de force both technically and aesthetically. It's reassuring to know that Omega is capable of creating works of horological art. But should they? Fred Astaire was practically peerless as a dancer, an... 

I would agree with you to a point Art but to say that Omega is peerless is a but of a stretch especially if I think of JLC which IMHO is above and beyond what Omega has ever been...

 
 By: holdemchamp1225 : October 20th, 2020-03:12
in terms of horological competence. I love Omega and their history but comparing them to JLC one can clearly see the difference πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

We're agreed when it comes to complications and exotica, but . . .

 
 By: Dr No : October 20th, 2020-09:31
. . . where the basics are concerned, with ordinary production movements, Omega was practically peerless during the Golden Age of watchmaking objectively, with independent corroboration at timing trials. While the jury may still be out for this century, m... 

I do agree with you about the Golden age and even modern production of standard movements, especially with Daniel's coaxial escapement BUT when it comes with ANY type of complication...

 
 By: holdemchamp1225 : October 20th, 2020-10:26
alarm, chronograph, travel time, minute repeater, tourbillon, etc...JLC is the one who is peerless. Just naming the Duometre line which includes a monopusher chronograph with foudroyante function, quantieme moonphase with zero reset function, travel time ... 

Then we are . . .

 
 By: Dr No : October 20th, 2020-10:38
. . . almost fully agreed. I say almost because I consider UN to be JLC's peer when it comes to the cutting edge of horological innovation. Where we might disagree is the relative importance of innovation for innovation's sake. When it comes to practical ... 

πŸ€πŸ‘ to UN and JLC with JLC having a longer history of innovation but I do agree from the 80s and on...

As for Omega and practical application, Seiko and GS would have to be slightly ahead due to vertical integration and the fact they do everything themselves πŸ˜‰ So we are 95% there 😁😜

Wow

Badass indeed
