Meet Omega Hour Vision Blue Watch

Feb 02, 2011
Omega is pleased to present its new timepiece - the Hour Vision Blue watch. In close cooperation with actor and brand ambassador Daniel Craig, the brand created the special edition watch to support ORBIS International’s fight against preventable blindness.

The new Omega watch boasts a 360° transparent case-body housed in a rugged 41 mm outer case crafted in stainless steel.

The heart of the Hour Vision Blue watch is the brand’s Co-Axial calibre 8500. The in-house movement has been of revolutionary importance in the field of series-produced mechanical watchmaking. The precision and performance of the self-winding movement is crowned by an official chronometer certification. It incorporates the Co-Axial escapement on three levels.

This remarkable technology allows to adjust the hour hand independently of the minute and seconds hands. Due to this peculiarity, the Omega watch is an ideal timekeeping companion for travelers who often change time zones.

The 39-jewel movement, operating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, offers 60 hours of power-reserve.

The polished, screwed case-back has a sapphire crystal window that reveals the beauty of the Co-Axial movement. The timepiece is 100-metre water-resistant.

The Omega watch catches the glance by its sun-brushed blue dial elaborated specially for the Hour Vision Blue. The dial is completed with 18K white gold facetted hour, minute and seconds hands. You will notice the date window at 3 o’clock.

The Omega Hour Vision Blue watch embraces the wrist with a black leather strap.

Omega intends to offer continuous support to ORBIS International over the next four years to come via donating a minimum of a million dollars to the organization. ORBIS International holds its programs in 88 countries, having trained some 250,000 health care specialists and having provided medical care to over 12 million people all over the world.
