Omega Announces Innovative Anti-Magnetic Movement

Jan 21, 2013
Omega has created an innovative anti-magnetic watch movement that makes a watch resistant to magnetic fields more than 1.5 tesla (equal to 15,000 gauss). This remarkable level of magnetic resistance greatly exceeds the levels of magnetic resistance provided by other timepieces.

As magnets are now more present in our everyday lives than ever before, magnetism represents a serious issue for watchmakers who have to demagnetize mechanical timepieces that have been exposed to magnetic fields and lost the accuracy of their performance. The new Omega movement successfully solves this problem.

The Omega team developed the technology that allowed them to develop the first prototype of the movement. The watchmakers have used it for an Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra watch.

Oris Presents Aquis Depth Gauge Watch

Jan 18, 2013
Oris presents its new Aquis Depth Gauge watch. The novelty introduces a revolutionizing concept in the world of professional diving as it represents the first diver’s watch that measures depth by allowing water to enter the timepiece. The brand’s engineers have applied the Boyle Mariotte Law to the patented model.

The new Oris watch is constructed with a special sapphire crystal that is 50% thicker than an average top glass. The sapphire crystal has a channel milled into the side. This channel runs anticlockwise round the dial and stops between 1 and 2 o’clock. At 12 o’clock, there is a hole leading to this channel. A rubber gasket is used for sealing the join between the crystal and the case.

When the diver descents with the watch on his wrist, the air found inside the channel is compressed by the surrounding water pressure, and water enters through the 12 o’clock inlet. The edge, visible in light and dark grey, differentiates between water and compressed air on the yellow-numerals scale featured around the outside of the dial, indicating the depth.

Admire New Rotonde de Cartier 42 mm Panther Watch

Jan 09, 2013
Cartier is pleased to unveil its new Rotonde de Cartier 42 mm Panther watch. The novelty demonstrates a unique goldsmith’s technique - granulation. The highly sophisticated artistic craft was born in the first half of the 3rd millennium B.C. Passed down the ages, it was greatly developed during the first millennium in Etruria, having given birth to the signature objects in Etruscan granulation.

Cartier wanted to reinterpret the ancient technique cherishing the idea of breathing new life into rare and even forgotten crafts.

The craftsmen who apply the granulation technique create small balls from threads of gold. They cut the tiny gold balls and heat them over a flame. Then, they assemble the granules one by one and fuse them with the gold plate. This way the craftsmen create the sensual relief of the motif.
