Omega Introduces Milestone 1941 Watch to Join Museum Collection

Dec 14, 2009
The Omega Museum Collection welcomes the ninth member - the “Milestone 1941” Collector’s Piece. The brand has created the collection that would reflect its historic values and correspond to its state-of-the-art watchmaking standards. Omega annually chooses one classic watch that was introduced more fifty years ago and recreates it with an excellent design and innovative features.

The new “Milestone 1941” watch has been inspired by the brand’s reference “CK 2080”, a timepiece in stainless steel that joined the world of watchmaking in 1938. It enjoyed great success among high-ranking military officers. The specific watch that served as the base for the ninth timepiece of the collection was introduced in 1941 and sold at the Omegamania Auction held in 2007.

The new Omega watch boasts the brand’s groundbreaking Co-Axial technology and is sculptured from exquisite materials.

The case of the watch measures 38 mm in diameter and is crafted from 18K white gold. It is coupled with a black alligator leather strap fitted with an 18K white gold buckle.

The “Milestone 1941” watch accommodates an exclusive manual-winding chronograph movement - the Omega calibre 3203. The precision of the movement is crowned by the COSC- chronometer certification. It incorporates the Co-Axial escapement with a free sprung balance, and a column wheel chronograph mechanism.

The varnished black dial of the Omega watch features a telemetric scale on its first outer ring that has kilometers per hour graduations, a minute track on the second outer ring, as well as a “snail” tachymeter scale presented on the inner ring based on 1000 units per hour.

The hour numerals and indexes are provided with Super-LumiNova coating. The hours and minutes are indicated by classic white skeleton hands, also coated with Super-LumiNova. The dial boasts perfect legibility under any light conditions.

The dial is completed with two sub-dials: a 30-minute chronograph counter and small seconds counter at 3 and 9 o’clock respectively.

The Omega Museum Collection Collector’s Piece Number 9, “Milestone 1941” is presented in a special museum box. As Watches.InfoNIAC.com found out, the timepiece will be available in a limited number of 1941 pieces.
