Luxury watch maker Omega has this month launched the new Master Chronometer Certification as well as the very first Master Chronometer watch in the form of the Omega Globemaster pictured above.
The Master Chronometer Certification was first announced approximately a year ago by Omega and the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology.
The Master Chronometer Certification consists of 8 tests carried out over 10 days and each watch must pass a range of criteria that replicate or exceed real-life wearing conditions. With tests including exposure to magnetic fields of 15,000 gauss, and extreme exposure to climate and underwater conditions, Nick Hayek, CEO of the Swatch Group that owns Omega explains :
We all know about the importance of beautiful products, history and innovation. But one other thing is so important. That’s trust. Trust for our consumers. By working with an independent organization such as METAS, we can be transparent for the consumer, and reconfirm that the Swiss watch industry is the leader in precision and innovation
