Omega launched a shock a lot of people’s wrist watch – respect tyrants. Why is the impact of it? The first table is a unique constellation of models under the series, many of its design elements draw Constellation early stage of development in history, it is the middle of last century, so it is directly on the feelings, already people s heart. In addition, since a constellation of Manhattan, Constellation has been in a state of bland, but this constellation statue Pa let Constellation have a new hope, it seems to return to the origin of the constellation series. 2016 Pa statue series adds a new watch – Respect Pa calendar watch, it is the first watch with respect Pa complex functions, since 2015, only out of respect for the basic models Pa. Today, let’s take a look at this new statue Pa Calendar 188.8.131.52.06.001, what kind of style.
There are stories about the history of the constellation series, I think a lot more familiar than my friends list, so here is a brief look good. Constellation is one of the very successful series on the history of Omega, a bit like the Rolex of DD, is a relatively flagship product. Constellation series was born in 1952, the stage was when the mechanical watch industry booming rising stage, but also the post-war economic recovery, as a star in the constellation series marked, equipped with internal Observatory certification movement , becoming both the design and performance on, we are very excellent products, and quickly became popular.
Thereafter, the Omega Constellation appeared a lot of very high-level products, and iconic design, which has several elements, put on today has become a measure of whether you are a senior European fans remember standards, such as word flies, gossip face, happy Alice feet and so on. 1960 Omega great flavor, shining gold plate at that time must be very luxurious, certified chronometer bottom cover also embossed gold astronomical observatory. When the statue Pa series 2015, turned out to have these memories are slowly regain, representing a year of “pie pan” re-return, astronomical observatory relief design appeared on the back.
Respect Pa first calendar watch
When the statue Pa watches released, despite the introduction of a lot of different models, but only change the material or color, with only the function with calendar and non-calendar version version. We always knew, Omega watches will definitely launch more features, follow the previous Constellation watch style and positioning, and it is unlikely to be timed. So, I guess, we guess the phase of the moon , the day display should be the next step will be to add functionality. But I did not think that Omega will directly increase the calendar this feature.
Calendar ordinary calendar watch compared to its features is that you can size each year between January and automatic conversion, except February. That is when the last day of the 30th of September end date will automatically jump to No. 1 instead of 31. This feature eliminates the need to adjust some troubles day of the month, because the adjustment is not very frequently, so easy to overlook.
In addition, Omega interesting point is that the use of traditional month indicates that no window or open a separate sub tray, which is directly in the center of the dial adds a pointer to indicate the month. Benefits are clear and conspicuous defects led to dial scale intensive area.
Was controversial recess polished bezel
Another item statue Pa very representative, but also attracted a public criticism of the element, the groove is polished bezel, usually generally called grooved bezel. In just launched this grooved bezel led to a heated debate, most people think it suspected plagiarism Rolex, but as a century-old, internationally renowned system of watch brands , how could commit such a stupid mistake?
Grooved bezel is actually derived from the earliest structure waterproof case, when the water table has several styles, but their core ideas, are the subject of the table into the possession of a waterproof shell. Which is very famous Rolex Oyster case, Rolex grooved bezel is from the time of the waterproof lid shape. Because the waterproof housing is common at the time of tightening the seal housing, in order to facilitate the rotation of the outside lid have this non-slip flute. Omega also have used the earliest time, so this is actually not the polished grooves bezel Rolex exclusive design, but it uses longer has formed a deep-rooted influence. In addition to Omega, IWC initial water table also have this design, but use earlier than Rolex.
Further, since recess bezel sharp edges and corners, in daily wear, and often because bump or worn, causing the surface a lot of scratches or defects, so, in order to maintain long-lasting beautiful and exquisite bezel, Omega used hard metal tungsten carbide materials processing and production to make it more durable.
To attain certification coaxial Observatory
For a long time in the past years, has been using Omega COSC chronometer certification standards, that is COSC, which is currently the most popular of the movement quality certification system, it has been more than 40 years. However, with the upgrading of science and technology, watchmaking innovation, as well as more complex, more and more brand awareness to just the daily needs have COSC certification has been insufficient to reflect the product’s durability into account, and therefore the strength of the brand began strengthen quality control management. In 2014, Omega joint Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology, introduced a more stringent than COSC certification system – to attain Observatory certification, coaxial movement Omega Seamaster is to attain has coaxial Observatory certification, this certification disclosed in 2015 system 2016 product has certification for the market.
While this watch equipped with Omega 8922 self-winding movement, through METAS eight rigorous tests to ensure that the watch is not only accurate, but also able to withstand 15,000 gauss magnetic interference. This is its most special place, because movement with a magnetic material, so even under the premise of a transparent case back, it can still be very high magnetic properties. Meanwhile, Omega Plan 2019 and achieve OMEGA mechanical watches all magnetic, for the popularization of this real-life electronic equipment has brought great benefits of magnetic interference.
Summary: There is no doubt that the new statue Omega Speedmaster Omega calendar watch combines the latest technological achievements, even though it is hot after a while, seemed calm, but it may well be a very unique watch. Of course, from a personal point of view, it is still place for improvement, indicating the month and some are complicated, taking up more space on the dial.
