Omega-Co-Axial-Chronometer

You can look but you probably won’t be able to touch, still less get to own one of these fine haute horology timepieces from Omega. The Central Tourbillon Co-Axial Platinum, Omega’s luxury watch will be available only in a very limited quantity; only 18 are planned to be manufactured and sold.

The watch combines complex tourbillon technology with dazzling design elements. The movement has a luxurious sun-brushed and circular graining finish with an anthracite galvanic processing; its bridges and mechanisms are hand polished.

The rotor with its sapphire plate has been newly designed and is metallised with the words “Limited Edition” and the watch’s individual serial number (out of 18). The Skeleton Tourbillon Co-Axial Platinum Limited Edition is equipped with a Breguet balance spring.

OMEGA’s exclusive Co-Axial calibre 2636 is enhanced by the finest escapement which has re-defined the way mechanical wristwatches are being made. The complex movement is assembled from 320 individual parts.

The remarkable Central Tourbillon calibre is housed in a platinum case and comes on a black alligator bracelet.

Each skeletonised central tourbillon is COSC-certified, but are also valued for their beauty and the complexity of the Tourbillon mechanism. Every component in the movement and case is produced exclusively for the central tourbillons.
