Today, Cheap Omega Replica Watches has announced some very exciting news about how it will prove the performance and accuracy of its timepieces through internally produced movements. In short, Swiss Omega will continue to submit its Observatory’s designated movement to the COSC Observatory certification test, but after passing the COSC certified movement, it will fully test these Coaxial Master Observatory tables through a series of internal tests from Switzerland. Government-controlled METAS agency certification. One of the main reasons is that more and more Omega watches will include the company’s coaxial master chronograph technology, which includes a unique type of escapement and diamagnetic performance. According to the parent company Swatch Group, Omega will provide the most comprehensive and extensive mechanical watch certification method. Let us see what this all means in practice.
Watches, especially high-end watches, sometimes sell certificates issued by third parties – the most common is the COSC Observatory certificate (Rolex is the largest customer of COSC). The COSC Chronometer certification involves accuracy and performance, and others demonstrate the origin, performance or reliability of the relevant timepiece. In recent years, we have seen Omega’s first brightening related to some very exciting developments of its exclusive organic core – the latest news is that the movement with the “main” logo in its name is highly diamagnetic and does not require a soft iron shield. We discuss the coaxial master chronograph movement (in this case) in more detail in the article on the Seamaster 300 Master Co-Axial.
Today, we are working with Omega Replica Watches in Geneva to announce another interesting development: Omega will start working with METAS, the Swiss Federal Metrology Institute, to provide very strict and comprehensive certification for its coaxial master timers, and perhaps more importantly, create a New, highly sophisticated watch certification standards will be offered to other brands that are not even Swatch Group.
More specifically, in terms of authentication, the term “COSC” is certainly familiar to those who are more interested in the accuracy of fine timing. COSC, also known as the official Swiss Observatory Test Institute (or ContrôleOfficiel Suissedes Chronomètres), has long been a household name for watch brands, and they want to emphasize the quality of their watches through certificates: with the Observatory certificate issued by the Institute every day. -4 to +6 seconds accurate.
Less common is that the ISO 3159 standard defines an observatory table – in a nutshell, a chronograph is a timepiece with excellent precision. The COSC will test the submitted motion (placed in a plastic enclosure) for 15 days at five different locations and three different temperatures (8, 23 and 38 degrees Celsius). The exact practice of the METAS certification process is unclear, but what we know is that in many ways it is more rigorous and demanding than the ISO certification process. So what does METAS offer, and how is it different from other certificates?
Although COSC is only responsible for testing watch movements, METAS is a larger organization involving a large number of different sciences that require accurate measurements: METAS participates in “legal metrology” related to weighing instruments, electricity and digital. Other sciences pass chemistry And optics, all the way to frequency and time. Of course, the most important thing for us is the latter: timing.
In fact, METAS operates several commercial clocks and has worked with TempsetFréquence, a laboratory of the University of Neuchâtel (formerly known as the Neuchâtel Observatory) for many years. All of these – as well as larger, although in our case, very irrelevant – work hard because METAS is responsible for spreading the official time of Switzerland. In the watchmaking country, this is a considerable event and shows that the Institute is involved in science related to timing. At a basic level, it is very cool to see a luxury watch manufacturer working with a government science organization or certifying its mechanical watches in the modern era.
Another important difference is that COSC is an independent private company with no shareholders – which means that, technically, no brand should have any influence within the company – and it is audited and certified by a Swiss certification body. . In contrast, METAS is an independent and neutral federal agency, in theory – meaning that its proven watches and movements have been federally accredited by the Swiss government. However, Fake Omega Watches has mentioned that although METAS provides certification, in order to improve efficiency, the test will actually be carried out under the roof of Omega (at least so far, we believe that METAS does not have the facilities to test the watch – unlike the COSC in Geneva). However, METAS will demonstrate the equipment used to perform all certifications.
The “internal certification” of using third-party certified machines and programs theoretically leads to a crack in trust, because the point of third-party authentication is… well, third parties. Best Omega Replica Watches is now responsible for demonstrating that although it will be internally controlled, it will comply with the strict policies and requirements of METAS. Having said that, the relationship between Omega and METAS does not involve a comprehensive internal certification process and control between Patek Philippe and Patek Philippe. This example of Patek Philippe shows that this is not uncommon for companies, and is even highly suspected of controlling the certification process within the Swiss watch industry.
The relationship between Omega Replica and METAS will test Omega’s coaxial main chronograph movement for the foreseeable future, which will be officially certified by the following key factors: METAS will test each coaxial master time chronograph movement The function. The magnetic field is greater than 15,000 Gauss; the function when each watch is exposed to a magnetic field of the same intensity; even the average daily accuracy at different positions and temperatures is between 0 and +5 seconds per day (this is much lower than the COSC Observatory’s -4 To +6 seconds tolerance). In addition, the watch’s power reserve and waterproof performance will be tested. This does not include other actions that may be included in Omega watches.
METAS will also monitor production equipment, which is a giant magnet developed by Omega (weight 1,500 kg or approximately 3,300 lbs) when it comes to Omega testing the diamagnetic performance of its coaxial master timer movement. Designed to produce permanent magnetic fields with over 15,000 Gaussian intensities. In addition to other responsibilities in the certification process, METAS also checks and confirms the intensity of this movement. Basically, the new METAS certification is not only stricter than COSC, but also a specially designed magnetoresistive test.
An interesting aspect involves not only Omega but also the entire Swiss watch industry. Although Omega and METAS have collaborated to create this new certification process, other brands – even those that are not part of the Swatch Group – will be able to have their own watch certification. . As Swatch Group CEO Nick Hayek explained, they hope that through this initiative, other brands will further develop their own sports to make them more accurate and diamagnetic. With this, the Swatch Group followed the story of the late Nicolas Hayek Sr., which began about 15 years ago, when he first proposed (and continued) to significantly reduce the sports suite that ETA provides to the industry. And the number of finished movements. Although this certification process can be said to be a less stringent measure, it may have a positive impact in the medium to long term and further encourage Omega’s high-end competitors to further develop their own calibre.
Today, more than 90% of Omega’s caliber is coaxial motion, of which about 10-15% is coaxial coaxial chronograph (ie, anti-magnetic) motion. Omega promises that all the internally manufactured movements will eventually be “coaxial master timers”. Unlike COSC certification, a very clever feature of METAS certification is that any ATMial Master Chronometer movement with a METAS-certified watch will be able to access the Omega website and use his unique watch serial number to check his/her watch. Specific performance in the certification process. In addition, Omega said that the Coaxial Master Observatory will have an “official certification” label on the watch (of course).
When we discuss highly complex watch movements that claim to provide better timing performance, one (very logical) view that watch enthusiasts often come up with is that the brand can hardly guarantee that the claimed performance will actually be made by the watch. Through this complex certification system in partnership with METAS federal agencies, Omega will be able to provide rigorous and complex certificates to demonstrate the practical availability and reliability of its coaxial master timer movement. It also provides additional value and differentiation to help make Omega timepieces different from their competitors. The new certification for Omega and METAS watches will be available in 2015 and a new production facility near the Omega headquarters in Bien, Switzerland, is being built to accommodate new departments and equipment that should be open in 2016.
