The staffs and pivots in the new OMEGA Master Co-Axial calibres are made made from a non-magnetic material called Nivagauss and the steel plates found in the Co-Axial movement have been replaced with non-magnetic plates. Further more, the spring of the shock absorber has been crafted from an anamorphous material.

In 2007, OMEGA introduced its revolutionary, state-of-the-industry Co-Axial calibre 8500, featuring technology that redefined the way mechanical watch movements were manufactured in the 21st century. This year, the brand has announced the “evolution of the revolution” with its new Master Co-Axial calibres, marking a dramatic step forward in terms of the robustness and reliability of the brand’s flagship mechanical movement, both in men’s and women’s watches.

Magnetic resistance of over 15,000 gauss

The OMEGA Master Co-Axial calibres are distinguished from their predecessors by their ability to resist magnetic fields greater than 15,000 gauss. The first important step toward creating an anti-magnetic movement began in 2008 with the launch of the Si14 silicon balance spring. The staffs and pivots in these upgraded calibres are made of Nivagauss™; the steel plates found in the Co-Axial movement have been replaced with non-magnetic plates; and the spring of the shock absorber has been crafted from an anamorphous material.

OMEGA ladies’ and gents’ collection

OMEGA premiered its exclusive anti-magnetic technology in 2013 with its Seamaster Aqua Terra > 15’000 Gauss wristwatch. With the Master Co-Axial mechanical movements, the innovation has been extended to timepieces in the brand’s gents’ and ladies’ collections.
