The world’s first truly anti-magnetic movement continues Omega’s 166-year history of innovation and a legacy of challenges met.

It’s a legacy that includes one of the very first industrialized watch movements – we called it Omega and it performed so well that we gave its name to our entire brand. This legacy also includes the first true divers’ watch and the conquest of the oceans’ depths. In its long history Omega has won more precision trials than any other brand. And of course, in 1965, the Omega Speedmaster was qualified for inclusion on every one of NASA’s manned flights including all six lunar landings.

At the heart of all these adventures, though, has been an unwavering commitment to innovation and an unending pursuit of quality. That dedication led to the industrialization of the Co-Axial escapement in 1999 and only eight years later, the Co-Axial movements that redefined mechanical watchmaking in the 21st century.

In 2013, we created the first truly anti-magnetic watch movement, meeting another one of watchmaking’s great challenges. We are proud that this technology now equips timepieces in our men’s and women’s watch collections and sets a new quality standard in Swiss mechanical watchmaking.

That quality standard has a name: Omega Master Co-Axial.
