Holding true to their watchmaking expertise, OMEGA introduce the new Speedmaster Chronoscope.
Blending together two traditional Greek expressions – “Chronos” meaning time and “Scope” meaning to observe – the Chronoscope typically measures the duration between two points or events. OMEGA’s new 43 mm Chronoscope performs this function beautifully on multiple levels.
For fans of OMEGA’s legendary Speedmaster family, there are plenty of unique details to enjoy. Most prominently, captivating dials printed with incredible three timing scales – the tachymeter, telemeter and pulsometer.
Measuring speed based on distance on a tachymeter, the Chronoscope can tell you how fast you are going, based on how far you have travelled. As the scale measures the average travel time between two specific points, it makes no difference whether your journey is in miles or kilometres.
With the telemeter, the Chronoscope can measure distance based on speed of sound. With a simple, yet intelligent two-step process, OMEGA’s precision tool can tell you exactly how far you are from something that is visible and audible, such as a lightning storm.
The pulsometer can measure a human’s heartbeat. Thanks to this 30-pulse-per-minute scale, you can measure your own or someone else’s heartbeat!
This heritage-inspired collection pays tribute to OMEGA’s chronograph watches of the 1940s, with dials in the detailed “snail” design. A nod to the 20th century also makes it mark on the leaf-shaped hands of each watch, as well as the “spiral” track pattern that elegantly runs beneath the Arabic numerals on the dial.
Visible through the sapphire crystal on the caseback is a manual-winding OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 9908 with a beautiful finish. The Calibre 9908 boasts a power reserve of 60 hours.
As a certified Master Chronometer, both the movement and the watch have proven their worth under the toughest conditions, having emerged from the industry’s strictest tests, set by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS).
