BASELNEWS 2011The OMEGA Ladymatic: Best mechanical watch movement in the world
The new subtly elegant stainless steel OMEGA Ladymatic has a white ceramic ring between an outer decorative wave and the inner case body. Its bezel is dramatically paved with 184 full cut snow-set diamonds with a combined weight of 1.04 carat. The face of the watch is highlighted by the supernova pattern emanating from the centre of the extra-white mother-of-pearl dial.
There is a diamond-polished date window at the 3 o’clock position and the other eleven hours are marked by single-cut diamonds with a total weight of 0.12 carat. The Super-LumiNova-coated hands are crafted from 18 Ct white gold. The crown is distinguished with a briolette-cut diamond with a weight of 0.08 carat.
A mechanical masterpiece
The polished caseback has a sapphire crystal that reveals the Co-Axial calibre 8520/8521, the best women’s mechanical watch movement in the world. At the heart of the movement is the Co-Axial escapement, the component that in 1999 signalled a revolution in how mechanical wristwatches are made. Each movement is equipped with OMEGA’s exclusive Si 14 silicon balance spring, an innovation that makes it more resistant to external shocks and environmental disturbances. The OMEGA Ladymatic is water-resistant to 10 bar/ 100 metres / 330 feet.
