In order to commemorate the pioneering and risk-taking spirit of the Omega brand in watchmaking technology, the brand and Cortina jointly presented a grand ‘Omega Co-axial Escapement Exhibition’, the exhibition time is from August 23 to September 1 The venue is located in the exhibition hall of Paragon Shopping Center. It is open daily from 10:30 am to 8:00 pm.

The 9-day exhibition will lead visitors to discover the innovative technology in each of Omega’s superb mechanical timepieces, giving citizens the opportunity to see for themselves every part of a precision timepiece.
The coaxial escapement is the first practical new escapement in more than 250 years, and it has an epoch-making significance for Omega and the world’s mechanical watchmaking industry. The biggest difference of this revolutionary escapement system is that it is not an improvement and improvement of the traditional lever escapement system, but uses a completely different double escapement wheel structure, which fundamentally changes The way of mechanical power transmission. Friction is one of the biggest enemies of mechanical watches. The most significant innovation advantage of the coaxial escapement is that it greatly reduces the friction in the movement, which brings a more permanent and excellent running time performance to the watch.
Following the launch of the first coaxial movement in 1999, Omega has continued to explore the coaxial road, optimized the structure of the coaxial escapement system, and improved the original double-layer coaxial escape wheel to a three-layer type. The coaxial escapement wheel, and the pioneering technology, successfully minimized the friction in the movement, making the performance of the Omega coaxial watch even more extraordinary.
This exhibition not only shows Omega’s long-term technological innovations, but also shows many research results equipped with the latest movements. Many Omega landmark movements and watches will meet you.
Omega’s coaxial development path is confirming the prediction of the inventor of the coaxial escapement, British watchmaker George Daniel: ‘In the 21st century and beyond, it will make mechanical watches even more A watch for many. ‘
