Omega Caliber 9300 Assembly Line - Visit ReportA week ago Bert Buijsrogge and I visited the assembly line of the much talked-about Omega Caliber 9300 movement. This in-house developed movement was introduced during BaselWorld 2011 within the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Chronograph plus the Omega Speedmaster Co-Axial Caliber 9300.Since 2007, Omega is emphasizing their in-house developed Co-Axial movements and started by equipping the De Ville and Seamaster models with their caliber 8500. Starting in 1999 already, Omega started while using Co-Axial escapement in movement therefore, but (mainly) depending on existing ETA movements.For this in-house column wheel chronograph caliber 9300 movement with Co-Axial escapement, Omega made huge investments to industrialize the production of this movement. Because of this Omega is capable of producing their in-house movements (caliber 8xxx and 930x movements) on large scale for their watch collections. This current year alone - 2014 - Omega came up with 70 new reference numbers during BaselWorld, all fitted with the in-house developed movement.Omega Caliber 9300With our Speedy Tuesday feature, almost all of the caliber 9300 movements we view are employed within the Omega Speedmaster collection of course. As you can see in the photo above, the caliber 9300 is fitted in stainless-steel and bi-color chronograph models. The Speedmaster replica watches in gold hold the caliber 9301, which may have another (gold) rotor.The mass of the rotor is extremely similar though, caused by a specific material about the rotor with the 9300 it is quite near the weight with the gold rotor (with the caliber 9301 movement). Aside from the rotor from the caliber 9301, the bridge is additionally manufactured from gold.Silicon (Si14) is used for that balance spring. Even though the balance wheel also has this black colored, it isn't really crafted from silicon. Niche wheel is made away from a particular alloy and received a DLC treatment. The Omega caliber 9300/9301 movements use a nice "Ctes de Geneve in Arabesque" finish.During our holiday to the assembly brand of the Omega caliber 9300 movement (we didn't see 9301 movements, this is probably since they're assembled on specific order in order that they are processed batch by batch of the form of movement), replica hublot white watches we asked regardless of if the Co-Axial escapement (now Many years old) is a true improvement when compared to regular escapements utilized in - as an example - ETA movements. Although we're struggling to verify their answer, we've no reason at all or indication to doubt a better solution with the responsible guy who demonstrated around: less friction is less usage which ends in longer intervals between services. Because we get our share of emails from Speedmaster fans around the world, we didn't hear details while using Omega caliber 9300 movements to date (in comparison to some in the past - early 2000s - with all the caliber 330x movements Omega used where issues were raised right away).Through the official 2011 Omega Caliber 9300 blog post:With any watch escapement, energy should be transmitted for the oscillator; this energy maintains the oscillator's frequency . The impulses in a Swiss lever escapement involve the wheel tooth sliding over the inclined top of the pallet. This sliding movement generates considerable friction, making optimal lubrication vital if the escapement is always to function correctly. On the other hand, the OMEGA Co-Axial escapement transmits energy using lateral impulses. The lesser contact surfaces plus the pushing motion, rather than lever escapement's sliding motion, significantly reduce the friction inside the escapement; thus there is less deterioration of the lubrication, producing longer service intervals.Our visit lead us to Grenchen, the spot that the production facility in the Omega caliber 9300 can be found. After having a short introduction with your guide, who immediately asks us by what we know with regards to the caliber 9300 movement :), we don our white coats and hair caps so that you can protect the assembly means of the movements we have been gonna see.There we were guided right away to your end from the assembly line. All of the movement parts were already finished and manufactured if they are available in. This Omega caliber 9300 has a robotic voice that can guide each movement from beginning to end along some stops where employees assemble parts, perform measurements (while some measurements are finished automatically using very advanced laser technologies), perform adjustments and lastly assemble the complete movement. Using their advanced equipment for testing and measuring assists them to help the best tolerances possible.We had arrived amazed to find out how well-organized and efficient the entire assembly process has been set-up. Also, all of the specific equipment familiar with monitor, measure and calibrate has been in-house designed and developed likewise. All staff is flexible and might perform activities on multiple manual-workstations, since they were called.After an Omega Caliber 9300 movement have all stages and steps, it truly is being boxed and offered because of its chronometer testing at COSC rolex replica . COSC requires the movement to possess a specific dial that's usable for them to do the visual checks home the chronometer rating. After Omega receives their movements again, that dial and hands are now being removed obviously. For the reason that very last stage Omega adds the rotor towards the watch. Apparently a rotor is just not essential for COSC to do their tests, the movement will be just manually wound.An appealing overview was put in the hallway with the Omega caliber 9300 assembly department, showing all the Co-Axial movements so far. Beginning from the Omega caliber 2500(A) until the Omega caliber 9300 and also the different steps of innovation which are made.In the end Bert and i also were motivated to partly assemble an Omega caliber 9300 movement, which is: adding the 2 barrels along with the bridge that covers them (and making sure they'd work). Although we managed, it absolutely was slightly task that required a large amount of concentration as being the parts are so small , sometimes difficult to grasp having a tool. Photos on this activity is so visible on our Instagram account (@fratelloreplica watches).We would like to thank Omega in Bienne for having us and permitting us accessibility to the caliber 9300 assembly line in Grenchen. We had been quite astonished by the high-tech processes and a higher level automation master ii watches . That it was like travelling inside a laboratory. The analysis Omega placed in developing this movement along with the equipment to get it assembled, testes and measured is of your unbelievable dangerous.A lot of Omega's Co-Axial movements can be found here. replica buy a tag watch
