While so far everything feels pretty old-school about this watch (other than the modern size), the movement is state-of-the-art: the in-house Omega caliber 8807. This movement is automatic, utilizes a co-axial escapement, and is a METAS-certified Master Chronometer. It also runs at 3.5 Hz, in 35 jewels, and is resistant to up to 15,000 gauss of magnetism (in no small part due to the silicon balance spring). And as one last technical flourish, the balance is free sprung too. The finishing is exactly what you’d expect on one of Omega’s movement. It’s thorough, but not over-the-top. There are broad waves on the plates and bridges, blackened screws, barrel, and balance wheel, and both the balance bridge and winding rotor are 18k Sedna gold.
