The major irony of silicium parts (diamond-coated or not) is that they focus on improving a technology that is no longer strictly necessary. Owning a mechanical watch is as much emotional as it is practical. While I don’t think that wrist watches are no longer necessary (duh), I do agree that technically speaking quartz regulation based Omega watches could completely Replica Omega Speedmaster mechanical watches if necessary. Nevertheless, mechanical watches are more interesting and fun to own almost all of the time in comparison to quartz.

In Switzerland, especially in the traditional locuses of Omega watch making, the culture is mired in mechanical watches. A place that values tradition as much a Switzerland does, no longer making things they have been making for hundreds of years just isn’t an idea they seriously entertain. It isn’t that everybody in Switzerland wants to make Omega watches, but they seem to feel extremely comforted knowing that enough people are. So given that reality brands like Replica Tag Heuer Carrera want to make the best watches possible. Part of that seems to be for sales, and part of that seems to be to impress the neighbors.

I’ve been to a lot of Omega watch manufacturers and one of the major themes at Omega seems to be technology. Slowly but surely the brand is bringing in-house machines and capabilities previously relied upon by suppliers. That doesn’t mean Omega is totally independent, but the more you do in house, the more reliable Replica Tag Heuer Formula 1 products tend to become. The result is an interesting mixture (not uncommon in modern brands) of mixing traditional techniques with modern technology. The watch maker and his or her desk remains, but they play nice with electronics next to their screwdrivers.

Patrik knows the various Omega buildings and production rooms very well. He’s been at the brand for a while and is as interested in new products as he is production efficiency. Nevertheless, Omega, and the technical guy in charge of little things like the watch and implementing new technology is Omega. We all met together and talked watches, the business, and the future of Omega – you can hear more about that in the video.
