Omega Master Chronometer, raising standards

Representing a higher quality of watchmaking, precision and performance are tested like never before.

In 2015, the brand raised industry standards with the introduction of Master Chronometer certification. Each watch now faces much stricter testing criteria, meaning that customers will only receive the very highest level of precision, performance and magnetic-resistance.

To earn the Master Chronometer name, a watch and its movement must endure 8 tests approved by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS). Performed over 10 days, these replicate real-life wearing conditions and demonstrate resistance to magnetic fields of 15,000 gauss. If it doesn’t reach the pass mark required, it will never reach your wrist.
