When Omega started out on the adventure that is the co-axial escapement, they embarked on a bit of a journey. The main advantage of the co-axial escapement invented by George Daniels is that it doesn’t need any oil. The locking and acceleration of the balance are done by different stones against different wheels. That is the theory. When Omega made their first movement with the co-axial escapement, they noticed that the teeth of the escape wheel that locks could deform, so they added a tiny amount of oil there to dampen the blow when the pallet stone locks the wheel.
The watch has a crystal case back so you can see the movement. On first sight, it looks exactly like the ETA2892-A2, and there is a good reason for that, as that is the base of this co-axial movement.So far, it looks exactly like the ETA it is based on.
The spot you have to oil to dampen the shock from the pallet stone locking needs a very very tiny drop of HP 1300, and I have a 2ml bottle of the stuff which I won’t be able to use up until it expires in March 2019 😉
I waterproof test, and all is well.
