Omega 1940s 14k Yellow Gold Chronometre
Omega has a long and storied history of producing precision timepieces, and the Omega Chronomètre is one of the most iconic models in the company's history. The first Omega Chronomètre was introduced in 1894, and it quickly gained a reputation for being one of the most accurate watches of its time.
At the heart of the Omega Chronomètre was the company's proprietary movement, which was designed and built entirely in-house. The movement featured a number of innovative features, including a bimetallic balance wheel, which allowed the watch to maintain accurate timekeeping even in extreme temperatures.
Over the years, Omega continued to refine and improve its Chronomètre movements, and the company's watches became increasingly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts around the world. In 1931, Omega introduced the first wristwatch to be officially certified as a chronometer, which is a watch that has been tested and certified by an independent organization for accuracy and precision.
