3… 2… 1… 다시 새롭게 선보이는 오메가의 아이코닉 칼리버

오메가가 새롭게 선보이는 아이코닉 칼리버 321

많은 시계 애호가는 재출시를 원하는 무브먼트로 단연 오메가 칼리버 321를 손꼽을 것이다. 이 견고하고 우아한 크로노그래프 무브먼트는 1940년대에 첫선을 보인 이후로 가장 인기 있는 모델로 전 세계 시계 수집가들의 많은 사랑을 받아오고 있다. 칼리버 321이 마지막으로 제작된 지 50년이 지난 지금, 오메가의 아이코닉 무브먼트가 새롭게 부활한다.

Known for its beautifully intricate design, the original Calibre 321 earned a notable place in history. It was used in a variety of models including the Speedmaster ST 105.003 (the model first tested and qualified by NASA and worn by astronaut Ed White during the first American spacewalk) and the Speedmaster ST 105.012 (the first watch worn on the moon).

Reintroducing a movement with such an important reputation must therefore be done with the utmost exactness. For the Calibre 321 project, OMEGA utilised a dedicated team of experts who worked efficiently over two years and in total secrecy to bring the movement to life. The small group was composed of researchers, developers and historians, as well as the finest craftsmen and experienced watchmakers.

Using the 2nd generation Calibre 321 as a reference, the OMEGA team compiled extensive historical research and original plans to reconstruct the movement as accurately as possible. Going even further, they also used digital scanning technology to see inside the true Speedmaster ST 105.003 timepiece that astronaut Eugene “Gene” Cernan wore on the moon during the Apollo 17 mission in 1972.

As a result, even the most unique and iconic parts of the Calibre 321 have been reborn in respect to their authentic specifications. The new movements will now go into production at OMEGA’s HQ site in Bienne. Uniquely, all aspects of creation will be undertaken within a dedicated Calibre 321 workshop. For each movement, the assembly, as well as the watch head and bracelet assembly will be performed by the same watchmaker. Watch fans can expect more developments and news in the coming months.
