New OMEGA exhibition

OMEGA first launched the Co-axial movement in 1999 and the co-axial movement has continued to evolve with several models being released in recent years.
The exhibition features many watches from the OMEGA museum and also features some newer timepieces that use the Master Co-Axial calibres, which OMEGA describe as “ground-breaking”.
The OMEGA Co-Axial movement continues to be popular and the most recent launch was the Master Co-Axial Calibre in 2014.
Visitors to the Beijing boutique will be able to see the new exhibition until Jun 22, 2014.
