Omega Seahorse Ocean Universe Escapement Red Gold Watch
Omega launched the Hippocampal Ocean Universe Co-Axial Chronograph for the first time in 2005. The bold and bold orange-red used on its dial and bezel has become one of the most important features of this model, causing an unprecedented sensation in the global watch industry. In 2006, due to the enthusiastic pursuit of the market, Omega launched the second marine universe series-column-wheel chronograph. Today, the hippocampus is welcoming the birth of a red gold watch series.
The hippocampus is an important element in the watch culture inherited by Omega, and it is also the most sporty series in Omega watches. For more than 50 years, the history that has been closely related to the ocean has made it a favorite of the eyebrows on the arena. American swimmer Michael Phelps and British female navigator Ellen MacArthur are all hippocampus wrists Loyal fans of the table. The Hippocampus series watches are fully capable of meeting the most severe environmental challenges at sea. The strong waterproof case and one-way bezel are unique characteristics. The smooth chain bracelet, clear and easy-to-read dial, one-way bezel and embossed hippocampus logo engraved on the back of the 18K red gold case, which are tightly stitched, all remind us of the design source of the Ocean Universe series.
The case of the Hippocampus Ocean Universe Escapement Red Gold Series watch has two sizes of 42 mm and 45.5 mm, of which the 45.5 mm watch is even more exquisite and gorgeous. Compared with ordinary professional diving watches, the two chronograph watches have added more personalized functions and are waterproof to a depth of 600 meters. These professional diving chronographs also have many other detailed features-a tight crown and case back, a Helium Escape Valve, a tubular unidirectional rotating bezel and highly clear hands.
The helium exhaust valve is located at 10 o’clock, and the word ‘He’ (helium chemical element symbol) is embossed on it. The helium exhaust valve helps the helium particles that have penetrated into the watch due to the water pressure during the dive to be discharged when the pressure is reduced, thereby enhancing the protection of the watch. The red gold timing button under the black aluminum ring can still work normally at a depth of 600 meters. At the same time, the double-sided anti-reflective arched wear-resistant crystal watch makes the dial clear and easy to read.
The previous Ocean Universe series only has a sporty matte dial to choose from, while the new red gold series uses an elegant all-black semi-matte dial.

The chronograph’s calendar window is located between 4 and 5 o’clock, while other models’ calendar windows are located above the 3 o’clock position. In order to match the red of the arched arrow hour, minute and second hands, the luminous material uses white instead of green, which was previously commonly used.
Small seconds dial, 12-hour and 30-minute chronograph small dials are located at 9 o’clock, 6 o’clock and 3 o’clock, respectively, and use gold as the background color. The black aluminum 60-minute track on the unidirectional rotating bezel is also decorated in red gold.
The chronograph is equipped with a 3313 self-winding movement with a power reserve of 52 hours. The column wheel mechanism complements the performance of the chronograph. When the chronograph function is activated, it can ensure that the second hand moves smoothly, and provides accurate stop and reset functions without affecting the main chronograph performance of the watch.
Non-chronograph models have a 2500 automatic winding movement. All marine universe red gold series are equipped with a coaxial escapement. This unique Omega technology can greatly reduce the friction of the watch mechanical movement. , Overall improve the long-term stability and accuracy of the movement. Both of these movements have been certified by the Swiss Official Astronomical Observatory (COSC), and the cardless balance with hairspring ensures the watch’s precise timing quality. Although the new case back is hard and flat, the rhodium-plated movement exudes a luxurious quality: the bridge is spirally polished, decorated with Geneva patterns and gold-plated engraving. Exquisite round, fluted and gold-plated patterns. Embossed hippocampus logo on the spiral case back.
