STORY – That Time OMEGA Tested a Prototype Seamaster At An Insane 160,000 Gauss Magnetic Field…

Recently, in a long narrative , we went through the intricate details of against attraction in watchmaking, represented by the brand that essentially masters this idea, Omega, and their hyper-severe testing and confirmation method, the Master Chronometer . You felt that the 15,000 Gauss opposition of these watches was at that point impressive… Wait for this: Omega really tried a watch, a model of a Seamaster Aqua Terra, to the crazy attractive field of 160,000 Gauss. What’s more, in all honesty, it survided and it is presently uncovered at the Omega Museum, as a component of the region of against attractive watchmaking.

As of now, Omega has primarily promoted on the 15,000 Gauss opposition of their Master Chronometer watches, a generally amazingly great obstruction that is accomplished not by presenting the defense antimagnetic but rather by having built up a whole development that can’t be influenced by these noteworthy attractive fields. This development is named the Master Chronometer and it requires its own testing system and its own affirmation, grown along with METAS ( the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology ). To see more, investigate the video below:

Yet, you most likely know the arrangement with regards to break records. To accomplish an obstruction of x, you need to test to a strength of x+50. As you can envision, to ensure that the watches commercialized with an opposition of 15,000 Gauss are truly accomplishing what is asserted, Omega more likely than not done tests to a lot higher attractive fields… And they did.

But what really is a 15,000 Gauss (or 1,5 tesla) attractive field? As a significant degree for magnetic fields, 15,000  Gauss is approxately what you’ll find in an attractive reverberation imaging framework (MRI), or the strength of a coin-sized magnet that can lift more than 9kg.

So now figure this: 

With just interest and information as a main priority, the focused energy tests occurred in 2016 at the Laboratoire National des Champs Magnetiques Intenses (LNCMI) in Grenoble, France. At LNCMI, the solitary office appropriate for such a watch analyze, the watch was exposed to an uncommon 160,000 gauss (16 tesla). Unbelievably, the watch worked consummately during and after openness to this gigantic attractive field.

So what implies 160,000 Gauss or 16 tesla? All things considered, it is the specific field needed to levitate a frog (don’t ask… I don’t know by the same token. This is the sort of results you’l find while looking on Google). All the more truly, it is more that the attractive field the most developed experimental magnetic reverberation imaging framework (utilized for research on molecules) can produce… And it’s over the third of the most remarkable ceaseless attractive field at any point made by humanity. So to say, conditions where you don’t need your own watch to be placed… at all!

This model watch is presently remembered for a dedicated area about anti-attractive watchmaking in the Omega Museum, backtracking Omega’s incredible accomplishments nearby enemy of attractive movements. It centers around a large number of the brand’s advancement against attractive watches and empowers guests to comprehend this significant piece of the brand’s legacy and future.
