The OMEGA Hour Vision Blue wristwatch is a special edition of the elegant Hour Vision. It has a robust 41 mm stainless steel outer case and is equipped with OMEGA’s Co-Axial caliber 8500, the movement that signaled a revolution in series-produced mechanical watchmaking. The movement can be viewed through the 360° sapphire crystal case body.
Adding distinction to the timepiece is its sun-brushed blue dial designed especially for this Hour Vision Model. It has 18 Ct white gold facetted hour, minute and seconds hands and features a date window at the 3 o’clock position. The OMEGA Hour Vision Blue is presented on a black leather strap.
OMEGA and Daniel Craig team up to support ORBIS’ mission:
OMEGA will work in cooperation with actor and brand ambassador Daniel Craig to support ORBIS International’s flying hospital in its fight against preventable blindness.
Daniel Craig is making plans to join ORBIS on some of its flights in 2011.
“I think that it’s important to do all that we can to draw attention to the work that ORBIS is doing. By visiting some locations with their team, we will be able to make more people aware of the issue of preventable blindness and to let them know how much difference they can make. I’m delighted that OMEGA feels as strongly about this initiative as I do.”
