Omega caliber 8806 specifications

The Omega caliber 8806 was presented in 2017 and has is very similar to the caliber 8800 which was released the year before, in 2016. The main difference between these is that the caliber 8806 does not feature a date function like the 8800.Omega caliber 8806

At its release in 2017, the caliber was presented in the new Railmaster from Omega. Initially, Omega didn’t flaunt with the caliber due to the fact that the Railmaster has a solid case back (and must have due to a sapphire crystal can compromise the anti-magnetism of the watch – which is the purpose of the model).

The Omega Caliber 8806 is not a certified chronometer (COSC) but instead has a METAS certificate. METAS is the ”Swiss national metrology institute”.

Omega describes METAS as following:

“To own a MASTER CHRONOMETER is to be confident that your watch has been certified not once – but twice! The 8 stringent METAS tests your timepiece must face to earn the title MASTER CHRONOMETER can only begin with movements already certified by COSC (Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute). And it’s a completely transparent testing process. If you want to know how your own watch performed during the 8 METAS tests, you can view the exact results by entering your certificate number online”Omega warranty card

The movement is equipped with a co-Axial escapement and displays hours, minutes, and seconds. It is, of course, self-winding, equipped with a bidirectional rotor. The purpose of the Railmaster in which it was originally released was to withstand high magnetic fields. Therefore, the caliber 8806 is resistant to magnetic fields reaching 15,000 gauss. The movement is, of course, an Omega in-house movement.

The caliber beats at 25,200 VPH and has 35 jewels. Internally, it is built with a titanium balance wheel, silicon hairspring, Nivachoc shock absorbers, and screws on the balance wheel for fine adjustment of the watch’s accuracy. Furthermore, it has a free sprung-balance with silicon balance spring and is rhodium plated finish with Geneva waves in arabesque.OMEGA caliber Omega caliber 8806
