Omega Seamaster Replica MikrotourbillonS ChronographLast years winner in the Best Sport Watch Category with its revolutionary Carrera Miktotimer flying 1000 Chronograph created another groundbreaking piece that has the potential to bring the renowned Swiss watchmaker the second award in a row. A MikrotourbillonS, which is part of Omega Seamaster Replica's famous "Micro" platform (a dual frequency mechanism with two barrels), is the brand's first watch to feature a tourbillon. This masterpiece features two tourbillons. One controls the time, and the other controls chronograph.
This tourbillon rotates every 5 seconds, achieving a precision of 1/100th of a sec. by ensuring that the chronograph escapement oscillates at a frequency of 360,000 beats/hour (50hz). It is the fastest tourbillon on the planet. The tourbillon which regulates the timekeeping mechanism rotates once per minute. You can see that the MikrotourbillonS is a mechanism with two barrels and two escapements. This is a characteristic of all Mikro mechanisms. The dial of this extraordinary watch, which is half-opened and partially revealing its mechanism, is distinctive. The MikrotourbillonS is a perfect combination of sport, luxury, and advanced technology. It features a red gold case and a tantalum dial.
