True to the burgundy bezel of the original, the new model sports a burgundy ceramic bezel with a tachymeter scale in Ceragold - an innovation in its own right Omega was one of the first brands to master its complex and highly technical machining process when in 1982 it launched the Seamaster Black Tulip in Cermet, a ceramic and titanium carbide alloy "We have developed a range of techniques that enable us to machine watches entirely in ceramic, from the case and dial to the bezel, pushers and crown.

We can bond Liquidmetal to ceramic In 2014 we developed a technique for setting diamonds in ceramic, and we can also grow gold on our bezels." All these innovations are rolled out on several of the brand's latest releases The blue ceramic bezel on the Speedmaster Moonphase is inscribed with a Liquidmetal tachymeter scale.

The Seamaster Diver 300M Chronograph has a blue ceramic dial, while the ceramic bezel on the Seamaster Diver 300M in ceramic and titanium features a magnificent tachymeter scale in Grand Feu enamel "Omega has been able to produce orange ceramic since 2014," notes Gregory Kissling "Knowing how to make black, white, even blue ceramic is one thing.

Making coloured ceramic is a real challenge Whatever the colour, ceramic has opened many doors from a design perspective, such as the laser-engraved waves on the Diver ceramic dials Ceramic is high in tension and this gives a much sharper, cleaner outline.

Also, whereas a lacquered dial will never be perfect, with ceramic it's possible to achieve a uniform colour." It's this attention to detail that makes all the difference, in a perfect alchemy of beauty and longevity. . Source
