VALUE ADD

Singapore Tatler Jewels & Time - - Spotlight -

En­dow­ing their time­pieces with tech­ni­cal el­e­ments that en­hance chrono­met­ric pre­ci­sion, these watch­mak­ers give added guar­an­tee on ac­cu­racy by sub­ject­ing their time­keep­ers to ad­di­tional per­for­mance tests

The quest for pre­ci­sion is a re­lent­less one, chased by these watch­mak­ers who are go­ing the ex­tra mile to put their watches through ex­tra paces to fur­ther im­prove their per­for­mance. If you thought that the guide­lines set by the Of­fi­cial Swiss Chronome­ter Test­ing In­sti­tute (COSC) were stel­lar, check out the ones set by Rolex, Omega and Glashütte Orig­i­nal. In end-2014, Omega an­nounced that all of its watches would even­tu­ally be cer­ti­fied by an in­de­pen­dent body called METAS (Swiss Fed­eral In­sti­tute of Metrol­ogy), en­dow­ing its al­ready im­pres­sive Mas­ter Chronome­ter move­ments with fur­ther guar­an­tee, by test­ing their mag­netic re­sis­tance. Rolex, too, has up­dated the terms of its in-house Su­perla­tive Chronome­ter Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, by en­sur­ing that both the un­cased move­ment and the en­tire watch meet all its re­quire­ments. Ger­man watch­maker Glashütte Orig­i­nal has launched an in­house cer­tifi­cate that comes with its lat­est Cal­i­bre 36-equipped Sen­a­tor Ex­cel­lence time­pieces.
