Omega has created a limited edition Omega Hour Vision Blue, part of Omega’s De Ville collection in support of ORBIS International. Orbis is an charity organization that fights against preventable blindness. Actor Daniel Craig who is the ambassador of Omega will be closely involved in working on this project.
This watch is distinct from others with its sun-brushed blue dial designed especially for the appropriately named Hour Vision Blue. It has 18 ct white gold hours, minutes and seconds hands and a date window at the 3 o’clock position. Also, it has the 360-degree see-through case, which is 41 mm in diameter. The Omega Hour Vision Blue is presented on a black leather strap.
Inside the watch is an Omega Calibre 8500 automatic co-axial movement that has been COSC Chronometer certified. The watch is water resistant to 100 metres. Omega Hour Vision Blue is an ideal watch for travelers as the hour hand can be adjusted independently of the minute and seconds hand.
We don`t know yet how many of these special Blue versions of the Hour Vision watch will be produced. It is important that one part of the money be donated. It would be nice if other well known companies follow their example.
