notes

The Omega PocketWatch 1932 project began with the extraordinary discovery of a number of unassembled chronograph movement kits, which had lain in storage for decades. The kits turned out to hold components for the very movement that had powered the Omega chronographs at the 1932 Olympic Games. The discovery sparked an ambitious and unusual undertaking: a plan to build the commemorative Pocket Watch 1932, using components recovered from the re-discovered assembly kits. Each kit comprised some 180 different parts and sub-assemblies, some of which proved to be in good condition, while others could no longer be used. All of the recovered components would have to be reconditioned, and a number of new tools would be required to assemble them. Clearly, the project represented an enormous challenge, yet the decision was never in doubt: Omega would produce an enhanced replica of the 1932 pocket watch chronograph. The new pocket watch would be based on the 1932 design, built using movements assembled from reconditioned and enhanced components, and completed with a small number of new components manufactured using contemporary watchmaking technologies. A search was begun through company archives for additional material that might prove helpful for the project, and eventually even the original movement drawings from the late 1920’s turned up on microfilm! The enormous care taken by Omega’s master watchmakers in restoring and assembling the recovered movement kits has allowed the Pocket Watch 1932 to achieve official C.O.S.C. certification as a chronometer. Like the original edition, the contemporary Omega Pocket Watch 1932 features an exquisite 57mm enamel dial, crafted using a demanding process that has become a rarity in watchmaking today. The Omega Pocket Watch 1932 tells an extraordinary story of art, emotion, and technology. From the chance discovery of the 1932 design movement kits to the final assembly of 300 exquisitely finished works of art, the Omega Pocket Watch 1932 narrates the history of Omega and the Olympic Games.
