    • Throughout every watch brand’s history, mistakes are inevitable but, sometimes, they cost a company more than anyone could have imagined. Launched in 1968, Omega’s cal. 1000 movement collection was intended to replace the old-school but widely revered Omega calibre 550 and it’s relatives. Soon, the replacement became known for lower quality construction, and poor reliability whilst being Omega’s last truly in-house standard movement. But have we all been unfair to this historic movement behind some of the most iconic dials in the business? In this episode, I’d like to explore just why the calibre 1000 failed and whether it deserved such condemnation. Read full articles and listen to podcasts at http://www.watchchronicler.com
