What is the Spirate System?

Spirate System is a new technology that makes it possible for Omega calibers equipped with the system to be more finely regulated for accuracy. The system includes a new balance spring (hairspring aka spiral) design, balance wheel, balance bridge, and ultra-fine tuning device.

When was the Spirate System released?

The Spirate System was announced on January 26, 2023 with the launch of the aforementioned Speedy Super Racing model.

Spirate System Benefits:

Because of this new spring design, the movement can achieve ultra-fine regulating via the graduated tuner device attached to the balance bridge. This fine tuning allows watchmakers to regulate the timing of a Spirate System watch to 0/+2 seconds per day – a 3 seconds improvement over Omega’s non-Spirate caliber 9900 which already performs within the average rate of 0/+5 sec/day.
