Baselworld 2011: Omega Hour Vision Blue
by Kyle Stults on February 03, 2011

Good watch, Great Cause…

The OMEGA Hour Vision Blue wristwatch is a special edition of the Hour Vision watch, part of Omega’s De Ville collection. The Hour Vision is a neat watch because the beauty of the movement is visible through the sapphire crystal case back as well as through sapphire glass apertures in the side of the watch case (see close-up photo below).  TheHour Vision Blue is also special because it is produced in support of ORBIS International’s fight against preventable blindness in developing countries (see “Did You Know” below).  I applaud OMEGA for its commitment to donate a minimum of a million dollars to ORBIS International over the next four years.  Kudos to OMEGA Ambassador Daniel Craig who is also involved in the effort.

Did you Know?

According to the World Health Organization, 45 million people worldwide are blind — yet 80 percent suffer needlessly due to lack of proper nutrition and lack of access to adequate health care.
