At the very ripe age of just 23, in 1848, Louis Brandt began his journey to become one of the world’s most famous manufacturers of exquisite watches. However, it wasn’t until 1903 that the brand became what we know it as today - Omega. The development of the first Omega watch was exciting and was considered to be one of the world’s most accurate and easily repairable timepieces of its era.

Not long after its first successful timepiece, the company was responsible for a number of major breakthroughs, including being the first to create a minute repeater wristwatch. At this time, Omega was selling a phenomenal amount of watches – more than 100,000 per year. With sales like that, it wasn’t long before the company became one of the major worldwide competitors in the watch industry.

While there are many high-end watchmakers around, Omega is a brand that goes beyond way beyond the standard. Not only do these exude class and elegance, but they’re also made using some of the highest quality components, making them extremely reliable too. And it’s their reputation for reliability that helped the company achieve all of what it has so far.

Several Accolades to Date

Having been around for such a long time, it’s of no real surprise that Omega should have a few accomplishments under its belt. However, those that it can brag about, are pretty impressive, and hard to beat. Here are just a few examples:

  • 1947: A great start. This year saw the introduction of the first tourbillon wristwatch of the world.
  • 1995: The start of a beautiful friendship. This year was the year when Omega became officially affiliated with James Bond movies. In Goldeneye, Bond was seen wearing an Omega Seamaster Quartz Professional, then, in later films, you see him spirting an Omega Seamaster Professional Chronometer.
  • 1997: The year a deal a sponsorship deal was brokered with the Need for Speed brand as it becomes the official timekeeper for the game.
  • 1999: marked the development of the Calibre 2500 – the first mass-produced wristwatch to feature the coaxial escapement, using radial friction in its functioning as opposed to a sliding mechanism.
  • 2006-2016: The Olympic years. Omega has been the official timekeeper of both the Winter and Summer Olympics multiple times in the past decade.  

As you can see, there are several ways in which Omega sets itself apart from the crowd. The quality is superb, the designs are amazing, and the range is big enough to cater to most people’s taste. ⬩
