Since 1848, Omega has been making history and establishing themselves as one of the world’s greatest watch brands. Known for their quality and innovation, this popular brand was even worn by the world most renowned spy, 007, James Bond himself.
Many of the current collections, including the Constellation, Speedmaster, and Omega Seamaster, are firmly rooted in Omega's heritage. They were all originally produced between 1948 and 1960, yet they are all still in production today.
Out of this world recognition
Omega was the first wristwatch worn on the moon; Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong wore their Omega watches into space during the Apollo 11 mission; however, Armstrong had to leave his inside the lunar module as a back-up timing device. Back in July 1969, the Omega Speedmaster was worn by astronauts, and has been the choice of watch for every lunar mission since.
Since 1932, Omega has also been the official timing device for the Olympic Games, and the brand has even received the Olympic Cross of Merit for the contribution made to sport. Timekeeping capability, accuracy and durability are all synonymous with Omega’s brand, which is why they are continually chosen to contribute to these historic moments in time.
Since the 1990s, Omega has adopted and developed George Daniel's renowned Co-Axial movement, in order to produce one of the most reliable movements with greater accuracy and longer service intervals. In doing so, this has helped Omega set a new benchmark to for its competitors.
