Brief History of Omega Watches

Omega is a company rich in history. In 1848, Louis Brandt opened a small watch workshop in La Chaux-de-Fonds, a small village in Switzerland. After he died in 1879, his sons took over his watch business. They launched a timepiece part of the 19-ligne caliber movement called the “Labrador.” “Labrador” was the base on which Omega watches would revolutionize watchmaking. 19-ligne caliber was known for its accuracy and reliability. 

In the 20th century, Omega watches were used worldwide by explorers, adventurers, and the military. In fact, the Omega Speedmaster is currently the only watch qualified by NASA for human spaceflight missions. It’s the first watch (and only watch) ever worn on the moon. It’s also the official watch worn by James Bond.

Today, the brand is one of the most prestigious in the world. The watches are known for their quality, precision, and innovative design. Much as they were when the brand initially launched.
