A brief history of Omega
Omega was founded in 1848, it started in a small Swiss village called La Chaux – De – Fonds by 23-year-old Louis Brandt. Thirty-one years later, Brandt died, leaving the business in the care of his two sons. In 1885, the company produced the “Labrador”, their first watch series. This was a huge step to Omega becoming one of the world’s most influential timepiece companies.
Nine years later, the brothers produced another series, the 19-ligne caliber. This release set the pace for a new movement that became a standard with its simplifying technology and enhanced functionality in the timepiece industry.
The Brothers continued to succeed, exceeding all expectations, gaining accolades, and resetting new records. In 1932, the brand became the official timekeeper of the Olympic Games, and to date, they still maintain that status. In this same year, the brand also produced the world’s first professional diving watch. At the end of 1940, the brand had already become the world’s largest supplier of watches.
In 1965, they once again created history by becoming the official timepiece of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). In later years, they would go on to become the official timepiece for the James Bond movie. The brand has continued to soar as one of the best watch producers in history.
