Louis Brandt started Omega in 1848. He began the watchmaking journey in his family villa and opened up a workshop in a Swiss village. Brandt’s passion to design watches that showcased accuracy and precision led to the development of world’s finest timepieces.
The cornerstone for Omega’s heritage was innovation. Omega gets inspiration from a variety of things, such as space, sports, ocean, cinema, heritage, and social life. When it comes to the notable work that they have performed, there are a lot of watches to look out for. In 1895, Omega produced Labrador and Gurzelen, their first pocket watch that had an accuracy of 30 seconds a day. Within 4 years, Omega became the largest watch producer in Switzerland with 240,000 timepieces produced annually. In 1903, the name “Omega” was suggested by the company’s banker for their latest watch after which it was adopted as the sole name for every watch produced by the company.
In 1948, Omega Seamaster was introduced. This timepiece was created to challenge tough conditions and notice the most exciting moments experienced by men. Later, Omega Constellation was introduced in 1952 with extremely precise movements and elegant looks. Omega Globemaster was launched in 2015. This was the world’s first Master Chronometer and had set some amazing standards for the world of watchmaking.
