In 1848, founder Louis Brandt created the first Omega timekeeping device, making Omega a pioneer in the field of watchmaking. By 1900, Omega was one of Switzerland's first industrial wristwatch manufacturers.

Since then, Omega has been associated with some of the world's greatest and most prestigious events. The Omega Speedmaster Professional is the only watch to pass NASA's tests for its Apollo Lunar Programme, and in 1969 became the first watch ever worn on the moon by Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin Jr. during the historic 1969 moon landing.

Omega specialises in innovative, yet "très chic" timepieces. The Omega co-axial escapement is a groundbreaking new watch system, which reduces sliding friction, making watches less sensitive to shocks and therefore improves the watch time-keeping accuracy.

Omega has also been the official timekeeper of 22 Olympic Games and was the official timekeeper for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.

Omega watches combine action and elegance with cutting-edge technology. The high-tech Omega Seamaster has been James Bond's timepiece of choice since 1995. Both Daniel Craig and Pierce Brosnan have donned an Omega Seamaster Professional watch in James Bond films. Daniel Craig has also worn the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean.

Every Omega watch passes strict tests before reaching your wrist. This includes temperature-resistance, shock-resistance and vibration-resistance tests – ensuring each piece is, and will remain, a high-quality timekeeping device.
