Omega was founded in 1848 as "La Generale Watch Co" at La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland by Louis Brandt, who assembled key-wound precision pocket watches with parts sourced from local craftsmen. Especially with the innovations introduced by his sons in in-house manufacturing and production control, the Omega brand became successful enough to spin off as an independent company; and in 1903, the Omega Watch Co. was born.
For more than 165 years, Omega watches have been the epitome of innovation and precision, with the brand making constant innovations in function and design, like the ground-breaking Master Co-Axial watch movement. With their many partnerships in the sporting disciplines, Omega has cemented its commitment to flawless sports timekeeping...as evidenced by its being appointed Official Timekeeper for 26 Olympic Games.
Omega watches have worldwide popularity, as endorsed by the number of public figures who wear them. Some of these include actors George Clooney, Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig, swimmers Michael Phelps and Chad Le Clos, golfers Rory McIlroy and Sergio Garcia, astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Eugene Cernan, and the fictional but ever popular James Bond!
Pre-owned Omega watches have always been in demand by enthusiastic watch collectors. An estate Omega watch is a chance to own either vintage or discontinued pieces, and even models worn by celebrities but at a more affordable price than a brand new piece!
