Omega SA is a Swiss luxury watchmaker based in Biel/Bienne, Switzerland.
The company was founded by Louis Brandt in La Chaux-de-Fonds in 1848 and operated as La Generale Watch Co. until incorporating the name Omega in 1903, becoming Louis Brandt et Frère-Omega Watch & Co.
In 1984, the company officially changed its name to Omega SA. and opened its museum in Biel/Bienne to the public. Since the company was founded in 1848, Omega has pioneered many innovations.
Britain’s Royal Flying Corps chose Omega watches in 1917 as official timekeepers for its pilots and again in 1940, RAF Pilots' watches were supplied by Omega. Then in the 1940s, we saw the first tourbillon wristwatch and the first of the famous Seamaster watches, whilst the 50s and 60s introduced the legendary Constellation, Speedmaster, Seamaster 300 and Railmaster (now known as the "Trilogy Collection").
Over the years, everyone from John F Kennedy to Elvis Presley has worn and loved Omega watches, in fact, in 1962, astronaut Wally Schirra took his Omega Speedmaster to space on NASA’s Mercury Sigma 7 mission, and in 1969 two Speedmasters landed on the moon, worn by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin.
We have a huge collection of Omega watches spanning the last century from military and vintage dress pieces to more modern sporty models and everything in between. If you are looking for something in particular from Omega do get in touch as we often have pieces that are not listed on the website for a variety of reasons.
