Founded in 1848, OMEGA is a watch brand synonymous with excellence, innovation and precision. It has always been the pioneering spirit, which the brand has demonstrated with marine and space companies, that defines it. Since 1965, the OMEGA Speedmaster has been the protagonist of all NASA manned missions, including the six moon landings and many of the most important explorations in addition to the land borders of history.
In addition, it is the most active brand in the field of sports timekeeping. In addition to partnerships with golf, sailing, athletics and swimming sporting events, since 1932 OMEGA has been playing the role of Official Timekeeper for the Olympic Games. Beyond the timing of numerous races in various disciplines, the assignment has led to the creation and development of indispensable tools, which modern athletes rely on.
In the watch field, the history of OMEGA is dedicated to the search for perfection, a tradition perpetuated with the launch of the revolutionary Co-Axial escapement in 1999 and with the introduction of the first Master Chronometer in the world in 2015. With the endorsement of the Federal Institute Swiss Metrology (METAS), today the Master Chronometer certification is the reference standard of the Swiss watch industry in terms of precision, resistance to magnetic fields and chronometric performance.
The most famous celebrity to have chosen OMEGA is perhaps James Bond. Since 1995, the spy and his Seamaster are inseparable and the collaboration with OMEGA is one of the best known internationally.
