Omega was established in 1848 by Louis Brandt in La Chaux de Fonds, Switzerland. The company has been at the forefront of technology and innovation from its early days. In 1947, Omega created the Calber 301 – the first wristwatch tourbillon caliber in the world. Omega made history in 1962 when astronaut Wally Schirra wore a Speedmaster on his Mercury Sigma 7 Mission, making it the first watch to enter outer space. Omega’s Speedmaster became the official watch of NASA on the American space missions such as the Apollo 11 Moonlanding in 1967 and the Apollo 13 in 1970 where the watch played a crucial role in bringing the astronauts back home safely. The brand has also been the official timekeeper of the Olympics since 1932. Since 1995 it has been serving as a crucial tool for the British Secret Service agent “James Bond” when it was first endorsed by Pierce Brosnan in the movie GoldenEye.

These diverse associations make Omega one of the most popular and recognizable watch brands in the world.
