Omega creates mechanical watches of noble beauty. Each faces a challenge unlike any other watch in the world. We would like to invite you to the mysterious place where industrial digital automation meets more than a century of precision watchmaking technology and where this technology enables Omega to trace step by step the creation of each new product. Before doing so, we would like to take you through the story of Omega's history.
In 1848, a 23-year-old Louis Brandt originally founded what is now Omega SA, which operated under the name of La Generale Watch Co. After his death, his two sons took over the company and in 1880, the company moved to a busy town called Biel / Bienne. it was not until 1903 that the company was incorporated and used the word "Omega" in its name, Louis Brandt Fast forward almost 80 years and the company name is changed again. Omega SA is now a subsidiary of the Swatch Group, a major conglomerate in the Swiss watch industry, and is headquartered in Biel/Bienne, Switzerland. Back in the 1960s, NASA approved the Omega Speedmaster for all space missions and EVAs (extra-vehicular activities). More recently, METAS has introduced a new spectrum of replica watches called the Master Chronometer that measures accuracy, water resistance and electromagnetic resistance, and Omega is the only brand to receive this certification. They make outstanding timepieces with unique models that can be used for a variety of activities, from aquatic adventure and water sports to space exploration, and everything in between. They have created many different collections of classic and sports replica watches. They are robust, accurate, durable and reliable. But Omega is not only known for timing sporting events. History was made in 1969, when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were the first to walk on the moon. Both men owned an Omega Speedmaster, but Armstrong left his 105.012 Speedmaster in the lunar module, while Buzz Aldrin chose to wear his Speedmaster replica Professional. thus, the Omega The Speedmaster Professional was the first official watch to be worn on the moon and is now commonly referred to as Moonwatch.
NASA and the Omega Way made the first crossing in 1962, after the inauguration of John F. Kennedy, who promised to make Americans the first men on the moon. Donald 'Deke' Slayton, head of NASA flight crew operations, had two anonymous NASA officials from Houston jeweler Corrigan's, as well as Longines Wittnauer Rolex Daytona, and seven other unpromoted replica watches to select a series of watches. They selected the Omega Speedmaster replica Professional. the Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch is one of the most famous watches of all time, and it still happens to be in production today. This is more of the "back story" behind the iconic watch: it is likely that today you already use a satellite. Whether it's television, telephone or the Internet, your digital footprint is blown away by the network of exquisite machines that shoot around the rock ball we call home at speeds of over 18,000 mph. But until the successful launch of 1,071 artificial satellites, not a single man-made device orbited the Earth. Then, on October 4, 1957, the pistol was launched and the space race began. We are proud of the stories between and behind these boundaries. We are not only concerned with what beauty is, but with beauty. Some people will ask me why I bought the Omega Speedmaster Professional, a hand-wound but rather ordinary chronograph watch. Usually those who ask are neither watch collectors nor interested in watches. Rather, they are simply interested in the jewelry in the watch, or just see them as instruments that tell them where they should be or what time they are doing. To them, if one is looking for a fine watch, there are many reasons to buy a Speedmaster replica. But one thing that can be said about the Speedmaster that can't be said about any other watch is that it played an important role in one of the greatest adventures of the 20th century, if not the entire history of mankind: "landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to Earth."
