The Full Story of Omega`s Watches

The Full Story of Omega`s Watches

Village Watch Center of Boston loves Omega watches. We have grown to truly appreciate their quality in our work with buying, selling, cleaning, and repairing Omega Watch Company Swiss watches.

A Modest But Important Beginning

The Louis Brandt & Fil. company began humbly enough in Louis Brandt’s workshop in La Chaux de Fonds, Switzerland in 1848. He passed away in 1879, and his sons assumed his business with his same exacting standards of quality. The Laborador was released in 1885 as their first mass produced caliber, and in 1892 they released their first minute repeating timepiece.

Becoming Omega

The release of the 19-Omega Caliber in 1894 so changed the company’s standing that the company changed its name to Omega Watch Company as it is known today. In 1905, Omega became the official timekeeper for Swiss sporting events. In 1932, they became the Olympic timekeeper for the Los Angeles games, and that Olympic relationship continues on. They released the Seamaster in 1948 in celebration of their 100th anniversary. In 1962, astronaut Wally Schirra wore an Omega Speedmaster on his Mercury Sigma 7 mission. In 1969, the Speedmaster was part of the first mission to the Moon. President Nixon that year turned down an all gold Omega Speedmaster, saying it was “too valuable.” This statement probably did more for Omega sales than if he had actually worn it. 

Quality That Continues 

Putting aside celebrity endorsements and being the official watch of James Bond, the most important part of Omega’s story for customer’s today is that the quality, reliability and function of these watches continues. People return to Omega generation after generation because the watch’s made today carry the same vision as those handcrafted in a small workshop in 1848.
